KARE 11 (includes a KARE11 EXTRA of the 2004 Season from start to finish)
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
It is hard from me to even imagine what happened in Rochester NY tonight. A drum corps I have been affiliated with for over 30 years has just broke all records and all barriers in their history. Tonight, Minnesota Brass, Incorporated placed SECOND at World Championship finals. I am so proud of my folks; I wish I could have been there.

UPDATE: Tom Peashy DCA Public Relations:
with this computer age, I had the scores way early... and intentionally stuck them under my clipboard as there was a large crowd in the area... (Fran appreciates that)... finally after some time... I peaked... the shock on my face must have been obvious as several around me said "is it THAT bad"... naturally I just smiled...
Buccaneers pulled off their 4-peat tonight and are a GREAT champion but in many ways, the night belonged to Minnesota... congrats to all...
This was by far the best dca finals EVER...
