The Midshipmen Drum and Bugle Corps, representing the Petoskey,MI area as Official "Ambassadors of Good-Will"
was organized in 1973. During the Bicentennial Year, the Midshipmen traveled throughout Michigan,Wisconsin, and Ohio in their 4th season of contests, festivals,and parades.

With an increasing membership each year the corps will field 100 members in 1978, ranging in age from 12-21 years. To compliment the horn line,percussion and banner sections the corps added a precision rifle squad in 1977. During the coming season the Midshipmen will host the "Fourth Annual Pageant of Drums" competition, which will include corps from Michigan,Ohio, Wisconsin,and Canada.

Originally organized by Carl O. Weaver Post 194 of the American Legion,the Midshipmen receive support and encouragement from the entire greater Petoskey area. During the 1975 season,the Midshipmen were selected to participate in the opening ceremonies at the International Special Olympics at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant,MI, appearing on nationwide television on that occasion. In 1976 the Midshipmen were one of the three Michigan Corps to compete in the U.S. Open in Marion,Ohio. The Corps is a member of the Great Lakes Drum Corps Association.
