  1. I must say, Vanguard Cadets not touring outside of California is shocking. I always thought the Vanguard organization had one of the better revenue streams of any DCI corps.

    Who will be heading this up, exactly? The Board and the Director are one in the same. They are choosing their own replacements?
  3. And now out for 2019 tour: https://www.dci.org/news/pioneer-will-not-participate-in-2019-dci-tour

  5. This was exactly my experience in section 141.
  6. I was seated side A, 40 yard line, front row. From our seats, The side B bari soloist seemed to disappear at some point during the back and forth in the ballad. I’m. It sure if this is due to speaker placement relative to our seats, but we heard the first few sections just fine. I also recall a trumpet screamer in the ballad. I didn’t see or hear this last night.

    Last night the vocalist sound was hit and miss in the stadium, too.

    At the beginning it looks to be an acoustic/electric. Interesting. I had just assumed they were synth patches.

    Is he actually playing the guitar? I thought acoustic string instruments were not allowed?

    They kept the second one last night. Also, for those watching on Flo. We had the opportunity to sit directly across from the high camera operator (top row, side A, 40 yard line) last night. We witnessed this camera operator do all of the following: Attempt to protect themself from the cold/rain with a foil emergency blanket wrapped around them most of the night. Adjust said emergency blanket every 2 minutes, with the resulting sound annoying everyone in the general vicinity. Literally spend more time looking at their phone than at the image in the camera viewfinder. If you missed any key action, I may have found the reason.

    Ponchos are purchased and packed. Hopefully we don’t need them! Rain has been off and on in Michigan City all morning. We’ve run into patents from SCVC, Spartans, and Shadow at our hotel. Everyone is ready for a great show. My two boys from Colt Cadets are hoping to have their best run of the season - making finals would be a nice bonus, however unlikely it may be. Go CC!
  15. Not looking good — at all! Fingers crossed.
