  1. Slow down there. Kevin and Mike are joining on as consultants. My guess is they might spend some time during the winter camps and a few days here and there on the road, but their primary role will be to work with the actual design tip as a second opinion.
  2. Ryan and Matt are both fantastic educators and arrangers. Scouts are in good hands with them at the helm.
  3. The Rennicks have been on the Troopers design team for several years now. This is nothing new. They are still writing for SCV and leading that percussion team. They merely write for Troopers, and attend maybe a few rehearsals.
  4. It's not Mike Jackson and his team going to Mandarins...
  5. Most also pay next to nothing, if not nothing for their uniforms and equipment. The top probably 6 or so don't pay for much and what they do pay for they get VERY generous discounts.
  6. I believe for the most part, the designers keep the shows since they are their shows. Many designers will alter a show to be played by a HS marching band and put it out for sale after the season.
  7. Looks like Pat Seidling is leaving as the A corps director also.
  8. The first of the staff changes... Jim Wunderlich was feeling content. 5 hrs · A little life update… It’s been a fantastic 12-year blur as the arranger for the Blue Devils FE. I’ve had the privilege to work with members that sacrifice everything, and with an amazingly talented staff (sorry, no shoutouts) that helps shape them year after year…all lifelong friends to me. At home, I am super stoked that Eileen now has a classroom to call her own. After 4 years driving to Anaheim due to lack of teaching jobs in SoCal, and subsequently raising Chloe for 3 years at home…now…here we are! Eileen is the backbone of our family (I am just a worker drone). I love her dearly, and I couldn’t be happier for her now that she gets to do what she set out to do 8+ years ago. Sacrificing all along the way. That being said, it’s time for me to focus more on family life starting the summer of 2018. Writing for the Blue Devils FE has been incredibly rewarding, but it’s time to pass the role on to another lucky human being. Thank you to all the wonderful souls that helped me grow in so many ways. It’s been an honor
  9. They had a floor last year as well. Last year they were in their dress red/whites so they couldn't do as much visually. This year they really took it to a new level for them.
  10. You want the smaller drum sound and weight, but you want a 6-pack instead of quints and the primary drums are the same size?
  11. That is indeed a metronome app. He's checking tempos.
  12. Why should it be the corps responsibility to secure synch rights? The corps aren't producing the DVD's and videos for sale, DCI is. It's my understanding that DCI has always taken on the responsibility of securing synch rights for corps show.s
  13. Chuck Naffier announced on Facebook today that he won't be back with Colts next season.
