Email to The Blue Devils from Mr. Reumkens
Hello Dave, Gail, Pete and all the Devils!
Despite the fact that you propably will have seen this on our site, it
gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on winning the WMC
Championship title in the Show contests 2005, Corps Style Class!
I hope this will boost your morale in such a way, that you will now
head straight for the DCI Championship in Boston and make us all proud.
We decided to give Nancy, who escorted your group in such an excellent
way, the honour to receive the championship banner on your behalf at
the award ceremony in the stadium, which was sold out for the occasion
I hope you can agree with me on this one.
Fred Consten, our staff photographer, will add a number of photos to
this mail, so that you can see for yourself what the apotheosis of the
WMC 2005 looked like.
Bonne Chance for the remaining 10 days of preparation!
Let us stay in contact about how to get the championship banner to you
in California as soon as possible.
I am drowning in volunteers who would like to make the trip (Thea,
Regina, my wife, Nancy and many more), but it will have to be done with
dignity I think.
Thank you for your great contribution to the festival this year and we
hope to be able to continue this cooperation in the future.

From Dave Gibbs replying to Mr. Reumkens
Thank you so much for the email. This is WONDERFUL news. We have been
anxiously waiting the results. I announced the results to our members
and staff. They were extremely excited. I am planning a special night
for them to celebrate their great achievement at WMC.
That is great that Nancy accepted the award. It is very appropriate.
Your event and the trip was such an awesome experience. We will cherish
our memories forever. In some ways, we wish we were still over in
Europe with the extremely warm receptions. Your organization
exemplifies professionalism and fairness. We miss all very much.
We would love to see everyone again. I hope all can make it to California and be our special guest. Please let me know.
We will look forward to continued opportunities in the future. Thank you so much.
