  1. BAC used to have a show at Southern Connecticut State University back when Tom Spataro (sp?) was still director. I remember it being rained out due to T-storms. We waited a real long time before it was actually called. Well that was the last year for that show...I think they tried open class the next season, but it was poorly attended. Rain outs are obviously a disaster for the Host...I imagine Cadets(YEA) lost a lot due to the mid-show cancellation...It's not like they are rolling around in money right now. I feel bad for THEM as well.
  2. I remember that! BAC was the last corps to perform in the DARK. It was the year they ventured out to Cali. I hope I am remembering the correct show...
  3. Yes...This is a tribute show to that...BAC actually won Nationals in 1964, 1966, and 1967 before the formation of DCI in 1972.
  4. This is what happened according to several of my sources...I'm not blaming them...this is just what happened... Unfortunately, it indeed was the Cavaliers props that dug up the field...specifically the battery ramps on the field off to the left caused the problem. Cavaliers I'm told were seen by stadium officials attempting to replace the dug up grass divots as they finished their show as they were dragging their corps stuff off the field. At least Cavies were trying to fix it...but I don't know if this is anything like having to fix a divot on a golf course...you need to fix the divot within a specified period of time or it's ruined til replaced...
  5. This is not official. It's just a really BAD rumor.
  6. Their show in Lawrence used to be the same night as Friday Night at a-town, but was moved to Thursday...not sure reason now...
  7. I remember doing this show TWICE in one day BITD...once in the early afternoon to qualify to be in the night show...lol
  8. Many times the Saturday show is very competitive at the top...nice to see it happening on Friday....this will be the first time I actually miss the Allentown show live since 1992...I'm kinda bumming about that a bit...
  9. This is usually determined pre-season...soooo
  10. I think the draw should be publicly monitored like the lottery...ahahahahaha
  11. Not related to the thread...I must admit...The Beatles have been stuck in my head too since Saturday...LOL
  12. It is so stuck in my head...not sure if that's a good thing or not...LOL
  13. I wish I could get to see Jersey Surf again live this season...it's one of my favorites this year...
  14. I'm not a fan of that show( just not my taste is all)....but I do like the brass...especially during the ballad...
  15. This is a super nice and awesome acoustic venue for drum corps. Especially because of the great sound you get due to the overhang. The seats are very comfortable as well. I wish I was still living in the Northeast as this was my go-to show when The Cadets started to host there. The Cadets do a really fine job as hosts for this show as well. They usually have a very nice reception (complimentary cheese and cracker platters and fresh fruit and soda) and also parking for VIP ticket holders. I absolutely love it!
  16. I know exactly what you are asking for...I sent an inquiry to Blue Knights last season about this...I followed that page every season for as long as I can remember even before the site was ascending performing arts...honestly I haven't been back to their website since and the suggested DCP for the "graphs" just does not even come close....sorry DCP you are great for a lot of things (rankings etc.)...the graphs themselves are just not the same... This was the response last June... "Thank you for your interest in the Blue Knights Scores page. Due to low interest and limited manpower to maintain it, we have discontinued the Scores page for now. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Feel free to check out this "Scores and Stats" page on Drum Corps Planet: Scores and Stats"
  17. I just want to take this time and say how proud I am with Boston...such a great and exciting live performance both nights this past Friday and Saturday at MTSU and ATL... I have seen this corps perform live (and others) for 27 years now. I have no doubt in my mind this is the best rendition of them in that time-frame. The staff and members really have something to really be proud of no matter the scores and placement. Yes I realize it's a competition, but most of us know breaking into the crème de la crème is no easy task...and honestly they are doing a (bleep) great job at it... The season is not over yet...those that may have written the corps off now to achieve their highest placement...could perhaps be making a error in that judgement...A lot can happen in a couple weeks...I will never underestimate the drive and determination of this drum corps...Never! I am 100% convinced that it is only a matter of time in the very near future for Boston to medal and eventually win a Championship. You are ALL Giants!
  18. That is very admirable. I'm sure that you most-likely donated your time as well.
  19. So that is where I would have been sitting today. Remind me please to not drive or should I say crash a bird(scooter) in the park after the DCI regional show in Atlanta... Wipe-out! ...and my knee out too... In a lot of pain today to say the least.... On the bright side I can at least watch the stream...
  20. My whole body just got goosebumps from that performance BLOOO...that hasn"t happened to me in a real real real long time.
  21. Very strong showing for Boston tonight IMO...that was up a notch since the last time I saw them...
