DC Triva 23

The first World Open was held in 1963 in New Jersey, at Roosevelt Stadium. Can you you give us the name of the Stadium where it was held in 1964, and who was the surprise exhibition in the evening.
NO Cheating!!!!!

I'll admit I had to look up the name of the stadium ( Hedges Stadium ) in Bridgeport, Ct. , one of those fantastic places for watching a contest.

I will guess the exhibition was the Hurricanes, who would have placed second at
the Senior portion of the World Open. If not, the Skyliners who had won the senior section the day before. Definitely not the Caballeros, who were not competing against the corps of the newly formed DCA, who were the corps in competition at the senior section of the World Open.

Final answer in Exhibition: The motorcycle capped Lightning Bolts!

This question brought back some great memories for me: I went to the 1965 Barnum Festival contest and remember the Yankee Rebels practicing furiously trying to move up the ladder, they opened with the often discussed " Conquest".

I always had a soft spot for the Hurricanes, they always seemed to get lost in all the Cabs vs Skyliners rivalry stuff, and every now and then Reading would pass them all. There was a thread a while back about whooshing through horns rather than blowing, and one year the Hurcs made " wind noises " using their horns as a lead in to " They Call the Wind Maria", maybe this year it may make a comeback.

In my mind ( literally ) , Hurricanes spawned more earworms than any other corps

Hedges Stadium is correct, but the exhibition corps is incorrect!

Try Again.

I am not using Danny's book. This is a book was published quite some time ago. I would have to take a wild guess and say the mid 70's.

I replied under the DVD Legacy.

The surprise corps that evening in exhibition was The Casper Troopers!!!

Just days before they place 11th at the VFW in Ohio.


This was the first eastern trip for the Troopers.

I was at the World Open in 1963 at Roosevelt stadium. I was in a junior group that did an exhibition there. The judges were being helped by the 1962 world champion drill team The Belles of St Mary's from Hull, Mass. We were it's affiliated drum corp the Shoreliners also from Hull Mass. We shared a motel with The Boston Crusaders. The Shoreliners were not even on the corp list here until I informed them and sent in a picture of myself in uniform probably in 1963. I guess it did not last long as I can find no info on line. I can still remember them announcing the winners, the New York Skyliners. They looked like old men to me at that age of around 11.
