  1. DCPI Season 28 Poll

    Count me in!! It lets the winter pass by quicker in anticipation for the summer season
  2. DCPI Season 27 Show Announcements

    Show Title: Northern Lights Opener: Day One, music from The Interstellar, by Hans Zimmer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDOPyamt1JA) Ballad: Lux Aurumque, by Eric Whitacre (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkasK9ldBWE) Percussion feature: Subterranean Homesick Alien, by Radiohead (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEsgUiF2jGk) Closer: Vitae Aeternum, by Paul Lovatt-Cooper (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i5Y4ZSbrfw) Being a corps from the North, seeing the Northern Lights is a thing of beauty. The music/show concept will try to depict the beauty that is the Northern Lights. L'Étoile du Nord, formally known as Minnesota VanDevs, went through some changes this off season. A name change, corps color changes (from black and blue) to a Forest Green, Red, and White (think SCV) look with a possible uniform change mid show (think Seattle Cascades).

  5. DCP-I Season 27 Schedule

    It is in there. Looks like a formatting error with the name but not going to worry too much about that. Thank you for that quick fix. Thank you very much
  6. DCP-I Season 27 Schedule

    My corps name changed from Minnesota VanDevs to L'Étoile du Nord. That is what I meant by that. Log in and everything has stayed the same.
  7. DCP-I Season 27 Schedule

    When it comes to caption selections and tour editor, when can we go in and do this? I went in today and it has the wrong corps for me? Just curious and I know we have a few weeks before the season actually begins.
  8. Corps Name: L'Étoile du Nord Corps Location: Minneapolis, MN Class: World Class Good luck to everybody this season :)
  9. L'Étoile du Nord, formally known as Minnesota VanDevs, went through some changes this off season. A name change, corps color changes (from black and blue) to a forest Green, red, and silver look. We have also signed on with System Blue Horns and we are thrilled to be partnering with them for our brass and percussion. Just a few new things we wanted to introduce. Now, on with our show design. Our Corps name is the state Motto for Minnesota, meaning The Star of the North. Show Title: Northern Lights Opener: Day One, music from The Interstellar, by Hans Zimmer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDOPyamt1JA) Ballad: Lux Aurumque, by Eric Whitacre (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkasK9ldBWE) Percussion feature: Subterranean Homesick Alien, by Radiohead (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEsgUiF2jGk) Closer: Vitae Aeternum, by Paul Lovatt-Cooper (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i5Y4ZSbrfw) We hope you enjoy the show this summer as we are excited to be presenting it to crowds all across this fine country of ours. The weather might be cold here in Minnesota but the drum corps and the kids are on fire with learning the music, getting some drill on the field (yes, we have drill already). Thank you domed high school fields and US Bank Stadium. The kids have worked hard and we will be coming out strong. Good luck to you all this season and we can't wait to see you all on the road.

  11. 2016 DCPI Rules Congress

    haha DCA is not hiding recaps. They make them available right after the shows and post them on their website. I'd be game for a DCA fantasy thing! That'd be wicked awesome
  12. 2016 DCPI Rules Congress

    Are the captions going to change since there are no recaps to base your scores off? How will this change for next season? It's hard to pick a 3 visual scores when you have no clue what those actual scores are. Idk, maybe it's just me. As for the other thing, I know I took a few years off from fantasy drum corps as life got busy but I am glad I am back. It's been fun and it's nice to be in the mix for a finals placement. Thank you to those who put this on!! What happened to the "DCA Fantasy Drum Corps" thing. Will that ever come back?

  14. DCPI SEASON 26 LIVE

  15. DCPI SEASON 26 LIVE

    Is it still too late to sign up for this season? It's been a long time since I have done this and want to get back into it.
  16. DCA Finals Predictions

    I'd take that video with a grain of salt! That perfoance was after an 8 hour rehearsal in 100+ heat! I'm sure they were pretty exhausted after that type of rehearsal. Word has it they had a great weekend of rehearsals are ready to make some noise this weekend!!
  17. 2013 Rankings

    I wish there was a like button for this statement. It truly is an unfair advantage to those west and south. It probably won't change anytime soon
  18. downingtown

    Whoever was there, I want to hear your thoughts on MBI and bucs! Does MBI have a shot at winning title #2 in 3 years or will bucs win again?
  19. downingtown

    This will be awesome come finals weekend
  20. downingtown

    My apologies to Fran!! Yes let the show down begin!!
  21. downingtown

    Please stop being lazy and post what he is saying. Some of us don't have twitter and want to follow what's going on. It's kind of a big show at this point in the season
  22. downingtown

    Do it MBI!!!
  23. Downingtown Show Scores/Comments

    Anybody know the exact line up? I know who is there but performance order? Excited to see how MBI does!!!
  24. I was having a nice discussion yesterday on what show is better: The champions from 1996 or the 2nd place show from 2006. I'd love to hear the feedback of the DCP community! My vote is for 06 even though they didn't win (should have in my eyes). Better overall sound, better visual package, better percussion, just wrong year to go against "The Machine." Your thoughts?
