  2. 2018 Rules proposals

    Where did you hear this passed? I think that was only a proposal...
  3. I live in Connecticut and the drive to A-town is not bad at all...matter of fact I drive right by Newark airport on my way on Route 78 ...goes straight to Allentown and about (1 1/2 hour drive from there without traffic)...BE CAREFUL on leaving enough time on Friday...Friday afternoon driving can be murder...I suggest travelling on Friday morning via car...get off the Dorney Park exit...I've also made the trip from Philly to A-town from the Chester PA TOC show...again afternoon traffic is murder...Philly airport is to the moving through philly even on rt 476 can be a little rough on Friday afternoon by car...(it's about 1h 15 min without traffic)...the Chester show is AMAZING....I actually like the acoustics BETTER than A-town because of the overhang which captures the sound...Chester show is Wednesday and a-town is Friday though

    I agree..not a fan for 15 at finals..dilutes the exclusiveness...I've never been a fan of the philosophy of everyone getting a participation trophy...

    Honestly I wish they just get RID of this groups of 3 BS....I think looking more toward the competitive season of the current season is a GOOD idea...I think!???! POINT #4 is an interesting change...
  7. 2018 Rules proposals

    I don't mean to be obtuse here. Lot's of shows get rained out, but don't get moved you are saying only shows that have a PLANNED contingency for their show should it rain would be included in this rule?

    Does this mean that plan B is a given for ALL SHOWS? ...or just certain shows?
  9. I'm getting started early...haha I wanted to beat emc2 to the punch this year...yep We also must get first place in number of thread pages on DCP and take the Cadets title away from them...haha So how are them sox? ...haha

    I guess we just need to throw out the scores altogether and just look at the spreads between the scores...scores are meaningless in your example for sure...
  11. Cadets v.s. Boston Crusaders

    Agree...I've thought this to be true for them for many years...always felt their work ethic trumped the raw talent...or better to say that talent that was a little raw was molded by their staff into greatness...I'm just not getting that vibe lately...
  12. Blue Knights Video deleted

    it's a conspiracy...

  15. I have NEVER donated to drum corps looking for a tax deduction...but I guess others may have different motives...
  16. I did not have any problems with cancelling my subscription this past August.
  17. Cadets v.s. Boston Crusaders

    Bias aside....BAC is on an uptick...
  18. This writers piece begins with the premise that: "The theatrics of many of today’s corps shows lean to the dark side, and the meanness of the cultural ethos is on display with music and visual gimmicks built on our infatuation with death, survival of the fittest, sexual intrigue, the occult." Some drum corps shows may lean a certain direction as a reflection of our culture around it, but the writers premise itself seems to be flawed in that he states that "we" collectively have an "infatuation" with these sorts of themes. I disagree. Some drum corps shows have been merely reflecting cultural values already present in our society. Some shows are reflecting the culture back on itself, sometimes in a mocking way, sometimes as a mode of giving us more self-awareness, and sometimes as a way of pushing the boundaries of what makes great art great...that is pushing us out of our comfort zone. I argue that we are not getting "meaner" as a reflection of the artistic content that is portrayed in the marching idiom. We are perceived to be getting meaner because instead of seeking to understand opposing point of views and to find compromise, people today seem to understand their mission to be to battle against the other side. The goal becomes to prove them wrong. Name-calling, hate speech, and general nastiness are par for the course in this type of divisive environment. Unfortunately, with the advent of Facebook and other social avenues like twitter, it has only escalated further for people to position their opinions without any veil of sensitivity for others.
  19. Great interview. It would be great to see pioneer build their brass program. I would be very excited to see that :)
