Madison Scouts and Casper Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps

Hello All!

This Wednesday at 8PM at Olsen Field on the Campus of Morningside College the Madison Scouts and the Casper Troopers will be performing a FREE show for all who are in the area. If you are around I highly recommend coming out to the show. Drum and Bugle Corps is like marching band but on Steroids! These young people practice 8-12 hours a day and travel all around the country to compete in competitions much like the ones we go to in the fall. On Wednesday they are in between shows and Morningside College brought them in to put on a show for us! If you are in town I highly recommend coming out. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED! The Show is FREE and it will last about an hour. All is welcome. I hope to see you all there.
