GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Just a quick note to say the greatest Drum Corps show in local history takes place this Saturday at TCF stadium on the U of M campus. It's like 25 great halftimes in a row.
The best corps in the world are all in one place at one time. If you like this sort of thing, as I do, being a Dunkirk, New York native (once the drum corps capital of America), then you don't want to miss this show. I think it starts at 1:30 in the afternoon and runs for hours.
Of course, the Minnesota Brass will be there, but all the great "Junior" Corps (Up to 21 years old) will be performing and they are GOOD!.
The Madison Scouts, The Crusaders, Phantom Regiment, the Blue Devils to name a few, they are coming from all over the country, from California to Boston.
I'll see you there. I hope. Last year, they tried this and had to stop after only 1/3 of the show because of a tornado alert. No such bad luck this time.
