    Drum corps...of COURSE! Also, I'm a huge Dave Matthews fan. My favorite drum corps show of all time would be '93 Devils....geeez, those sops soloists KILL!

    Is @tesmusic still reading this thread? I remember your “sir-fracks-a-lot” comment. I wonder how much you really know about me. Probably not nearly as much as you think.
  2. Ya think? That’s all this admin is now. Gimmick after gimmick.
  3. Well, the Madison Scouts will cease to be the Madison Scouts, for all intents and purposes, so there’s that.
  4. Agreed. It’s gimmicky and embarrassing. I haven’t been a fan of the current admin for awhile now. I won’t pretend to have the answers because this isn’t what I do for a living. However, I think the corps has missed finals more under the current admin’s watch than anytime in the history of DCI and I firmly believe the two are correlated.
  5. I’m honestly shocked at how many alums are cool with this.
  6. I really doubt she paid dues. I certainly could be wrong, but I was seem to remember that being the case.
  7. Which was your first mistake. “To a fault” would be an understatement.
  8. And will effective kill the Madison Scouts. Congrats! Another dead drum corps.

    Congratulations Megan! LOL And so it begins...

    I think your second post answers your first. There aren't any more all-female corps for a reason. Outside of guard, there are MANY more males that march corps (horns/drums) than females.
  11. Accidental Shooting - a Scout?

    I posted it earlier in the Scouts thread.

    Hadn't seen this posted anywhere. RIP to this young man.

    Because he assumes a lot more than he should and likes to ##### and moan about how he's a better Madison Scout than the rest of us.

    Exactly. And the current admin has shown that, when facing a strong push, they aren't capable of keeping their heads above water. Instead we get comments like, "...but Sal Salas." That was over 10 years ago, people. If Sal was able to put this corps into a 10+ year financial hole, then heads should roll for ANYONE who allowed him to wield that kind of unchecked power. Perhaps they already have, but that excuse is nothing more than a crutch and excuses aren't good enough anymore. Everyone out of Finals is gunning for the Scouts now and, without change at the top, they are in a very precarious position come next season. Don't tell me that an all-male corps can't still be competitive, either. Cavies finished 4th. Set trends, don't follow them. Take drum corps back in the direction of bad ### powerful, melodic music while still meeting the competitive criteria. I can't believe it's an either/or proposition. Just my $.02.
