Some closing thoughts.
So happy for the Vanguard organization. It seems they are in a good place and hope that this will be an era of being contenders and hopefully titles for the foreseeable future. Also, SCVC wins Open Class and the Guard with their first World Class title I believe.
SCV, this season's show will be in my top 5, I love it.
I think the other big story of the year is BAC, shows having super staff matters. It's not an accident their Guard goes from 12th to 3rd, concurrently Crown's Guard goes from 3rd to 6th.
Speaking of BAC, love their show as well. They had the best use of vocals. Like I said before, Mixing+Arrangement+Vocalist equals success.
I agree with others that it seems per results that staging is taking more importance than drill. Hope this will not continue or this will hurt the activity in the long run.
I wonder what ramifications the mic issue will have over the winter in terms of design and/or rule changes if any. Crown put all the chips in for having vocals, it hurt them. How? Depends on how one looks at it, but to have it happen at finals, still stinks whether it affected the score or not.
The Vanguard Percussion program is firing on all cylinders and this is now their 14th title. I think the most in DCI just pass BD.
I was on the fence with the whole uni/costume deal. I get it now. Never thought the Scouts show would tip me over.
I started a thread on this. I like what Cavies did for the retreat. Hope other corps follow suit and come out with some semblance of a traditional Uniform.
Interesting to see Bluecoats not score well in percussion, yet Crown scored well. Glad to see them do well. Hope Bluecoats bounce back next season.
Scouts, BK, Cavies, Crossmen shows fascinating me, well done.
Crown Brass, Bravo. To Crown overall. You had the best 1st half of show. I'll leave it at that.
Cadets - Just couldn't get into the show
Phantom. Saw them live in California. Love how they improved this season.
Bluecoats - Seem like a repeat of last season. But ridiculously talented corps from top to bottom.
Blue Stars. I need more viewings.
Congrats to BD.
