First (half show exhibition) Carlisle PA high school 1974 (DCW has it for sale in Jim Jones collection).

First competition: Amhearst MA last place by 30 points week before DCA (corps first show in 2 years)

Last stadium J Birney Crum

Best stadium: Christy Mattewson Bucknell Univ. Lively crowd that you could really feel.

Worst stadium (small one) somewhere upstate NY with horrible lighting and press box had windows so dirty you couldn’t see in. And local politician giving welcome speech was drunk off his ###
 

Worst stadium (big one) New Orleans SuperDome 1978 AL Nationals. You can probably hear our show still echoing. Could not hear the rest of the corps for the echo, you had to watch feet going backfield
