    Looks like the judge saw it as the hardest to pull off and thought they didn't pull it off well comparatively. Better to have 5 in achievement and 1 in rep than the other way around. It's room to work with for Bluecoats. Note they also got 4th in brass and the top 4 are really close in that caption and the pendulum can swing all around in that regard. 5th in percussion...not ideal but workable.

    Oh come on I was kidding. :) I'd love to see SCV get their first in 19 years. They are definitely in the driver's seat!

    Yes! I was feeling good about my top 6 and I had these folks 7-10 have to see how the order shakes out.
  7. See that's just it. I said being all male makes the Cavaliers unique and I am NOT pushing for them to change. It would affect their unique identity. You or someone else said or implied that young women aren't the ones talking about this it's just derranged adults. I cited that when I was an age eligible female I was disappointed (not enraged, victimized, or demanding a change, just disappointed) that the best corps was all male. I would think there are several factors as to why it's not getting commented on by young ladies now has something to do with one of these three factors 1. There are few women that post on these boards let alone women that are age eligible to (most of which are probably touring and not lurking on DCP). 2. The Cavaliers are being competitive again but it's not like they won 5/7 years recently and are dominant. 3. When someone posts an honest but unpopular thought on these boards they get flamed. I am not about to go protest or March or push for a big change in the Cavaliers. I have no fight against them but I think a few people on this board are getting a little bit too bent out of shape thatother posters pointed out that they think the gender discrimination practiced by the Cavaliers is unfair and they are using pretty ridiculous points to their argument that are just digging a deeper hole. PS I don't think the Cavaliers are losers...or that any other corps that doesn't win for that matter. If you read any of my other posts I am usually trying to find out grwatpmentd in other shows...and I travel to semifinals so that I can see all of the top 25...of which I often have favorites outside of the top 12.
  8. Didn't say that you did. I was just posting my opinion... which I am getting debated on. I like the Cavaliers show and wish them the best this year.
  9. I will say this. I was age eligible to March from roughly 01-06... At the time the Cavaliers were on top of the world and I felt disappointed that some of the greatest musicians and Marchers that I was surrounded by in college could not be part of the best group just because we are girls..but I wasn't going to gripe about it because hey that's the way it is. Now, while the Cavaliers are not back on top of the world they are competitive. My setiments are now that being all male makes them unique (I know Madison but the Cavaliers and Madison are so different). But if the Cavaliers do reign supreme again it would be pretty heartbreaking to tell a young lady that she can't join the best group just because she is a girl "Sorry Susie you can't be part of the best group because you are a girl but Benny that's 3 chairs below you would be a perfect fit... Don't worry though there are 22 other fine organizations you can be a part of Life just isn't fair I guess".I guess what I am saying is you don't hear a lot of young ladies complaining because they aren't on top so it doesn't matter as much. Personally and morally I don't think it's any governing body's place to make the Cavaliers or Madison allow women in because I believe in the rights of a private organization to make their own decisions but I also think that all of you on here argueing about social justice and politics need to realize that it can and does affect people.
  10. Just nit picking but if a venue doesn't allow patrons to BYOB (in this case water) don't they have to provide cups of water for free? Or does that vary state by state? Haha rehearsal attire.
  11. Yes. I was a bit cryptic in my post over lunch and had a very busy work afternoon...checked my phone and found a bit of a mess. Thanks for clearing that up Cappy. I really appreciate it. By the way I'm a girl. :)
  12. I think the supportive message is great. I am also not commenting on what they should or shouldn't be doing. I just think it's somewhat contradictory to be pro LGBT when say lesbians aren't allowed in the corps. Not saying it's right or wrong just confusing. Super busy at work so I can clarify more later.
  13. Read your post and knew you were going to be...well let's say heavily debated. My thoughts the whole season have been- it's great for the Cavaliers to put a pro LGBT message at the end of their show...but they are still being exclusive by not allowing many members of the LGBT community to join. It's contradictory to me and I will just leave it at that. I don't want to debate about whether they should allow females to be part of the organization. It's beating a dead horse. I think they should be allowed to do whatever they want in regards to exclusion criterion for membership anyway.
