Ambassadors Drum and Bugle Corps - Site Changes
Friday, August 27, 2004
My scanner is working again! To celebrate I have scanned a newspaper photo of the 1982 snare line published in the Newmarket Era and added it to the 1982 scrapbook.
Can you spot the celebrities?

I have added a new category for additional information about the Ambassadors in the links page. I have redone the links page in tables as well. I may revisit the background graphic in the future as it makes things hard to read but it stays for now.

The 1980 Scrapbook has been updated with some information about the 1980 US tour to Chicago and Franklin Park Park. I found this information in some programs from the US shows and from the Banner article already posted in the '80 scrapbook. Unfortunately we were all too busy to record scores for the three(?) shows we did on tour. I do remember we tended to be dead last in placement so perhaps we didn't care about scores so much.
At one of these shows the Ambassadors became acquainted with the term "unit tick", which under the old tick judging system was a means of taking off a whole point at one stroke rather than a tenth of a point that a "tick" usually reperesented. A unit tick was not generally a sign of a strong performance to put it mildly.

The Corps Links page has been redesigned to display the drum corps links I have recorded on my Furl account. This should let me automate weeding out dead lnks and adding new ones.

I have added to the scores for DCI Canada in the 1980 scrapbook. There is more to come as I plan to add information about the shows we did on the Chicago tour that year. Unfortunately I have no scores for those shows.
