  1. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    Crossmen Design Team to return in 2018 Crossmen have announced that the entire design team and caption leadership from 2017 will return in 2018. Led by Program Coordinator Ed Devlin, the design team, caption leadership, and administrative leadership met in early September to chart a course for 2018. “To have such a high level of continuity as we move into next season, for the entire Crossmen organization is exciting,” said Ed Devlin. “2017 was a positive step forward for the corps, and we plan to build upon that with this team in 2018!” Caption leadership has been working to finalize their staff rosters for next season and full caption announcements are expected next week.

  3. This is not a suggestion for music, per se, but a suggestion of different percussion instruments to try in the pit. I saw a show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music last night that featured Vietnamese percussion instruments. Here is a video of the percussionist playing some of them:

    Congratulations for the 2017 Crossmen uniform winning in this "best uniform" poll:
  5. Cool. I like that it opens up a new geographic region that hasn't been in World Class before.
  6. Staff Merry-go-round 2018 Edition

    I bet lots of people expected a ton more announcements by now--like a dam bursting. But, no.
  7. 2017 DCI survey

    Leave it to DCI to ask a non-representative sample of DCI fans. I guess the opinions attendees to the regionals or any number of other competitions don't matter.
  8. 2017 DCI survey

    Just checked both my inbox and spam folder. Nothing. But, I didn't buy DCI Tickets this year. I attended DCI East in Allentown, but my sister purchased the tickets. Would love to provide them with my opinion on amplification.

    A message from the Crossmen official Facebook Page:
  10. How About Some Common Ground?

    If a corps' electronics fail before they start and it delays them from starting on time, they will get a penalty. Example: Crossmen a few years ago and it almost kept them out of finals. But, if a corps' electronics fail in the middle of the show, there is no demerit of any kind?
  11. Enough Judging Conspiracy Theories

    Did you feel the way last year when they decided not to release recaps? We have no skin in the game, why do we need to see them?
  12. Enough Judging Conspiracy Theories

    I just think it's amazing that everyone is guessing at how it works. Why is the process such a secret from the fans?
  13. Enough Judging Conspiracy Theories

    So, the selection of the judges for the biggest shows is a fairly secretive process that the general public is not informed about. Isn't that a situation ripe for conspiracy theories? Do the corps staffs even know how it's done?
  14. Enough Judging Conspiracy Theories

    In regards to judging, does anyone know how judges are chosen for the three shows in Indianapolis? Or for the regionals, for that matter? Are their names pulled at random or does someone actually select them? If they are selected, what are the criteria for being selected to judge the show that will determine the final results of the season? If they are selected, who selects them?
  15. Staff Merry-go-round 2018 Edition

    Labor Day sounds like a good time to choose regardless of the DCA angle. Besides giving corps time to adjust to whatever changes they are making or being thrust upon them by exiting staff, it give the drum corps community (members, fans) time to just sit back and cherish the season that just ended before the merry-go-round starts.
