This national champion USTA musical corps apparently became a winter guard.
"In 1974, the older 'A' Corps earned a full DCI membership by their 9th place finish at the DCI Championships in Ithaca, New York. That year the Twirling Corps continued to grow and attended their first U.S. Twirling Association (USTA) National Championships in San Francisco. The Twirlers were 40 members strong at the time and were accompanied at this competition by the 'B' Bugle Corps.
"The Twirling Corps continued to grow after their first trip to the National Championship in 1974. They won their first National Championship in 1977 and went on to win six National Corps titles and twelve National Team titles, the most recent one in 1997. The 'Twirlers' were gold medalists at the U.S. Trials in '82, '83, '84 and '86. They went on to compete in the World Championships in those years, and in 1983 and 1984 won two back-to-back World titles."
Highly inaccurate, but mentions Clem DeRosa.
