Bridgemen set open house for September 24

The Bridgemen recently announced the date for their open house to prepare for the 2006 season. It will take place on September 24 7:00 PM at the Senior Center in Bayonne, NJ.

“We are excited to get the 2006 season under way,” said Director George Lavelle. “We have taken on a great challenge and look forward to seeing the Bridgemen return to the field.”

The organization plans a full schedule for 2006, including numerous shows across the East Coast, beginning with their own ‘Tournament of Stars’ invitational on June 10, 2006.

The 2006 Bridgemen have a truly impressive staff, including their award-winning brass and percussion arrangers, Larry Kerchner and Dennis DeLucia. The corps has also welcomed back guard caption head Matt Hurley.

The 2006 plans include a full field show with all the things you have come to expect from this very unique organization. It is the goal of the corps to field 200 members.

Coming off their successful debut in 2005, the Bridgemen were 140 strong in their first       performance in 17 years. The corps has already acquired most of the equipment it will need for next year and is now actively recruiting.
