|History for Lakeshoremen
The LakeShoremen all-age Drum & Bugle Corps started as an extension of the Maverix Drumline. The Maverix (1994-2001) competed in the winter indoor drumline venue of the Michigan Color Guard Circuit and it marched in community parades and civic events. The Maverix Drumline took pride in emphasizing rudimental drumming as an essential element of its charter. In 2002, the LakeShoremen started as an extension of the Maverix Drumline and included an all-age Rudimental Drumline that added a guard and a horn line as financial resources became available. The corps "no-debt" policy helped maintain spending discipline and patience within the corps leadership to grow and solidify organizational operations as resources enabled. The years 2003 and 2004 were quick building years with LakeShoremen membership growing to over 30 members. The corps participated in its first field exhibition performance at the 2005 DCM DeKalb event and then in its first field competition at the 2005 DCA Prelims Class A. At the 2005 DCA Prelims the corps finished a respectable 7th out of 10 Class A competing corps in its very first field competition. The corps was proud to be the first corps from Michigan to compete in the DCA circuit with very positive media reviews as a result of the effort and performance. |
