    Looks like a Freemasons thing to me.
  2. The drum corps has changed its show style in recent years... I'm guessing in an effort to stay relevant in the recruiting game. The people they're looking to recruit are members of today's competition corps.... who by now, should be used to electronics and so forth. I wonder, though, if there is a fine line here with this particular corps... between what the members are comfortable with, and what the audience (which, with this corps, has tended to be more of a general "John and Jane Doe" audience at various venues) is comfortable with. Time will tell, I suppose.

    Those of us in the Baltimore area are finally getting a "taste of Boston" today and tomorrow. LOL. Our first big storm of the season. We've been very fortunate so far. Oh well... with the stronger March sun angle, whatever falls will be gone off the roads pretty quickly, and gone everywhere not long after... at least here south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

    Sad news indeed. Jim and Kris... two great folks. May she rest in peace.

    "Consultant" = still has input, without the day-to-day... uhhhh... stuff. That goes for any company/organization. Ahhh, to be a consultant. LOL. Good for Sean. Absolute top-shelf guy. Whenever I did a gig for YEA I knew I was in good hands with folks like him, Ray Schofield, Paul DeLiberto, Justin Heimbecker, etc. running the event. From what I recall, he was a freelance marketing guy and YEA was a client, years ago, before they hired him full time.

    Anyone planning on attending the DCA show run by YEA/C2 in Nazareth, PA, in July... make sure to stop by that new specialty-foods shop there: "Cheeses of Nazareth." I'm here all week, folks. Try the prime rib.

    One of the all-time best in the business. Great guy. Had a lot of fun working for him.
  10. All time shows: Troopers

    There used to be a full video online of the corps' 1975 show on YouTube, but now I can't find it. Can only find a vid of the opener that year. Don't know if this is a case of stuff being removed from the Web, or my search skills needing a tuneup. LOL.
  11. All time shows: Troopers

    Just watched the video of Troop's 2014 "America the Beautiful" closer. That was a great show.

    Is spinning and tossing a rifle part of the Manual of Arms? Not trying to sound snarky here... I honestly don't know.
  13. All time shows: Troopers

    Good point. Some of that equipment... it was like throwing a motorcycle.
  14. All time shows: Troopers

    Those were great!!! At least a few years, it was the drum major in the middle of the circle. Another cool move, for its era.... when they tossed the rifles over the outstretched flagpoles. Today, stuff like that is easy peasy. LOL.
  15. What you want for 2018

    They stuck their foot in the door last season... it would be nice to see them kick it down again!!!
