I marched back in 1982 with the Anaheim Kingsmen drum and bugle corps and did that years tour that ended up in DCI Montreal. Then started teaching HS drum line but also started working as a set drummer, which curtailed a lot of marching activity, but I try to keep up with what the kids are doing these days and let me tell ya, drum corps is pretty crazy these days
I marched with my middle school's marching band, and starting in August, will be marching with the Easton Area High School drum line. We are also going to the orange bowl in Miami in December, and we are the only HS marching band to perform this year, along with 2 or 3 college marching bands.
I played snare for both years in middle school (grades 7 and 8), and this year for 9th, im playing bass 1.
While it was cool, Corps wasn't enticing to me because of the sheer cost and I was always a frugal type (never got student loans through college, etc.). My brother did it, he won Div III in 2004 (Oregon Crusaders) marched Euphonium I believe.
