  1. Totally agree ... as a dad of a marching member, it kills me to not be there. But the pics totally help!
  2. I love that ... every corps deserves a standing ovation!
  3. I don't think Cofeve has ever beat Vanguard
  4. Guess what? It rained so no sneak preview of the show. 2 weeks and 3 days until the FloMarching broadcast from their training site.
  5. Wow ... that video has me excited. I'm driving through Iowa this weekend and I'm going to stop in Forest City for ensemble practice on Saturday night. Can't wait to see how the show is coming together. Please don't rain, please don't rain, please don't rain.
  6. Last year was my transition year ... and the biggest surprise was how I attended contests. As a fan, my butt was in the seat for every corps. As a parent, I'm heading out to the lot as soon as my kid is done performing. Of course, this wasn't true at finals :). The activity became much more like what I was used to with my kids being in marching band. In a way, it made me appreciate the activity more. As a fan, I almost thought of the corps members as "professionals" but now I see them for who they are. I now make it a point to give every corps a standing ovation since I really understand all the work that goes into it. Enjoy your first year as a DCI parent ... it was a dream come true of me (and I guess my child) and I can't wait for "our" sophomore year.
  7. Today we are officially over the hump ... finals was 157 days ago and the premier show in Indianapolis is in 156 days. Its all down hill from here.
  8. Blue Stars banquet is on Sunday after finals ... this year it was in Plainfield (west of the Indianapolis airport).
  9. "Played by the Cadets and Bugle Corps" ... guess you don't need those drums for a drum corps. Will NBC always mess up their marching ensemble announcements?
  10. Dan also says no missile like objects but that never stops us
  11. My daughter gave me her dirty laundry last night (huge laundry bag) and I took it in the stadium and no one even looked twice at me ... I haven't seen any security yet.

  13. Sunday morning, after the show at the Georgia Dome, I went for a walk in downtown Atlanta ... and the Hard Rock Cafe was blasting Coldplay's "Fix You" out onto the street. Now I can't get it out of my mind ... but the Troopers version of course :)
  14. Actually, they met at Hamilton on June 27 with the Blue Stars outpacing Crossmen by 1.3 points ... but a lot has changed since then so tonight should be interesting.
  15. The rest of the performances have been canceled due to weather.
