    1989 - the show that made me want to march them 2015 - jawdropping from beginning to end 1993 - one of the great ones from the swing days 2016 - Great Gig and finest collection of soloists 1987 - Autumn Leaves w/expanding snare line! HM 1990 - the year I marched :) 1986 - first show I saw at a finals 2006 1997 Least fav 1992

    Is this the same piece that SCV used as the opener in '82 and '83?

    Caught some rehearsal footage on Periscope and I'm sure they were playing The Canyon...

    The Cavaliers 2017

    My bet for the Steve Vai... Previously used as the basis for the Blue Knights' percussion feature in 1993 (kudos Ralph Hardimon) Looks like a home run in terms of programming...can't wait to get a taste.

    You know who I miss?

    What about hostrauser? He did a great job with his rankings page for many a season!
  12. I have the $99 subscription but can't seem to get access through the website, although it is showing up on my iPad (same as jwillis reported). Here's the response from the live chat support: EmilieHi Jay. Did you purchase the PPV for tonight's show? The show tonight is available only as a PPV as it is a fundraising event for the corps. $30 of your purchase will go directly to the drum corps of your choice. This is a special broadcast an not available as part of any of the DCI Live! Subscriptions. You can find more information here: http://www.dci.org/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=33500&ATCLID=211085600
  13. I feel really stupid posting this, but here goes... So I installed the DCI.org app on my iPad, logged into my account, all good. On the "Featured" tab I see the listing for the DCI Southwestern Championships. I click on the "Watch Live" link and it just pops up a box with the event and ticket info...what else is there to do to go to the video feed? I don't see it when clicking on the "Video" tab under the Main Menu either. Thanks for any and all assistance...
  14. Any chance you could make the ranking pages rotatable? Great app, thanks...
