  4. Decorum Between Groups at a show...

    Well my group of people broke up years ago now so being I am flying solo at almost every show I go to, I always enjoying engaging with folks sitting nearby. I gage their interest in chatting and if they don't mind we'll Chat. I enjoyed chatting with so many different folks over the years :)

  9. The only thing is, what do you do/think if the staffs reactions to their show interferes with "your"ability to enjoy the show? That is issue/concern. A lot of staffs are fine but others are not and that's why it's important to point it out and address it. Nobody wants or expects the staff to sit there with their hands folded politely. It is the excessive clapping and constant cheering that is a problem. If some staffs can be respectful of the people (fans) around them then why can't all staffs do that ?
  10. When 'I' was on the field with a DCA corps for 5 seasons 'I' had no idea where 'My' staff was during performances and nor did I care. the staffs who do this act like it's a private performance just for them with no regard for anything or anyone else
  11. Thanks for this information… It is great to hear they are addressing the issue. :)
  12. Hi Folks, This is directed in hopes that someone from the DCA staff running the DCA Prelims and Finals this weekend can be aware of this. If you can help out getting this over to them (Whether you are going to be in Rochester NY this weekend or not) I (and many fans) will truly appreciate it. On to the concern.... The stadium is on smallish side and the area where staff/instructors and other corps supporters get to stand during their corps performance is right on top on the lower tier seating area. A good number (majority) of staff and instructors scream out and yell and clap for 'Their' corps to the point that it completely interferes with the fans ability to enjoy the show. This problem has been getting worse not better. Last year it was so bad that a verbal fight broke out between staff and fans and if not for a wall, it might have gotten physical. DCA Staff...this is a big me. To the corps staff and instructors who can't seem to be respectful: STOP IT!! You are embarrassing yourself, your corps and most importantly you are impacting the ability for fans to enjoy your corps show. It's amazing how some corps staff and instructors can stand in the same spot and you barely even know they are there. Tells you something...tells you quite a bit. I will be posting which corps staffs where out of control (hopefully none) here in hopes it will stop... STOP IT!!
  13. Labor Wknd weather DCA's back in Scranton pa? :) PA is infamous for wacky weather. Never forget how cold it was on finals night in 1994
  14. How About Some Common Ground?

    I agree!!
  15. Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    I am hoping their show choice will be more like 2016 vs. 2017. Not a fan of 17 especially compared to 2016...
