Troopers Return in 2021
Updated: Sep 6, 2023
Since the start of the Pandemic, we have taken every step possible to protect our organization and help stop the spread of COVID-19. That included the unprecedented cancellation of our 2020 season, and the temporary closure of our bingo hall in Casper.
Over summer, we launched new online avenues to engage with our fans including the debut of the Troopers Vault, which gave access to over 30 hours of Troopers historical content. We also transitioned our educational model to virtual learning, and continued to work with our contracted members. In September, we opened up a new way to audition for the corps in an all virtual environment. Now, those that are interested in joining will have a streamlined way to train, interact, and audition without ever having to leave home. Over the last month, we added nearly 100 training videos to the Troopers Vault, offered masterclasses, and one on one lessons for those seeking an opportunity to become a Trooper.
With the news of a COVID-19 vaccine on the way, we are thrilled to look toward the future with growing optimism. While we are not back to normal yet, and have much left to overcome, we are very excited to announce that the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps will return to the field in the summer of 2021. While details on the season are still in the works, we are preparing an incredible experience that meets all safety guidelines needed to protect our members, staff, and volunteers.
While this season will undoubtedly be different than what we might normally see, this is an exciting step toward restoring the drum corps activity.
