  1. Boston Crusaders 2018

    <gosh> And I wasn't even invited...haha That sure looks like the "A" team to me :)
  2. Boston Crusaders 2018

    Gino Cipriani will be on this same show/forum...SUNDAY OCTOBER 22nd....it is not even CLEAR to me how to actually listen to these shows...whether you need to be a member and where you actually go to watch or listen...It's also VERY difficult to share Facebook link off of Facebook... I am sure attendance would be MUCH improved if this information was spelled out in better detail. Cool though to see this initiative was started by a former Crossmen and Crown drum major...
  3. I'm definitely biased on this one... 1990 Boston Crusaders
  4. Boston Crusaders 2018

    I was not aware of the fall festival...guess this is their first annual for that...according to this flyer...sweet
  5. FloMarching makes a funny

    I am not sure what the big hoopala is here. The writers at flo seem to follow discussions here as I've seen quite a few articles parallel much of the DCP discussion. Sometimes I think we take things WAY to serious (myself included) and start criticizing a company that seems to be making a concerted effort at doing things right. Are they perfect? They are definitely far from that. I was actually not expecting very much from Flo's streaming service, but to my surprise the quality was actually not bad at all (my grades are audio A, video B-) from my own personal experience. Although to note, my computer is set-up for a high-end gaming experience, so this may be a differentiating factor in why I'm satisfied with the experience from Flo. My main complaint of the video experience is that video staff that seems to miss "capturing" the cool show moments for many of the corps and close-ups are WAY TOO CLOSE imo. As far as other customer issues. I've read people complaining about being charged, but never actually took the steps to properly cancel their subscription. I canceled my subscription without incident. I've heard people complain that they were charged for a yearly subscription and wanted monthly, but failed to read that if you pay yearly you are in effect just getting a monthly savings. I've heard people complain about what days their card is charged, yet fail to read the terms of service agreement. If you rush through things without taking the time to actually read and understand what is clearly outlined for all to see, then most of these issues would not even exist in the first place. That said, Flo should perhaps follow the playbook of my local grocery store "Stew Leonard's"...that store has grown to become not only the World's largest dairy store, but one of the most renowned grocery stores, with annual sales of almost $400 million and almost 2,000 team members (top 100 best places to work as well - Source: fortune magazine). "Rule #1 -- The Customer is Always Right"; Rule #2 - If the Customer is Ever Wrong, Re-Read Rule #1." This principle was so essential to the foundation of the company that it was etched in a three-ton granite rock at each store's entrance.
  6. Rest in Peace Paul Cain

    He will be missed. RIP

    "Each one of the nine appointed users will have to select their winning corps by January 1st before the season starts." I'll vote early... Blue Devils 'nuff said.

  10. Question about college?

    I don't know the linguistics here...but for an audition for OSU...sounds like that date can be changed...If he is marching corps just contact the university music program and tell them that very fact. I'm sure they will be more than accommodating for that situation.
  11. C'mon Dix! The INTENT of that proposal was never made to benefit anyone but themselves. It was all about being exclusive and not inclusive. Please stop trying to re-write history. While the "Tour of Champions" concept has proven to be successful itself, many of the detail elements proposed for that concept have not been very successful at all. Small ensembles and interviews for example now are non-existent at these events. The only element that has survived is the competition itself and that is the same as other shows.
  12. Scott Stewart puts Cadets next season in 10th...tongue-in-cheek of course...
  13. Age Outs

    I trust your counts. Who knows where flomarching sourced their info..besides they had blue devils winning with 100 + points...haha
