  1. Understood. But what’s the alternative? Another year without member fee income could be the death knoll to DCI and many of the member corps.
  2. Expecting to see a 2021 field show seems like fantasy today.
  3. I couldn’t agree more with Tim K. Great perspective and excellent points!
  4. Good luck with this. I get that corps need to find creative ways to make up for lost revenue and to try to stay afloat. However, the “School of the Arts” is a bit of a tough sell without promise of a competitive season on the field.
  5. Most any show. Really. Often times movement, themes, expressions... are lost on me in interpretation of what’s happening on the field. If there’s a recognizable theme or storyline, great. But easily followed storyline shows are few and far between.
  6. As a BIG TIME Crown HOMER, it’s always enjoyable to introduce a casual observer to Crown 2016. This show was absolutely Relentless in music and storyline that captured the audience from start to finish. The New Zealander called it right when she mentioned how well the drum line performed (along with God’s Brass jamming in only in a way the Crown Brass can jam). The music book for both percussion and brass for this version of Crown is among the best of all time. If you want to introduce a newbie to what drum corps is - and can be - it doesn’t get much better than this. Reflecting back on th
  7. Kilties were a 70's powerhouse. Darned shame they couldn't survive, as with so many corps, into the modern day world of DCI.
  8. There was a DCI show in Vegas on July 6, 2009. The show was not well attended and DCI never returned. Unlike most of the country, folks who live in Vegas go into hibernation starting in June until September. When marching bands practice, they do so before the sun goes up or in the evening. Unless DCI could generate a decent crowd, it’s unlikely a show in the NFL stadium would make economic sense.
  9. My favorite 13th place show goes to the Troopers in 2015.
  10. No Crown 2020, but this version showed no mercy. Electric run during 2016. Oh, my! One of the greatest shows ever! Now, on to Inferno, ‘14, ‘13, ‘12, ‘11, ‘10, ‘09. Sure miss Crown. C’mon back soon!
