I loved the Allentown show. Shouldn't that one be here? You know DCI East, DCI South, etc..

NON-DCI!!!!

Allentown wasn't always a DCI show. It should be on the list.

Even though Manning Bowl (RIP) was considered our backyard, CNE stadium in Toronto was the best field, acoustics and crowd that this addled brain can remember. Loved the PA announcer with a very slight Quebec accent too.

The Shriner's program books and posters were classy too. I have the poster from 1970. I think they were pen and ink sketches by a guy named Don Daber. I heard that he used me as one of the models for the 1971 or 72 poster, carrying the smallest of 4 marching timpani.

30+ years and 30 lbs. ago.

Hey there Lancerlady:

How are you goin'??

The ah, question is NON-DCI show!

My TWO favorites are the U. S. OPEN and the American International!!

Just goes to show that small town shows can have great crowds too!

By default I chose Marion and the Harding High School show. What a great Drum Corps town. Every townie I met there knew about drum corps. We never had the cops called on us for rehearsing too loud, and they were even cool about losing to us in softball. I can't think of too many other places quite like it.

There's a lot of history packed into that little stadium. It should be consecrated as a shrine.
