    Thanks be to God
  2. annual class A question

    CT In Class ‘A’? I don’t believe they have announced anything yet.
  3. kiltie Senior was inactive in 2017. 2018 remains to be seen.
  4. Cadets v.s. Boston Crusaders

    It would be foolish to expect anything other than your continued spewing of biased Cadet fake hype nonsense. Horse still dead, but beat it if you must.
  5. Cadets v.s. Boston Crusaders

    IMO Seems like the pool of talent isn’t as deep or as wide like it once was for the Cadets. From the looks of other corps camps, Cadets are not a top destination corps these days with high numbers of potential members showing up for auditions. I’m sure they will fill out with cuts from other corps and be a respectable top 12 corps. Hear good things about BAC and I expect them to be the beast of the East.
  6. DCA DCI how many DCA corps?

    CT has a solid relationship with other performance arts groups in Ohio. They do a great job of accepting kids with mixed levels of experience, some who were not offered a contact to a winter guard, percussion ensemble or World/Open corps. The staff helps them to learn, become better and mature. Come DCA finals weekend most would have never imagined the development. It’s a good model and it’s been working well.
  7. Cadets 2018

    The only corps I can think of stayed home.
  8. 2018 Rules proposals

    Not unless there are scores
  9. 2018 Rules proposals

    No scores in June? How about no shows in June. Most shows are not done in June anyway. Save your money don’t go to a June show.
  10. 2018 Rules proposals

    Every corps could use more singers
  11. 2018 Rules proposals

    I’m not convinced 15 corps is something I can tolerate. 12 is hard to endure. Cut it to ten and I’ll only miss two corps before I take my seat.
  12. 2018 Rules proposals

    They’re just throwing numbers around to give some a warm and fuzzy, but it doesn’t change placement. Ordinals saves everyone of the grief of learning you lost by five hundreds of a point.
  13. DCA DCI how many DCA corps?

    CT won DCA Class 'A' in 2017 without competing in a DCA show prior to prelims. In fact their highest DCI score was used for seeding in prelims (first corps on). CT provides DCA sheets to the contest director - judges understand the DCA sheets for evaluation. I have to disagree that DCI scores don't help DCA corps. CT embraces the opportunity to compete and perform in both DCI and DCA venues. CT will have four (4) DCI shows and two (2) DCA shows in 2018 prior to prelims. Summer Music Games 6/25, DCI Northern Kentucky 7/14, Legends Drum Corps Invitational 7/29, Soaring Sounds 39 7/30, and two DCA shows, Columbus Ohio and Atlanta Georgia with dates TBD. DCI venues provide CT members with the opportunity to perform with DCI's best World and Open Class corps, many are peers with CT members. In addition, excellent recruiting opportunities, large crowds of enthusiastic fans (very well attended), highest level of adjudication with remarkable feedback , and within reasonable geographic areas to Cincinnati at a minimum incurred cost to the CT organization. It's a win-win and the approach has paid-off in allowing CT to grow in talent and increased membership. IMO a good philosophy by a experienced administration. I'm looking forward to their staff and show announcement, and/or their plans for the up coming 2018 season. I believe we will all be surprised.
  14. Most of what I’ve had to endure the last few seasons has me believing that if I never see some of these corps again I won’t feel like I missed anything.
  15. Cadets 2018

    Don’t know how the activity survived this long without singers. Blue Devils show would have been a lot better with a singer.
  16. Cadets 2018

    The choir was such a success last season why not more singers again this season. Every corps needs a singer or two right.
  17. 2018 Prediction Thread

    No longer a concern for BAC.
  18. 2018 Prediction Thread

    Looks about right with respect to each tier. Cadets could be either a 3rd or 4th tier corps. Boston could be in that 1st tier, definitely a wild card.
  19. Just what drum corps needs, more layering that they can’t afford.
  20. Sign the Petition

    I know the corps I drove for did an extensive background check, and did so each season I volunteered. However I don’t know what other corps do. Let me add that the cost for these background checks were paid for by the volunteer applicant.
  21. Sign the Petition

    Well you can hear the crickets after requesting the document. Some amazing stories being told on Reddit. Not a one mentions a DCI policy enforcement.
  22. Sign the Petition

    Has anyone actually seen, read or have a copy of this so called DCI policy, or is it tucked away in one of Al Capone’s faults to be discovered at a later date?
