    2018 Uniforms!

    Interesting analysis. It took a long time to introduce the concepts of shared musicality, staging, dynamics among the 3 distinctions of horns, drums, guard. I'm pleased. Thank you.

    No worries. Drum corps is always about the music. Close your eyes and listen or open your eyes, listen and watch people perform to the music with added delights. Both are good.

    I just saw a short video of BK playing Can't Take My Eyes Off You. Your 3rd sentence might be right.

    Old Recordings

    I bought a turntable a few years ago that copies record albums and cassette tapes to CD. I found a local vendor that does the same plus copies VHS to DVD. I snail mailed copies to various people across North America with the provision that this is a gift for their personal enjoyment. 1980 State of the Art and SCV's Through the Years are 2 of my favourite CD's. Cool you too.
  5. I've read DCP posts, laughed, cried, bewildered, amused, confused. Suggested solutions is a good idea for an activity meant for good people and to have wonderful memories.
  6. It was 1975. Our corps took a trip to watch DCI finals in Philadelphia. Our director made it happen. Many thanks to him. When traveling we always took the Niagara route around Lake Ontario except in 1975 we took the Philadelphia to Kingston route. I had hugging Madison Scouts members on my mind when border patrol decided to inspect our buses in the early morning. Every horn case, drum case and luggage had to be removed and repacked at the border. The Great Lakes are big and wide. Always take the same border crossing so patrol know who you are. We figured Kingston crossing had a daily inspection quota and they met their daily quota by 7:00 am. with 2 buses full of sleeping kids. lol good times
  7. Alberta and British Columbia have guard teams and many provinces have drum lines. Likewise. We continue to patronize and enjoy the pageantry/performance arts but we do miss being able to subscribe to your live feeds ;)
  8. Thank you for this. I can't sign up for Flo. This is the next best thing. Winter guard is always my happy place. Thanks KVG_DC. Drummers rock;)

    Upstate NY Circuits

    In 1970 I marched with one of the corps listed. Thanks Keith.
  10. You should be justifiably proud too as I never knew these two were us once. I've listened to Chick for years and will listen to Diane now. Thank you.
  11. I like. Thank you. Had tough days at the office for weeks. This made my day. I realize this piece may have been cited here before but Henry V helped me finish that document. Stormy rock group was the icing on the cake of an otherwise trying day. Hugs N.E.

    FloMarching

    Will FloMarching allow non US to register in 2018? I miss watching winter guard and drum corps live stream. Hugs. edit: I contacted and received a response '...but the countries events are available in varies event to event. each event will have that specific information available on its event pages...'. It is what it is.

    Favorite year as MM

    The last time I saw DCI finals in another century was 1983 Miami Florida. In 2010 (this century) we went to finals. Thank you so much for helping me relive this wonderful experience. As an MM, I have 2 favourite years; 1970 and 1976. In 1970 we won in our class and in 1976 we saw BD and PR often on tour and we performed in DCI finals too. Drum Corps is cool.
  14. ...um...hi...i was baptized (Estonian) lutheran lol;)
