  1. The future of the Cadets

    These are all theories that I’ve been hearing not from DCP but from people who are involved in the marching arts.
  2. Hi everyone, After the recent events regarding the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps, I have come to wonder what the future will be for the corps. I personally will say that the Cadets are an amazing corps and always put on a fun, entertaining show. However, now that the corps reputation has been badly damaged, I am fearing the worst. Many people who I have spoken to have said that people will not want to march Cadets because of everything that has happened. People are thinking that they don’t want to be part of a corps with a history of sexual harassment and assault. As a result of this, some people are thinking that the corps will eventually die out because no one would want to march there. I know this whole thing is a theory; however, there are lots of people who share and believe in these theories. Would you allow yourself, your kids, or your friends to march in the Cadets? Please anwser in the poll provided.
  3. ENCORPS, NJ's newest Drum Corps

    Congrats to you guys for founding a new corps. This will equate to more musical and educational experiences for kids. Best of Luck and I hope to see you guys in open class in 2019.
  4. Hi everyone, This is episode 7 of my match up series. In this episode, we will be looking at the Colts and The Academy. In 2017, both corps experienced changes. New uniforms, new staff, etc. Both corps were neck and neck with eachother. This match up should be very interesting to watch in the 2018. Now it time for you to vote. Who do you think will score and finish higher next season? Vote and well will find out.

    I was doing some research and I made an astonsihing discovery. There are new corps planning on joining DCI's open class, and a LOT of them. Here is a list of the corps: Vessel Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2018 - Orange County, CA https://www.vesseldrumcorps.org Armada Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2018 - Boise, ID http://www.armadacorps.org *Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2019 - Albuquerque, NM https://arsenalperformingarts.org Encorps Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2019 - Brunswick, NJ http://jamwithencorps.org Rivermen Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2019 - Portland, OR https://oregonpaa.weebly.com/therivermen.html Appalachian Sound Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2019 - Atlanta, GA http://mayde-inc.org/appalachiansound/ Appalachian Gold Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2019 - Summersville, WV https://www.appalachiangold.org Hub City Guardians Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2019 - Houston, TX https://www.hubcityguardians.org Lone Star Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2019 - Fort Worth, TX http://www.lonestardbc.org Storm Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2020 - Terre Haute, IN http://indianastorm.net Florida Xpress Drum and Bugle Corps - DCI Open Class 2020 - Hawthorne, FL http://www.thefloridaxpress.org/drum--bugle-corps.html All these corps are going to contribute to the growth of DCI. As of right now, from what I know, these corps are determined to enter open class by the years that they have set. If these 11 corps are successful in joining DCI's open class, there will be a total of 57 corps competing in DCI competitions by 2020. I have listed all the corps websites and I urge you all to visit them and learn more about the organizations that will be a part of drum corps future! If you know any other organizations that are planning on joining DCI's Open Class within the next 3 years, please post them below and I will add them to the list above! *Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps believes that maybe World Class has room in it for another corps from the Southwest. : ) This is a post that I did earlier but if these Corps make it into Open Class in the years listed, then it would be okay for 15 corps at finals.

    I think the biggest ones that would change dci forever are 15 corps at finals, ordinals, and no scoring before July 1st. In my opinion, 15 corps at finals can’t be undone. It’s one of those things where once it happens it’s almost impossible to go back to the way that it was before. If they even mention going back to only 12 corps in finals, the entire drum corps community would blow up. They would think that it’s not fair to the corps who made finals in spots 13 - 15 the previous year. For ordinal scoring only, that is another can’t come back from situation. If ordinals scoring goes into effect, then we drum corps fans will never hear scores of 99.65 ever again. It will be hidden from us. And if they try to make any changes from that, there will be debates about how dci is judging in general. For example, if they decide to allow people to see the scores later in future but still do placements by ordinal rankings, then there will be massive debate about how the judging isn’t fair amongst drum corps fans. Lastly, for the no scores before July 1st, that one can lead to some serious damage towards the corps. People in the stands go to drum corps shows to watch the competition. There are a lot shows before July 1st and if the proposal passes, then all those shows before July 1st become exhibition shows. While that isn’t bad, it can damage the corps because people want to see competition. People aren’t going to want to pay money to see the same show in exhibition for a week. As a result, those early shows will lose income and the corps would suffer because they wouldn’t be making money off the people who normally come to those shows. Again these are just my opinions.
