Fear of new
Youth VS slightly older adult
Hop and his hidden agendas..( which there is no doubt)
BUT it can also be a positive and force some to move forward
Well, one thing you can't say about Hop is that he has a "hidden" agenda. He's quite open and clear about what he thinks the drum corps activity should be and where it should go. The people that don't like C2 or what they are doing all share one thing: Fear.
Fear that C2 will likely kick their corps' collective rear
Fear they will gain a vote to advocate change
Fear they will "steal" potential members (despite the fact that no corps has ever stolen a member from any other corps)
and the biggest fear? That a C2 success will bring other DCI corps into the DCA mix.
C2 will be successful. They will beat corps that aren't organized, designed, or taught as well. They will beat corps that simply don't work as hard. They will use their 2012 success to build an even stronger corps in 2013. I think the future of DCI Open Class, at least on the east coast, is in DCA.
And that absolutely terrifies fans of the Harrischester Buccalerros, and the rest of the long-time DCA corps.
