stability and dominance....a trivia question

Recommended Posts

It is indeed a shame that so many major competitors have fallen by the wayside over the problems, recruiting/retention problems, and competitiveness have all been nails for those groups.  However, 8 corps have made word-class finals in all 5 decades of DCI (70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, 10's).  Name them (no cheating) .Here are some interesting hints...…….


They have won 43 of the 47 championships; however, 2 of these corps have not won the title.

Five of the eight corps have been in finals for 38 consecutive years (or more).

2012 was the last time that all 8 of these corps were in finals.

Off the top of my head:

SCV has made every final.

Blue Devils, in ever since 1974.

Cavaliers only missed a couple of times in the 1970s.

Cadets, in since 1980 and made a couple of 1970s finals.

Phantom Regiment, in ever since 1974.  (These five are the ones with the 39 consecutive years.)

Crossmen first made it in 1977.  Early 80s, check.  Early 90s, check.  Early 00s, check.  In now, check.  Yes, they have each decade covered.

Spirit first made it in 1978.  Early 80s, check.  1990, check.  Middle 00s, check.  Early 10s, check.  Count them in.

Madison has never been out two years in a row, so they must be the 8th such corps.
