Some positive comments on the Seattle Cascade Drum and Bugle Corps

Our house fronts the school playfields, so there are few people in town more directly affected by the Corps than we are. Although we understand that the length and intensity of the Corps practices can be annoying to some people, we found the experience a very positive one. The dedication, talent, tenacity, and grit shown by these amazing young people was very impressive. Talented musicians to begin with, these young people endure 12-hour days of intense physical activity (comparable to Army boot camp) to perfect a 15 minute routine. And they pay for the privilege!
So regardless of whether you love or hate the sounds of their practices, you can only admire the dedication shown by a remarkable group of young people!
Rick and Reinhild Thompson
