  1. I sit at the top of Section 440 and never felt chilled.
  2. Mods, please move this to the proper forum if this isn't the right place. This just came up today. If you can help The Cavaliers, or know anyone who can, please private message Bruce Peters. https://www.facebook.com/bruce.peters <Sending out a 911 we had a van driver back out on us last minute looking for somebody who can drive immediately through San Antonio. If anybody is able to assist PM me as soon as possible. Thank you.>
  3. I've been asked by some what I think of the latest news out of Madison Scouts. I'm still processing this, but here are a few thoughts. (You're welcome to share this if you think it expresses your own thoughts and wish, and please add your own positive thoughts.) I have always loved the Madison Scouts organization and I always will love it. Over the years, I got to know many wonderful people who instructed Scouts or were on their management team. I cherish those memories. I also got to know several who currently are involved with management. I cherish their friendship as well. I will conti
  4. Hey, I almost never think of checking my messages on DCP because I usually access the site from my phone, and the message icon doesn't jump out at me there. Sorry to take so long to respond to this, but I deeply appreciate your vote of confidence. It does mean a lot.

    The reality of the situation is: If the Open Class directors ever decide the show should be elsewhere, it will be moved.

    The directors themselves voted to have the show in Michigan City, and having been there every year, it fills the stadium with a quite supportive audience that embraces the members. I've been at the "big" stadium the years Division II/III (Open Class) Prelims/Finals have been held there and it was sad to see so few fans come out. The year The Academy won there were less than 500 people in the stands of the large stadium, and that was even with DCI providing free admittance by showing a World Class Finals ticket. I speak to Open Class directors every year at the Michigan City show, and they love having their own championship there. Having it closer to Indy would not be beneficial in any way I can imagine.

    It’s interesting you say that, because I’ve heard the opposite, but I’ve learned over the years you don’t speak without the facts, figures, and sources to back up your points. :rolleyes:

  9. I have a face best suited for radio and blogging.
  10. Please add to this thread where one can find drum corps in parades on Independence Day. For those in the Chicago area, you can catch The Cavaliers at 8:00 in Niles, 11:30 in Glenview, and 2:30 in Morton Grove.
  11. It's that darn DCI.org problem where all shows are listed as being held one day earlier.
  12. It's that darn DCI.org problem where all the shows are off by one day. Thanks for pointing that out.
