Quincy Drum and Bugle Corps and others

Post by cavies79 » Tue Aug 07, 2007 5:17 pm

I am trying to remember the name of a drum and bugle corps that used to be in Quincy, Illinois. I used to see them, as a child, marching in the Nauvoo Wine and Grape Festival parade.

Also, does anybody have pictures of this corps and the Knee His All Girl Drum and Bugle Corps? These corps were some of the first, along with the Kewanee Black Knights, that I remember ever seeing.

Thanks,

It was probably either the Flying Dutchmen or the Quincy Trojans.

Brian,

Thanks! It was the Flying Dutchmen. I remember seeing them as a kid. That was probably in the late 60s or early 70s.

Thanks again.

I figured it must have been the Flying Dutchmen, Dennis. I figured you were too young to have seen the Quincy Trojans.

The Dutchmen were active in the 60s, and were last on the field in the '79 season.

There is a photo of the Dutchmen in the new DCI The First 35 Years book that Steve Vickers put together. Since the Dutchmen competed at the DCI Championship they are in it.

IF it was in the 60's it was the Trojans. I marched in that corps for 4 years.
