    Or maybe when an important industry professional that doesn't work for your company and is not your boss but has some implied authority makes a suggestion to you to wear jeans. Or something. You see, DCI is not their boss.

    Since her timeline is dynamic and will change, and not everyone is twitter savvy, here is the relevant YEA/PA AG news, read from the top down.

    On the other hand, they've had some great, um, less cerebral ones as well. 1:14 into this vid.

    No tour for Pioneer in 2019

    I would suspect that DCI has learned during its investigation, which started this summer, that Pioneer Has some limitations or issues with resources that would not allow it to operate a complete season in a manner that is being required. Regardless of who is on the board.

    Pioneer Suspended by DCI

    The term Suspension implies that it is temporary. I suspect the next results could be "Cleared", "Probation" or "Banned." It's a new process so I guess we will all have to learn together.

    Thom didn't go to Star until partially through the 1991 season.

    10 More Years in Indy

    Much easier to sit in the ideal sound pocket on Thursday as well. Lemme know if you ever pull the trigger on this idea.
  10. Bluecoats is one word and my count is 47 ageouts this year.

    10 More Years in Indy

    We took a 2 year old and 1 year old twins this year. But they left right after the Star Spangled Banner.

    Crowd Love at Finals

    Fairly consistent assessment here. Lors of real applause and standing O's in the top 6. Except BD. For some reason, cursory applause and standing O at the end that pretty much everyone gets. It was a good show, so I don't know why. But the crowd was hesitant to go all out for it.
  13. I've been mixing from outside of the performance area for quite awhile. That is simply not an accurate statement regarding BOA. http://www.musicforall.org/images/PDFs/2018/Fall/2018_BOA_Rulebook.pdf
  14. Your statement (like many in this thread) is vague so I might be misunderstanding. "sound has to be controlled by the band member" Do you mean the triggering of the sounds has to be done by the students? (Then for the most part, you are correct. Including DCI.) Or the mixing of the amplification? (This would be mostly incorrect. At least in the midwest and the national circuit that dominates the midwest.)
