Ottawa, OH United States
In the beginning the corps took boys with little or no training and completely taught them. The corps first year was spent as a parade unit. In 1976 they began competing in class A. In 1978 they added girls to the corps.
The corps traveled and competed primarily in Ohio, Michigan, and Ontario. In 1979 the corps made class A finals at the U.S. Open, the highest achievement of the corps at the time. In 1980, the corps traveled to New York state to complete in Drum Corps East. In 1981 the corps made its only appearance at DCI finals week placing 12 in class A.
In the spring of 1982, due to lack of community support and financial considerations, the director and staff made the difficult decision not to continue the corps.
