A DCA corps in Toronto/Hamilton/Kitchener-Waterloo area

I have received an e-mail from Jason Adams:

Hello Ambassadors Alumni

I am sending this email to your organization with a message of hope and possibility.

Many drum corps are banding together and combining resources to create a new DCA corps in Southern Ontario.

We have high hopes and the momentum is building.

We are asking you if there is any interest with this idea.

This could be in the form of volunteers, marching members or old equipment.

Please respond to this email with any suggestions or assistance that you can offer.

Please check out the Facebook page.!/group.php?gid=158197110862715&ref=ts

Hope that we can chat soon.

GAS 2008

John Jones has asked me to distribute the following especially for those corps alumni in Ontario:

Hello Everyone

This is a general email to everyone who has expressed an interest in receiving information about GAS 2008 Plans are well underway to make this the best drum corps reunion that has ever been held in Ontario. The organizing committee recently published our preliminary Calendar of Events for the weekend. am attaching a copy of that document to this email. It can also be accessed on our website at:

The opening ceremonies on Friday night will be a wonderful demonstration of pageantry as well as a great party and dance. We can all let loose and get reacquainted. For new folks attending GAS for the first time, you cannot help but meet someone you know and like all drum corps events the talking starts as if time has stood still.

Saturdays Individual and Small Small Group show is almost full. Applications have been overwhelming and are still coming in. Several alumni member corps are performing as well as a wonderful assortment of small groups and ensembles. This event is always a high lite of the GAS weekend. Don't miss it.

Saturday evening is when we all get dressed up for the banquet with great food and performances by all of the choral ensembles from the GAS members. We also use this time to honor those people who have passed over the last year (far too many). Saturday evening ends with what has become a GAS tradition - the jam session - all of the horn players from all of the member units (and anyone else who wants to join in) get together and play. Great sound and great fun.

Hotel Rooms -

We have expanded the number of hotel rooms at the Stage West and Delta. We strongly recommend that you book now. Plans are that we will we will use a shuttle bus to move attendees from the hotels to the event so that no one has to worry about drinking and driving.

Corps Table Identification

If your corps or group reserves a table of ten (10 for the banquet, we will tailor the decorations to uniquely identify your organization. Please let me know by return email of indicate this on your reservation. This is a nice touch for your group.


There is one ticket for the weekend. The cost is $85CDN. This ticket entitles you to entry into all of the weekends events and the banquet. Please note there is no pricing for individual events.


Our preliminary numbers are already over 400 people mostly committed by our American and Canadian GAS partners. The Registration Committee has asked that we encourage everyone to get their registration forms in early so that they can prepare the registration packages, name tags and banquet tickets. You will receive and acknowledgment of your registration and will be advised where to pick up your package. A registration form can be found on our website at : . I am also attaching a copy with this email.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. If I cannot answer the question, I will refer it to the right committee and ensure that you get an answer.
