Dear readers:

The 2018 season has gotten off to a great start and this issue offers reports on six DCI competitions, two DCA events, a DCUK contest and an SDCA exhibition.  It also breaks a previous record for the number of pages, 132 in June 2018, by two, at 134 information-, photo- and feature-packed pages!

I want to acknowledge and thank all the DCI and DCA show sponsors for their advertising support, as well as the year-around display advertising to the manufacturers and suppliers of equipment, uniforms, accessories and services offered to the marching arts.

Three weekly editions are coming up, dated July 6, July 13 and July 20 (each uploaded to the Internet on Fridays), then a one-week break during which we will accumulate content for the full monthly August issue, scheduled to be released on Friday, August 3.  

The publication next week is planned to have 12 show reviews from eight different staff writers, plus continuing displays of outstanding photography from our worldwide staff.

We have sent two e-mails regarding the need for each reader to re-register that you would like to continue receiving Drum Corps World at no charge.  This is not only a formality, but it’s necessary to conform to new government requirements that we have digital proof that every e-mail address on the list has specifically asked to receive our 17-issue schedule.  

If you haven’t responded yet, please use the button in the e-mail message to ensure that future editions will come your way.

Steve Vickers, publisher
