  1. well guys - it's been fun having this "chat" so glad I spent 2 years building up DCP so it could be ruined by 8 snarky old farts see ya!
  2. Actually there are many within DCI that want the size limit to expand - including several voting members on the board As far as "me" - sorry but saying "why not 40 divisions" so everyone wins a championship isn't a constructive comment. You should well-recognize non-constructive comments as it is your specialty
  3. Cadets 2018

    24 or 25 tryouts for the tuba line spots - that's the online specific line I heard a count from as you already posted - most vets returning from 2017
  4. I hate to say it but I'm practically done trying to converse with people on DCP Just reactive nonsense with no support of their position. So frustrating and disappointing If you can't see a difference between year round organizations with full time office staff and many million budgets and the community type corps with PT directors that are run from the kitchen table then I don't know what to say
  5. more competitive LAYERS - ie: a third championship division it allows corps other than the very top bunch to compete for a championship even fully expanded the USA can really only support around 6 top tier organizations - the rest just compete for 7th or 8th place anyway - the idea of expansion to 200 or so allowed is to allow more creative freedom, increase the product's impressiveness and scale and finally - most importantly - encourage greater participation
  6. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    listening to this group of band kids watch BA during prelims is priceless - got to admire their unvarnished sense of excitement and the are pretty darn observant when it comes down to it
  7. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    GREAT program (and message) - love that show. LOVE it!!
  8. The idea is to layer in more options for corps at the various competitive/financial/time commitment levels
  9. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    from 4 weeks ago so they improved :)
  10. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    absolutely - the outdated "it's just band" attitude some still cling to is really ridiculous DCI is on a different level clearly due to experience, age and rehearsal time; but what these HS kids achieve is entirely impressive!
  11. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    if you are thinking of checking out a few do NOT miss Marion at 8:15, Carmel at 9:45 and Broken Arrow at 10. Flower Mound program at 10:15 has a lot of buzz and is impressive but it is too "Olympic Opening Ceremony" for me in style. Avon may take the whole thing, or possibly Carmel or BA. Unlike DCI, things tend to shuffle a lot on finals night. A couple years ago the corps going in to finals in 1st finished 3rd. DCI fans would FREAK OUT lol
  12. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    Cadets are doing a show based on race relations with an all black and white color scheme - and a bit of red shows up for a bit, then some yellow at the end It will be very controversial (this is a rumor) See San Antonio's Ronald Reagan HS Band 2017 program "Us and Them" as a similar "test" concept - Cadets arranger there as well... (again, this is a rumor)
  13. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    those band folks can EAT drum corps folks mostly just drink bottled water all day lol
  14. this proposal was made prior to "G7" it will happen - just a matter of time the dinos will hate it - and then it will grow the activity once again that the dinos nearly killed off
