  1. Shout out to my people in Cincinnati for achieving the first ever Box 5 brass score in the corps' history!
  2. Always love watching Fusion Core, not to mention they have my favorite shade of purple

    Not saying you will always have problems over WiFi, just saying problems over WiFi can't be controlled by anyone.
  5. I'd be surprised if it was our ballad from that year considering all our music minus the preshow and closer was original music that year lol

    DCA Livestream

    Brief note for anyone watching the live stream, myself being a former IT guy and internet repair guy at one point, if you are watching over WiFi you will be more susceptible to possible issues because WiFi connection cannot be guaranteed (any internet provider will tell you that). You will get your best and most guaranteed connections over a hard wired connection by ethernet cable 🙂
  7. Are they announcing any scores while prelims is going on or are they waiting until the end?

    Switching from G to Bb/F instruments, what year?

    Depends on if you wanna talk DCI or include DCA in that. Last corps to win with G horns was Cincinnati Tradition in 2016. I believe Erie Thunderbirds still use G as well.

    Standings as of now DCA

    Most recent score for White Sabers is a 72 even from 6/30

    2017 DCA Finals

    To anyone watching online, I am not associated with Flo whatsoever, but I do have a background in IT and internet support and I can say, although no one likes to hear this answer at all, your connection to any streaming service will work better over a hard wired internet connection than a wireless one. Best thing I can suggest if you absolutely must use wifi is to check the internal settings of your wifi router and make sure the channel is not set to "auto" that's usually the biggest issue with wifi issues. If your channel is set to "auto" I suggest setting it to either 1, 6, or 11 hope that might help clear anything up for anyone having issues that aren't getting any help from Flo support. Wish I could be watching or at least in Rochester this year.
  11. It's not just drum corps staff either. I deal with it at high school shows too. As an instructor, but also as a spectator, I have had conversations with guard instructors to basically tell them to "shut their pie holes" and that's the nice way of me saying it. It's a real inconvenience when I'm in charge of recording videos of my students or other schools and a staff member is right beside me just ruining the experience not to mention my recordings.

    2017 Rankings

    From what I've heard, but not sure of the validity of it, they use a hybrid score sheet of DCI and DCA. I have no clue what it looks like though. Half the time (in the past) we don't get a score at DCI shows we do anyway.
