Previewing MidCal Champions Showcase – Clovis, Ca

Two nights in a row of drum corps come to the field this evening. Unfortunately, if you’re not able to make it to Clovis, Ca, then you will be missing out on what six more corps have to offer. Don’t go panicking or having withdrawals just yet because FloMarching will be broadcasting from Stanford, Ca. and Akron, Oh. just a day from now.
