  1. I'm like - what happened to Mike Stevens? Out of the loop I guess.
  2. Really fun thread. One of the things that made BD's 2017 show SO spectacular is the beginning nod to old school drum corps. It worked REALLY well and was as energetic and exciting an opening as I can remember in a show since I became a fan in 2010. But then BD contrasted THAT opening drill with all that came later in the activity and brilliantly showed why drum corps is and will always be an evolving activity. In other words, the OP's idea is really an apples to oranges kind of comparison. But that doesn't mean that older styles can't be tastefully injected into current shows. It is always appreciated!
  3. If the website says it, then it is solid. In the past, that venue hasn't always been available but looks like it is in the books. Good luck to you with Scades. I've really enjoyed their shows from the past few years.
  4. Only one exclamatory word comes to mind: YOWZA!!!!!!! As a yearly Drums of Fire patron myself, I concur that this is an impressive field of corps!!!!! Hopefully they can get the Hillsboro stadium again for this lineup - clearly the best ever for this show - that I know of, anyway. I'm already wondering how in heck I'll get to all the rehearsals...
  5. Open to World Class

    The show Legends fielded this year absolutely blew me away. It was easily my favorite open class show, and I'd watch it again over many WC shows. But what happened midseason reminds us all of the harsh reality that It takes more than just a passionate director, BOD, talented design team and dedicated MMs to make an organization that can stand up to the incredible financial and logistical demands of being a DCI corps of any kind, let alone a WC corps. I hope Legends makes it to WC. I really do. I'm already a huge fan. If/when they do, I think they'll rise like cream rises. Let's hope they can tend to their fiscal challenges!
  6. Just saw this in my email and I knew there would be a thread already started. I am so happy about this!!! Congrats to Music City! This is GOOD for the activity!
  7. Seattle Cascades 2018

    Yeah interesting comparison... prelims to semis vs. semis to finals. Same tendency.
  8. Seattle Cascades 2018

    You know I really did too. I thought they edged out the Spartans. It was close though, for sure. In the final ranking, Seattle Cascades DID beat out the Spartans.
  9. FloMarching makes a funny

    OMG that is as sarcastically witty as anything on DCP. Love it. I have a new respect for Flo.
  10. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    I noticed that too. Guard was coming along with the best ever in 2017. They fielded their strongest overall visual product ever too IMO, cleanest for sure.

    He spent all of one season and did such a great job. Sad to see him go.
  12. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    I know! I just read his bio on the OC website. What's up with that?
  13. 2017 DCI survey

    Sounds like the story of my life!
  14. 2017 DCI survey

    Last time I was in Indy was 2014 and I remember Ram but couldn't tell you the other places I ate. Actually all I did at Ram was get growlers of beer...lol. I do remember eating multiple times at an Italian restaurant near Ram. But it doesn't matter because I didn't receive this apparently very uppity survey either. Would be happy to fill one out though. Seems to me DCI would be well served to hear from not only current championships ticket holders but recent past ones as well.
  15. Whether or not it is relatable to drum corps, I will definitely watch it just because I'm interested. Thanks OP for bringing it to my attention.
