  1. Got a notice from the host via E-Mail that there's been a schedule change for Nazareth: "Here is the new schedule for the event: 6:45 - Welcome/National Anthem 6:50 - EnCorps 7:10 - Skyliners 7:27 - Bushwackers 7:44 - Long Island Sunrisers 8:01 - Hawthorne Caballeros 8:18 - Reading Buccaneers 8:35 - White Sabers 8:52 - Cadets2" Plan on hitting Rios Steak House at 4PM.
  2. Nazareth hasn't been cancelled as of the time of this post. I found my CV bucket hat. All I need for rain shows. If the show is on, I'll be there.
  3. "bad" as compared to x kind of "bad". "bad" as maybe costing them a championship or two because of the tenths lost to others kind of "bad". It's not easy to take a championship when you're trying to dig out of a 6ish place hole in a caption with a certain amount of bleed into Ensemble and Effect Music and then try and make that up against competitors more consistent across the board.

    12th place Corps ?

    Ticks were still around in 1984. DCA took awhile to go that way. Local band circuit was still using them in 1984 and transitioned in 1985.
  5. Ahhah! MACBDA is one of those things kind of unknown out this way. That explains it.
  6. The corps does some great promo videos. So who are the Green Beret MB? I found the RHR website. Nice to hear Ohio's building something.
  7. Well, my friends and I used to don fencing gear in college and have at it in the stairwells like Zorro. Terrified the people who came to the stairwell doors, looked through the window then ran off. At least we were smart enough to wear the helmets. Always liked the sabre, I was never subtle enough for the epee or foil.... or some of the other fake weapons people brought to the fun. Now I really want to see this show.

    Standings as of now DCA

    Back then, people like Truman Crawford and Jim Prime, Sr. were really helpful to the corps in encouraging us in the right directions and attitude.

    Cadets 2018

    Oh, the clarity of that section is top notch. That kind of stuff can totally blur, smear, and garble in that register of the horn. Especially with several people on split parts. As a Euphonium major, I have to give serious props to all of them.

    Cadets 2018

    Someone commented earlier they needed more rips in Ballet Sacra like the older version... Listening to the excerpt around 2:04, how 'bout that Baritone section on those 16th triplets? That's some serious quality.

    Yeah, prelims is the first time anyone really sees head to head relationships for everyone.
  12. Yeah.... Unknown if they struggled or not.

    Their numbers are strong. Diggin' it.
  14. My guess is that means they're still very demanding and have high expectations, just not at the insane atom-splitting level of World Class. That is a big help and I think a compliment to the corps considering that CT's number holds well with several of the opens, and they're pretty good.
  15. Percussion's always been the cornerstone there. Reading between the lines, a fair amount of them move up into the Cadets when they're ready.
  16. The deuce seems to be some minimum. Then they tack incrementally after that for more time after a certain point by my guess.
  17. Just saw that, Jim. "CT Motto: Believing that our competition is stronger and better than us pushes us to better ourselves." Wise stuff there. Was never stated that way by a certain HS unit I worked with but we applied that principle heavily.
  18. C2 did some serious gap closure.

  22. Ditto. Did everyone appear to have their show completed to you?

    Once the recap is published, folks can figure out if any of the panel are DCA people.

    Educated guesses- someone from the corps sent it into DCX. Or, DCX has some friend somewhere who gets everything and sends it their way who happened to be involved with that contest.
