General Meeting on Tuesday, May 2nd.

sam recordsWe'll host our first General Meeting of the year on Tuesday, May 2nd, at 7:00 PM CT. These open meetings give you an overall picture of what the Madison Scouts Alumni Association is up to. Attendance is open to everybody. At this meeting, we'll talk about...

  • Our plans for the 2023 DCI season
  • Exciting events such as the Drums on Parade Tailgate and the Indy Finals Meetup
  • Upcoming fundraisers, such as raffles and the yearly vintage shirt fundraiser
  • MSAA merchandise is coming soon
  • The Madison Scouts Hall of Fame

davidGreetings Madison Scouts Alumni,

I hope you are all well as we exit Winter -- (though it certainly feels like mid-Winter here in Wisconsin!). I'm writing to share a few updates on the state of the Madison Scouts.

- Susan L. Smith, Assistant Professor of Music Education at Troy University, has been a fantastic addition to our staff as Brass Caption Supervisor. Her role is essentially to be a 'teacher of teachers and coach for our brass staff and has been nothing less than superior. We are proud to have her on our staff as a guide for our teachers and a role model/expert educator for the membership.

- The color guard is in phenomenal shape, and I continue to be proud of the work PJ Tankard, Caption Head, does with this group of performers. 33/36 performers have already been contracted and have been for months (with plenty of callbacks in the pipeline to fill the guard). Most corps do not contract their color guards until April due to WGI, but we aggressively selected members early so we could focus on teaching them throughout the offseason.

sam recordsHelp us out in 2023!

Are you interested in helping the MSAA? We are currently looking for volunteers for all of our committees. Volunteering through these groups allows you to meet other Scouts alumni from all eras, give back to the organization, and play an active role in shaping the MSAA.

Do you want to help run our social media? Are you a fundraising expert? Maybe you can help design this year's vintage t-shirt! Or maybe you want to help organize our history at the warehouse.

Whatever your specialty, we'd love to have you. We can't do this alone!

Please fill out this volunteer form, and we'll reply soon.

The Madison Scouts Alumni Association (MSAA) is seeking volunteers to help document the 2000-2021 seasons of the Madison Scouts! This is vital to ensure that the members of the future and alumni can look back on the storied history of the corps and be more connected to "the giants whose shoulders they stand on." A written history of the corps currently exists that covers from the early years of the corps through the end of the Millenium, but a written history for the past two decades doesn't yet exist. We are searching for volunteers to research and write the first draft copy for this project.
