Data

Many sources were used to compile the list of corps that competed in the RCA Championships, from other resources it was discovered that other corps were listed at various RCA contests but not at the finals. As was RCA protocal to ensure every corps competed as equally in a year, contests were booked as follows - Contest host would invite 3 RCA member corps with 2 RCA corps bidding for the remaining spots(winning biddder corps assigned based on number of contests booked), this done at the annual meeting. If the slate could not be filled by member corps others could be invited. Therefore when reveiwing the data avalable at the time of producing this list there still could be member corps that never travelled to the finals (unlikely) and non member corps that competed at RCA sanctioned contests.
