Butler, PA was the sight of this Championship Show. Anyone have any memories?

 

Was there a parade? I don't recall.

Only place I remember staying was some elementary school on a hill. Every morning there was fog and maybe one house for miles!

I liked the show but It didn't have that "Homey" feeling like Marion did! I do remember everybody went to the pool, which was not the best thing to do before going to finals.

 

My most vivid memory was DeLasalle Oaklands last not being held out and DM Joel Alleyne turns around to acknowledge the audience for a while while the chord is being played at FFFF and he turns around, cuts them off and then members start collapsing on the field.

Making finals there in 1981 with the Long Island Kingsmen.  It was a miracle that we were able to field a corps that year.

  Bonus - a video surfaced of us from this show.  As far as I know, it is the only video of Kingsmen from 1981.
