    We already know that Cadets are doing Bernstein again though
  2. Staff Merry-go-round 2018 Edition

    I can confirm the rumor about them leaving for Cadets is 100% not true. Taking your post with a grain of salt, other destinations are still open.

    I'll take any and all rumors in my inbox pls and thx
  4. So when's the new closer coming?
  5. I'm shocked that no one's directly mentioned the final turnaround at the end of the ballad. Awesome effect imo. Doesn't take away from the idea of doing the ballad the way they want to, while still giving the audience what it deserves.
  6. So I think at this point it'd be a safe bet (not a guarantee) to say that Blue Devils and Vanguard will be 1 and 2, with the order to be decided. Blue Devils are still undefeated, if I'm not mistaken, but they had their closest gap last night with Vanguard being back only .1 points. A lot of people are wondering if Vanguard will be able to "pull the upset" and win gold, but just for the sake of conversation, let's say that Vanguard sweeps BD from now til Championships, meaning they ride first into that weekend. Would winning gold still be considered an upset over BD? Is BD earned the point to where any time anyone other than them wins gold, it's considered an upset?

    Needs more sequin on the gold
  8. Imo, all groups in the top 5 (having Boston ahead of Cavaliers in my top 5) have winning shows. It's really gonna come down to night by night performance, who peaks at the right time, and who's keeping the audience's attention the most on each and every night. I honestly wouldn't be shocked to see any placement in that top 5, they're all so dang good and so well designed.
  9. Video and Drum Corps

    I know of multiple corps that do it over preseason having their members look at end-of-weekend runs and look for specific things while they're not together between camps, but I don't know how much it's utilized on tour.
  10. So what are we going to do about it?

    Well in that case, instead of surveying DCP, which is largely made up of people old enough to have kids in the activity (or older), shouldn't we be surveying the youth that DCI exists to serve? Everything I've seen shows that the vast majority of members, and audience members of the member age, approve. When members stop joining or spectators stop buying tickets because of it, then it's too big of a problem.
  11. Amping the brass line

    I think that if the audio/engineering team is good enough to do it, it would work. Bluecoats already implement it a lot, Vanguard implements it with the small ensemble, and really it's more prevalent than people realize. If you can make it so it doesn't blatantly stick out, and everything meshes together well, hey, I'm all for having damaged ears after 12 minutes.
  12. Cadets 2017

    Wouldn't it be cool if Cadets stayed with the religious topic but moved in a different direction for their 2018 program and did an exorcist type show? That'd be really cool
