    2019 Show Ideas

    My suggestion for The Cavaliers is the same as it is every year: Give us a show called "Deus Ex Machina" with all original music.
  3. 2018 marks the tenth year that Finals have been held in Lucas Oil Stadium. Now that Finals have concluded, what are everyone's favorite shows from each corps to be performed inside the Oil Can? Santa Clara Vanguard: Babylon Blue Devils: Cabaret Voltaire Bluecoats: Metropolis: The Future is Now Carolina Crown: For the Common Good Boston Crusaders: S.O.S. The Cavaliers: Mad World The Cadets: 12.25 Blue Stars: Where the Heart Is Blue Knights: Because Mandarins: Life Rite After Phantom Regiment: Juliet Crossmen: Fragile Spirit of Atlanta: Crossroads: We Are Here Colts: Dark Side of the Rainbow The Academy: (RE) Madison Scouts: Reframed Troopers: The New Road West Pacific Crest: Here's to the Ones Who Dream Music City: Hell on Wheels: The Final Journey of Casey Jones Oregon Crusaders: Nevermore Genesis: Art of Darkness Seattle Cascades: Set Free Jersey Surf: Bridgemania Pioneer: The Corps Prayer

    DCI World Champs Prelims - Aug 9, 2018

    As a Packers fan, Cutler was my favorite Bear. He was so good at throwing to our defense!

  10. Correct; or another way to look at it is that Boston has to score 0.108 points above the score of The Cavaliers to overtake them. If The Cavaliers tie or score higher than Boston, there is no way for them to be overtaken in the Prelims rankings.
  11. Sure thing! For the higher placed group, I took the sum of the scores from San Antonio and Atlanta and added 100 to them to represent a perfect score at Allentown. Then I divided that by 3. Once I had that number, I did that for the group directly below them, except I added to the last score until my average came out to be the same as the first average. Vanguard: (92.325+93.675+100)/3 = 95.333 BD: (90.975+93.250+101.775)/3 = 95.333
