  1. Let’s look at the other side of the coin. Does anybody think World Class should have a minimum number of marchers? If I remember correctly, Open Class has a minimum.
  2. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    Dragons. It’s got to be dragons. Notice the flame emojis.
  3. Madison Scouts 2018

    Did you even read the article? None of your statements were evident in what I read about the gentleman concerned, Payton McGarry.
  4. Madison Scouts 2018

    It's in the article. There's an explanation on how the Blue Stars addressed it.
  5. Historical Age Out Stats

    I think Shadow has an age limit that is lower than DCI's. It probably stems from them still being strongly tied to the local school district. Yep, 14-18.
  6. Cadets 2018

    If the brass ensembles are getting the same instruction at the satellite camps, molding the two ensembles shouldn't be a problem (in theory).
  7. Shows that you wish made finals

    2012 Blue Stars.

    Noooooo! Good pickup for Regiment but I was hoping for more great things developing at BK. I guess we have to see who BK brings on.
  9. Seattle Cascades 2018

    If they respond by improving visuals (guard especially) I see them back in semis. Have a fantastic audition. Cascades have put out some fun, original programs. I'm particularly impressed with their ability to mash up two divergent tunes and make it work. It's becoming one of their signatures.
  10. Spirit of Atlanta 2017

    There's some SoA chatter on the staff thread but I didn't want to hijack it. While so many people were busy singing the praises of BAC and Mandarins, I feel SoA flew under the radar. They were my surprise of the season. I think they took some big risks in modernizing and to me it paid off. Even though it was a new look and sound, I still got a Spirit vibe. Could have done withou the props, but ya can't have everything. Hope they continue in the same vein in 2018.
  11. Oops! I misread the standings chart in the open class forum. They were in 7th place in the standings as of 7/15. My apologies.
  12. Considering their 2017 season ended on July 15, I would guess World Class isn't even on their radar right now. Interestingly enough, the score the received that day would have landed them around 7th place in Open Class finals. Not too shabby.
  13. From what I recall, they lost a major sponsor, freaked out but then worked things out within a couple months. I'm assuming they've found new revenue streams. Can anyone confirm? Edit I don't think it had anything to do with overwhelming debt but I could be wrong.

    I like to see corps nurturing and promoting talent from within.
