    Time to create a Blast Zone Mutual Admiration Club.

    What?  I can’t hear you. 

    The one rule that this club would have to require is everyone would have to know sign language if communications are needed during a corps performance, or all conversations must take place after a corps is finished.

    But he still has drum corps opinions on social media, it appears. I was shown some posts where he's critical of BAC, calling it "very much the same. The same moves, the same body, the same drill, the same drumming." Critical of BAC and Cadets doing "the snare body dance thing." I lol'd

    Sour grapes since Boston didn't provide financial loans in the past when he came begging.

     Also, the roads in "Commonwealth of Kentucky" are "independently" horrible; we need the infrastructure bill.  I sat in Louisville traffic due to "1 lane" construction for 1.5 hours.  I usually fly; I remember now why I stopped driving.     

    If only the infrastructure bill would be only for standard infrastructure items.

    We recently traveled from SW UT to TN, RI, MA, NH, and back to UT.  We purposely stayed off 80W coming home because of all the construction showing up on Googles maps.  But, several of the other major highways had all kinds of construction taking place.  We had to detour around Indy with 70 work being done.  By the looks of it, some of these construction projects will not be completed for some time.

    Early in the pandemic, COVID spread like wildfire through the Navajo population. Their response is how everyone else's response should have been. 91% of the Navajo Nation is now vaccinated with at least one shot, the highest rate in the world. Yet they continue to take these precautions, because they are smart.

    All Native American populations taken as a whole make up the most vaccinated demographic in the United States.

    Maybe Tony Hillerman can put Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee on the C19/vaccine beat.

    I have yet watched a complete Flo production.  Have only pulled up five corps and Boston is the only corps I've watched twice.  I'm not excited about getting my "DCI fix".  Whether it's the short season, no scores, some corps not participating, Flo, etc., it's just not happening.  Next viewing will be next Thursday to see how "finals week" is being done.

    I don’t know if I have the stomach to watch the same corps again and again! 

    In a normal year, having the experts post what changes corps are doing, does add some interest for me. Guess scoring is a bigger loss than I would have expected, but it is great that DCI is allowing corps to do something, and for the rabid fans to get their DCI fix.  Crowd in A-Town should be rocking tonight.

    a lot of that has to do with what they can demand due to local and state laws

    Stopped off in Tuba, AZ, on our way home and it was like we stepped back into last Summer.  Masks required, most fast foods were drive-up only, and the gas station we used had a door monitor checking temps and only allowing so many people in at a time.  Tuba has the largest Navajo population within Navajo Nation and they may be experiencing an increase in people with C19, or maybe they're not interested in vaccines.

    Now that we have been able to see shows, who is taking advantage of the non-judged year by doing things that normally wouldn’t be done in a judged year?  

    What are some things that are being done that will be unique to 2021?

    Boston testing the video screens to see if the logistics of them throughout the day and during the show are worth it.

    So - it is ok to be 10 yards from the performers in the stands, but not 10 yards from the performers in the lot.  😎 

    These head scratching rules have been going on since last year.  When senior softball tournaments started up again last Summer, we had C19 rules to follow.  The biggest joke was you had to have your face covered in the on deck circle, where you're about 20' from anyone, but didn't need it when at bat where the catcher and umpire are within 10' feet of you.

    yes, lots ARE CLOSED  these corps are literally in a 250-person bubble - they cannot rely on the "honor system" of "I'm vaccinated and symptom free" 

    But they're still performing in some fields where, as ILC mentioned above, the audience is real close to them.  Seems like they have to rely on the honor system.  Come on man!

    Really nice show from The Cadets. I like the narration. Somewhat historical as it introduces the tunes and some history or when the tune was first played...as in Rocky Point. 

    Guess posting that YT video today is not allowed.  (Tried a few different search options with no luck of course.  Hope the motel we use on the 3rd has a good signal.)

    Boston and this whole video board Zoom thing is something I'm particularly anxious to see. Wondering if this will be the "next big change" in drum corps and spark all kinds of controversy before the Rules Congress.  

    Over their history, Boston has probably introduced/attempted more innovations than any other corps.  Remember the corps shout before stepping off the SL?  I believe it was we don’t Gava.  They’ve accepted penalties in stride and moved on.
