  1. Exactly!!! I was reading this with a facial expression of wtf until your post! I’d add OK, IL and GA/FL to the mix for second tier behind TX and IN
  2. DCI should issue a lifetime ban IMO -- it is well within their power to do so, it would likely require a majority of member corps, it would certainly send the correct message of "zero tolerance" which MUST be the standard
  3. they seem to agree as they communicated recruiting additional members as a key goal it is still a big improvement over the old days of a small panel of Hopkins lackeys - I will judger them by the results - solid financial footing will be a good first step
  4. Same thing in a lot of other news sources, so yes I tend to think that it’s accurate
  5. lots of positive news gives me hope for 2021 DCI
  6. well I've been tested several times, no copay and as stated all the biggest insurers have pledged coverage, many with no copay, government working for entirely free for Americans who cannot afford or are at higher risk https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/16/coronavirus-vaccine-will-be-free-for-some-americans-us-officials-say.html
  7. the President got all the largest health insurance firms to make it covered no copay https://www.modernhealthcare.com/insurance/us-expects-insurers-cover-covid-vaccine-without-copays#:~:text=U.S. officials said Tuesday they,are developed and become available.
  8. currently federal scientist are working with the states to prep, lots of things needed as you can imagine sub-70 freezers etc: https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2020/09/02/909014567/cdc-asks-states-to-plan-for-potential-vaccine-distribution-starting-in-late-octo
  9. there's a vaccine protocol in place and adopted, essentially 130 million americans up first in three phases starting with first responders/medical providers, high-risk then elderly in care facilities, essential workers involved in food production are also in this group: it's based on https://www.hhs.gov/vaccines/national-vaccine-plan/index.html Health care professionals (incl. LTCF staff) public health closed temporary mass vaccination clinics + potential for mobile clinics Essential workers (specifics TBA – public health closed temporary mass vaccination clinics + potential for
  10. Thanks for the obvious, phase three trials underway
  11. The protocol will change once vaccine are released and proven effective
  12. maybe the news gets better with time, there are 70- vaccines in trial after all!
  13. The corps already “downsized” and there’s zero logic in abandoning the idea of 2021 at this time, March or so is plenty early
  14. No one knows what it is going to be like next May
  15. Let’s face it no one knows we’re all learning on the fly In spring the cdc was saying warm weather should help it go away now the cdc is saying there’s zero evidence that masks actually help there’s a ton oafs politicization and Monday morning QB going on / can’t we just come together as far as dci I really believe we need an effective and safe vaccine to have a 2021 tour JMO
  16. my friend tested positive, hospital gave him two more test to verify = three "cases"
  17. a lot of inflated data, esp case count, here in MD estimated to be 40% inflated "cases" are positive tests not individuals
  18. november but those can be handled online easily - most of the corps are almost full for 2021 with contracted 2020 members who carried over their contract an in-person January or February brass camp is probably the next big hurdle
  19. Not just me the fans all season in 93 reacted the same, we all get our own take but not our own facts. The 93 cadets show was insanely popular and exciting to watch and experience live.star 93 certainly had moments but cadets were just non stop- If guard had been scored in a modern sense cadets would have won by more imo
  20. Oh I’m sure there were hundreds of great options competing for this streaming business ! Not
  21. I was really just giving my opinion on design- very forgettable imo I really missed the groove
  22. It was the most compelling design but that cadets corps was a GE beast and would have won by more under a current system including guard in the score - that cadets guard was insanely great. Live the show was absolutely amazing
