  1. It may be a totally different prop, but it definitely brings a "been there done that" aspect to the show. The spinning compass is neat, though

    No sir, I was just posting The Cadets' FB page. If I were filming, I would attempt not pan so fast as it makes my eyes cringe. =) But, I'm grateful that it's posted at all.

    They fixed the site quick, but I was super confused for a bit. Great scoring and slowly closing the gap to Bloo, and working on taking individual captions.
  4. I see it this way - attendance yesterday was a few things: Price, low number of top corps and the heat. I know a few people who didn't want to go due to the fact that it was "just Bloo and Cadets". Obviously, the other corps were enjoyable, but if this ticket is essentially the same price as a night of DCI East, that's a bit much. Overall, YEA! could do a better job integrating with the Allentown area (if it were to stay, which I know is not what a lot of people want, but it is what it is). There are tons of excellent band programs around here and reaching out into the community could foster that relationship and boost attendance with parents. I'm not sure how much 'face time' the Cadets get in Allentown anymore, I know 5 or 6 years ago, they did to some community events in Allentown, but that seems to have fallen off the radar.

    Cut out most of the vocals, leave the "I think therefore I am" for a tie in and lose half the props as it seems so cluttered. It's not one of my favorites this year, for a change.

    A link to an interview with Scott wasposted on Jaccii Farris' FB page(Allentown Reporter (but not her interview)) https://www.facebook.com/DocujournalistJacciiFarris/?hc_ref=ARSi-5noJbIXoTyoAubTWa8NE0Ij4LfV4cmVAcMj_jyBszTUndJqPbYz3k7rtgCNWjE&fref=nf "Check out this exclusive interview with the new Director of the Allentown Cadets Scott Litzenberg @CRE8Rcnfdntl #cadets #drumcorpshttps://t.co/JXu7aRSdix"
  7. I think that is a very poorly formed sentence. But, I would also believe that the reporter has more corps out there that are affected. It may be just the process of getting validation and lining up facts. Quite honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if reporters are perusing these sites for leads, so they should have information on paths to follow just by offhand comments that may or may not be deleted.

    Eventually, when it's finally public and the teasing commentary is passed. =)

    Here is the new schedule: https://www.dci.org/events?corpId=001j000000I6KFgAAN&limit=-1&viewMode=print&sort=startDate
  12. I figure it's a prudent move. I will admit to wondering how they were going to fund it before all of this even happened.
  13. Wow, that is comprehensive and well thought out.
  14. That was an unfortunate statement by the now ex-Board of Directors, and was tone deaf and astoundingly inept. The more recent communication by the new BOD, in conjunction with a hired PR firm, is much better. I do not think that anyone here thinks that their pain matches the pain of the victims. It cannot. However, there can be many stages of grief over many aspects of this - each victim, the sheer number of victims, and then how it affects the organization as a whole, the marching members, then the community at large. It's normal and it's natural. And I think in a very vast majority, those who have posted here are aware of this.
