    Drum Corps Passwords

  3. I don't see any breakout in their 2016 990 that breaks out income beyond events, USBANDS, program income and unrelated income.
  4. I think it's possible that the kids didn't take the covers off their sousaphones for the halftime, as they are supposed to. Formation changes led to the word being inadvertently spelled out. It's not 100% clear, but that's the impression I'm getting from the story I read this morning.
  5. I have pronated feet, and marched four years, back when the physical demand isn't what it is today. Even with good shoes, I ended up having a lot of problems by the end of my third year and almost couldn't march for finals. I was on a 8-ibuprofen a day habit. My recommendation is to get orthotic insoles as soon as you can. True customs from the doctor are uber pricey. Good Feet is OK for a couple hundred. The ones hanging on the shelf with the odor eaters won't get it done. However, I've found that the Dr. Scholl's custom fit, where you go to a Kiosk in a pharmacy and it measures your feet, work out really well for about $40. Buy two pairs, because they wear out in about 6 months - and daily marching will shorten that time.

    Troopers 2017

    The show seemed a bit low energy in Denver. No standing up at the end, which is a first in a long time in Denver. My emoji review Drums - Brass - Usually , occasionally Visual - Trumpet soloist at the beginning of the show - Lots of changes going in this week.
