Support Steve Vickers for DCI Hall of Fame Petition sign now

Dr. David Kampschroer
DCI Hall of Fame Chairman

Dear Dr. Kampschroer,

We, the fans, supporters and veterans of drum corps who sign this petition, would like to use this document to voice our support for Steve Vickers's nomination to the DCI Hall of Fame.

Steve has served drum corps for over four decades. He began his career as a rookie member of the 1961 Hutchinson (KS) Jets, and went on to finish his marching with the Sky Ryders.

Steve continued his association with drum corps by becoming a part-time journalist for Drum Corps Digest, and soon after, becoming Don Whitelys source for drum corps in the Great Plains.

In 1973, he became the editor of Drum Corps World DCIs publicity and information outlet, and in 1974, Steve purchased the paper and turned it into the vehicle that most now know him for, an independent voice for news and information about the past, present and future of drum corps and DCI.

After moving to Madison, Wisconsin, Steve began a long relationship with both the Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps and the Madison Drum and Bugle Corps Association serving as board member, consultant and eventually Chairman for the organizations.

In 1999, Steve drove the inception of the 21st Century Drum and Bugle Corps Foundation, an organization that has assisted numerous startup drum corps by loaning equipment and expertise.

In 2001, Steve compiled and published the first volume of his Drum Corps History books. Proceeds from the sale of these books benefits the 21st Century Drum Corps Foundation and the information, photos and stories gathered and published in the two existing volumes has been invaluable in preserving the history of the activity.

Steve has served DCI directly in a number of capacities, from publishing championship programs (as well as DCI Today), coordinating the Madison championships in 1992, 1999 and 2002, creating the drum corps museum in 1985 and overseeing the alumni commemorations at the 20th and 25th DCI Finals in 1992 and 1997.

Steve's tireless efforts have kept the drum corps community together for several decades. He has kept supporters, members, staff and veterans informed not only about what other corps are doing, but how their own efforts have helped respect, continue and define our great activity. Enshrinement in the DCI Hall of Fame is a most appropriate accolade for someone who has spent so much of his life in tireless support of drum corps and Drum Corps International.
