  1. I am really proud of the corps this year. I hope they have a great performance at the Alamodome tomorrow, and continue to grow!
  2. So pictures are up from last night's uniform run through, the corps is wearing the traditional looking uniform with thematic touches on the gauntlets and shakes! Best of luck tonight in Allentown Surf!
  3. That was from the annual We the People Memorial Day Flag Dedication. In recent history, the corps has worn the dress uniform for this (out of respect for the Veterans) and then sees the show costumes after and wears them at spring training
  4. I for one am excited to see what surf has planned for this year. I have heard good things from friends still in the corps from when I marched
  5. Hey all, I am looking for a Conn Helleberg 120s tuba mouthpiece. I don't care if it is new or used, but I need one for corps this year. I have some mouthpieces I would be willing to trade to get one. Let me know, and thanks in advance!
  6. I don't know if anyone saw on facebook, but Spirit of Atlanta will be using Kanstul horns
  7. Contact bushwackers. I know they rent out horns in the fall
  8. I know that many people will probably hate me for this, but I actually don't care. Remember the overwhelmingly negative reaction crown's uniform got? How did that turn out? I may be remembering it wrong, but all I am saying is let's give it a chance. If it doesn't work, it can always be rescinded at the next rules congress
  9. When I think iconic songs, these are the ones that come to mind for me: Blue Devils: when a man loves a woman Spirit of Atlanta: Georgia on my mind Jersey surf: pure imagination
  10. Out of sheer curiosity, could someone PM some info on how to find George's Resignation Letter? I am greatly curious about it, and I can't seem to find it
  11. One of our techs at Surf this past summer marched a total of 7 years. 2 at crossmen. 5 at bd, aging out in 20111
  12. Thanks for the advice Frank. I appreciate the advice, and I believe I know what I will do!
  13. I am keeping a countdown at home! I can't wait to be there!
  14. I want to know if this is possible, or if it is even done by people? I ask because I am torn between marching in a competitive DCA corps and an Alumni Corps.
  15. Honestly, I preferred BD to Crown this year, and felt they should have won. That being said, i can see why crown won.
  16. I really appreciate the fact that even the website event calendar does a countdown!
  17. So, I said Foo Fighters earlier, and this is a possible show idea: Opener: Best of You/My Hero 2nd piece: Learn to Fly 3rd piece: Up in Arms Percussion Feature: Rope Closer: Pretender/Walk/Bridge Burning
  18. Thought this was an interesting perspective on drum corps auditions for those who are eligible: DCI Auditionees
  19. I personally think a Foo Fighters show could be really awesome. so much to work from
  20. Drack, Can't wait to be there as part of the cba again!
  21. So, i'm just looking out of sheer curiosity here, but I am looking for a BBb marching tuba. I have a vintage Conn 32K BBb sousaphone that I am interested in getting rid of. This horn plays very nicely. Has a great tone. Comes with hardshell wood case. Valves and slides all move. Has a newer neck and tuning bits This horn plays very nicely. I got it for a marching gig, but would prefer a marching tuba. So, anyone out there interested in a trade?
  22. I know this is an extremely old thread, but I wish to put in my opinion. Now, I am only familia with tubas/contras, so here we go: Jupiter quantum - the new horns are fantastic. Now that they have gotten rid of the detachable bell. Intonation is excellent on the new ones. Only downside is that they are heavier than the other horns currently being used in DCI today. IMO, one of the nicest playing horns in production. King system blue - light! Plays well, with a consistent tone in all registers. Awkward to hold. Light! King ultimate - light. Not as nice as system blue, but nice. Yamaha - it's heavier than a king, much lighter than the Jupiter. Stuffy on lower notes
