DCUK 2007 Champions crowned

It was Sunday 16th September in Burton Upon Trent when DCUK crowned its 2007 Champions.

Performing to a very appreciative audience of Drum Corps fans, all 8 DCUK member Corps executed superb shows and despite, once again, the British weather trying its hardest to dampen things there was no chance of that happening with both the International Open and National Open Class contests providing a nail biting finish.

Kidsgrove Scouts came out on top in the International Open Class to take the British Drum Corps Championships title for the first time, with The Senators coming in only 0.1 points behind. Last years Champions, Black Knights, took 3rd place with the joint talents of Southern Aurora and Legion Star coming in 4th.  (DCUK would like to apologise for the slight delay in the announcement of the results of this class on the night due to an issue with the spreadsheet calculation for 4th place and, to ensure the right score was provided, the figures were recalculated before being announced)

In the National Open Class Poynton Commodores edged ahead of Concord to take that title with Staffordshire Knights coming in 3rd and finally Black Knights Cadets took the National Junior Class title.  Full recaps available here.

So another season drew to close with top class entertainment provided by all Corps and thanks to all the members, staff and supporters for making 2007 another successful year. 

This is DCUK - the Home of British Drum Corps.
