Some days ago the Kidsgrove Scouts have made an important announcement: three members of the Blue Devils A (Concord, CA) will fly from the USA to Kidsgrove in order to help the Scouts during the Finals week, on the road to the DCE European Championship (Kerkrade, September 24th).

Some days ago the Kidsgrove Scouts have made an important announcement: three members of the Blue Devils A (Concord, CA) will fly from the USA to Kidsgrove in order to help the Scouts during the Finals week, on the road to the DCE European Championship (Kerkrade, September 24th). Here below the entire statement.

Kidsgrove Scouts are extremely excited to welcome Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps staff for the culmination of the 2016 season. John Meehan (Brass Caption Head & Arranger), Brian Dinkel (Front Ensemble Technician) and Brandon Wickham (Visual Technician) will travel to Europe to meet up and work with the corps through to the Drum Corps Europe (official) Championships.

This is another development through the wonderful partnership created with System Blue. Kidsgrove members and staff are so excited to have such wonderful, talented educators coming to work with us. Also we would like to thank Al Murray and the great team at System Blue, they have been there for us throughout the summer and continue to amaze us all with their work and support.

Corps Director, Rob Swindells, commented. “John has been in contact with us from the very start of the System Blue deal. As soon as we talked about the possibility of having himself and other BD staff over to help us we were both keen to make it work. We are so grateful and massively excited to embrace this opportunity. Massive thanks to the three of them.”
