    Madison Scouts 2018

    I did the same - YT viewing - and feel much the same way with one additional comment/observation: I like the last half of the show WAY more than the first half. Perhaps I'm more of a "Soul" than "Heart" least the way the show portrays...

    Boston Crusaders 2018

    Jeff, I remember the Allentown (and other cities as well) practices and participation - in some years the crowd would do the "grunt" in time with the corps and then just scream...and the DM would get everyone revved up as well...I think it was '86 when it rained so everyone did a standstill and the Boston DM was just sprinting up and down in front of the horn line as they started the bugle calls. It was awesome!

    Akron, OH - June 23, 2018

    For those who haven't been there, seating faces east so no sun in the eyes...and press box is decently high so members won't be terribly impacted...
  5. One could ALMOST think that SCV 17 unis and Madison 17 unis had a looooong weekend together and "merged DNA" to create these...

    Blue Devils 2018

    Nice! When I hear things like this there are times that, just once, I'd like to hear it on (well-tuned) G horns...just to see/hear....

    Drum Finishes 2018

    OK, so, years of old corps bus fumes must have addled that particular part of my brain (no comment on how other parts were addled) but your post triggered SOMETHING that suddenly connected the Conquest "hits" with the corps initials THANKS!
  14. Indeed. And it was kinda like "soooo, what are we competing for again?" DCI's attempt at a Miss Congeniality award...
  15. I was about to mention that song! Ahh, yes, the associate championship - i remember it "well"...
