  1. Well, Dallas is the closest and we have to fly to our shows other than Houston anyway.
  2. ^OO^ I hope the "Texas" chant is a tradition by the two (or more) corps in the future. It was thrilling and yet sounded so odd at a drum corps event!
  3. 1. '95 Madison Scouts 2. '02 Cavaliers 3. '92 Santa Clara Vanguard 4. '93 Star of Indiana 5. '99 Madison Scouts 6. '91 Crossmen 7. '92 Velvet Knights 8. '01 Madison Scouts 9. '90 Star of Indiana 10. '02 Crossmen 11. '03 Santa Clara Vanguard 12. '02 Seattle Cascades
  4. Scouts 1-1995 2-1975 3-1999 4-1997 5-1991 6-1979 7-1988 8-2001 9-1985 10-2005
  5. Training camp begins at the very end of July and DCI San Antonio is about the 20th usually.
  6. If I didn't have Scouts 75 and Phantom 03 then I would take my chances swimming for the nearest island that had the one that I didn't...
  7. 1. Crossmen 2. Blue Stars 3. Southwind 4. Capital Regiment 5. The Magic
  8. I am new to DCA (last year was my first Championships). I was wondering what a DCA Classic Countdown would consist of? How about some DCA long-timers (noticed I avoided the word old-timers :sshh: ) giving us what you envision it as, same rules (no dups, 2-70s, 4-80s, 4-90s & 2-2000s). I know the history isn't the same as DCI but I'm just making it comparable...
  9. The number of shows for each corps is very close to what I would have guessed before this began: 18 - Blue Devils 94,86,88,76,99,03,00,84,82,90,80,95,04,92,89,97,98,96 17 - Cadets 00,05,87,84,83,89,93,95,85,82,92,98,91,90,97,96,01 12 - Santa Clara Vanguard 89,99,88,00,87,04,03,75,93,86,97,02 10 - Phantom Regiment 96,89,03,93,05,78,91,97,79,04 8 - Madison Scouts 95,96,99,97,75,88,98,03 6 - Cavaliers 00,02,95,03,04,01 4 - Bridgemen 80,77,78,76 3 - 27th Lancers 80,81,75 3 - Crossmen 92,97,01 3 - Star of Indiana 93,91,90 2 - Bluecoats 05,90 2 - Boston Crusaders 00,03 2 - Carolina Crown 05,04 2 - Muchachos 75,74 2 - Suncoast Sound 85,88 2 - Velvet Knights 92,85 1 - Blue Knights 99 1 - Glassmen 01 1 - Kingsmen 74 1 - Spirit of Atlanta 80
  10. 1. Madison Scouts 1975 2. Santa Clara Vanguard 1989 3. Phantom Regiment 2003 4. Boston Crusaders 2000 5. Madison Scouts 1995 6. Cavaliers 2002 7. Madison Scouts 1999 8. Cavaliers 2004 9. Blue Devils 1994 10. Bridgemen 1980 Anit-Vote: Phantom Regiment 2005
  11. Anyone else voting for Sky Ryders? I like most all of their shows so I'd like to vote with the majority to increase their chances of getting in.
  12. Very good point. The problem for the Scouts, Bluecoats and PR is that they have to have three corps decline. That’s not going to happen in one years time. BD slipped last year but that was from a show that was poorly conceived from the beginning. The execution and talent of last year’s Blue Devils was still top caliber. I always hope for “new” blood at the top but as far as an analytical prediction, I wouldn’t bet against Cavies, BD or Cadets in November.
  13. When was the last time a corps seeded first going into Finals did not win?
  14. I know moving away from your Drum Corps family is very difficult. You'll have to drive a little to Houston or Dallas but GCS and Frontier need and welcome dedicated members like you! We (Frontier) have a few members from San Antonio and Austin SO come see us! Frontier website
  15. Frontier hotel: Econo-Lodge - Moosic rehearsal: Archbald Sports Complex
  16. 05 - Crown 04 - SCV 03 - Phantom 02 - Cavies 01 - Cavies 00 - Boston 99 - Scouts 98 - Cadets 97 - Scouts 96 -? 95 - Scouts 94 -? 93 - Cadets 92 - Cadets 91 - Star 90 - BD 89 - SCV 88 - Scouts 87 - Sky Ryders
  17. I’ll get flamed for this because the BIG THREE’s shows were so unpopular this year but I think top to bottom 2005 was my favorite. After quarterfinals most years, I’m not in any hurry to get back to see the 17th – 13th corps at semifinals. This year I was! And the finals group I’d say that positions 3 and 5-12 are top contenders for the best ever at their respective positions. I’ll probably forget this opinion in a couple of years (because of the recent “elite” corps less crowd pleasing shows of 2005) and go back to my favorites of 1980 and 1991. Right now I’m still thankful for wanting to be in my seat for almost every corps performance in 2005.
  18. Hey Jeff, you belittle the Cavies dynasty by stating that the Bears have one? …but great news to have more DCI involvement in the NFL stadiums!
  19. I assume it is the usual $25 that we learned from Foxboro is a reasonable amout.
  20. I definitely thought The Cadets and the Cavaliers show were the best executed. This topic is not to question that. I just want to know your top five “entertaining” 2005 shows regardless of complexity or even musical superiority. Mine: 1. Crown 2. Phantom 3. Xmen 4. Spirit 5. Scouts Please try to set your affiliations aside. I’m a Scouts fan and I loved their show the best BUT if I could have seen the Scouts perform someone else’s show this is the ones I’d choose.
  21. A surprise was promised for the Scouts’ Finals performance. What could it be???? Perhaps another guest performer???? b**bs b**bs b**bs b**bs I say Michael Cesario will dance the part of Carmen. ^0^
