After a decade of use, the current equipment trailer is too small for the corps. "We've simply outgrown it," explains Executive Director Stuart Pompel.
In 2000, we purchased a 20-year-old 45-foot trailer. The trailer was originally designed to hold five mallet instruments, timpani, 60 brass instruments, a set of drums, and color guard equipment.
Ten seasons later, after significant growth, and a half dozen remodels, we've simply outgrown this trailer. We now own nine mallet instruments and 80 brass, and we have to fit more sound equipment, field paint, drum heads, etc. Storage is tight, and many items have no specific spot. The result is that our instruments are getting damaged during transport.
The Campaign to Purchase a Larger Trailer
A 53-foot trailer would meet our needs. The cost of the purchase and build-out is $25,000. The equipment trailer transports our instruments; it's our storage unit; and it's a public representation of the corps.
More than $5,000 has already been committed toward this project! Now we're going to our fans, donors, and alumni for help to complete our goal.
When you make a gift to this campaign, you'll see the tangible results, and you'll impact hundreds of members over the next decade!
