  2. DCI Design Staff's Other Work

    Tulsa Union: Wayne Downey arranges the winds, Jon Vanderkolff writes the drill, and Michael Raiford designs the unis and other color aspects. I think they use a couple DCI names for guard/body design, but I can't remember who. Owasso: Richard Hinshaw writes the drill and Michael Rosales designs the guard. Broken Arrow: Leon May writes the drill, and I assume Don Hill still arranges the winds (as he judged the BA invitational contest this year).
  3. Phantom Regiment 2018

    It has been argued on here that Regiment has a habit of choosing music that is already quite familiar (either because pieces have been played before or are standards in the classical music literature) and hasn't tried to pursue new avenues.
  4. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    If that's indeed true, that's too bad for the Cadets. Hopkins was really excited about the possibility of working with the NY Phil, and that would've been a great opportunity for the students.
  5. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    How was Union tonight?
  6. BOA Finals - Indy - Nov 11

    One of the drivers of that program is now coordinating things at the Academy.
  7. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    This is the instant GE that DCI has been longing for!
  8. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    That's what I'm thinking with St. Patrick - hand-to-hand combat to drive the snakes out of Ireland?
  9. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    a St. Patrick theme?
  10. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    While I like the direction SCV is heading in now, I wish he would've stuck with SCV (or they would've stuck with him, however that worked) for a little longer.
  11. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    Abandonment of higher education (a public good) by state legislators. But if some of the opinions I've seen on here (e.g., useless undergraduate degrees) are any indication, perhaps I shouldn't be surprised that state legislators don't see education not as an individual privilege but a public good. And I'll suggest again to not equate causation with spurious correlation. Indeed, and my apologies for perpetuating this conversation. We should instead be talking about getting braces or something.

    Ah, I've indeed heard of that institution, just not by its shortened name, I guess. Did several faculty recently leave Hopkins for Boston (either College or University)??
  13. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    This is not correct. Don't apply causation to some sort of spurious correlation. Increases in financial aid have gone hand-in-hand with decreases in state funding for public schools. I can't speak for private schools (e.g., I've never heard of Hopkins University/College, though I'd be suspicious of how it handles money given the name... here's guessing it spends a lot of money on gaudy tarps). Also, cost of doing business (e.g., healthcare for employees) has increased exponentially over that time. This is a pretty absurd statement.
  14. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    This is an extremely slanted connection of dots. You're also referring to a time when state schools were actually supported by states.
  15. https://www.drumcorpseurope.org/newsitem.php?id=15271&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook I recently saw where one of the UK groups named several BD staff as it's designers. Any idea how this affects the several talented groups in Europe?
