  3. I am not sure I need to take the time to respond to this, however I will. Below is the ONE and ONLY message I have posted (and never deleted) in regard to this seasons scoring. It was posted to our Parent and Booster Facebook page in order to reflect and answer questions on why the scoring seems unfair to them and why our scoring system is different this season. It has no expletives (I have never used foul language in public) and is not a tirade of any magnitude. Those of you who wish to speak to me directly about your perceptions and clear untruths about any post I chose to place online can do so...I am happy to discuss them with you at 512.538.4023. I am an advocate for the National Linear scoring sheet and was one of many who wanted to see this happen. Nothing has blown up in anyones face and, to the topic of World Class aspiration...We get up everyday and do drum corps...you folks can determine what is World Class or not, we will just work to be the best we can if that is ok with you. If you can show me this "tirade" full of "expletives" then I would be happy to answer to that, however I am sure if I had done this, it would have been a bigger deal than a discussion on this board. I hope you are all enjoying your air-conditioned seats and online fun. Facebook Post: Scoring: Kinda sucks! With that said, I wanted to shed a little light on how scoring works because it is new this season. For the past 20 years Open Class has been judged on a curve and a paradigm, taking in to account shorter season, younger members, smaller budgets, etc. What would be a 60 today has been a 70 in the past. Myself and a few others worked very hard over the winter to push for all corps to be judged equally and on the same scale in order to both improve the quality of our class and help our kids understand their true potential. Having said that, the training of judges over the winter has come up short and we are still being judged as an "Open Class" instead of on a true scale. As with anything, a shift of this magnitude will take some time to adapt and catch up. Our program has really shocked the judging community this season and our time with the judges after the show has been productive. We hope things begin to even out as the season progresses. I hope this helps you guys understand a little bit about how and what has been going on out here in the Midwest. We are so anxious to get back to Texas....this has been an amazing journey so far but we are ready for some familiar faces. Chris Magonigal Executive Director Genesis DBC, Inc.
  4. Genesis DBC/Teatro Indoor Percussion is selling their set of Pearl CX Air Frame Carriers. These carriers are 6 months old and have been worn for 4 indoor percussion rehearsals and 4 indoor percussion shows. They were bought to replace our existing carriers and then we were able to sign a new drum deal so we are not in need of them any longer. 3 Snare carriers are still new in the box! 10 Snare - $180 each 5 Bass - $180 each 5 Tenor - $190 each This is below cost on each item and well below retail. http://www.steveweissmusic.com/product/pearl-cx-airframe-snare-drum-carrier/marching-snare-drum-carriers Please email magonigal@genesisdbc.org if interested and wish to purchase.
  5. Genesis DBC is pleased to announce that they have partnered with TAMA Percussion! "We are very much looking forward to this opportunity.", says Executive Director Chris Magonigal. "When we realized that this could become reality through the fundraising efforts of our program we all could not wait for this weekend to get here. Having seen the drums and talking with Tom Float each year at TMEA, I knew that these instruments were exactly what our percussion program were looking for. Being the first to use these instruments in the ranks of DCI is going to be an exciting adventure." Check out all the news from Genesis at www.genesisdbc.org
  6. In an exciting turn of events, Genesis DBC announces a new production plan for 2014.

For now we will hold off on the original concept for future use and we are all very excited about this new direction."
