  3. You can get San Antonio tickets here: http://www.thecrownstore.com/2016-dci-southwestern-championship-san-antonio-tx-all-tickets/
  4. If you want a copy of the Crown recording, go HERE.
  5. Crown had the highest 5th place score in DCI history with 95.675, beating out Santa Clara's 95.65 in 2009.
  6. Thanks, man. As a fellow MB3er now working with Crown that makes me very happy. The Crown kids are great and they truly loved performing that show.
  7. Carolina Crown's YouTube page = http://www.youtube.com/user/carolinacrowntv
  8. My iPhone ring tone is 2013 Carolina Crown playing Light Fantastic (the song that starts after "Impossible you say?"). Its more difficult than it needs to be, but step-by-step its easy. Iphone instructions: http ://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-make-ringtones-for-iphone/
  9. 1995 2000 2006 2011 =18 1996 2001 2007 2012 1997 2003 2008 2013 1998 2004 2009 1999 2005 2010
  10. I get where you are going, but maybe you should have substituted "100 plastic poles" for "wormholes". Crown's wormhole worked on a several levels. At the most basic, it was a nice magic trick, and everybody's happy when the guy gets the girl.
  11. That dialogue you link to is shortened. Here's a better one: http://www.justsomelyrics.com/588739/michael-riesman,-philip-glass-ensemble-einstein-on-the-beach%3A-knee-play-5-lyrics.html If you go down to "Lovers on a Bench" you will see the line "Everything must have an end except my love for you."
  12. The mellophone soloist for SCV who stood in the middle of the field all by himself, unmiked, and played a gorgeous solo.
  13. Thanks for your note, Keith. I hope this calms the waters a bit. I saw Music City for the first time in Indianapolis, and I thought the group looked and sounded terrific. I think you could be helpful with the experience that you have been though, to guide and advise this group (and hopefully the larger drum corps community) on some of the points your raise. Can you expand on: 1. "The current arrangement is not going to grow the activity". What do the open class/smaller corps need to be sustainable? Cash, obviously. But what rules changes need to be made to provide the necessary support? 2. Should Dan Acheson have the power of a "commissioner" with the ability to interpret rules and make accommodations without detailed approval by the BOD?
