  1. Quitest in DeKalb as well.
  2. I've thought the same thing about the low brass this year. Definitely not as strong as PR usually is. It would be awesome if they could get a professional like Robert Nunez, Regiment alum. He the the principal tuba players for the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in NOLA and works with the Stars low brass. He's got the reputation of being an amazing teacher.
  3. PR is management issue and they don't have deep pockets. They have so many wealthy alumni that would donate big time if they hadn't been offended or turned away in the past. It's too bad. At least they are finally trying to get alumni involved, but it may be too late. Stability now!
  4. You parents have it good these days with cell phones. We would go on tour for weeks and have no contact with home. If you wanted to call home on a free day, you'd have to wait in the loooong line for a pay phone!
  5. He was a good sport! "Back in the day", we didn't have air mattresses and slept on the gym floor for years!
  6. When I marched PR in the 80's, we knew how to play Madison's "You'll Never Walk Alone". It was a good song to practice and we played it with them a few times. I would imagine it's the same for SCV.

  8. THIS would be a wonderful way to show your love for the corps: http://regiment.org/can-you-make-dinner-for-us-tonight/ Let's flood them with funds to show our love and give a boost to the staff, volunteers and marching members.
  9. I know that The Academy has sent volunteers to help as needed 'on the ground'. Bless them! PR has a "Phans for Food" (or something like that) program where you can donate any amount of money to help with their meals. That is one way to help. I'm sure the link is on their web site. The only other thought I have is that if they are anywhere near you on their tour, take coolers of cold Gatorade for breaks. Those are always welcome!
  10. One too many beers tonight! ;p
  11. My bad! Was thinking of Bloo!
  12. Oops! My head is messed up!
  13. That's actually good to hear. Not that other can't comment. I just wonder sometimes. Thanks for letting me know.
  14. I think you didn't understand my main message in that quote. My point was that I wonder what percentage have marched any corps before, yet are making unfounded statements and criticisms. It's tiring to read. How about just support the activity with positive comments. The results will take care of themselves. Make sense?
  15. Exactly why I only visit DCP every once in a while. Just a bunch of folks that may never have even marched in a top 12 corps giving their opinions when it really doesn't matter. The alums have set the stage in history and the kids out there now are the ones doing the work. Let the members enjoy their summer, the chips fall where they may, and just enjoy the shows. Gee Whiz!
