After having greater than expected attendance at camp in December, the Racine Scouts managed to once again exceed their expectations in January.

Fielding just over 30 members in 2002, they started the 2003 season with 35 in attendance at their December camp and 40 attending camp in January. When members who were excused for school or other commitments are added in, it brings the corps’ roster to 50. The strongest growth was in the color guard, which grew from three to 11 members, more than tripling the size of last season’s guard.

The brass and percussion sections combined at the end of the weekend to show the color guard, parents and other spectators what they could do with a challenging Chris Thompson arrangement of the James Bond Theme opener. Having had a good taste of what is in store for them this summer, members went home at the end of the weekend ready for the next installment of the show.

New members are still being accepted for the 2003 season. Anyone between the ages of 14 and 21 is encouraged to apply. For more information, call (262) 989-7876, visit www.racinescouts.org or e-mail info@racinescouts.org.
