  1. O.C. Standings 2017

    Oops I didn’t see the asterisk. My bad
  2. O.C. Standings 2017

    But are DCE scores the same as DCI?
  3. 2018 Uniform Thread

    It was a relatively traditional uniform though. They have shakos, bibbers, and non-spandex tops. I’m not saying traditional as in the Cadets West-point uniforms
  4. Now that the Blue Devils won DCI with a more traditional uniform, Wil we expect to see corps follow their lead? Or will the spandex uniforms continue to appear in DCI?
  5. Shows that you wish made finals

    One of the main things I learned was how to overcome adversity. Holding up a KING euphonium is pretty hard, especially if your primary is trumpet. What was worse was playing on it during rehearsal in Missouri where the real feel was 130 degrees. I wasn’t set up for success, but I managed to get through it. I imagine that experience would help me if I became drum major.
  6. Shows that you wish made finals

    I was born in January of 2002. But SW’s rendition of Legends that year brings me to tears every time
  7. Shows that you wish made finals

    Definitely 2000 Southwind
  8. Thoughts on Guardians 2017 season?

    I really enjoyed the show! I thought it was super original and my friends and I had a great time watching the Yeezy band together. It made my night hearing the closer
  9. DCI 2017 Photos?

    Thank you all for the great recommendations! All of these photographers are extremely talented and I'm grateful they can spread their talent to the drum corps community
  10. DCI 2017 Photos?

    Specific corps photos. SW does have a photographer but I was just curious if there were any other companies like Jolesch or corpsreps that took pictures
  11. What're some of the best places to get photos from the 2017 season? I already know about Jolesch and Corpsreps hasn't updated their website yet. I also know about Zach Ashcraft but I didn't know if I could find his photos anywhere other than Facebook. Any help is appreciated!
  12. 2017 DCA Finals

    I'm not sure if this has already been answered or if it's obvious, but are DCA corps scored on the same sheets as DCI? I'm no DCA expert so don't judge me
  13. Phantom Regiment 2018

    Also, I don't know if it was just me, but I got lost on what the theme was this year. Before the season started I thought the theme would have something to do about ghosts based on the title and the teasers but apparently it had something to do about our inner self (which you can tell I didn't see that at all)? Something about ghosts would've been much cooler
  14. Phantom Regiment 2018

    I'm not sure if Phantom acquired a new drill writer for the 2017 season, but it sure didn't feel very "Phantom" or "drum corps" when I watched it from the high cam. I understand that's some peoples' drill writing styles, but it didn't look very good imo. There were a ton of box sets that made it look pretty marching band-esque. For example, when they get to the slower 4/4 section right after the fast 3/4 section in the closer, they form a box, push said box back, make a curvy line, make more boxes, then end the show in a giant line (company front). I didn't get a drum corps vibe from the drill
  15. How About Some Common Ground?

    I'm not completely sure of how I view this. On one side, I do think that scores should judge the performance accurately and that if there was an A&E malfunction, it could ruin a moment. But on the other side, I can't help but feel sympathetic for corps going through something like that. Yes, A&E in a show is certainly risky, but not all accidents are their faults. For example, I was watching a show this past year after I had just performed where SCVC had no props due to their equipment trailer being destroyed (or something of that nature. Can't remember the details). It was pretty weird for members to stand around during the performance when they were obviously supposed to be behind props. Same thing with Bluecoats' electronic malfunction in 2016 semis. So I'm not completely sure whether or not judges' leniency towards this issue is a good or bad thing
