    I remember initially being drawn to DCI because it rewarded the “hard” way to do GE, with innovative drill and visuals. I got into the activity specifically because I found the BOA prop arms race to be lame. I wish DCI would go back to leading the charge instead of piggybacking off of high school bands. Getting high GE scores without props is hard, I get it. That’s what used to make drum corps special though.

    Yeah. The 2009 show that was announced in 2006 but then never made.

  6. It includes WW parts, but you can't hear those parts unless the brass stops playing. Woodwinds simply don't have much utility on the football field. Again, they exist in scholastic marching bands because the instruments are needed in concert band. They're not needed in marching band. They're accommodated out of necessity. DCI is a field activity designed for the outdoors. Unless that changes, there's no reason to include woodwinds. They'd put even more financial strain on the member corps and the show designs would be less entertaining for spectators. There's just no place for them.
  7. eh. Marching full woodwind sections never made sense. You only see it in high school bands because the instruments are needed for concert band. For an activity designed for the football field, woodwind sections make no sense. This isn't exclusive to drum corps. Most professional orchestras don't have a dedicated euphonium section, because most symphonies don't have euphonium parts. It is what it is.
  8. Oh, one thing I would propose: corps can only perform music that they have the rights to include in the Blu-rays. This modern trend of full minutes of silence in the world championship production is ridiculous. DCI needs to figure that out.

    If someone places “their rights” above common sense prevention measures in a youth activity, they can seek employment elsewhere.

    In a court of law? Sure. We’re talking about potential rule enforcement in DCI though. A private organization. “Innocent until proven guilty” doesn’t have to apply here. Nor should it. These are kids, man.
  12. I really wish they did video bundles too. Such a hassle having to make my own rips from the Blu-rays. Just sell me the Finals lineup for the same price, DCI.
