  5. Pete Weber returns to Cavies?

    And BTW, Jeff is a former marching member, but still a Cavalier.
  6. Pete Weber returns to Cavies?

    Pete has been designing for Green Thunder for several years. He's also a Cavalier, and always welcome home.
  7. Those sounds are not sequenced. They are all sampled and triggered by members in the pit.
  8. If given the opportunity to develop their program, the current brass staff under David Clemmer will produce an excellent brass ensemble. I'm also sure that they will recruit great players who will love their approach. Program choices are another issue.
  9. Prelims!

    HEY! That's our line!
  10. A Cavalier Question

    They are playing every note. The guys tell me that the the orientation of the neighboring drums brings them closer to their head (does that make any sense?) and it's actually easier to hear than when they are all standing up. BTW, this upside-down thing is something the guys themselves came up with, and then sold to Mac. Dave
  11. Fundraising

    Look here: http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php/forum/292-dcp-sponsorboard-2011-season/ Perhaps more importantly, contact everyone you know (or can think of) who has a job or a business. Compose a compelling story about what you are trying to do, and why, and be ready to sell yourself. Be specific in your request. Example: My corps will perform 30 times this summer. Will you commit to $10 per performance? Be creative. There are many ways to get this done. People with money are out there, and will help a kid who is trying to do something significant. But you have to ask. Nobody is going to voluntarily give you money. If you cop out and convince yourself that no one will help, that you aren't a salesman, that it can't be done...well, you're right. And you probably shouldn't be marching drum corps. But if you are willing to suck it up and proudly ask for support, you'll get it. Good luck. Dave

    That corps SO should have won. Travesty.
  13. Cavaliers 2009

    We had 146 members on the field in 2009, 147 with the shofar dude. There were actually several different shofar dudes throughout the season. And yes, you could hear it clearly.
  14. Boo, what in God's name is that?
