This is to serve as OFFICIAL PUBLIC
NOTICE; this website is in NO WAY connected to Sky
Ryders Drum & Bugle Corps.
Research- A search engine result
(Google, MSN and Yahoo) for "Sky Ryders Drum & Bugle Corps"
ended in no major presence for the drum corps (that is front
page search engine results) on January 11th, 2006 and this is the response:
Purpose- This will serve as
a growing database that is comprised of information on Sky Ryders
Drum & Bugle Corps from former alumni and fans of the corps;
the included information is in NO way to be considered official nor
accurate for legal reasons. The end result is Sky Ryders will
always have an unofficial, major and permanent presence
on the web. Hopefully, this effort will aid an official, permanent
presence, resulting in Sky Ryders marching on turf around the country
again one day.
This website is specifically designed and worded legally
as, Sky Ryders Drum & Bugle Corps- The Unofficial Site.
The intentions for the website is strictly historic, a place to share
the gathered information and for alumni to have the ability to easily
*** Sky Ryders Winter Guard has a website; email
for the web address until I have permission or not to publish and
*** Another website, the Official
Sky Ryders' Alumni email contacts is available here:
Sky Ryders Alumni.
(Sky Ryders Drum & Bugle Corps- the Unofficial Site is
to serve primarily as a database for history because of its limited
resources. The time-frame for gathering the history before it is permanently
lost is the motivation and energy in this project.)
This website will never be political and will only
serve alumni in a positive manner. NO negative comments will
be allowed on this website against any alumni (period). No negative
comments about current or former staff, members, volunteers or negative
comments about other corps members (current or former), about DCI or
any DCI judges, or any negative comments about anything drum corps related
will be tolerated. The owner of this site will edit as needed.
WHAT IS NEEDED:
(1) MEMBER, STAFF AND VOLUNTEER LISTS for the years'
competition, regardless if it is full corps or winter corps.
(2) TOUR SCHEDULES of winter guard competitions and
exhibitions throughout the years.
(3) SCORES of all competitions. The breakdowns of
scores: horns, drums, rifles, flags, marching, etc. will eventually
be published here. Anyone want to help?
(4) PICTURES of anything related to our corps (especially
for this homepage).
GRAPHICS: If anyone interested in providing
a better template to work from, please let me know. Any graphic
help is always welcome.
(5) MUSICAL SCORES of the years and information about
(6) RECORDINGS of competitions and standstills that
may be available for sale.
(7) MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION about the corps.
WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE WORLD PRESENCE. This will
be a permanent website. Sky Ryders Drum & Bugle Corps will always
have a major presence on the web again, although the corps may disband
temporarily, may be relocated or a website address change. This
website will never "just go away"; it is intended
for all our alumni and fans.
I will attribute any information given by contributors
to attest accuracy and as a positive reflection toward contributors.
Special Thanks in No
Particular Order To: Steve Vickers for his support, Scott Cameron for
