  1. Discord is great for communicating information fast and instantly as well as voice chat and very easy to use on mobile. I run the KY Marching Discord server that I started to spread from the KY discussion forums and I find it much easier to interact with your community.
  2. I am participating, I'd like to just run Thoroughbreds in Class A
  3. I'm down for it, especially if champs are where I live 😉
  4. The Thoroughbreds organization has relocated to Bowling Green, KY and has made plans to return in season 29. Our organization is happy to make this announcement after much consideration and planning and is looking forward to competing once again! Hope to see everyone soon! Stephen Chase Todd Corps director
  5. I will definitely use the Discord server. I will be trying to make a return to DCPI in the next season.
  6. I'd definitely recommend the Bach 6.5 AL Megatone
  7. Shout out to my people in Cincinnati for achieving the first ever Box 5 brass score in the corps' history!
  8. Not saying you will always have problems over WiFi, just saying problems over WiFi can't be controlled by anyone.
  9. 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
  10. 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 🙂
  11. Are they announcing any scores while prelims is going on or are they waiting until the end?
  12. 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.
  13. Most recent score for White Sabers is a 72 even from 6/30
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Cincinnati Tradition is proud to present our 2017 program "Lift" Musical selections Come Sweet Death - Bach Brothers in Arms - Junkie XL Don't Give Up - Peter Gabriel Aurora Awakes - John Mackey
  18. I can only say so much from marching tuba on the field, but this is my 5th year with Cincinnati Tradition and this is by far the best product this group has ever produced. We greatly appreciated the announcer acknowledging our success at DCA championships last year and appreciate the crowd showing their support for us. We always do our best to take steps in the right direction. Btw, we still have spots open and we are an all age corps if anyone is interested in joining. Our oldest performer is 67 and our youngest is 14, so we have a wide variety of ages and anyone is welcome. Feel free to contact me if you need more information. :-)
  19. Cincinnati Tradition Drum and Bugle Corps is still looking to fill a few spots. The corps is doing very well and it would be a great place for a few prospects to learn how to get to the next level! 1 Mello 1 trumpet 2 front ensemble 3 colorguard Our numbers are set for 65 plus 3 DM's This is the cap for DCA class A Feel free to message me with anyone looking to grow and experience drum corps!
  20. Cincinnati Tradition hasn't released our show title and music to the public yet.
