  1. Hearing there may be about 20 bands at this weekend's competition.
  2. Looks like the Peach State Marching Festival (one of the largest in GA) will be held next Saturday. I haven't seen a list of participating bands yet. https://www.romebands.net/peach-state
  3. Are we interested in Indoor Percussion on this thread?
  4. Nothing official. The Daughter is a Color Guard instructor at a local HS, so they've been performing. I'm wondering if it's just up to each school district.
  5. At least for the last two Fridays, HS bands in NW Georgia have been able to perform at halftimes. No info about the rest of the state.
  6. I used to watch it all the time. But as it became more about promoting celebrities and less about bands and "the common folk", I lost interest.
  7. So -- This year, Macy's Parade will be an unabashed shill for Broadway and other celebrities? Do I have that right? If so, I think I'll pass (Sorry! It's BC -- before coffee.)
  8. I just found something new. It looks like it now takes two presses on an object to perform an action. Example: In the World Class discussion, I wanted to view the now closed Site Changes thread. I pressed on the star beside the topic title, but nothing happened except the title turned blue. I pressed again and the thread opened. This also happens on the link at the bottom of the page to return to the topic listing. It's like: press to select, then press to execute. Please let me know if you need more info.
  9. I got a pop up notification when I first loaded the DCP site (about John's quote of my post) and I can see the notification "Bell" on a toolbar that wasn't there earlier. Great job!!!
  10. After the recent DCP site update, I'm not seeing the icon that tells me someone reacted to my post or quoted it. This is on the mobile version (iPhone/Safari). It still is displayed on the desktop version (Windows 10/Chrome). I do miss this old feature.
  11. I see those, but I usually get a notification when someone reacts or quotes one of my posts. I got one when you quoted my first post when I viewed the site on my computer, but nothing when viewed on my iPhone/Safari.
  12. The look is cleaner, but I'm not seeing the shortcut to see notifications -- likes or quotes on posts.
  13. I got a notice from Apple that my subscription to DrumScorps has been discontinued. I hope this is just temporary -- both for the app and DCI.
  14. As of the time of this post, DCI has raised $191,357 from 1313 supporters.
  15. Last I checked the Peach State Marching competition held in Rome GA was still on for October 24.
  16. As of 10:20 EDT Sunday, it's still on YouTube.
  17. Saw my son in the Crown clip in "e=mc2". I'm happy!!!
  18. I'm wondering if those are guard folks who want to participate. IDK.
  19. "He just has to kill Will." Haha! PR and Spartacus.
  20. At last year's Finals, we signed up for the 2020 FDCI/Super 3 Package tickets, so this year would have been our first in DCI seats. Previously, we purchased Crown, Spirit, or PC block seats. We would have driven up yesterday and probably gotten into Indy around 6-7 PM. We would have been in Lucas Oil pretty early today as we like to see some of the early Open Class Corps (especially when Racine Scouts still fielded a Corps). We would have been in Section 139 Row 19 Seats 5-6. We would have ..... sigh!
  21. SOA and X-Men combine for a virtual mass brass session.
  22. Just FYI: So far, nothing for Georgia. The Daughter just finished the first week of HS band camp in NW GA (she's the flute and color guard instructor). And I'm hearing the band at the HS close to where I live practicing. So, I guess they will be performing this season until "someone" says they won't. And the Ohio Valley Conference announced that only players, coaches, and officials can be on the field at games. No bands; no cheerleaders. So, Jax State Marching Southerners decided they will split into 3 bands positioned around the stadium. And you thought they were loud stuck over in the
