    I am excited to announce the release of a new mobile app. Starting today, you can download DrumScorps for your iOS, Android, or Windows phone. Developed in partnership with Drum Corps Planet, DrumScorps is an app designed for the drum corps community and is a must-have for members, family, alumni, and fans. Within the app, you can: - Check the latest scores (with integrated recaps!) or view historical scores from past seasons - Read up-to-date news with categories ranging from Open Class to International corps and more - Explore the tour schedule for your favorite corps - See details about each and every event during the season including time and place, performing corps, and weather conditions - Find nearby events and get directions to the stadium For more screenshots and info, check out the full announcement here: http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/drumscorps-for-iphone-android-windows-phone/ You can also follow us on Twitter for updates about the app: @DrumScorps I'd also like to take a minute to thank all of those who have been involved in the development of DrumScorps. To JohnD, a huge thank you for working with me on this project. It could not have been done without you. To Ken Hammond, for providing all of the excellent graphics and icons you see throughout the app. Also a huge shout-out to those that were involved in testing the app. Your feedback and suggestions truly helped shape DrumScorps into what it is today. DrumScorps started out a year ago as a simple Windows Phone app that did one thing: display scores. One year later, with the help of Drum Corps Planet and this community, the app is available on all mobile platforms with significantly expanded functionality. I sincerely hope everyone enjoys the app and finds it useful throughout the drum corps season.

    The amount of stupid hurts and it all starts with super-secret drum corps shows days before the season starts. Seriously, step back and wallow in the idiocy and what you folks are saying to each other All this stupid just cost Blue Devils a placement, they will not be this years’ DCI Champions now who is sorry? Nope, too late the cow has mooed

    Data that would be actually useful in mobile app: housing sites. I know the availability of that data is very hit and miss but it's a killer feature for mobile. Imagine begin in the area of a big regional; click on a corps and boom! google maps opens with direction to their housing site.

    I spoke to said poster Privately so as not to drag it out in public as I was asked to investigate by the person who took the video. The youtube vid was someone else but someone who knew that person and dishonored him. Had I found the video online I would not have posted it as I knew the source of it. I happened to be there that day and knew the location of the videographer. Not everyone would know that though. Alluding to having more sources available by PM is not exactly cool either. However, I do feel that shaming him on this thread is also not very nice. Let's just move on and try to be civil.

    For me it hinges on whether they offer on demand viewing after the live shows. It was rare that my schedule aligned to where I could watch an event live and I doubt that will change for me this summer.

    Not gonna lie, I did get some enjoyment out of the hearts in the first broadcast tonight when Hop was just sitting there with his mouth open, and it looked like they were all flying into his mouth.

    I was not the poster suggesting that BAC's 75th would garner them any extra credit. I don't believe that is the case. I WAS responding to someone who suggested that current members do not care about nor feel bound by any sense of history and thus would not relate to the 75th. That is simply not true. Naturally, every member brings their own backgrounds and personalities with them when they arrive at move in and begin the touring process. My experience with Boston, which reaches back nearly 40 years, has shown me time and again that BAC has a certain historical thread weaving through its organization at the membership level. Do current members obsess about the corps' history or perform primarily for Crusaders of the past? Certainly not. Having said that, it is true that there is a thick, ever present institutional memory which the current members absorb. I would suspect that there are probably similar feelings at Madison and Cavies, and perhaps Cadets as well. In an era where many members of the "millennial generation" seem to not want anything to do with prior generations, I frankly feel that a reverence for the past and "how we persevered to survive" is a good thing.

    I'm not a smart man, Jen-nay... but in regards to the secret performance on June 15th that Hop alluded to: Edit: Looks to be Troopers and Madison for that webcast. Maybe Cadets will pop in?

    Madison Scouts in their 75th anniversary year in 2013 finished in exactly the same placement spot ( 9th ) as they did the season before. I don't think the judges care if its your anniversary year or not when it comes to their giving of scores. Boston failed to make Finals in Boston ( Foxboro ) in 1994 by a mere 4 tenths, finishing in 13th, and missing performing on Finals Night. Madison Scouts just missed out on Finals ( 14th ) in 2002 as when Finals was in Madison too. That said, most athletes, ( pro and college ) will tell you that they do feel a "special motivation" when playing at home. So this notion that those in Corps or are college or pro athletes that speak about a " special motivation " when playing at home are " immature " is silly nonsense, no matter if that remark came from a " DCI Hall of Famer " or not. Teams in sports play like heck to earn home field advantage in the playoffs, and all Corps and sport teams like and prefer to compete before home crowds. Thus, most of them do tell us that they have a natural , "special motivation" to see that it happens, and they are not " immature " for having said so. Whether it actually happens or not, is of course beside the point.

