Nicknames of Marchers You Marched With

Got mine when they named a drill hole "Rufus" and I filled it mid-season. The rest, they say, is history. Over my marching years there has also been Root Beer, Hey-Ray, Mr Nuts, and nicknames our entire 3rd baritone section which I can't repeat in polite company.

Never prouder than when our son got his nickname marching DCA and carried it forward into DCI.

I think it's agreed, however, that the best are assigned and not created by the MM.

Or any company!!!   LOL

The infamous "Stan" (for those who know about a particular DCA corps) was also a drill-spot nickname that stuck with the person who filled that spot.

And Hey-Ray was also known as Mr. Low... for reasons I cannot disclose here. :laughing:

My son's nickname his first year was Baby Giraffe, because that is what the tech's said he looked like when he marched.  He got better, but was forever known as Baby Giraffe.

Couple of the more memorable (and safe for DCP) nicknames.  Plenty of other nicknames that were earned on the bus and that is where they shall remain...

  • Cymbal player at Northern Aurora known as Speedbump.  Not for his marching technique but because he had been hit by a car once or twice
  • Contra player also at NA that could never remember what Shakos were called.  He called it a "Shaniqua" once so that became his name
  • Laziest baritone in the line at Magic become known as "Max," as in always giving maximum effort
  • Soprano at Magic that wore a "horn master" t-shirt became not very nicely known as "horn master"...he did not last very long
  • Mello/Alto drill spot that was never filled was named "Eileen Uelicke." That even made the mello section t-shirt that year..."Absolute Altos" I still have that tucked away somewhere.
  • One of the horn sargents in '99 name rhymed with "Cat Spray" don't know why I remember that one. 
  • I got the name Fester in triathlon but that is another story...
