Members of the FFCC Board of Directors kicked off July with a collaborative meeting with the staffs of the Winter Guard Association of Southern California (WGASC), the American Drum Line Association (ADLA), and DCP Partners to discuss circuit technology upgrades, workshop new ideas, and problem solve. The FFCC’s partnership with these west coast circuits over the years has resulted in many significant steps towards improvement in service to the members of their respective teams. Our meetings focus on sharing processes and technology that each circuit adapts for their use. WGASC and its leaders have been active partners in the strategic planning efforts of the FFCC for several years. With nearly 400 colorguards in WGASC and 160 drumlines in ADLA, the partnership of these three circuits represents nearly 800 winterguard, indoor percussion, and winds teams. FFCC members will see some improvements in the web site over the summer months. Look for updates coming soon.
