But to Garth, it's nothing but fun. It's fun to get away from what you do the rest of your life. Director: Gail R. Royer, Bell- flower, 6, Sunnyvale, CA Then when I got to college, some guys told me about them. I applied for the corps, auditioned by tape, and got a call from Wayne Downey to tell me I was a Blue Devil. I had never seen a drum corps in person. Also in his first year, he plays soprano. I was having too much fun to leave it, but I just got too old and had to move up.
I joined the 'B' corps in its first year. I had never played a horn before, but they taught me. I stuck it out because I wanted to be in the 'A' corps. I'm glad I did. It's great.

Wes-ern Corps Freelancers may have given the corps some motivation. But Parker thinks it was psychological, too. We got more confident, and decided to be really prepared by the first show.

Then came Repertoire: You Are the Wes1ern Corps Troopers Jim Jones had a dream in From a small regiment kya hai town in Wyoming, he wanted to create a drum and bugle corps that would someday make the finals of the American Legion National Cham- pionships.
What he created was the Troopers of Casper, Wyoming, and as everyone knows, they've done a whole lot more than just make finals. Jim's drum corps experience dates back towhen he went to a Legion convention with his mother and saw his first corps. I said, 'I like that! Finally, in '57, he founded the Troopers. I never figured we'd win the championship. From then on, the corps climbed, becoming more and more popular with crowds every- where. Finally, inthe Troopers picked up their first national title, the VFW championship.
Jones smiles. It's nice to win, but trying to win is the name of the game. Jones really believes it, and that's what he tells the Troopers.
Jones is like a father to the kids, taking an active interest in their lives. It's his Jones' talk isn't idle. In the for kids who want to succeed to be love of kids that has kept him in the beginning he taught the entire around others who want to succeed, activity since And if they do work hard, pay people-it's time off from my job.

BoxModesto, CA Seae lmperlials Six of DCl's ten championships have been brightened by the laughing,jumping, dancing presence of the Seattle, Washington, Imperials.

The junior corps kids aren't there mainly to compete, but to learn-about music, about themselves, and about others. I like being part of that. Director: Scott Stewart, P. BoxMadison, WI They are going to perform the ballet Spartacus, and they are going to do it right. In fact, it's almost as if they consider a warm-up for Inthe Phantom Regiment hired as consultants the head of the theater costuming department at State University of New York and a Broadway choreographer.
And what they've done is something to see. The color guard will carry the story, with the corps playing bit parts the crowd in some scenes and big parts the coliseum in another. Spartacus is a hero of the Thracians, whom the Romans over- ran in 72 BC.
He is brought to Rome as a slave and forced to fight as a gladiator. Surviving that, he or- ganizes his fellow slaves into a revolt to overthrow the Romans. He loses; the Romans crucify him and the other slaves. But in death, Spartacus triumphs as a hero of endurance and the fight for freedom. It's hard enough to do on a stage, and nearly impossible on a drum corps field. But the staff and kids of the Regiment are adamant- not only can it work, it can win. Scott Newborn was called in to choreograph.
Doing a ballet set before Christ, you can't very well carry rifles, and there has to be more than flags. If you say 'Picture a party scene,' you know how it should look. I did the same for Spartacus. In the carnival scene, I had to create that atmosphere, complete with all the colors and Cesario fills that role. Cesario says corps before. Scott Newborn is dancing. In the battle, I had to stage the decision to keep the red capes excited.
Scott's hardest job has been to scheme. Red represents the Romans; Phantom knows it's taking a work within the image of the purple is the rebels. When you see a chance with this.
But the staff and corps-making the movements fit lot of purple, you'll know you're kids are convinced they can win-if the guard, not vice-versa. The guard looking at the slaves. As the show not the championship, at least the is very physical, very hard-working.

Shepard was a booster that comes from hard work and our ups and downs-everyone knows member of the famous Chicago travel.

However, unique and fearless moves, couples with exciting brass, have helped the Sky Ryders inch up from 31st to 14th in the past four years, and the sky's the limit. Director: Lee Carlson, P. BoxHutchinson, KS Guardsmen After getting off to a slow start in '81, the Guardsmen charged steadily ahead to nearly regain the top status they'd held for four of the past five years.
Though they didn't quite make finals this time, they still turned many fans into anglophiles with their British air and demanding repertoire. Look for the chaps from Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates, Illinois, to make another bid for the finalist spot this year. Director: Ray Harty, 20 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg, IL Equally sharp is the record they've forged for themselves in 10 years. In '81, their late-season surge was not quite enough, but those who know their illustrious and consistent history are betting on their return to the elite dozen in the near future.
Director: Bob Lendman, P. BoxLacrosse, WI Nniah1S A few years ago, the Knights seemed to be in a decline. There, they finished fifth, then second. Expected by many to return for the class A crown in '81, they surprised all by hitting the field bigger, stronger, newly uniformed, and capable of holding their own in open class. Their placing, highest of the top newcomers, showed they were indeed ready for the big- time. Director: Bill Neuleib, P.

Director: Sam McCormick, P. Box 83, Stillwater, MN The Midwest teems with entertaining corps-large to small, open-class through class A to cadets. Prospect, IL. It was especially nice to see the resurgence of several Midwestern corps that had been all but defunct prior to the '81 season.
That spirit has taken many forms during In January, it was the spirit of the people that helped to pull the city together during its worst winter storm in years. In April, the spirit shifted to baseball, as the Braves broke a century-long record by winning their first 13 games of the season. The edition of Spirit is out to show the world what a world-class city Atlanta really is. Like the city it represents, the Spirit of Atlanta is updating its image, its style, and its brand of entertainment.
Otherwise, the Spirit of Atlanta is looking forward to a new, more contemporary approach. The corps' emotionally powerful horn line and technically strong drum line will be bolstered by a more unified, total visual presentation and a larger, more sophisticated color guard. Perhaps the most significant change, though, will be in Spirit's repertoire.
