    My order got processed late yesterday afternoon. Had to choose different seats this year (sat in back row of 141 for last three years).  It sounds like they may have made the top 4 or 5 rows of the middle three sections (139, 140, and 141) Sponsor/Friends of DCI seats.  Highest row that was available in any of those sections was row 19. 

    I think you're correct.  Got my email notification today.  Section 139 Row 19.

    I never know how many people are going with me, and who needs tickets, until spring (family of 7). I have all these questions about who will be in the corps, working for the corps, staying home, etc... 😳 It's complicated...

    So Super 3 packages are right out. 

    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.

    Did they ask any seat poacher questions on the survey?  Because I have a good story.  And I can’t remember if I told it or not because I’m old. 

    We have it down to science how we see every corps over three days.  We rarely deviate from the schedule.   We came back to our seats after a little break on Thursday and of course, someone is sitting there. Jim says you’re in our seats. He responds that he “just wants to watch this corps before he moves”.  Jim says I don’t care where you watch this corps but you’re not watching them in these seats. I was lmao.  “I just want to watch this one corps”.  I had to go to the bathroom later to see if I had stupid tattooed on my forehead. 

    They asked where we sat -- in ticketed seats, moved up, moved down, moved closer to 50, or moved further from 50.

  4. 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?

    Because football is the opposite of drum corps.  For instance, they changed headgear from optional to mandatory; drum corps did the reverse.

    Football -- Sometimes if you move, you get penalized. 

    Drum Corps -- If you don't move, you get penalized.

    Football -- The guards don't carry weapons and often have flags thrown their way.

    Drum Corps -- The Guard is heavily armed and often throw flags, sometimes to each other.

    And the obvious:

    Football: You get paid to play.

    Drum Corps: You pay to play.

    Hmmm ... new thread?

    I’ll go one. Further. I wish they would become a southern jazz corps. They need an identity, as does every group, and what they did this year, while interesting and challenging, Felt sloppy and not very focused. I don’t think 2019 is the direction for success.

    I totally disagree.  Spirit did this already and it didn't quite work as folks wished. After placing 11th in 2013, they changed direction with "Magnolia" in 2014, placing 17th.  "Georgia" in 2016 placed 21st.

    They are making their way back to Finals. Let them find their own way.

    I have just applied the most recent update to the system, now that things have settled down a bit.  

    Let's see if the update resolves the issues you've experienced .... otherwise, I'll have to report the issue.



    Actually -- it's me.  A while back I added Firefox Focus as a content blocker to Safari to block those pop up ads which cannot be closed.  While that appears to be working well, it also appears to be messing with some embedded content. When I temporarily disabled it, I can see the above link like I used to.

    I will see if there is a setting where I can whitelist some sites. Otherwise, I'll live with it.

    And when he does leave Crown can just go ride the Disney monorail all day with Klesch driving and Harloff on the mic in the back!

    I miss the days when you could actually ride in the front car. The Wife and I were going to a park restaurant for our Anniversary (wearing our Anniversary buttons) and a cast member ushered us up front.

  10. Using DCP in Safari/iPhone.

    I've noticed recently (oh -- past several weeks) when I paste a link to a FB post/article, it's not expanded like previously.

    Previously, it would expand to a picture of the page. You could click on it and go to the original post.

    Now it just gives you the title text. It may provide a link, but I haven't got anything to work or it just goes to the "home" page of the group that made the post.

    I tried the following link in a text msg and it expanded as it used to do here on DCP.  So, I don't think FB changed, but can't be sure. 

    Let me know if you need more info. Thx!

    For the corps not previously mentioned:

    • SCV has a "become a member" section permanently built into their website menu format.
    • Carolina Crown promises audition info coming first of September.
    • Boston Crusaders have a permanent "audition" section on their site with an interest form you can fill out, even though registration info is not yet available.
    • Blue Knights website immediately splashes a "register today!" graphic, soliciting interest in their 2020 corps.
    • There is an "audition" button on Blue Stars home page.
    • Mandarins website directs interested parties to their Facebook 2020 interest group.
    • First of rotating Crossmen graphics says "2020 registration now live".
    • Phantom Regiment home page has a big "Looking for audition information?  Click Here" button.

    I think it is safe to say that Cadets are not the only corps currently recruiting for 2020.

    As are Open Class Corps. I saw a Southwind FB post about 2020 auditions. Came out the day after Finals
