  1. Here is a link to the news on the improving financial situation of the Corps. http://www.madisonscouts.org/2019/12/forward-performing-arts-reports-preliminary-financial-results-for-2019/
  2. Encouraging news on Madison’s financial picture at madisonscouts.org. Sorry I can’t post the link from my phone. Check it out if you are interested.
  3. The Hopkins revelations come to mind for me. That stained the entire activity.
  4. Here is a take on Madison's audition process so far from DCI.org. https://www.dci.org/news/new-look-madison-scouts-off-to-strong-start-with-2020-auditions?utm_source=sfmc&utm_medium=email&fbclid=IwAR30GumeC-ZBr-rZuiXqaw1xlkji8ry_-j_-dAASy_QttCSgg1BVTMdJPm8
  5. Well, I would be up for coming down from the Twin Cities for a weekend to just hang out with some of the other oldsters. It doesn't have to necessarily involve a drum corps show.
  6. Well, I guess I'm done. Glad I didn't donate yet. Mike, do you think there will be any interest in continuing with the tailgate party?
  7. I did not see if that proposal was actually adopted or not. Any idea if that is now the policy? The following is what is on the website as of today: "If you contribute at the $100 amount or above, you are enrolled as a "voting member" of Forward Performing Arts, Inc. for the fiscal year in which the donation is received."
  8. I believe that this slate of candidates was elected to the Board of Directors at the annual meeting. http://www.madisonscouts.org/about-2/board-of-directors/board-candidates-for-elected-seats-2019/
  9. More staff announcements from the Madison Scouts. http://www.madisonscouts.org/2019/09/madison-scouts-announce-2020-design-team-2/

  11. Speaking of Staff Merry-Go-Round; http://www.madisonscouts.org/2019/09/madison-scouts-welcome-dr-ward-miller/?fbclid=IwAR0W3LSuCQ9KrFTPfmlMagRcJZVasC9PCwf7HyeObs18TcBCgy6Zg1kgr70
  12. With regard to marching band they are vastly different styles. Disclaimer, I marched in the Badger Band from 1977 - 1981.
  13. It ain't haiku, that's for sure. I may have to go back and see if I can read it in iambic pentameter.
  14. Here is a link. http://www.madisonscouts.org/2019/09/madison-scouts-announce-2020-design-team/?fbclid=IwAR35vuDpsyPr_zRjMDzc9_MqGCe10fA82N8dAzsYLjeKgcb4MDEApL8mt30
