I've heard YEA on verge of bankruptcy and looking to sell the corps, and tuition recently increased. I hope that if they do fold, members can get that $5K back. 

I would probably use the payment plan option rather than paying in full up front this year.

I usually don’t post on forums but I would like to counter some of the negativity being posted here about the Cadets.   I am a retired music educator and a member of the Santa Clara Vanguard Admin sta

Hey guys. I usually stay clear of this stuff and I appreciate those of you that understand my position. I'm basically going to tell you what has already been said on here. There are some smart pe

I have a high school senior who auditioned for the corps.  He got a callback (woo!) but did not get a spot... too young and inexperienced, but they liked him and said they'd give his name to some othe

87?  Or 85? 

I think '87 in WI.  Look at the banners on the upper deck.  I think 1990 was the last year they allowed that.

Phew!  Memories are grey from back then!

In fact, seeing the "Bloo" banner in the stands, I don't think they had that until '89, so this probably is '90 Buffalo.  The last year for banners, IIRC.

I don't want to kick something that is already beaten up, but...

Every time you donate anything to The Cadets or YEA, you are helping subsidize the settlement they made with George Hopkins, who did awful things to too many people. 

There are many other corps around who have protected children and youth are who are more deserving of your money.

I am truly sorry if that hurts anyone, but it is the truth.

Yeah but that's not likely to happen.  I'm sure the drum corps would love to jump ship (with the name, equipment and staff) but considering the Cadets are YEA's primary function...

yes and the Cadets need out from those three letters

The organization is trying to spin off the cadets and the band organization. This is not a secret. They are not trying to hide it. It's all anyone could talk about at UIL and midwest.

agreed, confirmed by people who would actually know. face it, they were a mess before the scandal broke. that only exacerbated it, and there's no easy quick fix

Please provide a copy of the (very confidential) settlement document that proves this.

You can't and won't.

Every dollar that goes in goes to providing a great program for the kids.
