While having a discussion on the Drum Corps Af facebook page, it came up about what is the average on the field now, as some there still label it senior corps. 


Does anyone know?

I think that means "senior in high school."

Speaking of age, the average age of the Govies trumpet section this year was over 50 -- yes 50. We figured that the 5 of us we had over 70 years of competitive drum corps marching experience. We called our section "Team Tapioca" since we heard that some people eat tapioca when they get old. We don't think of ourselves as old, just seasoned veterans. And yes, all of us we marched the entire show asking for no special accommodations.  If "Team Tapioca" can still stay relevant and active at our age, any reason you give for not marching any longer is simply lame. If you love the sport, keep playing. We do and are looking forward to next year.
