DCP Fanatic

DCP Fanatic (3/3)



  1. Prelims / Finals Cabs / MBI Bucs / Cabs MBI / Bucs Fusion / Fusion C2 / C2 CV / CV Bush / Bush Hurcs / Gold Sun / Hurcs Gold / Sun Sabers / Govies Govies / Sabers Sun / Sun CT / CT I think with an extra read against their competition, MBI could pull it off. Thats only if the hornline can clean up that score. I think Sabers have come back to reality and Govies take it Finals night. Also really would not surprise me to see a tie between 2nd/3rd in Open. I think it will be that close.
  2. Isnt this an off season topic? C'mon man...
  3. Just curious... How many DCA corps run/support winter lines?
  4. However, the link on that post leads to nothing. For me anyway.
  5. Any DCA show I have been to, I have felt out of place to give an ovation or loud applause. Golf claps seem to be the thing. Now, I have not been to a show for awhile so it could be different now but thats my observation.
  6. But thats DCI. Doesnt really matter what you do in DCA, crowd reaction is going to be minimal either way.
  7. Ill make a full prediction once corps announce class status but... Its going to be very interesting between the top 3 from last year. Can MBI bounce back? Will Cabs threaten for 1st? Will Bucs hold them both off? Also... CV and C2 will be a great battle and it wouldnt surprise me to see one of them threaten the top 3. Class A should be great as well. Id love to see a close battle between Govies and Sabers again!
  8. and coincidentally, neither of those corps are competitive anymore.
  9. Then you lose the incentive for those corps to travel long distance. Sure, its helping spread the DCA brand (which is the argument here) but do you think MBI travels just to be nice? No. They travel to go head to head with corps of their caliber and to get a mid season read by DCA judges. Same can be said for CV. No coincidence that one of these corps is holding strong at the top and the other is on the move. If you take away that DCA show and make them do a DCI regional with few DCA corps and DCI judges... whats that really going to accomplish for their competitive success? Not to mention corps that travel far tend to have holes for the first trip... what kind of message is that going to send the DCI fan base when they watch a corps with 5-10 holes. Im more into the idea of working in an Ohio show at some point. Yes there would need to be creative marketing and there would be risk but its a decent middle ground for corps to meet up mid season. Then again... I might just be selfish in hoping to have a DCA show in my backyard.
  10. Well, they advertise Championships as WORLD so... you would hope they at least consider it National.
  11. Doesnt MBI also run 3 other ensembles (along with the full corps) under that "Incorporated" umbrella? Could explain the large gap between them and other organizations.
  12. TBT is no longer in the DCA circuit. That leaves 4 corps, 3 if Gold cant make the trip.
  13. Right... but what would be the difference between a normal midwest or south show and a regional... all the corps would be the same. Basically any non eastcoast show is already a regional because there are so few shows. Take a look at what corps would be at these so called regionals: South: Gold, CV, Sun Devils, Alliance Midwest: MBI, Chops, Govies, Kilties, CT, High Country, *Lakeshoremen Yes, those are some dang good corps BUT... the only real "ringer" in there for the Midwest is MBI and the only one in the south is CV. People will show up anyway to see them but imagine if Cabs or Bucs made a trip there... I bet more people would be interested in going. I bet you anything that people skip one show to go to one the next week because thats the show MBI is taking a trip to. Is there a huge benefit to the east corps? Not really, but it would be good for every corps at that show and would promote DCA a bit more in those regions, showing it really is a national circuit. (no disrespect to any corps, just using facts that the top Open corps bring in bigger crowds)
