    West Aurora High School from Aurora Illinois, 2006-2009, and we don't have any trophies because we don't compete. We don't compete for two reasons:
    1) the band director thinks (and rightfully so) that marching band isn't really about competition for kids. Its about having fun and representing the school (btw he marched with the Phantom Regiment)
    and 2) we don't need some trophy to tell us what we already know ;-)

    Moses Lake High School, Moses Lake, Washington (State), 1971 - 1972, 1973 - 1974 (spent 1972 - 1973 in Argentina as a Rotary International Exchange Student).

    I see by Vulgano Brother's stats we probably marched in the same Lilac Festival and Apple Blossom parades (Spokane and Wenatchee). Tell me this, VB: do you remember Band Day at Joe Albi Stadium? Do they still do this albeit somewhere else?

    As for the flute players . . . yeah, I dated one . . . no, two . . . but I married one of the Drill Team Girls.

    Buckhannon, WV
    Buckhannon-Upshur High School 1959-1961 1st chair trumpet and section leader 1960-61
    Superior ratings at adjudication for every year since 1936 and still going in 2009.

    We always thought of ourselves as a "Playing organization that happens to march, not a marching organization that plays."

    My class started the jazz band program at the school and played with Buddy DeFranco at the jazz band festival my senior year.

    Both my kids and now my grand-daughters are members of this great band. My son followed his old man as 1st chair trumpet for 2 years, my daughter was all-state bass clarinet and the gran-daughters are highly placed musicians as well.
