  1. More staff announcements from the Madison Scouts.
  2. More staff announcements from the Madison Scouts.
  3. Speaking of Staff Merry-Go-Round;
  4. With regard to marching band they are vastly different styles. Disclaimer, I marched in the Badger Band from 1977 - 1981.
  5. It ain't haiku, that's for sure. I may have to go back and see if I can read it in iambic pentameter.
  6. Here is a link.
  7. We were like a street gang with instruments in the mid 70s.
  8. I agree, that ship sailed a long time ago.
  9. I don't believe that DCI will implement this type of limitation on themselves.
  10. How can this be implemented across the activity?
  11. Imagine Drum Corps of the 70s in today's environment.
  12. Awesome, I look forward to meeting you in November. I am Roark Haver, and I marched in the Jr Scouts and Scouts in the 70s.
  13. If someone wants my vote for the BOD, they need to show me why I should vote FOR them not against someone else. I respect your decision making process, mine is just different. At the end of the day, we all want to Scouts to prosper, and that is a good thing.
  14. A clearly presented vision with regard to fundraising, 5-year budget modeling, staffing, member attraction, development, and retention, show content while maintaining the Madison swagger, and tour operation could find a receptive audience. I see a lot of complaining but not a lot of concrete, well-developed, fleshed out plans. I would be interested in seeing what people with the knowledge, passion, and interest in making substantive change have to offer. It's easy to say something sucks, or the BOD should go away. Unless I've missed it, which is entirely possible, I have yet to see someone, or a cohesive group/slate of candidates put out a well thought out, detailed plan of how to get the corps back to where they want it to be. I for one, would love to see what a group of people that want to clean house have to offer in the way of a step -by-step plan to rebuild. If such a group is out there with a plan, please point me in the right direction to see it and evaluate it prior to the BOD election this fall.
