 The Skyliners Drum & Bugle Corps is scheduled to compete at the local Drum Corps Associates show in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Saturday, August 16th.    
The Skyliners are based in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area and rehearse at Wyoming Valley West High School in Plymouth, Pennsylvania.  Therefore, the DCA show being held at Scranton High School Stadium, 63 Mike Munchak Drive in Scranton, is very much our "home show."  
Further, the Skyliners Drum & Bugle Corps are proud to welcome Joey Pero, Buglers Hall of Fame Member and Trumpet Player Extraordinaire, to spend the upcoming Scranton, Pennsylvania weekend with them (August 16 - 17, 2014). 
We invite local band members, directors and staff members to come on out and see what has been happening in the Valley, and enjoy our 2014 show - "A New Dawn, a New Day".  
We also look forward to seeing many New York Skyliner Alumni at this show.  
New York Skyliner Alumni continue to attend shows and march in the American Section to support the field corps, and the Skyliners have been warmly welcomed back by other DCA corps and administration as well. 
As the Skyliners' first season back in competition comes to the mid-season, their return has been a great success in many ways.   After their Bridgeport, Connecticut DCA performance, the Skyliners also competed at the July 19th Secaucus, New Jersey, July 26th Downingtown, Pennsylvania, and the August 9th Lawrenceville Township, New Jersey shows.  In addition to an entertaining performance which begins in traditional fashion on the starting line in a company front, and includes some traditional Skyliner moves and melodies, scores are improving as we expect they would. 
The Skyliners are honored to be sponsored by the Michael Steiner American Legion Post #411 in Jessup, Pennsylvaniaand the Garbarina-Mazarakos American Legion 
Post #1523 of New York City.
Plans for the 2015 DCA season are already underway as the Skyliners will continue building this legendary drum and bugle corps into the future!  A 2015 Open House announcement should not be too far behind!
