  1. Yeah, that makes sense as well. There's a reason Blue Stars did similar starting many years ago, moving camps first to MSP and then to Indianapolis.
  2. Recruiting in texas isn't a mistake. Its a large state with large metro areas with lots of good programs, with a range of talent. Not everyone will make top 8\12. If done like some do, with remote camps, they can be a decent fundraiser. Charge $100 a head, get a couple hundred kids to show up. Hopefully you find some good additions, even if they no one from that site makes it to everydays, you've gotten paid.
  3. Honestly, this thread might be better off with a restart, with all the currently announced changes put in the first couple posts, and then strict on-topic moderation.
  4. ####. I love Frank's stuff, was hoping for more from him.
  5. this is quite possibly the most worthless 57 page read ever. if you know something, say it or say nothing. otherwise this thread should have just died for a month and offtopic talk gone elsewhere.
  6. I'll miss the ease corpsreps had for searching old scores. This new one seems harder to do so.
  7. Obviously heavy bias, but if they keep the team together, i think they'll make a move before too long. Show in 17 had some great moments but was a little disjointed (this improved a lot over the season).
  8. Right? If you've got info say something, or don't, but don't play 'i know something you dont know'.
  9. I would agree with many of the above that i think the corps is headed in the right direction. 16 and 17 were both years i loved. My main criticism of '17 was that sometimes the show felt a bit disjointed in the transitions, but i think im hardly unique in that criticism, and one that is pretty show-specific. I certainly don't know enough about percussion to comment there, but hoping for no major changes of direction on the brass\guard side of things. And i hope for many more years with Frank writing the brass book.
  10. Yeah... its possible the browser implementation is subpar compared to the roku one as well Was your pc connection wired or on wifi?
  11. That happens. Usually the first couple scores drop without corps below them pushing the numbers up. Same thing happened this year with semifinals actually- Cascades prelims score was higher than Spartans' semis score.
  12. Same. Wireless works in a pinch, and i use it for casting tabs to a chromecast quick (as i was doing with some facebook live lot feeds this afternoon), but if you want reliability on a stream wired is the way to go.
  13. For sale: one giant birdcage. Bedding not included.
  14. It actually worked perfectly for me. Was on a roku with wired internet connection, and with a 65" screen i wouldve noticed resolution dropoffs pretty quickly. My only disappointment was cutting off the encore.
  15. Gotta say, i didn't get to see them that many times, (during everydays Forest city, Johnston in early july, Finals stream), but they really impressed me this year. Easily had the potential to place higher, but this year was just a ##### in terms of everyone really bringing it. Easily my favorite ballad of the entire night this year. And i hope Frank Sullivan stays a long, long time. It was so good to have his music, particularly the mello parts, back on the DCI stage.
  16. Except this seems to happen often where judges get into a herd mentality come finals week. I repeat, i don't have a problem at all with BD winning, they had an excellent show, probably the one i found most enjoyable in years, but those recaps are... something.
  17. I dont have a problem with BD winning, but that margin is ludicrous
