Through the generosity of the Madison Scouts organization, Pioneer recently received a new food trailer. We are grateful to the Madison Scouts for this generous contribution!
While our newly received trailer is in great condition, there is still work to be done to get it ready for the rigors of the 2014 DCI tour. The trailer needs to be DOT approved and work needs to be done on Thermal King unit to make sure that the freezer and refrigerator will work through the heat of summer. In addition, there are many small items and repairs on the trailer that the corps would like to address before heading out on the DCI Tour.
If you would like to take a sneak peek at some of the work that needs to be done - Click Here to see a photo gallery of the new trailer!

Retha Cilliers was truly a gallant lady who gave her all for the benefit of South Africa's young people. She will be missed by her friends from the Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps. May her legacy inspire others to pick up her determination and enthusiasm to move forward by providing more and more young people with the opportunity to better themselves through music and the performing arts. We here have witnessed the benefits from the hard work that Retha and her fine staff put into these young men and women, having had 44of them come to America and be part of our Pioneer Corps Family.
Retha, "God Be With You 'Till We Meet Again!"
Roman, Sue, Murray, and the entire Pioneer Staff and Membership.

With a deep sigh……I need to tell you about last weekend’s meeting of all D.C.I. Corps held in Scottsdale, Arizona. A motion was made and approved that basically allows any type of brass instrument to be used in competition from now on! Yes that means that you very well will see Sousaphones, French Horns, Trombones, Cornets, etc. used.
From the 22 Corps represented, 18 Corps voted for the additions, and 4 corps abstained or voted against the proposal (Cavaliers, Pioneer, Boston, & Troopers). It is my opinion that the drum corps activity continues to march forward at a fast pace towards becoming what I call “Super Band”……Woodwinds, etc. will come next!
Your contribution helps us become Better Every Day and serve today's youth with an experience that is unmatched!
