  1. I'm having issues with calling 23 year old adults "kids". I dunno, the whole reality thing. Has life, parenting and our educational system failed this hard? Perhaps, marching band isn't the real issue.
  2. IMHO the best judging system was a little of both. 1984?
  3. 1. I think you need to get out more and see the corps as they are. Realistically, meaning reality, it would a lot over all the member corps. 2. Ya, what they could learn may be something other than what you may think. Again, that's why we have DCA for adults. 3. Um, life is not a "non-argument". Reality of pandemic realities vs marching band wants is NOT a non argument in fact I don't see any argument (and you have yet to present one) that would even come close to supporting what you desire. I can't even imagine the amount of background checks and insurance these corps
  4. Not really an argument a reality. Either this stays an youth activity for young people or it becomes DCA. You got to have rules. The maturity between a 16 year old and a 23 is just too much IMHO. Seriously, someone could join the Marines, do their 4 years (go overseas and fight a war) and then march in this situation. Speaking of staff and members, their have been enough issues with that as it is; we don't need to make things worse. Either this is a youth activity or it isn't. Either we install the value of life lessons and reality or we keep people from reality and growing up. DCI has
  5. Growing up is hard. Welcome to being adults. Agree 100%. Not sure if I can really accept 16-23 (even younger) year old kids/adults travelling together.
  6. I hope they agree #$#@ happens and it's time to grow up. I know it's a crappy situation but at the end of the day it's just marching band and this is a pandemic.
  7. Hot, a lot of bus breakdowns, Romeo and Juliet was a good show. :)
  8. Is it inner city? Otherwise the virtue signalling.....
  9. I wouldn't hold my breath. The same people that scream about limitations and leveling the playing field are the ones virtue signalling. HOW many times have we been over placement vs corps income....and its never addressed. People like their elite little clubs and say all the right things but never do the right things.
  10. Ya, well I will never subscribe to them ever again. I will do everything in my power to warn people. Sad.
  11. Not worth my time unfortunately. I already have like hours into this. I mean they actually fought the credit card company. Personally, I think we have a class action lawsuit in the making on fraud alone. Bait and switch (whether intentional or not is not legal).
  12. Ya virtue signalling/mind reading run amok. People that are already decent human beings don't need to virtue signal. Just saying.
