Members of Dutch Boy were part of a study by Wilfred Laurier University this season, measuring the fitness and health benefits of marching drum corps. The kids were tested, weighed, measured etc before the season and again at the mid point of second tour. Here's the article with the results..... http://www.wlu.ca/news_detail.php?grp_id=28&nws_id=782

No surprise to me, but it's good that the benefits were quantified.

From talking with several folks with the Madison Scouts, I know that some of the kids go through two or three different sets of pants as they lose weight over the summer. And, that's with eating four meals a day plus whatever munchies are on the buses!
