  1. Dream big. DCI wins every lottery ever held and builds a traveling outdoor stadium. The stadium repels any bad weather. 30,000 hotel rentals always available at each site as well as no pickpockets and plenty of scholastic rehearsal space. Stadium ticket includes complimentary air travel and gratuities. Four town picks: Thermopolis, Wyoming Mackinac Island, Michigan Key West, Florida Crescent City, California
  2. Terri, there was one gently worded question: Did you sit in the seat that you purchased or did you move around?
  3. Trying to recall some of the other questions ... We were asked to rank 7 items in order of our engagement or affection. I think the choices were percussion, brass, guard, visual, music, the whole package, and uniforms/costumes. Another series of questions asked about EACH and EVERY corps's performance. No surprise: we were asked if we prefer traditional corps uniforms vs costumes that match the performance. How did we get to Indy? How many nights did we stay? How did we obtain our hotel room? How much did we buy at concessions and at souvie booths? Did you attend the 2008 Finals in Bloomington? How is the sound in Lucas Oil? Did you attend SoundSport? Friends breakfast? InStep? DrumLine Battle? Open Class finals at Marion? On a scale of 1-100, what score would you give to your overall Finals Experience?
  4. Were the Armed Forces questions new this year? We were asked if we served in the Army, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard. ... And did any of our kids, siblings, parents, or grandparents serve?
  5. They finally added Shapiro's to the long line up of Indy eateries, but continue to omit my annual trek to The Slippery Noodle.
  6. Wow, the yard sale has very few items this year. Time to mark down Phantom Regiment's large french fry props.
  7. Friday night, it was chilly in 241. From time to time, you would feel a big whoosh of cold air. Saturday night, it was just right in 141.
  8. For sale: Four regal staircases. Ideal to glam up your school production of 39 Steps.
  9. It was great seeing the Sky Ryders Alumni meet up for a group picture during intermission in the Southwest Concourse.
  10. Possible penalty for Music City. Rifle handler in guard crossed the front line.
  11. I notified the MODS from the Megabus. The thread title has been updated from Wednesday to Friday. I want to sit in your 140 front row seat for a second today to be scolded.
