The winter of 2000 saw the establishment of our highly successful Honor Band initiative with the 1st Annual York County Middle School Honor Band (which continues today). Also, the winter Crown Guard was established in Dayton, OH by Crown guard designer Michael Shapiro (the group was a 3-time Independent World Class Finalist before disbanding after the 2002 season). The corps left on tour in 2000 with two new additions to its caravan, a 15-passenger van purchased to pull the souvenir trailer and haul volunteers and a 22-foot motorhome loaned to the corps by support staff Ben and Teri Brinson as the corps’ traveling administrative offices.
The show this year featured music from the recent film The Mask of Zorro, and featured sultry black costumes worn by the color guard that enhanced the mood. The season was very successful competitively with the corps finishing in 11th Place, and the amazing Carolina Crown percussionists turning in a seventh place finish on Finals night.
