  1. Today
  2. As the territories in recruitment expand to the outer reaches, its only a matter of time before Corps hold auditions on some of the other Planets. And when it happens, it just HAS to be the Cavaliers that'll most likely be the 1st. Afterall, what DCI Corps is currently more familiar and comfortable with The Planets than the Cavaliers ?
  3. Cadets 2018

    What the F does this have to do with Cadets 2018? Some of your guys' obsession with Hop is pitiful. Something happened THIRTY YEARS AGO and you still have a grudge. Reveals a lot about you. If you want to start a Hop bashing thread, by all means go ahead. However, I'm more interested in what is happening this year, right now. Glad to hear camps are going well
  4. Auditions happening in Texas, heard the brass down a hallway in a gymnasium. Sounded good. Edit: Also hello from page 6.
  5. Finals Format

    In 89 at Kansas City, the prelims were a completely random draw, top to bottom. I distinctly remember Cadets playing Les Mis on Thursday at about 2.30pm in the afternoon under a 98 degree sun on that turf. I think they were 3rd or 4th out of the gate to play that day.
  6. Finals Format

    I was in the stands for those championships. Most around me/us thought SCV sewed it up on Saturday night...when Scouts were named as champions, a bunch of us just looked at each other with our mouths open. It was NOT the universal bedlam in the stands that some seem to remember.... And I do know there are a lot of people who will say it was clear that Scouts were the winners that night, and they were certainly an awesome corps ... but from OUR vantage point, SCV owned the night.
  7. Finals Format

    I could see randomizing corps after Thursday's show into groups of three, so the 10/11/12, 7/8/9, 4/5/6, and 1/2/3 groups performed in drawn order from within their respective tier. It likely wouldn't make that much of a difference in the final scores (at TOC shows, even if BD performs first, they usually win in years when they dominate), but it would make for a little intrigue on the big night. As an observation, the unspoken sentiment of the opposition to the concept following the '88 experiment appears to be a belief that the 'wrong corps' won that night and that the draw had something to do with it. Not saying I agree or disagree with that belief, but it's the gorilla in the room.

    Hopefully BFD TV (if they filmed the concert) will have the videos shortly.
  9. Boston Crusaders 2018

    The Boston Crusaders Sr. Corps, along with several other Corps, performed yesterday in Plymouth, Ma. for that town's annual Thanksgiving Parade, and then, as their custom, along with other Corps did a standstill exhibitiion that evening in one of the town's halls. The Boston Crusaders Sr. Corps is still going strong since its formation in 1990.

    I like his bus. I can imagine the "just making a statement" jawboning as a corps pulls into a lot with these.
  11. Madison Scouts 2018

    This is a cool way to spend the off season with everyone. These responses make us very humbled. Awesome Thanks
  12. Cadets 2018

    So, getting back to this monkey on my back. I was hoping to ask if you have the score of your 1983 opener? I was wondering if our Super Corps could borrow it for a bit? Just curious? Thanks for any response. Peace

  15. Found the guy. Looks like he spent many years in Germany.
  16. I believe this was one of the ones shown on that show. From the UK. This next one looks familiar.

    "Italian designer" does not readily bring to mind visions of efficiency.
  18. Cadets 2018

    Well, an hour hand and a minute hand.
  19. Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    Let’s say you work with a youth organization and see a rare red Ferrari in mint condition that you want to use as a promotion for the youth activity in a parade. There is tons of paperwork and a long waiting period to file with a company, that you hate, in order to possibly gain permission from the owner to use the vehicle; and moreover that wait would take you past the parade date. So you grab the keys, which are under the floor mat, leave a note of thanks, and go ahead and drive the vehicle in the parade. The owner sees the car on TV and decides to file charges of theft. You respond, “Wait, wait, wait, it was for the youth!!!“. Would you do that? Well, that is exactly the same type of scenario concerning the theft of intellectual property done by many bands and corps in which some of you are in favor of. When someone arranges music which is Copyrighted, places that arrangement in a performance, and records and videos that performance, they have to ‘lease’ the right to do so or face the consequences!!! The Copyright owner still owns the music, irrespective of what form it takes!!! Stealing is stealing folks; just because it is intellectual property in an abstract form used for ‘the youth’ does not change the ownership nor the Copyright.

  22. Yesterday
  23. Ten plus years ago there was a tv series about transportation ideas for the future being desinged then. A well known Italian designer of cars was working on trucks. He felt the large trucks were so inefficient. The prototypes he was working on were unbelievable.
