  1. All time shows: the Cavaliers

    And the young lady featured in the "Carmen Project" show, 2000s.
  2. That last reason is three great reasons!!!

    Bottom line... we were looking at last year's list. LOL
  4. Man.... that sucks. Very good question from the OP... how will it affect these corps? FYI, it was Kidsgrove Scouts from the UK that added the BD people to its staff.

    Oops...
  6. C2 '18

    Lots of names held over from last year, it looks like, unless I'm mistaken here. Continuity is a good thing.
  7. Believe me... I'm ready for anything. LOL
  8. Go West Chester!!! Next weekend Brenda's participating for the first time with the alumni band, which does some stuff with the full band for Homecoming. Can't wait... that WCU band is awesome. I might be a roadie for a day. LOL.

    The line I bolded... that seems to be a common theme for them for the last three seasons. Over-tinkering, perhaps over-thinking at times. The 2011 show... a clearly-communicated concept, executed at a high level... classic Cadets, and a well-deserved victory. The last few seasons, not as much... my opinion, of course.

    Man... for the play it's getting, I should have trademarked that #### response!!!

    $$$$. It certainly plays a role. As the great motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said: "Money isn't the most important thing in life, but it's reasonably close to oxygen on the 'gotta have it' scale."

    "Stream of consciousness" elevated to an art form. LOL
  13. Madison Scouts 2018

    I wish we could drive right past the Winters Park part and pull into Springsfield. LOL.
  14. Saw a FB post from Bobby Menear that Tom McShane passed away in June. May he rest in peace. A legendary character, and that's putting it mildly. Larger than life.
  15. Heh... in 1978, Jack Meehan came East to work with us (Sunrisers) after the DCI season was done, leading up to DCA championships. One rehearsal, he told us in the French horn line that he needed us to play louder in a couple of spots. Of course, telling our Frenchie line to "play louder" was like throwing raw meat to the lions.
