Drum and Bugle Corps

Recommended Posts

I am starting a Drum and Bugle Corps in our Troop. (I am a scout, not a leader.) Any suggestions?

It is so cool that you want to start up something like this! You may need some help to get going. Is there any adult in the troop that has a military background? He may be able to show you how to arrange a formation, or how to march. Or call the leader of your local VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) chapter. The band or orchestra leader at your local high school can offer advice as to music that works, and how to locate instruments. If these people cannot personally help, they may be able to tell you the name of someone else that can help. Call the leader of your chartered organization. Your scoutmaster may have some contacts too. Call the merit badge counselor for music or bugling.

 

You could also make a short speech to the Roundtable in your district. There are many adult scout leaders there, some of whom may be eager to help you. Ask your scoutmaster when you could make a presentation at the Roundtable.

 

The point is, unless you are an expert at this, you will need to draw upon the knowledge and experience of others. Tell them you are a Boy Scout and need their advice. You will find there are many that will help you get started.

 

Good luck, and let us know how things go!
