    As a parent of one of the 2014 members, watching the Finals performances in Indy, the result felt like a punch to the gut, related to those design changes.

    Clean marching and great playing.....that's what I want from Cadets....although a part of me wants to not see rolling around on the field; a cliche, IMHO.
  3. Nadolny seems pretty cool.

    Lots of room to grow for Cadets this year. Percussion book and execution is strong. Not sold on the new uniform, however.

    Cadets 2018

    Well, 2014 is the last time Cadets made the spite of the narration, stage and staging decisions. Of course, I'm biased because my son aged out on the snare line; but well executed Copland has staying power, IMHO.

    Cadets 2018

    Well, we know that Cadets' percussion is strong every year, but I'm digging the writing this year as a refreshing change. Lots of anticipation for a most interesting and positive season for Cadets and DCI.

    I think it had the Silver medal wrapped in it :-(

    2017 DCI A/V

    I downloaded a few of the Finals shows, primarily for viewing on computer and iPad....the video and audio quality are very good.....good enough that I am not going the Blu-Ray route this year.
  9. That 2014 Tilt show was one of the best, especially the ballad. It wears well. A bit ironic that not until the very last night of the season were Coats able to score above the Cadets, which was the last time the latter landed in the top 3.

    C2 brass and percussion both grabbed 2nd in their captions...impressive considering how strong Bucs were.

    2017 DCA Finals

    Kidsgrove was quite awesome....they basically gave a marching precision and drill lesson to a bunch of corps, and the quality of their brass sound was quite fine, IMHO.

    2017 DCA Finals

    Bucs scored 19.8 to C2's 19.7 in Percussion....C2 also took 2nd in Brass......props to Bucs and C2.

    C2 Percussion came within one tenth of repeating as high cool!

    2017 DCA Finals

    My son, who has teched C2 snares this year and last, tells me that C2 lost to Bucs in that caption by 0.1. A productive night!
