    Sounds like something the Mexicans would think of! speaking of mexico, I dislike them since they made me sick last time i went down there.
     
  4. lara don't be silly,
    the drum corp buses will all explode, or all the directors will die in freak taxidermy accidents.

    why?

    because nothing exiting ever happens in cedar rapids, it's an unbreakable law of nature.

    Lara --

    Make certain you get a look at the Americanos buses. It will make you think twice about drum corps. A few years ago we passed the circa 1940's round-back death traps that they were using and commented on the poor condition of their transportation. Last tey were still using the same buses. I felt sorry for them, but I sent my donations to Phantom and SCV like I do every year.

    Folks,

    The Americanos are inactive this summer. They will not be marching!

    Phantom has new unis for 2005

    I need to update the list of corps that are coming, as it has changed...thanks for the reminder Doc Fox!

    Here's the list:

    Blue Knights
    Colts
    Madison Scouts
    Pioneers
    Blue Stars
    Colt Cadets
    Phantom Regiment
    Troopers


    Also, the Cedar Rapids Grant Wood All City Drum Corps will entertain at halftime. We're a small group that's just getting off the ground. The horn line at the moment consists of a very small group of volunteers from the local high schools. This is the first time the public will see the horns out on the field, so it's pretty important to us!
