Thoughtful comments from tenor drummer Gord LeFevre on the March 27 - 28, 2004, mini camp weekend

Fellow Alumni,

Something wonderful happened at the Legion on the weekend of March 27th and 28th. An itinerant, geographically-dispersed group of horn players, cymbalists and drummers morphed into a Drum Corps. We have been on the brink of doing this for the last couple of months now but I think it took the mini camp to provide the focus and format necessary to move us from practitioners to performers.

Some personal thoughts about the mini camp that I would like to share with you:

Best regards, Gord
