Kidsgrove Scouts set off for USA


Over the next 24 hours the Kidsgrove Scouts will be embarking on their second visit to the Drum Corps Associates World Championships in the USA, the first taking place in 2010, with a two week trip including competing in two contests prior to the Championships and also an exhibition performance.

On Saturday 25th August the Corps will be competing at the DCA Fanfare 2012 contest in Bridgeport, Connecticut and then the following day they will be in action in Pennsauken, New Jersey at the DCA Pennsauken Invitational.

On Thursday 30th August the Corps will travel to Annapolis, Maryland where that evening they will be exhibiting at the DCA At The Dock event along with 4 other Corps to help publicise the upcoming Championships that weekend.

On Friday 31st August some of the Corps will be taking part in the Individual & Ensembles event and then on Saturday 1st September at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium will be the Open Class Preliminary contest which is being broadcast live on the DCA FanNetwork.

The top 10 Corps from Prelims then move forward to the main event - the DCA World Championship Finals - on Sunday 2nd September.

The Corps travel back home on Monday 3rd September and will be back in action in the UK on Sunday 9th September in Biggleswade.

We are hoping to get regular updates from the Corps over the two weeks and we all wish them every success and hope they have a great trip
