  1. What you want for 2018

    I want the Cadets to wow people again...don't care about their placement. And I want to see the return of head gear. The lack of head gear looks sloppy and takes away from the visual effect.

    Agree. Not sure why you have to get so confrontational. I was just stating my honest impressions from camp.

    Thank you glory! You are spot on. I have a friend who was there...he said there were people in the stands that were drunk and completely out of control. Sadly, there were some out of control drunks who followed the Cadets to their busses and continued yelling at the kids. That was the darkest night for drum corps that I ever experienced. I almost stopped following the activity that night. I was embarrassed to be a drum corps fan that infamous evening at the Rose Bowl!

    Really? I've been very critical of the Cadets in recent years. That hardly qualifies me as a borg!

    Not hypersensitive to his comments, I expected a similar reaction. If he's not interested in updates about the Cadets then maybe he should avoid the Cadets thread. Some of us are actually interested in news about how the corps is doing. And, "Most brasslines do sound good standing still" completely misses the point regarding my observations from camp this past weekend. And from a technical standpoint, you can identify better than average brass lines even when they are standing still.

    Nope...it was predictable!

    I have been waiting. I knew the negativity would return...surprised it took this long though!

    Enjoy. I look forward to your return on DCP.

    Enjoyed Cadets camp today. I must say, the improvement in the brass line over last year is remarkable. This line can part your hair...a lot of focus on power. And the book is way more interesting than last year. Drew Shanefield is doing great stuff...he wrote a great book. Really happy with the Cadets right now. I believe this is the best foundation the corps has had to build on for several years. Today was the debut of the vocals at ensemble. Very surprised that I was impressed...not a big fan of vocals in drum corps. The singers are extremely talented and the vocal arrangements seem way better than previous attemps. The Cadets should go into spring training with a really solid product. What happens when they put the show on the field is the real test. We shall see how it turns out. Hopefully, the design staff won't shoot themselves in the foot again this sason...please!

    OK. We will be there tomorrow.

    Agree 100% about Sensemaya...powerful stuff. It would be nice to meet you this afternoon.
  13. Cadets 2018

    You make some good points. And I will be careful to not insult the members. The Cadets have been a big part of my life and they're very special to me. Some times my frustration clouds my judgement when it comes to the Cadets. Excited for camp today...getting ready to go!

    The brass book definately has more meat...and it's very Cadet like. I actually really like the music so far. Will be attending camp today and tomorrow. The vocals will be added to the ensemble today. I will try to keep an open mind.
