The Optimists Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Corps: Western Tech, Toronto Optimists
Fondly known as “Fink”, Mike came to Optimists from Western Tech and marched in the Colour Guard for several years.
Once, asked what he played in the Corps, he quickly responded “Flag”.
He was known as a joker and once managed to connect four or five flag poles together and came marching over the hill, flying a flag that could be seen ten minutes before you could see Mike.
During his days at Western Tech, he rowed at the Argonaut Rowing Club, and while out rowing one day, discovered a body floating in the water. For years he denied that it was an ex-horn player from Optimists that couldn’t play very well, and was taken to task by other Optimist members.
