  1. Nope. That's not what the activity needs. And "add your name here" is a pretty stupid forum thread, tbh.
  2. I didn't want to dig through 7 pages of responses but... Corps are NOT ALLOWED to use any tarps on any natural-grass surfaces on tour, which includes practice sites and show sites. While rehearsal and shows can be done in lieu of smaller tarps, not sure without being creative how they would rehearse or perform with a full-field tarp, as the tarp would undoubtedly be a huge part of the show design. Just my .02

    Start your own show instead of complaining?

    Dynasty Drums shut down?

    King Ultimate Brass or Kanstul mellos. Or go home.

    Drill was about the least of their problems the last 2 years IMO.

    He's saying that because they beat Music City.

    Agree. Probably best for the activity that Open Class remains more regional and World Class remains national. Allows the younger members to get back to high school on time and such as well. While SCVC, BDB, Legends, Spartans, etc have proven they have the capacity to hang with some of the bigger dogs, I'm not sure I like the idea of Open Class becoming World Class (or trying to).
  8. Talked to an old friend yesterday who marched Pioneer back in the mid 90s. Asked her if she had seen the news of the suspension. She had not. Her response to it was (more or less): "No I hadn't seen it. It doesn't surprise me, because it was the same way back in the 90s. I guess I was too young and dumb to notice it or report it. But I was one-and-done, and chose to stop following DCI after that season, and this exact situation was the reason why." Not surprised in the least.

    Troopers Visual Caption Head resigned, per his FB page.
  10. Apparently it was stolen by a BD member off of the Crown bus at a Regional.
  11. ______________ Corps International ?!?!?
  12. This. It is deceptive to the judges and to the fans. When you see one corps go out and set a microphone up every 5 yards across the front sideline, it's intended to create an illusion that something is there that really isn't. No "range of field" mics, and put a limit to the number of individual mics used.
  13. All this, plus the new Women of DCI movement that was given - among other things - meeting rooms in LOS, meeting times, meetings at other Regionals, suites, etc.
