  1. I guess I'm not sure what the membership structure system would look like... so far the discussion has been compared to the Major/Minor leagues of Baseball... Is DCI asking that WC groups create a required feeder program of their choice? Like, each parent organization start up a SoundSport/DLBattle/WGI ensemble/OC corps of their choice to demonstrate that they have a more solid year-to-year funding source?
  2. Just wondering... are Cavaliers 98 opener CG using 7' poles? And... 42" rifles EXIST?!?!? Whoa...
  3. Yeah, man. I love the discipline. Kudos to that kid. ...of course, the clip ends rather quickly... maybe he topples over after a few seconds.
  4. This is straying too far off topic, buuuuttt..... Lots of talent in a totally untapped market for DCI corps, imo. Maybe some of these Scouts can be Scouts, yaknowwudumsayin? πŸ˜„
  5. Yup. Rewatched it just now and literally fell in love all over again. My wife, sitting next to me, thinks I'm silly. πŸ™‚ It's okay, I'll own it. Cadets 07 is so stinkin' enjoyable.
  6. I know you're talking about competition here, but dictating the course of the activity probably shouldn't be a goal for this year (imo). Recently, my students have been gaga over Madison, Seattle Cascades, Phantom... all of whom presented very traditional shows this year. 9th place with a fantastic show is better for recruiting (from what I've seen on the ground) than a corps medaling with a dense art-piece.
  7. My best student ran up to me yesterday and said, "DID YOU SEE THE NEWS?!? I'm doing Cadets and that's it." He had been considering Crown and Jersey Surf. Bocook, Sacktig, and Aungst have a bigger following than you might give them credit for... πŸ™‚
  8. only 2.75 hours until corps can announce stuff!! πŸ˜„
  9. Well, now I need to go to London. ...when band's over... ... poop.
  10. Gotta say, I truly enjoyed PR this year. πŸ™‚ I officially don't care about placement any more (that that I did much to begin with). Seattle Cascades, Phantom, Madison... I just love these corps. Can't wait for next year!
  11. This. I also think of Blue Knights in this situation. Every stinkin' year, they get me teared up. They've developed an aesthetic and that leg kick thing... whatever their uniform, I can always tell it's them. Even if Cadets stay in 9th perpetually from now on, I'm hoping for a strong 'Cadets' identity that is consistent year to year.
