  1. Probably, as it stands now with what little info is out there, this gig in the oil can should never have left the DCI offices.
  2. The Bridgemen's endings in 78&79 were different.
  3. Have there not been several stories on the small screen, online, and in print that list how poor virtual learning has been nationwide? Even children with access to computers are not participating. Our world wide standing in education of our children has been dropping for years, never mind with C19 making learning very challenging.
  4. One of the biggest reasons teachers didn't want to go back to in classroom teaching was the possibility of children infecting others within the school. Again, some feel the "science" doesn't support their concerns. Did De Blasio change his mind do to science or the parental out cry? Many parents might be upset if their child is kept back, but some won't mind since they'll be a year older, bigger, stronger, more coordinated, for sports.
  5. Some teacher unions seem to still be in pre election mode. Elementary school children have always been at a very low level of catching C19 and those who do are usually back in the game in two weeks. From the CDC site. Data as of Age group COVID-19 Deaths Indicator Sex Race or Hispanic Origin Group Start Week
  6. As a lay person in regards to vaccines, I wonder how many governments want to buy Pfizer's version with it needing two shots and special refrigeration. Hopefully the taxpayer doesn't get hit for the extra costs. Yeah right!
  7. Oh boy! Have you heard of any of the tens of thousands of participants in the trials, of all the manufacturers creating a vaccine, dying? Some people have side effects from taking advil.
  8. Neither did Ed Denon or Joe Dowling’s wife Felicia.
  9. Maybe the wrath of Tony S. against the East corps struck again.
  10. The BACBONE first used by the Boston Crusaders in 2008 " NEOCOSMOS." It was a "BLUEMAN" type Percussion Instrument. Played by Mitchell Beckman . This short clip is the best way of showing you. This is the firsts of many in this weekend's" BAC INNOVATIONS."
  11. Yes it is and that's St. Lucy's to his left.
  12. From the Boston Crusaders D&BC Friends & Alumni FB page. "The BOSTON CRUSADERS have been true Innovators of the Drum Corps World. BAC was the the first to create Marching Bells, Marimbas and Tympanis. To eventually having the very first Stationary Pit. In 1985 the Boston Crusaders shocked the DCI Judges and Fans. In being the first corps to use an Electric Synthesizer. To play none other than "AXEL F." From a BAC mm. "At the beginning of the 1977 drum corps season (I was 13 yrs old), Danny Pitts (our BAC drum instructor) made me into a one man marching percussion accessory
  13. For those of us who have or are still competing in track & field, soccer, softball, baseball, basketball, road/bike races, etc. Would like to speak with you.
  14. With the start of C19 vaccine's distribution in a month or so, there's a good chance by Aug./Sept. of 21, we should all have learned if the vaccine's are working. Even if catching C19 has almost been eliminated, I'm thinking housing sites of old might come up with excuses why they don't want to open up their facilities again.
  15. To me, whether a collegiate or professional team, they both are teams "galavanting all over the country".
  16. The higher the Division level for a collegiate team, the further they travel. Then there's the March madness games and then NIT games for other schools.
  17. Besides the discussion of props and such that should be temporarily eliminated, what about open class going back to 128 mm for a couple of years? Comparing the cost savings or lost income between 128 and 150 should be interesting.
  19. I first posted in this thread when you posted a video of the Crossmens percussion section with CP comments at Madison during Finals nights. I would not know if the guy with a large head and dark hair is Charlie. Allentown was not involved and there's no results for 8-2 if there was a show at A-Town. Recaps were taken off the From The Pressbox site. The recaps for 7-18 in Boston do not list any judges names. I can't find Charlie as a field percussion judge anywhere on FTP. Maybe it's listed on another source.
  20. Don't think so.
  21. Anyone mention Wild Bill Hooten of the Reilly Raiders (?).
