Whatís it about?
part of their commitment to maintaining and developing the UK Drum
Corps activity the Board of Trustees has decided to put together a
Task Force in order to examine all aspects of the activity.
last Task Force was held in 1995 and was responsible for giving
guidelines to the management of DCUK for the ongoing development of
the organisation and the drum corps activity.
It was as a result of this review that both the Cadet and
Junior Classes were launched.
Board of Trustees are in agreement that it is now time to hold
another review of our activity to enable those responsible for the
guidance of the activity in the UK to be given up-to-date summaries
of the current state of the activity and the needs and wishes of the
membership of DCUK for future developments.
will it happen?
Task Force is to be held over a weekend, from Friday evening to
Sunday lunchtime, in either late October or early November and once
the venue is booked and confirmed in the next week or so then a
definite date will be announced.
This timing has been chosen in order to ensure that it does
not interfere with the competitive seasons and also to allow
sufficient time for a draft report to be presented to the DCUK
Annual General Meeting on Sunday 4th December 2005.
