San Francisco Renegades Present…

2009 DCA Championships Huge Success

Renegades have just returned from DCA Championships in Rochester, NY. It was an amazing weekend with perfect weather, a appreciative crowd and — most important of all — a GREAT pair of performances (especially Finals).

The corps finished with an impressive 90.463, putting the corps in a solid 6th place — one of our highest placings ever.

Big thanks to the city of Rochester, Drum Corps Associates, and our fellow all-age corps for welcoming Renegades into your family. Fun times. We’ll be back next summer…. twice!

See you on the 50,

- Greg

PS: The 2010 Renegades season starts December 5th. More info coming soon…

Congratulations to all of our corps members on a great opening weekend!

Season Debut this Monday – 4 p.m. – Newark, CA

In order to get a semi-performance in before the June 21st season opening show in Concord, we would love to cordially invite our Friends, Friends and Alumni to attend our camp run through this Monday afternoon, May 26, at 4 p.m.

If you have marched with us before, you know how important it is to have those pre-season “performances” that imitate our “show day performance schedule,” and help to shake those pesky pre-show jitters. Besides, it’s always more of an adrenaline rush to have someone out there in the audience cheering the corps on – or, as Dugada would say, “make someone in the audience (his) b*tch”!!! :) Plus – the corps is doing great this year!! Very exciting stuff is happening!!

Monday’s Run through/Performance Information:

Newark Junior HS
6201 Lafayette Ave,
Newark, CA 94560

See you in the bleachers!!!
