Madison's logo is still the Fleur-de-Leis (sp?), but do not have any
affiliation with the BSA. Madison is also one of the two remaining
"All-Male" Drum & Bugle Corps. The other one is the Cavaliers, from
Rosemont, Illinois. These two corps may have women on their support
staff (laying out flags and such), but not as a member on the
Best of luck to your Cavaliers, Mark!

Don't know about past history, but they don't wear kilts now. I do
know, though, that as of *last* year they
were one of the only Corps which labeled themselves as "boy only/" This
summer they had girls out there, too.
Didn't see any mention of it in their write=up.
