The Crosstown Tornadoes is a new corps in the process of organizing in 2004, based in Central, Connecticut. Initiated in 2003 by the DeFelice family (Bob DeFelice is executive director of the Connecticut Hurricanes), the corps plans to build membership and participate in as many parades as possible to increase public awareness of this new marching organization. Their goal is to participate in DCI Division II/III in 2005.
Age of membership ranges from 8 to 16. New uniforms from North Force of Fargo, North Dakota, are red, black, and white.
