    DCI LEAVES (downtown) INDY!

    This not a good look for DCI.

    A Chance to respond to DCI about FloMarching

    I guess they didn’t want my feedback. I bought Flo in ‘17 and ‘18. I haven’t heard from thern,

    A440?

    Shocking, to say the least... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt3EAPDn-Ug
  4. With the evolution of the uniform and technology to drum corps in recent years, here’s the NBA combining uniforms and technology together in a creative way. Do you think we’ll see something like this on the field anytime soon? What other creative do you think will we see in years to come? https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2820955-nba-unveils-jersey-of-the-future-during-2019-nba-all-star-weekend?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial

    Why is this thread in “World Class” discussions?

    Nice job on the spreadsheet. I think it is missing Orlando on July 6th for Crown, right?

    2019 Tour Schedule!

    I saw in the news arcticle that the TOC Is at Akron Infocision. Yet, within DCI’s schedule, the Aug 5th show is Massillon. BTW - I was hoping that DCI would improve the user experience for their schedule - NOPE . Their old schedule format was much better.

    2019 Tour Schedule!

    I wonder if it is time for DCI to stop sending Midwest-Eastern corps out west. There was a time when DCI needed some help in numbers for their western lineups. I don’t think that’s an issue anymore.

    Best Reprise Closer?

    I’ve been listening to Crown’s “Relentless” from 2016. I can’t think of a finer example of a reprise and a show filled with continuity, dramamatic tie-ins and messaging. Medea is only one example, as incredible as it is. This show was broadway on a footballl field. Reprise, YES. And so much more! PS - and now back to my off-season hibernation!😴
  12. As popular as DCI may be, its economic success rides far too much on the backs of the marching members. DCI is fortunate to be able to sell a product that literally pays for itself. For the activity to truly expand, it needs to reach out to an even larger audience and open the activity to more kids that don't need a small loan to participate on drum corps' biggest stages.
  13. Here's some added perspective: Pioneer's latest available gross receipts very similar to that of Music City. Look what Music City has accomplished compared to Pio. Pathetic leadership and structure with Pioneer. The whole needs needs torn down or closed down immediately.

    Pioneer Member Rant

    Only 1 hour and 20 minutes away, 90 miles west of Milwaukee where Pioneer resides, is a pretty darn good up-and-coming corps from Oregon, WI. SHADOW, as they are called. We enjoyed their show last week at prelims. Looks like Wisconsin is in good hands. I’d suggest anyone at PIO checking them out. Until then, Pioneer needs to clean house, structure an independent board, hire a qualified director, and begin looking like, and acting like, a World Class drum corps. If not, shut them down. There are plenty of other options as witnessed by the tremendous growth of Open Class and a resurgence of many other corps throughout DCI. By the way, how many times will corps fall prey to dictator directors that also control their own board?
