Surf may also be an example of staying home as long as possible, but playing in competive shows east of the Mizzipi. Mandarin, on the other hand needs to ride on the coattails (playing in the same shows) of BD and SCV for as long as they can to be able to afford Indy.
Just my SWAG. If you don't know what a SWAG is, just ask. It involves a somewhat crude term, inoffensive to most, but offensive to some, but there is a donkey named Jack who is involved in one of the the letters.

Bottom line for me is certain corps are depriving the fans. Corps that make a full tour, corps who contend for the title ought to perform as much as possible in my view.
Well, I learned something new today from being on here. I didn't know that this is not a new thing for BD in that they tend to perform less in competition than a lot of other Corps.
24 competitions before Championship Week is more than a 3rd less than some of the other World Class Corps... semes like a lot to me. Oh well. It seems to work for them, so thats that, I guess.

Not sure I agree with this.
Doesn't mean I don't agree with that.
Still, the fans pay. Cavies and Devils missing from the line-up is tickets unsold.

Looking at our schedule this year, a couple of things... first, our first performance is on June 23rd in Bayonne, but our first competition isn't until the 29th. We still have a week off early in July, followed by a week of rehearsals while we travel down to Texas, a break of 12 days between competitions. Finally, we have no shows scheduled between Allentown and Indy. Nothing too out of the ordinary, so I'm going to say that it's more rehearsal days to really clean and max out the show. It's not a "full" tour in the usual sense, but it is by far the most ambitious tour in recent memory (if ever) for Surf.

Good luck to all in the start of the season next month.
Eat'em up, Boston.
You are right I was wrong Boston is starting in California my mistake. Yeah, I know that BD has fewer show's, but i'm also looking at regular season, they are gonna have to be housed somewhere. BD, is a great example of getting things done that's for sure. Hopefully everyone will do well this season!

more than Vanguard or Boston though?
My opinions represent every corps I have ever seen perform, both live and on video/dvd.

The more subjective in nature the scoring is, the less control the participant has over the outcome... Petty protection of egos (at the expense of others) becomes more important than our stated objective -- development and improvement of everyone involved. - Scott Stewart, 1997

The DCI definition of "full tour" is to join the tour by San Antonio and stay with it from then through championships. Jersey Surf is doing that in 2012; therefore, they will be a full-touring world-class corps.
