Sky Ryders Alumni in San Antonio, Texas

Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas

A modest-sized group of Sky Ryders alumni have attended the DCI Southwestern Championship in San Antonio over the past several years, and we’ve had a really great time! We’re hoping to get a really big group together this year for a nice Texas-style reunion. The corps perform on Saturday, July 22, 2017, but there’s usually a fair amount of people around for dinner and/or drinks along the Riverwalk on Friday evening. After a full day of drum corps, we meet at the historic Mi Tierra Café until well after midnight.

Important Update for 2017: The Alamodome will have a clear bag policy in effect for this event, restricting the size and style of bags that will be permitted within the venue. Here’s some additional information on this new policy.

Keep an eye on the Sky Ryders Alumni Facebook page for details about hotel discounts as well as details for the get togethers along the Riverwalk on Friday and Saturday.
