More on UMass Super DMA!

This was my first year at the UMass Super DMA – and I have to say that it was amazing! As always I had a wonderful time working with the Drum Majors, but it was also great to work closely with the Colorguard and the Major Bandos!!! All of the students were excited and intense, and the staff and IMPACTs had a great time with all of you!

So as promised…here are the march off winners!!!
