Just as faithful as the swallows that return to return to San Juan Capistrano each spring, are the drum and bugle corps that return to their championship each summer. And as they pour into the area from all over the country, many groups will be taking a break in Schuylkill County before the DCI Eastern Classic in Allentown. In return for the hospitality offered by several of our local schools, we have the opportunity to enjoy the talents of these groups from California, Wyoming, Georgia and Iowa -- free! Stop by the Pottsville Area practice field either today or Saturday. Practices will be from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
