The Reading Buccaneers Drum & Bugle Corps is proud to announce that the corps has entered into a new sponsorship arrangement with the Morgantown American Legion Post 537, Commander Roger Jacobs. The sponsorship encompasses logistical and vehicular support for the corps and further deepens the corps’ ties to the Morgantown/Elverson area. Twin Valley School District has been a key partner to the Buccaneers since 2004.

“We are grateful to Commander Jacobs, Michele Williams and the entire membership of Post 537 for their support,” said Buccaneers Assistant Director Bill Snook. “The generosity of the Post has a real and direct impact on the Buccaneers, saving us considerable wear and tear and fuel costs on our vehicles. The Buccaneers’ proud association with the American Legion dates back to our founding in 1957. We support the American Legion’s work and encourage all former members of the military to become members of the post.”

Founded in 1957, the mission of the Reading Buccaneers Drum & Bugle Corps is to provide men and women of all ages a unique and enriching educational experience in the performing arts in which they develop as individuals and as performers. The Buccaneers were founding members of Drum Corps Associates and won the first-ever DCA World Championships in 1965 and won eleven additional titles since.

2013 DCA Competitive Season Comes to a Close

Another terrific season has come to a close and I can honestly say that the author of this article has a new outlook. For the first time in a very long time, I had the chance to sit and view a great many of the performances on Saturday and Sunday. The comments that I heard from fans, DCA executives and judges was that the level of competition in both classes of DCA was the highest its ever been. All of the corps came into this weekend and provided the audience with shows that were their best of the season. Some of the corps surprised many because of the amazing level of improvement that they showed; not only from one year to the next but from the beginning of this season to the end.

In the end, the Reading Buccaneers claimed the 2013 DCA Open Class championship, and the White Sabers won their first-ever DCA Class A championship. Congratulations to the Buccaneers and the White Sabers on fantastic finishes while other corps were biting at their heals. Most of all congratulations to the entire field of DCA drum corps for the awesome shows and the spectacular level of competition from top to bottom.
