    Caption Awards

    I'm neither agreeing or disagreeing with your position. Just a few questions and comments... How long has averaging caption awards taken place? I heard for at least 10 years, but have no confirmation of that. Why did the corps directors vote to average caption awards? I ask only because it seems sometimes rules are put in place because something happened a season or two before that precipitated that change.

    I'm taking about the creative process...does not matter what something developed into...so unless you were a fly on the wall during that process ...then believe what you want I guess...in the end does it really matter?...they created two years of great shows....I could care less if the inspiration came out of a cracker jack box....lol

    I am not speculating...this came right from the designers mouths...

    I may be wrong but I heard the inspiration for Wicked Games came from MT...in almost exactly the same way you just described in your post...

    This is true. It was the piece "Amazing Grace" that kicked off BAC's show last season...that piece was the thread that tied the whole show together...

    Please don't hold me to this...BUT I seem to recall in 2014 during the TV/movie broadcast the Bluecoats artistic director stating that's how the show was designed. The reason I recall is it was in stark contrast to Boston doing the complete opposite. Perhaps I'm remembering incorrectly. edit: I just read above posts. Looks like I was remembering correctly.

    Caption Awards

    I'd love to see a 4-peat. One down only 3 to go... Too early? ...haha clarifying: titles/not captions

    No. It's all about relationship building. For those that may be poo-pooing the new artistic director before he even gets started, I'm sure that with his decades of experience and contacts he's built some very long and lasting relationships. Give the Scouts a chance to turn themselves around.

    It is my understanding that SOME corps start with the music first...but I haven't been involved in the creative process..so I'm just going by things I've heard before...

    I'm not speaking about anyone specific. I don't recall actual staffers being so touchy about this thread in the recent past. Have we crossed a new threshold?

    I will never forgot that tragic day like so many others. I lost people I knew that day as well who had families they left behind. It was one of the saddest days of my life. I also personally had specific plans to be in Battery Park that morning to meet a good friend of mine, but for some reason I overslept and missed my train. I was actually mad at myself for missing the train until I turned on the TV and witnessed this horrible tragedy unfold in front of my eyes. WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
  16. All the sensitivity training in the world is not going to solve this problem. The corps director needs to resign and then the healing process can begin. PERIOD.

    It looks like the worse may be behind the cadets...they seemed to have weathered the storm...their future looks brighter than a few months ago...here's hoping their path continues to be an upward trajectory for 2019 and beyond...
  18. I'm very surprised you are having a hard time getting this done. Several years ago I had mine converted from 1990. I did not have a problem, but this might of been before all the current copyright hoopla. I don't remember what company I used, but let me check my records. It is worth a shot.

    2019 Madison Scouts!

    You can't tell me with a STRAIGHT FACE...That there is not one person that watched LIVE Madison Scouts '95 OR '99 and was NOT blown away. Honestly, a lot of the stuff performed these days is a real snooze fest...not everything...but A LOT...It is what it is though...BUT I can always find something I like in just about any show... Perhaps entertained was not the word...a show that gets me to jump out of my seat...very few corps have done that to me in recent memory sans The Cadets and SCV....but the MS actually were one that for many years brought that RAW EMOTION to the table...

    SO WHAT....I want to be entertained...I wouldn't even care where they placed..I don't think that EVERY change these last 40 or more years has been for the better...

    Yes...but the groundwork was set PRIOR to that...which allowed that to happen...but I see your point...
