Neat stuff. I like it. 

Would have been nice to see what Star of Indiana could have done had they stayed. The Cadets had a hot and highly successful 1990s. Some great shows in there. My favorite is 1993, but 1995 is a close second. 

I will also always remember the 1990s for the Madison Scouts amazing showmanship and some of the most fan-friendly, entertaining shows I've ever seen.

Sadly of the 45 or so who appeared at Championships in the 1990's, more than 20 are no longer with us. RIP.
