Not since the 1930's have three California Senior corps squared off in championship competition. July 19th and 20th saw the West Coast Senior corps going at it for the title of Best in the West. When the dust settled, the Renegades had pulled off their fourth West Coast Championship, winning the Western Cup. River City Regiment took the silver and SoCal Dream the bronze in what everyone agreed was a weekend to remember.

"Renegades...they truly have what I like about drum corps: face shattering sound."

While the corps was practicing in 110 degree weather, guard staffers Kathy Pearson and Julie Liedtke discovered a cache of cheerleader uniforms, which they could not pass up. Their performance kept us laughing all day.
