St. Johns Name/Uniform Change sign now

This petition is presented in opposition to the oganizational name and logo change as proposed on the corps' website.

We, the undersigned alumni, past staff, fans of the corps and current marching members feel such a change to the corps name and image is extremely disgraceful and a show of utter disrespect to all those who have worked so hard in the past, and in recent years, to build and rebuild the name and reputation that St. Johns commands today.

We hope that you view these ideas in the same light as we do, and as such, see that authorizing the proposed changes would be a very big mistake. We encourage you to vote decisively against the proposed changes.

    This is so NOT drum corps.....soon they'll want to take out the drums/horns and just have a dance class. Stick with whats worked all these years. It's time to stand up and keep with a tradition that runs over 50 year. Do you see Cavaliers, etc changing th

    Keep it to be St. Johns Drum and Bugle Corps plain and simple. Sure maybe it sounds corny. But a "youth ensemble"? Yes they are youth and yes they play ensemble (i.e. together as a unified group). I am sure that the authors of the "Innovative Youth Ensemb

    I too have taught St. Johns and would love to see the name carry on!

    This is stupid to change 53 years or so of tradition. Changing the name or etc. is not a good thing to announce to the public so the veterans can find out. My answer is NO. It should stay the same and run the same.

    I once marched in a small corps (now inactive) that made similar decisions. Please think hard before you make any actions like this.

    It would be such a shame to change the name of a long standing and recognizable institution as St. John's. As this name is synonomus with a group of young people who try their best to present their skills to the world, it would be rather negative to chang

    Not a terrible change, but nothing wrong with the old one. Maybe the corps could post it's reasons for the change on their website.

    I'm 63 and a member of a charted alumni. I understand how important tradition is. We all march with former members on our minds. To change St.Johns is ludicrous.
