  1. I seem to recall DCI has been bitten in the past with "timing" issues like this -- a product owns the rights to a tune for the duration of their ad campaign and prevents DCI from using it on its videos. Wasn't "New York State of Mind" in this category? (I may be totally misremembering -- it's early and pre-coffee.)
  2. I found out around the middle of last season the Fire TV app Flo Sports also shows Flo's DCI events. It worked pretty well for me last year. This year I added a Bose sound bar which adds adds a little more bass. Don't know if Samsung TVs have Flo as a native app or not -- I'll need to check. (The Fire TV is on my office Panasonic.) Looking forward to this season!
  3. On Facebook, Crown says Jim Coates is still the Exec Director/CEO. This is for Corps Director. I (like others) want to know the difference between the job descriptions. Did Jim do both jobs?
  4. We were at Disney World for Christmas and by chance wore Crown, PC, and Cavies shirts on the same day. We were hoping to see/talk with other Drum Corps fans/families, but only talked to a Glassmen couple and we saw a Phantom Regiment shirt. I seem to recall more DCI folks in previous years. Probably no correlation to anything.
  5. Waiting for the John Cage jokes in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...
  6. 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.
  7. That's what I figured, too. I think I have a reminder setup on my Ticketmaster account.
  8. On sale Monday: Arrgh! No ATL tix?
  9. 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.)
  10. Similar question. Sprung for the Super 3 seats at Finals last year for this season. Now wondering when ATL tix go on sale.
  11. 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?
  12. 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!
