Jeanne and Mark are Drum Corps enthusiasts. We typically go to 2 or 3 Drum Corps competitions each year and have been following Drum Corps, off and on, since the early 1970’s.
In 1990 we began attending the annual Drum Corps Associates (DCA – Senior Corps) World Championships, and attended each year’s championships from 1990 thru 2005 except for 1996. After 2005 we stopped attending for a few years while it was in Rochester. One year we bought tickets for a Rochester show, but ended up not going due to a bad weather forecast. In 2015 we had a GREAT family time in Rochester with Ty, including seeing Jurasic World.
One of our favorite shows was 1997 in Allentown. Bob Jones was a snare drummer in the Reading Buccaneers and it was very special to be able to share that experience with him.
Here is our history of seeing the World Championship
