  1. Brian, I always love your posts. I have some questions you probably can answer about Crossmen history in 70-80s. Could you message me back when you have time? Scott Myers, Hanover PA - hammerrd7@gmail.com. Thanks!

  2. 1978 DCI top 12 directors 1. SCV - Gail Royer 2. Phantom - Bob Lendman. 3. BD - Jerry Seawright. 4. Madison - Scott Stewart. 5. Bridgemen - Ed Holmes ? , but Bobby Hoffman. 6. Spirit - Freddy Martin. 7. 27th - George Bonfiglio. 8. Blue Stars - Dr. David Kampschour (probably misspelled, sorry). 9. Crossmen - Robbie Robinson All in the HOF. I'm just saying.....
  3. I noticed DCI is promoting Hall of Fame nominations on the website. Why isn't Harold "Robbie" Robinson in the HOF? I watched my first finals in 1978 and I think every director of a top 9 corps that year is in the Hall. Just wondering here in Pennsylvania.
  4. I LOVE DRUM CORPS! 35 years since I watched my first DCI Finals and many DCI and DCA shows later, I still do! Just contributed.......
  5. 1. 1978 - Top 4 battling right up to Denver (SCV, Phantom, BD, and the Scouts). SCV win! (My favorite show ever!) 2. 1980 - my favorite top 12 to see and listen to. 27th, Bridgemen, Spirit, even Crossmen and Northstar 3. 1981 - SCV back on top. Cadets really starting their run. Great show from Troopers and Sky Ryders at Whitewater 4. 1988 - Scouts and BD were awesome! Best of SCV's Phantom show 5. 1989 - SCV back on top again. Crossmen back in finals 6. 1992 - Crossmen really great. SCV with the Fiddler show 7. 1986 - Great BD corps. 8. 1979 - First set of DCI albums I purchased. Wore them out in a few years. 9. 1975 - Scouts show unreal. Metzger wailing. BD really explodes on the scene. 10. 1977 - First time I watched Finals live on PBS Sorry if I double posted or worse. Have gotten out of practice! Congratulations DCI on a great 40th anniversary season!
  6. 1980 Spirit of Atlanta After the first 30 seconds of Georgia........... Unbelievable!

  12. BD - Pittsburgh SCV - NY Giants Cavies - Cowboys Cadets - Patriots Crown - maybe Arizona? Bluecoats - NY Jets Phantom - Eagles (except for the actually titles thing) Madison - Ravens Troopers - Broncos Crossmen - Dolphins I dunno. I might rethink this tonight
  13. As a Crossmen fan since the 1970s, I think Gary's comments speak volumes. Whether I agree with all of Hop's views or not, I have great respect for his commitment and excellence and truly appreciate all he has done for the corps, the Cadets, and Drum Corps. Congratulations to George and Gary on this honor! GO BONES!
