  1. We always stay at the Staybridge adjacent to the Stadium. Free shuttle (and knowledgeable drivers) for trips downtown. Morning and evening buffets. Carolina Crown hotel so rooms will be booked early. We are there solely for the competition, so being close to the venue is a priority.
  2. That's what I figured, too. I think I have a reminder setup on my Ticketmaster account.
  3. On sale Monday: Arrgh! No ATL tix?
  4. I miss this Corps! They weren't afraid to go their own way in regards to pit instrumentation. I found that refreshing. (But -- "old school" can still get my attention.)
  5. Similar question. Sprung for the Super 3 seats at Finals last year for this season. Now wondering when ATL tix go on sale.
  6. I'm hearing through the rumor mill that Spirit is dropping their cymbal line for the upcoming season. I hope it's not true as they've had some fantastic lines in the past. I think they've even won some I&E's. Anyone else hearing the same rumor?
  7. Always a big Troopers fan, but only met Fred in passing. Last time was just before a performance in Indy. He was walking up the stairs to the staff section to watch his Corps. I was on the aisle and of course recognized "the hat". I said "Go Troop!" as he passed by. Got a nice pat on the back. Happy Retirement!
  8. I think you're correct. Got my email notification today. Section 139 Row 19.
  9. Same here. So this year I decided I was going to take care of The Wife and myself first. We waited too long last season with those same questions -- and wound up with not the greatest of seats.
  10. I put in my order (first time for me) while at Indy. I just got an email today about placing an order, so I guess they haven't processed anything yet.
  11. They asked where we sat -- in ticketed seats, moved up, moved down, moved closer to 50, or moved further from 50.
  12. For those who've purchased Finals tix, but aren't getting the survey: This year's survey email had a BIG link to opt out of future surveys and a small button underneath to start the survey. I don't recall previous email formats, but could you have clicked the opt out link by mistake in a previous year? (I almost did this year.) Does DCI have a way to opt back in?
  13. Got the survey, but hadn't looked at it yet. I suspect some of these questions come from the Indy Visitors Bureau and are driven by business requests.
  14. Just saw on her FB page that guard caption head Tracy Carter won't be back at Music City for 2020.  Also, Chris DeBerry, the percussion caption head said he is taking a much needed break and won't be back in 2020.  Hearing anything from your daughter about the 2020 team?

      Hi!  I haven't heard anything yet, but I'll ask.  She's been busy as a guard tech/MM with Southern Knights and guard instructor for a local HS, so I don't think she's looking that far ahead. I'll let you know.
