So, someone just posted this over at Drum Corps Planet: http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=133226. I thought you guys would get a kick out of it, since it’s particularly relevant to the “amp issue” of the last few years. Also, if you guys happen to know what year this is from, it’d be cool to know. Based on the info in the ad, I’m guessing around ’89-’90.
*Edit* A lot of you probably already know this info, but for those that don’t, here’s an update courtesy of Tom Shea:
“That ad is for 1989. The set player in question is Mr. Brian Irons, from 1988, the Chicago show. We became the Quad City Knights for the 88 season, after we had moved out of Geneseo after 1987.
We also had a souvenir ad in DCW I think that said something like “Just because you’re a weenie doesn’t mean you have to dress like one.” ‘Weenie’ was a big word in our camp for a few years.”
