Colt Cadets Tour

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO MAKE THIS WORK. Colt Cadets volunteers are the lifeblood of the summer tour. Check your schedule and make plans to get out on tour. We are still looking for help on nearly all days of the summer. Please contact Andy Eaton, Colt Cadets Director, by emailing to get on the schedule. Even a day or two helps! Get more details about how to get involved on our Volunteer Page. You can click here to view the Colt Cadets Volunteer Calendar for this season.

Mail Drops

Please remember to NEVER send anything directly to a housing site. The school secretary will think it is the new textbook the teacher ordered, and put it in the school warehouse until fall. Please also only use our pre-scheduled mail drop locations. Do not send mail to the post office in a town we will be passing through. We don't have the time to go pick it up on tour. Typically, everything MUST be sent via United States Postal Service. Do NOT send anything via UPS, FedEx, or any other carrier unless we specifically say it is acceptable.

Mail Drop #1: Spring Training
For Spring Training, send all mail to the corps offices. We will make almost daily runs between Dubuque and the corps. You may use any carrier for this time period. Address mail as follows:
(Member Name)
C/O Colts Drum & Bugle Corps
2300 Twin Valley Drive
Dubuque, IA 52003

Additional mail drops will be posted closer to summer.

Send something every time! And pass these addresses around to friends and family, too! Anything that arrives late will be automatically forwarded to the next mail drop.

Mail early to be sure. Express Mail can provide guaranteed delivery times in a pinch. Consider Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes for heavier "care packs" although Priority Mail generally does not save time over First Class mail. Packages should be shipped First Class, not Parcel Post.
