  1. Their hornline's tone is so warm that they are the sole cause of global warming. They once made a DVD of a performance, and it sold more than ten millions copies before they announced they would make it. Their lead trumpet once challenged the entire lead section of the Blue Devils. Every dog in the world was deaf before he put the horn to his face. They once had a bad show, just to see what it was like. They still scored 100. They march 151 22-year-olds, and it is still legal. This is the most interesting corps in the world, and no judge has ever seen their show without committing suicide because of their own inadequacy, even when Chuck Norris was judging every caption.
  2. Wilkie did not complete the season with Surf last year, he was gone before the "second tour," so it is unlikely he will be back on board. Interesting to see if there will be a more full time Caption Head that works under Gino or if he will be the man, so to speak. There could be a system that works like the Surf percussion section, where Rich Hammond filled the role of "Head of Percussion Education" last year.
  3. I was in Indy for championships, and I can tell you that the sound had 100% to do with where you sat. Being a current corps member I didn't actually have a designated seat, and with moving around/being kicked out of different seats I experienced many different parts of the stadium. For the end of the semifinals I sat on the 50 and 15 rows back from the front side and the sound was phenomenal, almost better than any outdoor stadium I was in all year. That being said, there were places I sat that had some of the worst acoustics I heard ever. One section was 344, on the side 1 endzone and mid way up. It was actually hard to hear alot of the corps there. Really what I found was that the closer you are to the 50 the better, even in the nosebleeds the seats on the 50 were pretty nice. Once you hit about the 35 the sound really got funky. If you have to sit on the outsides the sound is alot better toward the front. That may not be what everyone else experienced, but that's what I got. Hope this was helpful if your looking for tickets next year.

  5. Don't want to be the one to burst the pioneer bubble but....... Surf hasn't recieved a score since the 6th.... (and then they were barely a point behind crossmen) oops.
  6. Everyone loves water ice! Especially after a hot day of rehearsal... (some people call it polish ice or italian ice) -Nice Thread! P.S. It's a great treat for the corps, and no one will have thirty buckets of it in their freezers that they need to get rid of, which is the risk already stated with ice cream.
