The Company - success in the USA

 

 

For two weeks at the beginning of August The Company travelled over to the USA to take part in the Drum Corps International World Championships in Indiana.

The Corps competed in 3 contests (Clifton NJ, Allentown PA and Avon Lake OH) prior to the Open Class Championships in Michigan City IN on Tuesday 8th August where they were place 8th.

They then moved onto Indianapolis IN to compete in the World Class Championships on Thursday 10th August at the magnificent Lucas Oil Stadium where they achieved 30th Place. 

To conclude their trip, on Saturday 12th August they competed in DrumLine Battle where they won their Semi Final and only just missed out on being Champions.

On the same day they also competed in the SoundSport event where they were Gold medal winners plus as well as being Best In Class & Best unit with under 50 members, they were awarded the top prize becoming the 2017 SoundSport World Champions.

Before setting off back home the Corps arranged to donate their props, that had been made for them in the USA, and their flag poles to the school that hosted them when they arrived, West Milford High School in Clifton NJ and their bedding was donated to homeless charities in Indianapolis via the Mayor Office.  A great way to ensure that these items were recycled and made available to those that need them.

DCUK would like to congratulate The Company on their successes and for being such great ambassadors for the UK activity.
