    Me as well! Without giving away too much (that's not the vanguard way!) would be curious to hear from anyone who has sat in on rehearsal. If you could describe the show using only an adjective or two, please share. Just curious to get a feel for the vibe!

    Very cool theme! I posted last year about hoping to get more Peter Graham music on the field so I'm super excited to see they'll be playing more (and Metropolis 1927 is my favorite piece of his!). This is gonna be a great summer!

    I love SCV but I gotta say dragging out their announcement has gotten annoying. I’m sure they’re just trying to build up interest/hype but feel like they’ve overdone it.

    Or you’re doing the victory performance.

    Guess we'll be waiting another day - no biggie but c'mon SCV! Last to announce show = last to perform on finals night?!

    Today’s the day of the big reveal (it’s Friday where I am)! Excited to see what they’ll be doing.

    Word has it they’re announcing their show next Friday (May 18). T minus 7 days and counting!

    I’m an unabashed Santa Clara fan, but anyone else feeling like there’s way too little excitement among the drum corps community regarding Gaines writing the drill for this summer’s SCV program?! That’s nothing to take away from the brilliance of Pete Weber but seriously people! I know some other topics have been the focus this offseason, but I think I it’s time to start getting excited about the upcoming summer for this corps ! Yes, we need a show announcement to have something more to talk about but with the staff they’ve amassed and upward trend they’ve been on for the last 5 or 6 years this is as good a chance as they’ve had to win the championship in 20 years in my opinion. Can’t wait to hear what they’ll be doing this summer and here’s to more hype for SCV!

    Good stuff! Interesting to hear the music is aggressive - last year definitely had that vibe (especially so after 2016) so will be interesting to see how the shows compare. I heard from a staffer that they will announce the show 2 weeks from today. The countdown begins!!
  10. Dang, I was going to excitedly share my little hack for forcing it to display the whole schedule (https://www.dci.org/events?limit=115&page=1&viewMode=list&sort=startDate)...but that URL hack (changing limit=10 to limit=115) appears to no longer work. Now it auto-reloads with the normal 10 items per page. Boo!!
  11. Like being asked to pick one's favorite child...not fair! Top 5: 1989 2004 1999 1998 1987 Too many honorable mentions (1988, 2013, 2009, 2016, 2002, 2000, 2012, 1997...I could keep going on and on) Least fave: 1995
  12. For those interested in viewing the full 2018 schedule on the new DCI site without having to go through 12 separate pages, here are two URLs to use: https://www.dci.org/events?limit=115&page=1&viewMode=list&sort=startDate (for the list style display) https://www.dci.org/events?limit=115&page=1&viewMode=grid&sort=startDate (for the grid style display)
  13. I believe it actually is a TOC show. They had one there this past summer with great attendance, so it's not surprising to see it there again. Wise locale for a show given the success of the Broken Arrow Band.
  14. Agreed - hope some adjustments are made as it does require too many page views. I too miss being able to filter specific corps. Being able to filter by location is nice...though the states aren't in alphabetical order.
  15. Doh...sorry about that!! I'm finding the layout of the schedule kinda clunky to navigate. Probably just a newness thing but kind of miss being able to see more listed on a page.
