Drum Corps World: August Issue Now Available

Dear readers:

This is the final pre-DCI edition of the magazine and it’s full of written reports and photography from the last couple of weeks.  There are 13 DCI show reviews and one DCA report, plus I selected photos of each corps that participated in five DCI shows that we didn’t have assignments for staff members to cover.  I have received between 3,000 and 4,000 photos from the staff photographers across the United States and so this was an opportunity to use more from the collection.

The next edition, dated and released on August 17, will contain material covering shows between August 2 and August 11, including full coverage of all events at the 2018 Drum Corps International Championships in Indianapolis, IN.

An all-to-fast schedule of competitions is heading to a conclusion for the junior corps next week, the DCA corps Labor Day weekend and then the European championships that happen during the latter part of September.  Those days of mid-May to October are long gone, but we are fortunate to still get seven weeks on the DCI calendar and 10 weeks for the all-age corps.

I hope everyone is able to either be in Indianapolis, watching on FloMarching or seeing the “live” broadcast to more than 600 movie theaters from coast to coast on August 9.

Steve Vickers, publisher
