  1. https://www.drumcorpseurope.org/newsitem.php?id=15276&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook I realise that this isn't DCI specific, but there was a big thread about this not too long ago. For the uninformed, Drum Corps Europe, the sanctioning body for all drum corps activities in Holland, Germany and the rest of the European Continent (The UK has DCUK and is separate, although British corps do compete in Europe as well), unexpectedly and suddenly ceased operations immediately after the 2017 DCE Championships. This left Europe without a sanctioning body and show organiser,

  2. Looks like the Mandarins are having a strong start. This photo was posted on their FB page last night: https://www.facebook.com/mandarins.sacramento/photos/a.546609405432007.1073741829.324307517662198/1564898130269791/?type=3 Apparently they have over 80 brass, and this is just their NorCal audition. They have a SoCal audition camp coming up soon. Hoping they keep up the momentum they’ve been building!

  3. I don’t pay much attention to a show’s designation. Location, date matter most. And then I hope there is a good group of corps. But TOC in Katy, TX looks very good. I think I’ll see that this year and rent a car for a short drive to watch San Antonio as usual.

  5. As great as Star 93 was, SCV 1989 was a bit cleaner. If we went by today's sheets, Star would win brass (not by a ton), maybe percussion, but their visual performance on Finals night was sloppy (as was Cadets). It rained that night in 1993 and the really hard drills suffered. By today's sheets I think SCV would win GE, Visual and be close in other areas.

  6. Oh absolutely. That show that Johnson did this fall and the 2014 one are pretty remarkable, 2017 live was about the most fun and energergized I've felt by a music program. Just all about chemistry and where they'd fit.

  7. Don’t know how the activity survived this long without singers. Blue Devils show would have been a lot better with a singer.

  8. About ten years ago I visited Colonial Williamsburg shortly before Memorial Day and after the parade that closes the day, members of the fife and drum corps were having a going away party for two members who were leaving to march with a drum corps. I don't know which corps they left to march with, but the connection is still there. Williamsburg has a phenomenal program for kids. Years ago, the marchers actually took on the personas of children who grew up in Williamsburg during the colonial era. They used to introduce themselves by their name and mention the father's occupation. They'd explain

  9. The 2 different judges that judged the " how to march " that 2002 Cadets program however( in Semi's and Finals) did not agree with you on the " how to march " part. The 2002 Cadets finished 4th in both the Semi's and the Finals in " Visual Performance ". This effectively took them out of any chance of winning, but did allow them to medal at 3rd. Like you however, I really did enjoy that 2002 Cadets show that season from them.... and a lot too. And you are correct that based upon the visible reaction of audience responses we have from that season, ( as well as my own personal experiences at t
