The Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps is celebrating their 53rd year!  To kick off their 2011 tour, the Troopers will have a day full of community events. 

It begins in the morning of June 4th at Fort Caspar with a community breakfast cooked in the new " food truck".  The public is invited to come out and enjoy a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and sausage, juice, and coffee from 8am to 10 am. A donation of $5 per person will help offset the cost of food.  Stay and watch the Troopers rehearse.

Then, at high noon in downtown Casper, a stand-still performance by the Troopers horn line will take place on 2nd St right in front of Lou Taubert Ranch Outfitters.
Finally, the annual fund raising event, A Night With the Troopers will take place in the evening on the grounds of Fort Caspar. Gates open at 4:00 pm with dinner served at 5:30 pm.The evening’s events will include the inaugural Hall of Fame induction of Jim & Grace Jones, Tony Monterastelli,  John Masterson, Ruth Anne Atnip, and Ted & Traute Gilbert.  The evening culminates with the Troopers playing their 2011 program as a stand-still performance.

Tickets for The Night With the Troopers are $35 each or you may purchase a Corporate Table for $1,000. Please call (307) 267-2421 for tickets or tables. Development Director Jamie Purcell joined us this morning to visit about the Troopers.
