    Best Pacific Crest show since the Vegas show (2007?).

    I was about to write that exact same thing.

    Did Pio fill their brass spots, or did they shrink their drill?
  4. "Somebody" here (thanks for the quote!). I don't think SCV's hornline success is that surprising, although it is very impressive. It was pretty clear ever since Chip Crotts came onboard in 2016 that they were headed in the right direction. It has sure been fun to watch the progression, hasn't it?
  5. In 2004 in Denver, we were issued seats that put us behind one of the camera bays. We went to the ticket office, and they gave us better tickets. Don't know if that could happen at your show, but might be worth a shot.

    Somebody is in the wrong show thread?

    Something that I haven't heard mentioned yet is that the lighting may be having a "deadening" effect on the excitement level. There doesn't seem to be any lighting directly to the center of the field. I have seen this happen at other HS stadiums - notably Pasco, WA a couple of weeks ago.

    They also need the frames to be painted a different color. On high cam, they look like Chinese tapestries.

    Yes, if they bring the visual up to the level of their music, they might have something there.

  11. When was the last time prior to this season that SCV beat BD in brass?

    The wife and I (Cheryl and Kyle) will be in Section 341 Row 1 - all three days. Probably wearing SCV gear.

    Thanks for that. I guess I was guilty of some old-school thought there Looking at their performance at DATR last night, the performance from start to finish was just over 12:30 - leaving only less than 4:30 for getting on, set-up, leaving. I wonder if that is a concern for them, what with all the complexity of the electronic set-up.
