  1. Art, Please read my post again. I am saying the PRICE is too high for a Drum Corps show.The fact that we are not playing really doesn't matter.The admission price is way too high for any Drum Corps show. If my friends & family happen to be in town ,we might attend the show. Just isn't worth a special trip to pay that kind of money for a show. I and my family have attended the Plymouth show since it started in 1996.We have always supported it . I did not play in the show until 2001.The price used to be reasonable. I didn't say anything about "weak links" . In your post you didn't seem to understand why the show doesn't sell out anymore. All I am saying is that I think it is the high admission price. NOT the quality of the Corps that play. Very sorry if i hurt anyones feelings. Mike D.
  2. Dale & Art, The Kilties were a huge hit at Plymouth too. The show was sold out back in the early days. Over the years as the price of the admission went up & up .The volume of the crowd has gone down . I think the price of the tickets is out of line. We used to all buy tickets for ourselves & family members . Now that we don't play the show anymore ,its just not worth the price of admission. Just my opinion ,but I don't know many people that pay to go to the Plymouth Show anymore. mike D.
  3. No More Frenchie for Me. sold it to a guy in LA. Sold my Mell. too .Retired from Corps after 47 years. Might see Old friends at a show this summer. All the Best, Mike D.
