  1. Saw my son in the Crown clip in "e=mc2". I'm happy!!!
  2. I'm wondering if those are guard folks who want to participate. IDK.
  3. "He just has to kill Will." Haha! PR and Spartacus.
  4. 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!
  5. SOA and X-Men combine for a virtual mass brass session.
  6. 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
  7. Not only are schools nixing Fall sports, but Stanford is using the virus to kill 11 "minor" varsity sports outright. They can continue as "clubs", but must be totally self-sustaining. I can see bands not far behind. I've lived through this before with the NC State Fencing team. It's always about the money, not the opportunity or even the strength/prestige of the program. Sigh! https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/29429478/stanford-cut-11-varsity-sports-cites-pandemic-breaking-point?platform=amp
  8. I will say -- True, and leave it at that so as to not hijack this thread with a grits vs hash browns debate. 🙂
  9. Not much you can do with hash browns -- salt/pepper, maybe ketchup (Yech!). But grits -- butter or red eye gravy or milk/sugar (either hot or cold).
  10. She says working with SOA they left on tour with enough grits to last the entire season.
  11. The Wife just started cooking with PC and when the tour headed east she finally found her favorite breakfast food at a local grocery -- grits. She cooked up a "mess of 'em" (as we say) and had them out for breakfast. Yes -- lots of puzzled looks from the California folks, but there were some brave souls who tried them and got hooked. The staff, too.
  12. I wonder if that is a guard or front ensemble member who wanted to get in on the fun.
  13. There is supposed to be a video on this link. Can't seem to make it work. Sorry!
  14. If I recall correctly, it was this way for Pacific Crest. The daughter stayed with the family of a PC member.
  15. A lot of fans in Atlanta and other regional sites (where all the corps compete) would likely miss their only opportunity to see all the Corps together if they couldn't travel to Allentown or Indy.
  16. YES! I was VERY fortunate to chauffeur Bill and members of his band when they had a brass clinic and concert at NC State BITD. Great group of guys. I was a big fan since "Get It On" and am still a fan. Gone too soon.
  17. Just got my email for DCI Super 3 Tickets. Options were to donate or roll over for next year.
  18. DCA also cancels: http://dcacorps.org/cancellation-of-drum-corps-associates-2020-season/
  19. Too late. INT has already been declared the winner. It's the ONLY reasonable choice.
  20. Wondering how many Corps just push the 2020 shows to 2021? And how many have better ideas given the current situation? Hopefully, this will just be something to reflect on come Fall camps.
  21. We usually do our Corps donations on "Giving Tuesday". We might need to do this a lot earlier this year. I'm praying our budget allows this. The Wife's comment: So sad. Since 2008, our whole Summer revolved around Drum Corps, a lot of it volunteering on tour. I don't know what we'll do this year.
  22. Miss March Madness? You're in luck! SOA has a bracket challenge to pick the best photos over the years. There are two polls starting today. Here's a link to the first. You should be able to find the other on their timeline. Be safe out there!
