  1. Your right Jim. Many parades do charge to participate. Money talks and without it many corps won't walk (the parade)
  2. As Fran has stated, every corps has been playing catch up to the Bucs for the past 10 years. But, if you look at the scores the week prior to finals the top 3 corps were within 7/10 th's of each other. That would be final scores. I think many fans and participants would be more interested in a final that was as close as those three were at that time. JMO.๐Ÿ˜Š
  3. I hope it's a happy dance you'll be doing when you're in the midst of us (Cabs Alumni) On Friday night. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  4. Florida, I'm just wonder if the judges are as sure as you are at this time. ๐Ÿ™„
  5. I agree Fran. The numbers by Clifton will give everyone a pretty good idea where things are headed. CV will have been judged the previous week and Reading and Hawthorne will meet at Clifton.
  6. The show did go off. It was a "judged exhibition" No scores were given but the corps did receive a critique from the judges.
  7. I was 45 the first year I marched with the Cabs (1992). Marching drum corps was also on my bucket list though I did march in St. Lucy's for one year in 1966. I remember calling Post 199 on a rehearsal night and the person answering the phone was Jim Costello. After a short conversation he said come on down to the next rehearsal we will find a place for you. I'm sure the staff at Reading would say the same to you -- come on down we'll find a place for you. I never felt out of place or not accepted by the much younger members. If anything it was my own feelings of being "older" that made me hesitant. I marched through the 2003 season have made many friends "much younger than myself" that still remain in my life. My advise to you Diddle is GO FOR IT!!! You never want to say to yourself I might have, I could have, I SHOULD HAVE!! --btw I've been with the Cabs Alumni since 2004 when I aged out of the competing corps at 57 LOL LOL
  8. So now that Allen Buell has announced that the Alumni Specular will move to a stage performance, What are your thoughts about this? It will remain on Sunday.
  9. Everyone will have to wait until next week. Same show just add Cincinnati to the mix.
  10. What happened to White Sabers?? I know they have been scored twice.
  11. Great stadium, lot's of choices for dining, lot's more to do (sightseeing). With all things considered it has to be Annapolis. I do agree with Fran that the concerts at the NYS fairgrounds were a benefit for DCA in exposing drum corps to hopefully new fans.
  12. What was the attendance like at Williamsport this past Saturday? Anyone know ?
  13. No I didn't Florida. There final position is already known. It's a race for 2nd.
  14. The scores for Williamsport are really interesting. Cabs 87.75 White Sabers 87.35 Fusion 87.25 Sky 75.60. The next few weeks will have all corps at full throttle. These three corps are so close to each other it will make for a real good weekend in Rochester. Now throw in C2, CV and The Kids.
  15. I have two questions that I'm sure someone can answer. #1 If the American Legion is co-sponsoring this show, will the winner be the American Legion National champs? #2 If the answer to #1 is yes, does the American Legion require the corps to have an honor guard? In advance - thanks
