You'd need a Belgian drum set for that.

Vanguard has 28 listed -- and you can clearly see from the scoring history when BD was at a show (SCV didn't win) .

Why can't BD do something like that???
I was surprised to see Crown marching a different drill to their show during the clinic performance part. Kudos to them for learning "extra" stuff in the name of music education. Even if it was simple and easy, it still took time away that could have been spent rehearsing and preparing for finals.

Many corps do stuff like that during clinics, Blue Devils included. It's not a big deal, and it's a nice diversion from the daily grind of the show.

The west coast fans are always complaining about the lack of shows and now one of their own corps is sitting at home practicing while passing on area shows. Cool.
Are BAC and Regiment are out there to pick up the slack?
All this talk about DCI selling excellence and the most excellent corps isn't even out there? Super cool dude, way to help out the team
It feels....I don't know, kind of selfish to me. Like they are being all G7 and not helping other shows draw and instead they are taking extra practice and rest to win at all costs. I guess if they can afford it, why not game the season?
I get why other corps would do limited tours to stretch their limited funds, but hey, it's the Blue Devils, right?
What do you think about it?
... or you could take a minute and thirty-seven seconds, go to their site or Facebook and see what they are actually doing before starting a topic like this rather than make assumptions. :-)
