1995 marked several key turning points in the history of the organization. New staff members were added, many of whom had world class instructional and performance experience,with several world championships between them. The corps purchased a tractor-trailer which was a symbol of growth for the organization and a tremendous source of pride for corps members. Travelling increased to include a mini-tour during the 4th of July weekend, and an 11 day tour which led to the corps’ second performance at the DCI World Championships, held in Buffalo, NY. The corps finished 8th in DCI Division II competition, with the percussion section finishing third, and brass finishing fifth.
