  1. One and the same... (Now everyone knows how old I must be. LOL) 😎
  2. "TennTux" (my DCP avatar) Because of the walk on write-up that was read as we (Sun) entered the field at the Dream. (3 years, 80, 81 & 82) Which ended with "Conducted on the field by Tennessee Tuxedo" "Moose" (this one was after the Bassline suggested we have a tough sounding nickname for the DM. I said so long as you don't call me Butch. (A competitor Corps's DM's nickname) "MacNamara" (As In the "leader of the band") "Tony Height" (several meanings. I called cadence "Heit, Heit, Heit" instead of hup & because I'm 5' 6" it usually was "Tony *&^* for height". Also it was a slurred reference to my last name.) In my 10 years with Sun there were others but I agree with Jeff... The mods would not accept my posting them... LOL 😉
  3. AMEN! I wish the 9/11 Memorial video, The one Fran, with Quest Graphics Design, put together, (with the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps) was still available.... Sadly the link is no longer working to the old location here on DCP... OLD URL: http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/911tribute/index.htm I was re-directed to this link (http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/2006/09/september-11-tribute/ ) but it's not there either... ☹️
  4. Yep.... L O T S of goosebumps (ours AND the audience's) when we played the full version too... Tony ;-) BAC, 69
  5. Donna and I will be seated next to you and Brenda...... In Abington, MD! LOL
  6. Dave,

     

    I have carefully read (twice) your post to JohnD. I agree with you and can not find what it was (is) that caused such an opinion that you were, in ANY way, attempting to be confrontational. Perhaps it's that I am also "Old School" Drum Corps and was brought up in a different time. (Actively competing from 1963-1985) I can relate to what, IMHO, you were attempting to say in your choice of words. I also came from a time when each Drum Corps lived their Corps' "Traditions".

     

    Yours in Corps,

    Tony
    PS: Thank you for your mention of my al-mater... BAC, 1969

  7. How to post photos is not the difficult part (IMHO) but finding suitable photos is. (again JMHO) From MANY moons ago..... The question on HOW to post photos on DCP was asked. (even by me a long time ago.) Here are a few of the answers from BITD. Images/pictures in posts, How to put pictures in a post thread (on DCP) http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=104608 one answer http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=99685 another http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=97412 another http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=94194 another http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=91262 and even the one I asked...(all the way back on Dec 17 2005) http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=73399 Hope one or more of these are helpful if anyone has some photos...
  8. I don't think so...... Frank asked if Guido and or I would like to continue Nanci's efforts here.... I posted I would need to look for some pics. (We, Donna and I, lost a LOT of our DC "stuff" when we lived out on LI to a couple of hurricanes (no, not those guys and gals in Ct. but the ones that filled our house with water up to the second floor. ) I've been looking through what I have however most have already been posted. (I sent the ones I have over to Nanci many months ago) Most of the DC related photos I have now were given to us by family and friends. And those were something related to the Corps Donna and I marched with. It's not going to be very interesting is most of the photos are of Donna and moi... IMHO, We ALL can contribute to this thread. I would guess we all have some pics that would be of interest no?
  9. We'll need to look for some pics to share....
  10. Wow.... No posts since Fran's back on July 12th 2016!
  11. Matt, We'll continue communicating through email, and or phone.... Thanks Mods! As I was telling you, I spoke with my friend last night. YES!
  12. Hi Matt! If you're not in a hurry to get rid of your collection of VHS tapes..... I know of a couple folks that have a collection of Drum Corps memorabilia that might be interested. I've digitized several VHS videos to DVD and if they would like, I would be interested in doing that for the guys I'm thinking of. As I'm sure everyone knows, there's no long term reliability with the VHS tape and if someone wanted to keep the DC shows for longer storage they would need to be digitized. (With a DC VHS project I'm still working on, I had a few tapes from the late 70's and early 80's that really needed to be digitized before the data was lost and I worked on them first) I can also contact my friends and see if they're interested.... Again, if you're not in a hurry to get your VHS tapes out of your way quickly. Yours in Corps, Tony ;-) EMail: SunriserDM@gmail.com
  13. Hoping not..... Edit: FOUND THEM! THANKS! http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?/forum/221-general-off-topic-discussions/
  14. Apologies for my delayed reply..... Let's take one of the easier ones first. (and one that NanciD has previously posted before, though it was quite a while ago...) Corps: Year: Where: Who: FTD has asked if anyone could name the judge for a BONUS!
  15. Thank you for your kind words Tom..... Nat was one hell of a great guy, one of the most dedicated Sunrisers I knew of and a very good friend. Very sorry we've lost another one way too young.
  16. THANK YOU everyone for taking part in this while we wait for our Queen's return... Now, does anyone else have any more photos? (if not, I'll look through what I have and see if I can find something a little more challenging...) If anyone does, and would like to send it to me, I'll post it for you. (Please send any info you have, the who/where/when and if you know who took the pic) SunriserDM@gmail.com
  17. WooHoo!! (1999) Yes! This resurrection of the "DREAM" team is Scott Yaniga, Glen Johnson, Donnie Solinger and Dave Barth. This was taken on May 8th, 1999 at the Bergenfield, NJ High School by Moe Knox! THANKS for playing!
  18. CORRECT! (except he's number 3... heh) THANKS for playing!
