    2018 Uniforms!

    Space Pimps!
  2. I was at Bluecoats rehearsal last night . Bluecoats show is exciting, complex and emotional. All sections seem to be firing on all cylinders. It is June so, the show is not what it's going to be in August but, when you have this much to work with, it looks like a really good season ahead. The prop choreography is very good for June and the guards visual interpretation of the music is on point. The Bluecoats have a audience friendly show that will get you out of your seat combined with the substance in all captions to compete at the highest levels.

    2018 Predictions

    Devils, Have a slightly better than good chance to win. If this was a Threepeat year I'd put them in 2nd or 3rd. SCV, Has a good chance to win. Awesome show last year but, that was last year. Added drill writing god to their staff. Should be good! Crown, Has a good chance to win. now the percussion situation fixed. Always great brass, Excellent colorguard, and show design god. puts them up there. Bluecoats, Have a good chance to win. Can't wait to see what their brilliant design teem come up with this year. Saw It! BLUECOATS ARE FIYAH! Cavaliers, Has been steadily improving I see them as the 5th C in the Carolina,Concord,Canton,Clara crowd Boston, Should be better but, How much better? Top 3 better? Cadets, After the recent scandal and change of schedule and show restructuring, I have no clue. I'm sure the staff and Alumni will motivate the kids to be their best. Their staff is good enough to pull off something in the top 6. How will the judges react? Bk, Very entertaining shows lately. Can they top 5 in captions? Phantom, has always been a wait and see corps for me. they can land anywhere 5-10. Blue Stars,are where BK used to be a couple years ago , floating between 8 -11 Madison, IMO had the ugliest show in drum corps last year but, it got them back into the finals. Crossmen, I thought Xmen were better than their scores showed all last year Mandarin, I thought Mandarin should have made finals over Madison ( no hate for Madison ) Academy, I always root for Academy to make finals Colts, I always root for Academy to make finals If someone put a gun to my head: 1-4 I'm ducking bulletes 5.-7 Cadets, Cavies, Crusaders- in no particular order 8. Blue Knights 9. Phantom 10.Blue Stars 11.Crossmen 12.Mandarin 13.Madison 14. Academy 15. Colts *I wrote my predictions on the first Prediction Thread back in March

    The future of the Cadets

    This was written by someone who knows nothing about The Cadets. For the record,: The Cadets practice hard, eat great! eat plenty,( Eat Better than a lot of corps) Sleep on the buses after shows just like other corps, Arrive at their schools at 3am or 4 am just like other corps. have floor time until 8,9,10 or 11 just like other corps, Have days off and wash clothes days just like other corps. Don't know where you got your info Bone-Drone.

    Madison Scouts 2018

    You're about 30 years too late. The 70's and 80's were full of them.
  10. Cadets- I love Bernstein BD- Me! Can you believe it! Bluecoats- Been waiting for a corps to play Zappa! Crown- Not very fond of the singing in their program but the rest of it is amazing!

    Moving to a top 4 corp

    Moving to another corps to improve quality of instruction and placement is quite common. Make sure you go to a corps you'll enjoy being with. Drum corps is hard enough, Harder if you're not happy. I remember leaving my top 25 corps to play 1st baritone for a top 5 corps. It was fine, I met some great people, the instruction was stellar but it wasn't close to family. I went back to my old corps after 1st tour. ( we had 1st and 2nd tour back then) The top 5 corps filled my spot with one of many alternates, we parted on good terms. My small corps fill a much needed spot and the big corps did what big corps do, they never missed a beat. Bottom line. Do what makes you happy. You have a small window of time to enjoy this activity.
