The 2000 Season was one of great surprises and tremendous growth for the corps once again. Performing its repertoire of reworked Georges Bizet Opera, “Re-inCARMEN-ation” earned the corps not only its second appearance in the DCI Division II Finals, but a DCI Open Class Quarterfinalist spot as well. The Championship week festivities, held in College Park, MD, provided a incredible backdrop for the corps first ever tour video, and saw the Surf’s colorguard earn top honors during the final week of competition. Earlier in the season, the corps was crowned DCI Atlantic Division Champions at a memorable “coming out party” at the University of Pennsylvania’s fabled Franklin FieldS1?4 the site of the corps debut some ten years earlier. The corps repeated as finalists at the Garden State Open and North American Open contests as well.
