The Dips took on members, especially from the defunct Royal Marquis, and began competiton in 1978, rising through the ranks to become of the top Class A-II DCI corps in the country by 1983, when they finished second to Les Chatelaines. The corps finished third in DCI Class A competition in 1984 and 1985, before moving to Open Class competition in 1986 with a 17th-place finish in Prelims.

The Dips were active through at least 1988.
