A blast from the past, the CYO NATIONALS are back!
Friday, July 1, 2011 Veterans Stadium in Quincy, MA will mark the return of one of the most storied Drum Corps shows in history! The 3 time CYO Champion Boston Crusaders are proud to host this tribute show, honoring the many great organizations and fans that took part in this historical event. From 1964 through 1984, thousands of families spent that one special night attending the CYO Nationals, with both front and back stands packed! Dozens of fantastic corps from across the nation provided a memorable night of entertainment.
The Crusaders are very pleased to have the support of both Father Matt Williams, Director of the Office for the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults for the Archdiocese of Boston and Peter Williams, Archdiocesan Athletic Director of the CYO for this tribute show. Mr. Williams has been involved with CYO for 49 years and has volunteered at every CYO Nationals Competition. Although the Crusaders have the cooperation of the CYO, the CYO NATIONALS Tribute is not an official CYO event.
Performances for the night include:
- Boston Crusaders - Boston, MA - CYO Champions 1964, 1966 & 1967
- Madison Scouts - Madison, WI - CYO Champions 1974, 1975
- Carolina Crown - Ft. Mill, SC

and a special selection of DCA/alumni corps yet to be determined.
