  2. Amen Jeff! I think we'll see what happens this year and then we can say whether or not B-coats where a game changer!
  3. I think, for better or worse, the formation of DCI, showed that this activity should evolve. Obviously there were clear goals to start and over the course of time the activity changed and changed. If corps were still doing the same thing today as we did in the 1970's, I don't think there would be a drum corps activity. There are good things and not so good things about change in anything in life BUT staying the same year after year would just be mundane and turn people off. DCI reached out to band directors, band directors used the corps model for their marching bands. More educators are (probably) more involved in drum corps than ever before. We have Soundsport, WGI guard and percussion, etc. The activity is still trying to go to the next level. Kudos to Royer, Jones, Seawright, Hopkins, Fiedler, Gibbs, the list goes on and on........ It's not the same thing that we did in the 60's or 70's but #### it's fun to watch and listen to and THE KIDS are so darn talented!!!!
  4. I think Madison won in 75 and Anaheim won in 1972.
  5. Was it Garfield Cadets, Blue Devils, Santa Clara, Star of Indiana, Phantom Regiment, Bridgemen, Carolina Crown, Madison Scouts, Anaheim Kingsmen or another corps? Was it 1972? 1976?Or 1960's? 1982? There's no right or wrong answer. Just give us your reasons why?
  6. Back then, obviously, we didn't have instant access to scores...ALL scores. Usually we waited till Drum Corps News or Drum Corps World put them out. Although judges talked it probably didn't occur as fast as today. Today you can text or call and back then it was a long distance call that cost money. Today a judge can look up scores from the previous show, raise the number up a bit and stay in the ball park. Placing today usually stays consistent. Each year in DCI and DCA you can tell who will win the championship.
  7. Yea, I realize Black Knights, Gaucd that about St. Joe's and Utica. You know after 76, Black Knights, Gauchos and even Imperial Regiment were doing well too.
  8. Colt .45 came to the NT Open in 74 or 75 and I was NOT a fan of that uniform. Loved the Riverboat Gambler uni's though!
  9. Colts....Riverboat Gamblers.
  10. How are the doing these days? It was always them and Fidele Vogelsanger or Wolpe Lowen
  11. ...the days when the only way you knew what music the corps were playing was by reading Drum Corps News or Drum Corps World? ...when corps would play a variety of music and there wasn't a theme? Who started this "THEME" thing anyways? Des Plaines Vanguard? Troopers? Who???? ...waiting for the CONCERT number where corps could sit back and play? ...all the All Girl Corps? Bon Bons, St. Ignatius? Mello Dears? St. Johns Girls? CapitolAires? etc ...Colts old look? ...Bridgemen and Velvet Knights? ...George Zingali and Steve Brubaker? ...Fred Stanford? ...All NY corps that are gone? (Being someone who competed in NY in the 1970's, this upsets me)...although corps from North America that are gone are missed! ...DCI on PBS LIVE?????
  12. Yes. From NY. They marched the magic show year
  13. I liked 20th Maine...the 80's version. I remember talking to the corps director, concerning a shady person who had something to do with them. Sad that they couldn't keep it going. That time period saw them , Spartans, Granite State Garrison and Patriots always going at it.
