  1. I'm surprised (or maybe not surprised) that they don't have someone from DCI consulting on which camera shots to use during the broadcast. By now they should have figured out which parts warrant a close-up. What bothers me even more is that they are broadcasting things that are not supposed to be seen by the audience. For example, I saw a great shot of the Bluecoats brass hiding beneath their stage prop..
  2. Show is here.. College Blvd Activity Center11031 S. Valley PkwyOlathe, KS
  3. I'm guessing BD opted for the extra rehearsal day. With the exception of BD, the lineup tonight is the same as tomorrow at the Rose Bowl..
  4. I noticed that Phantom has seven high microphones evenly spaced along the front sideline (from the side one 20 yard line to the side two 20). Is this to amplify the entire horn line?
  5. The drill is obviously a Weber/Gaines collaboration. I see both of their styles blended here.
  6. SCV seems to be quite a wild card. Nobody seems to know much about them. Do you know something the rest of us don't?
  7. I don't care about what a corps decides to call their show. Ultimately, if I enjoy the music and the show is well designed and well executed, the title is irrelevant. I enjoyed drum corps long before they felt it necessary to name their shows.
  8. They do have to contend with the high elevation rehearsals in Weed though..
  9. The California corps seem to be having better spring training weather than many of the corps out east, if that makes any difference..
  10. I'd put Pacific Crest in the Legends/SCVC range. Pretty reasonable list overall, but I would flip a few positions..
  11. Anyone go to the SCV birthday dinner on Saturday? Anyting to report without giving away any secrets?
  12. You may find that different volunteer jobs will provide very different experiences. Working a food truck is the hardest job, in my opinon, but it is where most corps need the most help. If you help with selling coprs merchandise, you will spend less time with the corps, and more time at the show venues.
  13. I would think any 'rehashing' this year will probably be done by their alumni corps.
  14. I heard a rumor that there are color guard costume changes to add to the show. Don't know anything about music changes, but my guess is that there's going to be a different ending.
  15. Agreed. Does this help them or hurt them competitively (or neutral)?
