Madison Scouts Alumni,

The corps is in great shape, as the production is on the field, choreographic layers are being added, and deep cleaning has ensued. The membership and staff have been working hard, and are eager to get the show on the road. We'll depart on June 25 for East Troy, Wisconsin, where we'll be parked until a short trip to Cedarburg for our annual Fourth of July celebration hosted by the Olsen family and Piggly Wiggly. Here are the upcoming rehearsal locations --

David LofyDavid LofyI'm writing to you from the beautiful University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire campus, where the corps is wrapping up Spring Training. The corps will perform their preview show tonight (June 24) for the Eau Claire community, alumni, and families.

lemonsqueezemsaashirt 1024x10242xThe iconic Lemon Squeeze shirt first came out for the 1990 Madison Scouts show, "Undiscovered Madison," when the corps played "The Lemon Squeeze" by Mark Kirk. The swing tune was the corps' opener, starting laid-back and casual but quickly escalating into a frenzy of notes and fast drill that brought the classic Madison energy. Take a look here! The Lemon Squeeze shirt has since gained a cult following among Madison Scouts alumni, fans, and instructors...

And we're bringing it back!

We're excited to help fans of the classic Madison shirt retire their well-worn version in favor of a less threadbare one that has fewer holes. This limited time sale will only last for the 2024 Drum Corps season, so don't miss your chance. Order yours today!

The 2024 Class of the Madison Scouts Hall of Fame will be recognized and toasted during ceremonies at the 2024 Madison Scouts Hall of Fame Drums on Parade Tailgate hosted by MSAA. Kent Eversmeyer, MSAA Hall of Fame Committee Chairman says, "It is fitting to honor our inductees and their servant leadership to the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps by having 100% of the proceeds from the MSAA-hosted Tailgate go to the C.H. Beebe Scholarship fund that directly supports life changing opportunities and experiences to the current members of our beloved drum corps".

Be part of something bigger than all of us by enjoying great food, beverages and friendships at the Tailgate with a special "in-your-face" performance by the 2024 Madison Scouts, followed by singing "Never Walk" and then a "Meet and Greet" with the 2024 Madison Scouts, where alumni will have the opportunity to sign a Member's Aussie with your name, section and years marched in the corps. It's an incredible way to connect with the current corps and "Toast" our Madison Scouts Hall of Fame inductees.

Yes! The Madison Scouts are wearing Aussies in 2024!!
