    If you are in Jacksonville, I'd recommend Boston Crusaders as well. I know a couple of high school folks that auditioned for them and made it in. (Myself not included :( )

    What happened to the Empire Statesmen??? Also...do you know why the Brigadiers collapsed after so many successful years?

    I'm not sure about the Statesmen. This year was their farewell tour, but I don't know what precipitated that. The Brigs still dress for parades and stuff, but don't do a field show anymore. A while back, there was some controversy surrounding their fundraising, specifically the bingo hall that they were running. I'm not positive of the details, but I remember that being the beginning of the end. It's a shame.