    Having spent time with the actual members of BAC (two weeks ago), I will tell you that they ARE highly motivated, and the 75th Anniversary IS in fact a big deal to them. With respect to last year, I don't think anyone can objectively watch that performance on video and not see how highly motivated those members were then as well. As I have stated on here several times before, I have no problems with the numbers from last August. Boston put on a great show at finals, but context is everything, and the 2014 Championships also included three drum corps (BK, BS, Cavies) who also happened to have their best seasons in years. The fact that these three corps hit it out of the park does not for a second diminish BAC's product. As for my own prediction...for the third year in a row, I'm going to predict 4th-9th.

    Chairs, coat racks, poles, and mirrors can be moved around, don't take up a lot of field space, and are not a safety hazard to members. Not only that, the trampolines were barely used at all. A lot of people don't like BD's style, but thing they know how to do is use props effectively.

    I imagine that like me, Fannetwork had many overseas viewers which makes it impossible to watch live events' live'. If they have the on demand (i.e. watch the next day) function on this new platform, I will subscribe, if they don't, there is no point and I suspect they will lose many other viewers that cannot watch events live (unless they are nocturnal!)

    The ballad and Waltz is more staging as opposed to the first part of the show which is intense drill. It's a nice balance, IMO

    If this has been posted, my bad, must've missed it. This is the repertoire according to corpsreps.com: "NYC" from Annie "Gotta Dance" from Singing in the Rain "Good Morning" from Singing in the Rain "I Got Rhythm" from An American in Paris "Moses Supposes" from Singing in the Rain "The Boy Next Door" from Meet me in St. Louis Traffic Jammin' from New York Cityscape for Wind Ensemble by Jeff Tyzik "Get Happy" from Summer Stock Happy Days are Here Again A lot of music. Some fun stuff in there, I'll always remember watching "Singing in the Rain" while I was younger with my mom, those'll be fun pieces. Should be a fun show!

    I can understand, but with all the changes that Madison made and what I've seen/heard, and with the product Boston put out last year, and changes in their staff, etc. This is what my crystal ball is telling me...as Styx told me...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN3R-Ivd8yA

    DCI doesn't break down their demographics, unfortunately, so it's hard to say for sure. But I'm fairly certain they have a large flying squirrel fan base based off of my own personal anecdotes I will only vaguely mention

    DCI + half-solutions and "coming soon" answers = sadly par for the course. They're as passive a bunch of people when dealing with business as I've seen. I at least hope they deal with the member corps better than this. Mike

    Yeah....thanks a lot for ruining it for so many of the alums. The source of that vid said EVERY #**(*#*#%))*ING TIME he posted one to the original location that they were NOT TO BE SHARED, POSTED, OR DOWNLOADED. But thanks to YOU, it appears he will no longer be able to provide those vids. What part of not posting them was so difficult to understand? YOU have now ruined it for everyone else. Failure to follow simple instructions...good going, jackass. :thumbdown: Oh....and isn't saying you have alternative links for bootleg vids a violation of DCP's TOS????

    So, hello, I'm an alto sax player in marching band. My band is rather small and has very little funding from the school (enough to pay for buses to transport us and our instruments to games and such). We only have 2 low brass players, the first being a trombone and the second being (not a brass though) a baritone saxophone. I've been fond of low brass since I discovered DCI on youtube and since our band is lacking in that area I decided to take on switching from alto sax to either euphonium, baritone, or tuba. Problem is we don't have any marching euphoniums, baritones or tubas. We do, however, have 2 concert model tubas, 2 concert model euphoniums, and from what I know, 0 baritones. We do have 2 flugelbones and a couple of mellophones, but those aren't brass. My goal is to play tuba if I am able to learn over the summer, in time for band camp. My first question is, should I learn to play euphonium then go to tuba, or go straight to tuba ? I was thinking to transition to tuba rather than jump right to it since I'd have to adjust to the brass embouchure first. Then again I'd still have to adjust to play tuba if I jump anyways, then my obstacle would be the air input adjustment. I have little time to decide since I can only get into our band room tomorrow then Tuesday (graduation day). Should I take home both the euphonium and the tuba or just one ? My second question is, is it possible to have a technician convert a tuba from strictly concert to marching tuba/euphonium ? Would that process be expensive ? I'm not yet old enough to work (I'm 15) I can cut grass but I'm not that great on reaching out to people who would want me to cut their grass. I'd ask my parents to help pay but they already have enough money bs problems to deal with and I don't want to feel bad for asking. Sorry if this post was tl;dr I always talk too much, probably because I hold it all in at school
