    We are each entitled to our own opinions, and yours is just as valid as anyones, though I hope it does not pan out as you are thinking it will. To me, the show content so far seems a lot less George-like than usual. I guess we'll see what ends up on the field

    On the video George posted, he said 9:00 PM.
  3. ENCORPS, NJ's newest Drum Corps

    Best of luck! You rehearse about 10 minutes from my home.
  4. Post your dot book

    Here is one...
  5. Marching - 1971 in Garfield. That was an amazing year of drum corps, as a bunch of us broke the old mold and created very radical shows for the era. We were very young, but actually pretty decent, placing 6th at the World Open and 7th at VFW Nats. Just a magical year all around.

    It was a suggestion by one member, not the people in charge of the group. The final decision was 'no', since you are not a former member, or staff member. The person asking made it clear it was his idea, not yours. .

    Really? You did not get a raise as a mod? I got one....it was actually 5% over what I was already making.
  9. WSS was originally going to be ESS, with the story taking place on the lower East Side between Irish Catholic and Jewish families.
  10. Yup, that was the one.
  11. I loved their closer last year.
  12. But...it does have Sharks in it.
  13. I really loved Karen Olivo (Anita) and Josephine Scaglione (Maria). "I Feel Pretty" sung in Spanish was a very nice touch to me. I attended the dress rehearsal and Arthur Laurents came out and did a pre-show overview to us. My daughter-in-law was a production assistant on the show.
  14. Hey, we are getting "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" this year. What MORE could you want?
  15. 2018 Rules proposals

    As I had stated...."Totally obscuring the rest of the ensemble at one and, and slightly out-of-balance on the other end is a wide continuum" There should be a difference in the scores based on the level of the issues. However, IMO the term 'sending a message' in general terms implies a judge going beyond the normal reaction and over-penalizing an ensemble for whatever that "message" is that is being sent. Judges should not send messages in that context...they should evaluate what is being presented within their caption. Maybe we have different meanings tot the term.
