sam recordsWear Our History, Share Our History

In 2023 the MSAA will continue our yearly tradition of returning a vintage Madison Scouts shirt for sale. Each purchase of a classic shirt buys one shirt for you and one shirt that will be gifted to a current member of the Madison Scouts! The corps members love having a connection to the alumni association, and we love finally being able to replace the version of the shirt in our wardrobe with one that fits and doesn't have holes in it!

This year we let you vote to choose the design to bring back, and we're happy to say that the top choice design was the "Screamin' Skeleton" from the 1997 show, "The Pirates of Lake Mendota." The artwork was wonderfully recreated by alum Aaron Asnicar, and is now available for presale!

WMSAA Shirt 2023e want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who participated in the voting process for our 2023 MSAA T-shirt design. Your opinions and feedback were invaluable, and we appreciate the time and effort you took to help us choose the best design.

We are thrilled to announce that we have a top vote-getting decision. 

Thank you again for being a part of this process. We couldn't have done it without your support. Be on the lookout for pre-order information. We look forward to seeing you all wearing our new T-shirts this summer!

Hall of Fame Logo

The Madison Scouts, Forward Performing Arts, and the Madison Scouts Alumni Association will announce the second class of inductees into the Madison Scouts Hall of Fame at Drums on Parade July 1st. This year's class follows the 2022 inaugural class that included C. H. Beebe, William Howard, and Scott Stewart. The Madison Scouts Hall of Fame honors individuals who have participated and achieved at the highest level in the Madison Scouts organization throughout its long and storied history.

We hope you can be with us on July 1st, where we will be back in Middleton to honor the second class inducted into the Madison Scouts Hall of Fame.

As most of you know, the drum & bugle corps activity has a rich heritage in Wisconsin, with marching units scattered throughout the State. With thousands of young adults in the activity, dating and serious relationships among drum corps alumni are not uncommon – in many cases leading to marriage. This was the case for Madison residents John Weekes and Cristin McKenna, who were marching members from two different drum and bugle corps. They married in 2006 and are now proud parents of sons Michael and Matthew Weekes. John and Cristin’s union was typical in many ways. However, they shared an especially unique bond – each had tragically lost a close family member to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
