Welcome!

2017 PIM GroupThe Lancers (Alumni) Drum and Bugle Corps was formed in 1990 following a reunion; the competitive corps had folded and dissolved in the winter of 1983.  Today we boast a roster of over 100 members where folks come from all walks of life and range in age from 15 to 80 plus!  We always welcome new members, with and without drum corps experience.  There is no cost to you, other than the purchase of a pair of marching shoes. We supply you with everything you will need.  Stop by and check us out at our next rehearsal or event.  All information can be found on this blog site.  If you have questions please leave your comments here or reach out to our business managers, Sharon Hedges or Andy Crouse.

Plymouth, here we come!!

Well, the time is nearly here! November 16 – 18 will find the Lancers in Plymouth, Massachusetts participating in their America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration. Saturday will find us marching in the morning parade – escorting Santa into town! Saturday evening will find us participating in the National Senior Drum & Bugle Corps Reunion concert.

If you are a member, the survey from Sharon went out last week. Please be sure to complete it! If you did not receive the survey please let us know so that we can get it to you immediately!

See you all in Plymouth!!

Preparing for Plymouth!

There are only two more rehearsals before our trip to Plymouth!!  It is so very important for each and every member to present on both dates!!

Sunday, November 4 at the Lyric (color guard at St. Paul’s) and Sunday, November 11 at the York Jewish Community Center located at 2000 Hollywood Drive, York PA 17403. (This is close to York Suburban High School where we originally hosted PIM.) Both days are 2pm to 5pm. November 11 will be a time to work out logistics for going on and off the performance floor at Plymouth and do several run throughs of not only our show, but our parade tune as we escort Santa into town at Plymouth.

Continue to review our previous show music, memorize Jingle Bells and American Salute! Having issues with some rhythms/music? We have members who are willing to help! Let us know here, send us a private message, or speak to someone at rehearsal. We are here to support each other! Also, be sure your uniform is clean and that you are not missing any buttons or other parts. Did you lose or gain weight and need to be refitted? Sleeves or pants need to be shortened or let down? November 4 is your last chance!

If you have any questions about these rehearsals please let us know.  There will be a survey going out shortly regarding Plymouth details.

See you all on November 4 and 11!!
