Edmonton Strutters Drum and Bugle Corps inactive for the 2005 season


It saddens us, however, to inform you that even though all of the above wondeerful things are in place, due to unforeseen circumstances we, the board, have decided to postpone the 2005 Summer Tour until the summer of 2006. This heart wrenching decision was made due to the fact that grant applications did not come through, bingo revenues were substantially lower than previous years as well as 95% of the membership fees are still outstanding. It is expected that come 1 July 2005, when the no-smoking bylaw takes effect, the bingo revenue will drop even further, and with all of these negative financial factors in place, we would be incompetent if we allowed the tour to take place.

Bandettes inactive for the 2005 season

Bandettes Online Community -> Summer 2005 Update

After many struggles and despite all the hard work from all of the members and staff the Bandettes are heartbroken to announce that the competitive corps will be inactive for the summer 2005 season.

The Bandettes Feeder Corps will remain active along with a parade corps. The Parade Corps will perform in several parades throughout the summer on weekends. The parade fees will help to maintain the bills. Also, we have formed a partnership with Marion Glory Cadets, who have also been struggling recently. Many of the older members will be performing with them this summer season. We are going to continue our fundraising efforts and recruiting throughout the summer. Bandettes are currently pursuing the possibility of a winter program that could help to maintain and build our membership as well as our finances for the future success of the organization.

We are looking for anyone interested in working with our brass and color guard sections this summer on parade weekends with the possibility of them continuing in the winter program as well. We are currently accepting members in all sections for membership in the parade corps as well as the feeder corps.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at or post a message in our forums.

Love in Corps,
Shara Barlow, Bandettes Staff
