    Well, he might escape from Elba, so I would suggest St. Helena.

    I am sorry but I’m appalled, saddened, disheartened and dismayed by this snarky response to a real problem. Hate me if you want. MMs deserve more. But hey, you got two likes so far and maybe more after this. Good on you. And if I am wrong and this isn’t snark but a legitimate expansion of the petition to include all volunteers to be subjected to background checks, then I applaud your efforts to insure that our MMs have the most reasonable assurance they will be instructed and supported in a safe environment.

    When 27th performed for the opening ceremonies in the 1980 Olympics, the solution to valves freezing was antifreeze.

    Perhaps the petition will fall on deaf ears at DCI’s corporate offices. Perhaps the member corps will decide that each corps should have its own criteria as to who is a risky staff or admin member. That would be a shame. I believe there should be a universal policy to insure membership safety. As the OP has repeatedly stated, this is not directed at one corps, nor should it be. All corps need to have a clear and uniform policy to prevent their MMs from having to endure sexual harassment, or worse, from staff and admin. Why is that too much to ask? I believe this petition could start the conversation to achieve this end. Please don’t parse my intent to hop down frivolous bunny trails leading to oblivion. I want to understand why this goal is objectionable.

    Very curious here ... does anyone doubt this is a real problem?
  8. Sign the Petition

    I see the petition is up to 906 signatures. I signed it when it was in the 20s. I wasn’t paying strict attention but I am going say I was number 27.

    Thank you for recognizing the importance of the subject and for your vigilance in keeping the discussion civil.

    Sorry for responding to this so many hours after the initial post but it has been nagging at me all day. Is CYA really a good motivation for DCI to make a statement on this issue? How about it is the right thing to do. No convicted sexual predators or registered sexual offenders are allowed to instruct our youth. Can they have a second chance at redeeming their lives? Yes, of course ... but not with this youth activity.

    You beat me to it, Planets! I was about to post the same idea. I will also point out how incredibly brave the victim of this specific case was in coming forward to report to the authorities what she experienced. I am sure it was a hard experience having to relive the event over and over to police and prosecutors. She was traumatized and yet she stepped forward. The cold facts of the case don't report her motivation for stepping forward, but I can guess that at least part of the reason was so this person could not get away with this sort of behavior ever again and traumatize other young ladies in the future.

    A Cappy sponsorship could “fill a hole.”
  13. Any word on CD/DVD/Blu-ray products for 2017

    I was at LOS for finals and didn’t notice anything amiss with Coats’ mics.
  14. Shows that you wish made finals

    The older I get, the higher they place! In a couple of years, I will put them in the 1977 finals!
  15. Shows that you wish made finals

    1977 Oakland Crusaders - Number one drum line in DCI that year (a Tom Float line). The corps finished in 13th place.
  16. 2017 DCI survey

    Actually I buy the Super Three Pack each year as soon as they go on sale Thursday of Final's week. I am the card holder. Go figure.
  17. 2017 DCI survey

    Funny, I've attended finals since 2008 and didn't get a survey. I guess they figure I am hooked regardless.
  18. Bluecoats 2018-LETS GO BLOO

    This is a very stable and creative staff. I am sure they learned a couple of things this year ... they experimented with a guard and movement concept that pleased the crowds but not so much the judges. I am very confident they will come out with something new and amazing again next year that will please the fans ... and maybe even the judges, too!
  19. From what I can tell, Cavies jumped in VA and Bloo didn't and that tilted (no pun intended) the balance in Cavies favor.
  20. Hold your heads high Blooooo ...You were the crowd favorites all year and yours is the show I will wear out on my BluRay.
  21. 2017 World Championships Finals - Aug 12

    Wow, I feel so bad for Anna ... poor thing
  22. Keep your foot on your the gas Bloo! One more day! You have a great show this year; one that really gets the heart pumping! I am so lucky to have seen this show develop from the early days of ST until now and I couldn't be prouder of this corps! Have the time of your lives tonight!
  23. Schrodinger's corps! That's hilarious!
  24. I only saw BD for the first time last night but I thought they were hot. I don't see anyone beating them.
