    Ahhhh, Cheerwine. I might have to go buy some today.
  2. Carolina Crown 2017

    Just listened to the audio recording, and sounds like there was some decent editing happening to take out the electronics issues. Wondering if this was the semifinals recording.
  3. Carolina Crown 2018

    From what I saw on Sunday, I don't think it affected retention one bit. And even if it does, they have more than enough talent there to reload. Crown will be just fine.

    Robust! Well done kids!

    Crown has another audition camp coming up in December. From what I've been told, that's when a lot of the vets start coming back. At that time, they'll start making offers and begin the cut process.

    There really weren't any parents there. That's all potential members - it was a very large group.
  7. Carolina Crown 2018

    Was at Nation Ford on Sunday - only for a few. Over 200 brass at tryouts. I didn't get a good look at the guard or the drums (had to leave prior to show and tell) but there were quite a few there as well. Brass sounded great, maybe a bit better than they did last November. There were definitely more brass players at this camp than a year ago. Anyone worried about Crown having a down year... its not going to happen. Solid first camp for the multi-colored purple and cream team.
  8. Finals Format

    It was easier back in the day when each corps would play themselves off the field. Even starting the shows an hour earlier would help
  9. Finals Format

    The only thing I would change is having a drum majors retreat on Friday night and announce the scores at the end of the show. And possibly start Semifinals about an hour or two earlier. Friday night tends to run on way too long.
  10. Show schedule date?

    Should be out sometime next week.
  11. Sign the Petition

    Things have changed dramatically since the days that I marched. My guess is there are policies, security and background checks and training involved for all staff. This is an extremely serious issues that I have no doubt is addressed, especially in this day and age.
  12. Apologies if this has already been answered, but generally when do the Finals audio recordings get released? I'm a bit worried, I've yet to see any pre-order information for CD's and Video's. Anyone else find this strange?

    My work here is done....

    Not to drag this out anymore than it needs to be, but I don't need to watch it again. They're taking business communication that was meant for the parties involved and sharing it on social media. I understand we live in a world that feeds on gossip (especially this site) but I won't be part of that. They have no inside knowledge or background to bring any sensible context to the conversation (being a member of Cadets2 does not give you inside knowledge of management operations and issues). But even more so, there is an ethical issue with all of this that could be dangerous for them, the organization and the activity.
