Support the Pioneer Drum & Bugle Corps get "Down the Road"

Pioneer needs your generous support to help offset the costs of getting the corps “Down the Road” on the 2017 DCI Tour

As you can imagine, the cost of providing meals and transportation for a corps of 150 members, plus staff and volunteers, is a considerable expense. While membership dues cover a portion of this expense, the remainder is offset through generous contributions from people like you. Through your support, we can continue providing our members with a World Class experience as they travel "Down the Road" to the 2017 Drum Corps International World Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.

Our “Down the Road” program provides you with several different options to support the corps. These options, which are outlined below, are based on actual costs the corps anticipates facing during the upcoming season.

Sponsor a Meal

On most days, the Corps provides the members with 3 meals and a snack.
Costs for each of these are:

Meal $/Member Plates/Utinsils $/Meal
Breakfast $2.50 $52.00 $427.00
Lunch $3.25 $52.00 $539.50
Dinner $3.75 $52.00 $614.50
Snack $1.20 $52.00 $232.00
