  1. A few months back. Right after the first design meeting they had.
  2. Disappointed with the Infinity members that were drunk on retreat. Save it for the after party if that’s needed. One of their members was throwing up in the back right of the floor after the scores wrapped up.
  3. You’re right! Harder to hear clearly based on each facilty being indoors. Since I’ve taught and/or designed in PIW and PSW for 10+ years, what you hear on the floor 5 feet away from a battery sounds much different in a gym halfway up the bleachers. There’s echo and different environmental factors of each room. So if we REALLY care about understanding how clean they’re playing, then the only option should be to put judges on the floor!
  4. These same kids do WGI with a judge 30 yards away trying to hear them play through an amplified front ensemble and multiple speakers. I definitely agree with you, put drum judges on the floor at WGI!!
  5. It will be so great to watch the world not end because the drum judge is in the front. Finally they will not be diving through members and ignoring the front ensemble 75% of the time.
  6. It’s the code of conduct under “about“ along with the by laws
  7. I’ll support them and not overreact to enforcing a policy that’s easily accessible on their website.
  8. https://www.marchingroundtable.com/eku-marching-arts-research-team/field-percussion-study/
  9. Or they could focus on both like they are doing at these meetings!
  10. Unanimous vote by the instructors for this! More progress towards safety!
  11. Can’t believe they are letting Roman stay involved. I hope they don’t get a penny in donations until he’s completely removed.
  12. I’m not posting names and I’m done discussing. The instrumentation change helped many more corps than the average fan knows. It added a revenue stream throughout the activity that didn’t exist before.
  13. No, not just the top. I was highly involved with a non-top 12 corps at the time that made money annually on their investment 2 years after the switch. That additional revenue stream kept them afloat. The manufacturers also have the incentive to get their equipment into more and more schools.
  14. I would rather not go off topic, but there are so many issues with this statement. Switching to any-key brass helped some corps continue to exist financially. Any Key brass has turned into a profit center for drum corps. After the initial investment, corps have been able to resell to schools and other organizations to MAKE money each year while also putting better instruments in the hands of the members. They were not getting that resell value with G Horns.
  15. DCI needs to step in, but I think it’s time to close the doors.
  16. I wonder how much of that is spent at Basey’s! I think it’s great news. Was this the biggest crowd this year? It definitely looked like it.
  17. Wow, the level of negativity and arrogance of some of the Madison alumni is just ridiculous... I hope all the members and staff of Madison have an incredible final week and that this negativity stays away from them.
  18. And to think that both Jon Vanderkoff and Jim Moore were at Madison. They were given all the freedom they wanted when they moved to Bluecoats.
  19. Please don’t spread false information. Go to rehearsal. Speak to Olivia personally. Let her know that she is lying when she confirms that it is 100% live.
