  1. Ah, but as my Junior High typing teacher always pointed out: Is that 80 CORRECT words per minute? She always made us count the words and do the calcs during speed tests. And this was on old manual typewriters... Uphill both ways... In the snow.
  2. And won't that push the age-out ceremony a bit later? Odd for me, too.
  3. I talked with the staff briefly yesterday after they performed. They said PC was caught in the rain during warmups, so they went on and did the best they could. Which was pretty awesome. Hoping for just as great tonight!
  4. Also highest score in PC's history. We ran into the PC staff at Harry & Izzy's. They said they were in Military Park getting ready to warm up when the deluge hit. So -- they went on with no warm up. What will they do tomorrow WITH a proper warm up?
  5. Glad someone else knows what it is. Haven't seen one in years, but I don't get out much anymore.
  6. Took intermission to drop by the DCI booth and get tix for 2020. The nice padded comfy seats. No more waiting to the last minute for nosebleeds.
  7. Noticed Gold is marching some euphoniums. Didn't have this thread this season -- we usually bring it up.
  8. The stadium/DCI/Tom Blair has a foam sound enclosure for any of the Corps that bring generators. It appears to work pretty good.
  9. Moved down front to see Southwind. Awesome!!! I REALLY want to see this show again tomorrow.
  10. @kevingamin nerdy tech question: blogging from smartphone, tablet, or laptop? Thanks as always!!!
  11. And she's still working on the mixer. Not sure if it's fixed and just running sound now or not. Sitting outside speakers.
  12. I love the Les Stentors show -- live vocalists and nice solos. Sounded like they played an old Crown number. (Just started back on this page.) Edit: Danzon #2. Plus Liebertango (sp?) the Son played on his recital.
  13. Had to give it a sad tag. That's why I try to watch the early Prelims shows.
  14. It's PRELIMS day!!! Let's all get behind Crown! What better way than to watch the excitement that is Matt Harloff jumping in the brass circle during warmups. (Sorry if this has been posted here before -- just saw it, thought it was cool. Has very high GE and Music scores.)
  15. (I give up -- I tried quoting your predictions, but then somehow erased them in my reply and now DCP won't display them anymore.) Crown takes Bronze, Spirit makes Finals, and PC ends up it's highest at 15th -- I can get behind that.
  16. I think it was ATL last year we waited too long to get good seats, so we were on around the 15 or so. The seats were angled so we got a decent view, but we were definitely outside some Corps' speakers. General impressions: too often I could hear the pit (from the speaker) above the brass when the brass was on the 50 aiming for the press box. There were a few brass features on our side (side 2) which were wonderful. Can't recall much else. Sorry.
  17. Yes -- it's the "Where's Waldo?" phenomenon as mentioned elsewhere on the Forum. ($1 to the kitty as I don't recall who said it first.)
  18. CorpsScores says Southwind got Most Improved. @CorpsScores: â‘¢ #DCI2019 #DCIOpenFinals Spartans-Brass, Guard, Visual, GeneralEffect Legends-Percussion Southwind-MostImproved Battalion-DirectorOfYear
