It arrived much sooner than I expected, but I'm finally marching my last year of drum corps.
Being involved in this activity since I was 16 has afforded me so many amazing opportunities for which I will be forever grateful for.
For 2018 (wow, that sounds weird) the Blue Devils member tour fee has been set at $3,550. While it takes approximately three times this amount to take one person on the road for a summer, the corps is able to cover the majority of that cost (food, housing, facility/equipment rental), however must rely on the membership to make up the difference.
Aging out with this drum corps has been a dream of mine since before I even began participating in the activity. However you are able to contribute to that goal, whether through donating or sharing my campaign, is IMMENSELY appreciated!
See you on the road.
