  1. They will not be a DCI corps again until a legitimate Board of Directors is installed and other improvements made, which we all know why that won't happen for a very long time.
  2. Outdated show concepts were a symptom of the larger sickness...
  3. By the end of the 90s, the drumline for the corps had near Top 12 talent (check the Pioneer drumline scores from Quarters and Semis in 1999), a decent music book in 1999 and 2000. That was in spite of the fact that the corps did lose a lot of drumline members to the Top 12, hornline members to the reborn Southwind from Lexington KY. The corps started to really fall apart after 2001, missing Semis by .05 that year. You would think that after the 2002 season, there would have been some discussion about the music direction and operations of the corps to remain competitive, but no. Roman dug in an
  4. "It was a dark day in the history of the DCI Drum and Bugle Corps Activity because they sacrificed one of their own……" More like Roman sacrificed his own organization. The best way he could have helped the corps was to step down and not be involved, but he didn't and DCI doesn't want any part of it. It is a dark day for his legacy.
  5. Have not attended a DCI show since 2011 and very little time to attend any shows. DCI is not doing themselves any favors.
  6. I guess there was no pension when he retired from Pabst and Social Security doesn't cut it? It's unfortunate he never could see anyone else leading the corps beyond him. RIP Pioneer.
  7. Yes, DCI is making Pioneer and Cadets the examples of a newer, more rigorous standards to be held to. Other corps should take notice in case they have things they are trying to hide too.
  8. I don't know who MagnoliaFan25 is, nor do I really care, but it looks like they sensationalized the Alumni meeting by claiming that "Roman has absolutely no intention of releasing his stranglehold over Pioneer". From what I read in the meeting notes they posted: #1 – EXPANDED BOARD OF DIRECTORS Pioneer must maintain a Board of Directors that includes a minimum of five people that have not served in that position before. In response to this requirement, the Board of Directors will be expanded to nine members. The exact governance structure, bylaws and appointment proc
  9. I agree, optics on this are bad right away, which is why the Interim Board of Directors removed him within 48 hours of the information being presented to them. I would call that being transparent and sending a message that they are operating in the best manner possible. Now I want to know who at SCV should be investigated, as rmurrey74 said is still there.
  10. I think Pioneer is learning the value of transparency. Once it was pointed out that Scott Stewart enabled a sex offender in his organization, Pioneer removed him from the interim board, which is why he is no longer listed on the corps' website. There is much that the corps has to learn, but it's happening now. It will take awhile, but I believe the new board and CEO are making the correct moves and actions.
  11. Wrong Case family. The drum major from 1996 was from Brown Deer, WI. Larry Case is from the Chicago area.
  12. My post from the other thread: Bill was corps director when Pioneer finished in 17th, 16th, and 18th place (1999-2001)
