  1. Phantom needs to learn how to sustain long tones. Especially the trumpets. I’m sorry, but that was so painful to listen to while they’re sustaining. If they don’t get that cleaned up by prelims, then there is a clear and easy opening for Spirit to walk through. posted from the DrumScorps app
  2. I saw that Crossmen are trying to get the crowd involved in their stomp and clap section. I wonder how much the word got out to the crowd today. posted from the DrumScorps app
  3. The ballad from Academy is definitely one of my favorites of the year. Such a great soloist and arrangement! And I echo what others have said about their uniforms. Nice and sharp. posted from the DrumScorps app
  4. Such a great show from Surf this year! Fun and entertaining, and performed at a quality level! Probably one of the best shows I’ve ever seen from Surf. posted from the DrumScorps app
  5. Loving this Pacific Crest show! So much energy! Regardless if they’re able to gain enough on Colts between tonight and next week that they jump to 15th and edge into the theater broadcast, there’s going to be one REAL good show left out from the theater this year. posted from the DrumScorps app
  6. Troopers unis remind me a lot of the Spirit ones from 2011-2013. They also have a lot more of the baby blue run Spirit does this year, too. posted from the DrumScorps app
  7. Agreed on the gray making it hard to stand out. But at the same time, at least in this day and age of new uniforms every year and not being able to tell who is who if you miss the announcements, at least Genesis is one of those that is somewhat more consistent with color/design than others. I can tell looking at them that this is Genesis without having to ask. posted from the DrumScorps app
  8. I love the staging of that ballad impact for Genesis. I just wish the trumpets weren’t at the top/back so they would have lower voices behind them to listen to so they could blend the moment more. But as a visual picture, it’s very creative and I love it! posted from the DrumScorps app
  9. Music City has a nice show and all, but it just doesn’t pack the same punch as last year. I loved what they did last year and it was always fun to watch. Today’s run seemed kind of flat compared to last week, in my opinion. If Genesis has a good run, they might be able to pull away from Music City a bit. posted from the DrumScorps app
  10. I assume they get a penalty. No? Why would they get penalized for traffic? That’s not anything in your control, even if you plan extra time to get there early and it’s still that bad. posted from the DrumScorps app
  11. Cavies were also 4th in 2009. No corps was a medalist for all 10 years in the decade.
  12. As much as I hate to say it (because I was really hoping to see Mandarins (non-standstill), BD, and was the correct call by DCI and the corps. Radar looked bad, and then when the rain really picked up, I hope everyone had already loaded up so they weren’t still loading in that rain. posted from the DrumScorps app
  13. Last tile the corps was in the Midwest this time of year, 2013, I believe, members I talked to said the crowds were underwhelming compared to those on the New England or west coast swings. I wonder if that’s the case again this year and if that’s having any impact? I also wonder if there’ll be a difference with the scores going back to back with Phantom instead of several corps apart. They were only .2 behind just a few days ago! posted from the DrumScorps app
