  1. I am not sure how well DCA will do back in Rochester. It has been several more years since the Crusaders or Statesmen marched so they are less remembered now. Also DCA has lost many competing corps since last in Rochester. Most did not bring huge contingents with them but each corps bringing some fans added a little to the crowd. I wonder if they will reinstate the hotel policy ? I think Williamsport never got the economic impact they hoped for. However there will probably be no corps day tripping to compete in Rochester so they may get some money into their hotels.
  2. In 85 I was with another corps and I was amazed at the SCV show . I couldn't believe they were kids just like us. I still think that was one of the best shows I had ever seen. Maybe it was just seeing only parts of it live. Later I became friends with some people in that SCV corps . I think it is on my profile as my favorite show.
  3. With no scores would that end penalties for age outs, going to long, using flutes and violins so what if your score is thrown out for having a bunch of 40 year olds there is no score
  4. I dreaded a no score season, however I thought that musically most corps were the best I had heard in a while. maybe not as aerobic but just as entertaining and doing music they liked and that we knew and liked. however there needs to be a criteria for performance orders and such, would it be a random draw to perform at 10 am on finals day, Would you have Jersey Surf perform between Bloo and SCV ? May everyone would sit through 8 hours to catch Blue Devils at 2:30 then come back at 5:00 to see Boston.
  5. I was somewhat less than positive about this season with all the stuff that had been going on. Even just seeing Colt Cadets makes me miss being out somewhere in the heat helping out the corps in some way. I may still have to make my way to the midwest in a week or 2.
  6. I think the chain Music in Madison is about this. I am watching on flow and it started with a high school ensemble performing national Anthem to a very active crowd, happy to see corps back on the field
  7. I received an email in April from a corps saying to expect ticket sales as well as actual locations of shows around June 1.
  8. There are many people still in hysteria and buying the hype. You cannot force them to come out of the basement and do something before they feel totally safe. Some people think that they would be endangering their children's lives letting them travel anytime in the next few years.
  9. This was put out by a corps. I think this echoes a lot of the sediment here, we are not against having a season but there are still many variables out there We are cautiously optimistic about real, live drum corps this summer. However, please know that the best source of information regarding official really great Drum Corps events is the official really great Drum Corps website. While speculative dates may have been announced, many of these dates are NOT confirmed by the participating organizations and could be moved. We, too, are anxious to gather together - safely. But don’t go buying your plane tickets just yet. Our website, emails, and social media accounts are the best sources of information on our event dates. We appreciate your patience and understanding! and this is the corps putting it out
  10. I figured the Bluecoats wrong, thought they were doing the midwest thing, but looks like they were persuaded to go East.
  11. I do some occasional part time work with an events company and we just had a conference scheduled for Sept canceled, And our attendees stay in hotels, not high school gyms and don't spend real long times in crowded busses. Though most would have flown. The events company still has some events tenatively scheduled for July and August but I am not that sure how solid they are. I think that with the money the companies need to lay out for a big meeting they are not all that confident everything will be better by then. And I guess they can do the actual business online they just miss the fun team building stuff that costs money and makes people want to come to the conventions. I still havn't bought a plane ticket to Indy.
  12. The district still is restricting rentals and uses of interior spaces “through the start of next school year,” with the exception of groups involved in summer school activities. IE housing
  13. I would be surprised if they were to announce an Allentown DCI event. From what I have seen in corps that have announced their summer intentions most have some idea that they would be regional in the midwest and maybe some type of a texas tour for corps in the southwest. Going to Allentown would be completely out of sync with their previous intentions and entail a great deal more tour planning and expense. Things are changing quickly but in my mind (which is wrong quite often) I don't see an Large Allentown event happening. Maybe BAC and Cadets doing an exhibition, but not a major event.
  14. The last time they went over it was in Sept Oct they did an exhibition at DCE finals then went to Switzerland. So most of the DCI corps was probably back in school. Also one reason the season was cancelled was the bingo hall was closed for a while and they were unsure of their finances, It states in the announcement that they have found other sponsors for this tour, and it is very much not written in stone yet.
  15. Crown would not be in the geographical footprint of that group, I had heard rumors of Bluceoats possibly doing midwest, but not east, and Crown possibly doing Texas though I havn't seen anything lately to suggest that.. I hate to beat on people who are down, but I think GH had a lot to do with crushing many East Coast corps, destroying the old Drum Corps East.
