The fact that Kadoudal Drum & Bugle Corps from Quiberon will not participate in the competition this year does not mean that the corps is not active. They are working hard in France to make a comeback in 2016.

Last week from Sunday until Wednesday, the members of Kadoudal have been working hard on the new programme. In Nantes, under the leadership of the American colour guard instructor Elana Siegel (Santa Clara Vanguard and Colts), among others, they were rehearsing the show 'Samourai'.

Kadoudal made its debut in 2010 in the DCE Junior Class and achieved excellent results. In 2012, the junior corps from Quiberon was the first non-Dutch participant to get second place in the Junior Class. They are using this year to regain their strength and lay a foundation for the new show.

“The competition remains our main objective,” said corps director Yvan Boscher earlier. “But we must also think about the education of our members and the future of the corps. We'll be back!”
