  1. I suggest a few people should open their own forum to take their war offline and out of our ears. Grow up!
  2. That is fantastic! Love that it is inclusive. Thanks for sharing!!!
  3. Well PR fans, the announcement we’ve been waiting for posted from the DrumScorps app
  4. Please, no one fall for LandSurfer’s bait. Someone must have hurt him as a child. He’s probably shooing kids off his front lawn and making calls with his flip phone right now. posted from the DrumScorps app
  5. Just saw WF show on YouTube. This show may not be in the top 10 against the competition this year, but it is the best show they’ve put on the field since 2012. Good job! posted from the DrumScorps app
  6. Anyone seen if they’ve finished the ending yet? Also, saw Joan going up in smoke in Atlanta video. posted from the DrumScorps app
  7. This is in no way meant as disrespectful to you. Do you think perhaps your response is exactly the kind of attitude you are accusing the leadership of having? I have learned over the years that my successes have been directly linked to my ability and interest in building relationships with my team. Those of us who volunteer and financially support the corps are an integral part of the team, and our voices should be sought out in a healthy relationship. Let’s not assume they are disinterested. Maybe they just want answers and good suggestions rather than a list of complaints and gripes. posted from the DrumScorps app
  8. I wonder if leadership might be open to an online private forum for ideas and suggestions throughout the entire year.
  9. I’m interested to hear what complaints need to be made to corps leadership. I see that suggestion on this forum a lot, but there are never any specifics. Perhaps outlining a few talking points here and then communicating those ideas individually to those leaders would prove more profitable than all the frustrating, useless discussion. If it’s that important, let’s put our heads together and come up with a few action items we can all get behind and share them earnestly with the corps. What say you? posted from the DrumScorps app
  10. There has been negative talk on here for years, none of which has changed anything, especially the minds of the corps leadership. All the discussion is nothing more than that: discussion. No one’s mind has ever been changed, nor have opinions made any discernible difference. Staff changes in drum corps is a constant process, and just like professional sports, only a chosen few will end up with the winning combination, and even fewer will be able to hold onto championship teams for long stretches of time. Most teams will ebb and flow over decades, giving the armchair quarterbacks something to keep them busy. PR’s fortunes will likely change one day, but until then, let’s all try to remember that in the end this is all little more than high school / college marching band. I love it too, but it’s an odd thing to get so wrapped up in as to get into such heated discussions. posted from the DrumScorps app
  11. Wow. They didn’t used to have to make requests. There was usually so many ppl trying to volunteer that they had to turn them away. This is not unusual for the last week. There looks to be one or two all-summer people who are not with them. Don’t read into it. posted from the DrumScorps app
  12. Just got an email that they have an urgent need for food truck and uniform cleaner volunteers between WV and Indy. Here’s your chance to make a difference, not just talk. And, yes, I have worked as a volunteer several times, before I get hit with cabbages and rotten tomatoes.
  13. I don't think you can equate Tony Hall coming on tour with a crappy visual design -- until recently he would come out at some point every year. Even the amazing jamey thompson years That’s exactly right. He is a feet guy, a cleaner-upper, not really a redesigner. posted from the DrumScorps app
