  2. C2 originally was supposed to be at the Downingtown show before they decided to go to Everett -
  3. Hey Big W - were you at the WCU alumni music reading event about a month ago?
  4. So Clifton Band Director was just let go Monday night. I hope it had nothing to with all of the empty beverages all over the place
  5. Does DCA have a PR person? The ads seem to a bit of unprofessional this year more do then in the past. This year the theme seems to be: "If you didn't like the outcome from last season, you might see it corrected at the __________________ show." Or "Maybe the lead will change at the Mifton (a random made up name) show" Really? And those were not the only instances? It just seems there is a bitter atmosphere this year- and DCA promotes it a bit.

  8. Being honest- that was a really disjunct eval/review. ADHD much? Wow! I guess I was at a different show apparently.
  9. Possible - Organize the parking should be a the top of the list...... Whatever the reasons - parking has to be fixed and also made safer - and if you want to hhold the vent there again - enforce the no alcohol and no smoking policy because that is the state policy in NJ for all schools and their properties. It was extreme in the lots. I know from experience that it is a big undertaking to host any DCA show,however, you must have the show /event staff on site from first thing in the morning. First thing in the morning means 8am. Anything less is a rough or badly run show at best. Performances were great but outside of the gate was a huge free for all for corps and their members. It felt like someone decided that day to put a show together and forgot to organize parking. Alumni have to be respectful of the needs of the corps. Was there handicap parking? Parking was an issue for everyone - members and spectators. Whatever was the reason - the bottom line is it was not taken care of. A sign is not taking care of it. Active parking workers is the only way - if you do not have enought people - should not have the show. It was that bad. I apologize but I do know what it takes. Sticking signs up for a DCA show has never worked. The audience and alumni corps cannot read at DCA events. Sorry - You have to fix it. COrps show werre great - parking not so much
  10. Looking at the season from "3rd Person's point of view" is very difficult when dealing with enthusiastic fans or the Kool aid drinkers from ANY program.and that is all I am going to say about that -
  11. Just throwing it out there plus another question later on this evening - based on this response
  12. 1)BD 2) Bluecoats 3) Crown 4)Cadets 5) SCV 6)Blue Knights 7)Boston 8) Phantom Regiment 9) Madison 10) Cavaliers 11) Blue Stars 12) Colts
  13. Gotta say - somewhat of a tainted observation. Each group - and I mean each group stepped it up at finals. Just let it go at that -
