Dear Kiltie Fans and Friends! 
Chris Ferrara here

Hello my Kiltie brothers and sisters. The Kiltie Board of Directors have granted me permission to form:

The Mad Plaid “Concert Bugle corps.”

This will be a group of about 12 to 18 horn players, one set drummer and no color guard at this time. This group will parade on a flatbed truck and do standstill concerts. The music will be old kiltie music but NOT limited to it. Music stands will always be used so there is no memorization. We will rehearse twice a month and have only five or six performances a year. Rehearsals will be in Mount Pleasant WI. Village Hall.

SUMMARY - of Concert Bugle Corps:

• 12 to 18 horn players
• One set drummer
• No color Guard (at this time)
• No music memorization
• No marching - play sitting on a flatbed truck
• Relaxed uniform
• Relaxed performances
• Rehearse twice a month
• 5 or 6 gigs a year.

Come and join us and reunite with friends at our first rehearsal . . . play or watch

See you there or email me
