I’ve deleted the previous post because some people took offense to it.

Those people completely missed the point.

I was serious when I said, “if you want to march drum corps, then DO IT!”

I’m sorry if you made excuses when you were young enough to participate.

For the rest of you, learn from their mistakes and get out there if you want to.
Don’t be that guy in thirty years who says, “thanks jerk, I COULDN’T!”
Do you think that any 15-21 year old can really afford to spend $2000 on tour fees and not work all summer?
(if you’re still wondering, the answer is “not very many”)
This post was for eligible students/individuals who have been sitting around, saying “geez, i’d like to do that”
Corps still have open spots! It’s not too late! It’s even cheaper now because you missed many of the pre-season camps!
Take your horn, sleeping bag, and a boat load of confidence (and you might want to email to make sure that the corps of your dreams still has open spots first) and go try out! You never know.

Again, I apologize to anyone I’ve offended by making this sound so easy.

Gee Alley, I wish I would have read the last post! Sounds like you got some “feathers ruffled”. 🙂

I agree, if doing Corp. is something that you want to do then, go for it! Nothing is easy in life and if you really want something you need to work for it and TOWARD it.

Best regards.
