DCI World Champions

The '80s started like the '70s ended, Blue Devils and Santa Clara Vanguard battling back and forth. In 1983, saw a new power house emerge...Garfield Cadets, who achieved the first three-peat; however, like the '70s, there were four different Champions.

 

Every summer, the top corps in the country gather in one place to vie for the title of DCI World Champions. From DCIs Hall of Fame, I'm  pleased to salute the latest winner and honor all those who have come before.

 

To be listed here is no small achievement. The following corps names reflect the efforts of many individuals. Who have worked hard. Struggled long, and achieved much during the 1980s.
