Clouds and Passing Showers to not Dampen Event

Weather forecasts are for mostly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and storms throughout the day, however in YEA! tradition the show will go on!  Start time is 7:30 p.m. Stay tuned to the YEA! website and Cadets Facebook pages for any late breaking developments regarding the weather, but the concessions are stocked, the stadium is locked: We’re going to have a drum corps show!
 
Tickets will be available at the box office at West Chester beginning at 4 p.m. There are still a few good seats remaining in the Reserved ($28) and Value Reserved ($18) sections, but you will want to be to the stadium early to get the best remaining seats!
 
As for the corps, The Cadets have had two solid days of rehearsal in Pennsylvania while Carolina Crown, Santa Clara Vanguard, The Cavaliers and Jersey Surf all competed in Salem, Va. last night.  The Crossmen competed in Ohio and as of this morning all corps are arriving at their housing sites in and around the Philadelphia area. Check the complete Aug. 1–6 housing locations for all of the weekend’s events.
 
So if you’ve been craving drum corps action, it’s all systems "go" for a little Christmas, saluting the ‘Common Good,’ The Planets, The Firebird, ’15 Minutes of Fame,’ the long-awaited return of the Crossmen and the fun-loving tribute to the Bridgemen.
 
Where else would you rather spend a Wednesday evening but then enjoying drum corps with a few thousand of your closest friends?
 
See you at the show!
