  1. I spent many summer nights housed withn OC corps. The power strips, cell phones and laptops were abundant and almost every kid had their head buried in one. Even in the wea hours of the night when everyone was suppose to be asleep u could see the lights from smart phones or laptops. At the DCA level I saw kids and adults pulling them out in the middle of reherals. Looking at Facebook when the should have been lfocusing on their dot book or music. I fully support a full ban on cell phones at both the DCI and DCA level. The season is just to short and there is just too much at stake. Rehearsa

  2. What are your top YouTube videos to show people who've never seen or heard of drum corps? I'm talking about people who have good taste in music and the performing arts, but who've never been to a DCI, WGI, quality marching band, etc, show. Here are some of mine, but I'd love to get more suggestions... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40AoNuzcIYk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_a223baelU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3dVWvqTPs8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjobLUS1uIU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYOz8sRpdmE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vq7hZ4U-Pac http://www.youtube.com/watch?v

  6. Labor Day Weekend, 2014, will be very special to DCA. It will be the 50th DCA World Championship – Their golden anniversary. An occasion such as this is important to any organization and Gil Silva, DCA President, advises that they are pulling out all the stops to make this event truly memorable for all. He and the DCA Executive Board have formed an ad hoc committee to ensure that the history of DCA and – indeed – the history of drum corps will be properly remembered in the coming year. This committee held their initial meeting on Friday, August 30th in Annapolis, MD. For more info go to h

  8. Good calls on SCV '89 and Spartacus; fantastic shows. I think I'm gonna leave off SCV '89 because their uniforms (probably because of the era) look a bit goofy to the marching-naive (wide, short pants; cowboy-style hat)--totally superficial on my part, but hey, this is for people forming their first impressions of the activity. I'm adding the full Spartacus show, and 2 clips from Carolina Crown 2008 (can't seem to find a good one of the opening impact, though): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0G-TNBd2hi4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oZbvc1pQ-M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSijJDEnmo

  9. As a member of Cadets in 2007 (see my signature), the narration didn't affect me much at all. 2007 was one of my absolute favorite shows to march - the music and drill was some of the most fun and intense that I had the opportunity to be a part of. Some back story for you - After each season, George has us fill out surveys. These surveys cover everything from food, to housing, to transportation, staff, and the show. We are able to give as much (or as little) feedback as we like in the surveys. After 2004, most of the membership said that we wanted to get back to The Cadets pushing the env

  10. The greatest ideas and concepts start with great music. Great composers. Great arrangements. Plain and simple.

  12. Hello, This man who was arrested was subject to a background check by the school where he worked, as are all school employees in NJ. He was hired and worked there for a number of years so you can take from that he must have passed the inquiry. The statement in which I am quoted by the APP is not from the Prosecutor's release, it is the work of a bad editor at the APP who took my words out of context during a phone conversation that I had with him. I have requested several times for a correction but there doesn’t seem to be a will at the APP to get the story accurate. A word of advice - be ve

  13. From a performer's standpoint it would make a difference if I were there for more than one year, but even then those feeling would only be temporary. I knew that shows would always get better and would grow on me and I'd be able to perform it and buy into it EVENTUALLY, even if the reasons for doing so were mostly involved in the positive nuts and bolts of my summer experience that may not have anything to do with show design. I mean, my default was, if all else fails, go with the brute-force method and make myself like it.

  14. My Settings>Your Options/Forums>Number of posts to show for each topic page=40/Number of topics to show for each forum page=40>Save Changes. That what works for me. (One can choose 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 or 40 for each the number of posts or number of topics per page.) I'm stumped why it might not work for you. Would someone please try it and let us know if it works for them? Thank you.
