  1. I started a thread last week, when I discovered this feature when I logged into Flomarching (to cancel my annual subscription renewal on June 1). My point in sharing was for those who might want to get some enjoyment during the remaining days of their annual subscription. Then I saw my thread was taken down with no explanation. I particularly enjoyed the 42 Cadets shows (1975, 1977, 1980-2019) they featured on Sunday 5/24. But whatever, I guess my original post was deemed more inappropriate than the usual spreading of wild ### rumors about the Cadets or other nonsense 🙂
  2. I know of one member's family who couldn't be more appreciative of the impressive leadership Denise and her team have shown this season and especially throughout this unprecedented time. This member's family has yet to experience the "lack of information" that you have alleged. But feel free to keep stirring the pot, if it makes you feel better.
  3. When the "Cadets 2020" thread gets bumped to the second page of DCI World Class Corps Discussions, Mr. Acheson, it's time.
  4. Yes, what was this supposed email of which RContra posted late Thursday, then later edited his/her post? Mind you, I remain skeptical of the feasibility of a 2020 season, but it'll be cancelled for the Cadets at the same time as the rest of the DCI world and open class corps.
  5. Completely agree. "With the hope for a safe and vastly improved environment in the coming weeks..." -- that just ain't gonna happen folks. This pandemic is just getting started. This seems more about softening the blow when they have to REALLY pull the plug.
  6. I call ########. For example, Cadets had a virtual brass camp this weekend. It's deplorable for anyone to use this public health emergency to spread misinformation and innuendo about the current Cadets leadership. The only ones who would be privy to this kind of information would be Denise and members of the new board.
  7. Just click the link. That worked for me and I'm not a subscriber. I think the WSJ has temporarily suspended pay walls.
  8. No you're not. You're thinking about "how can I use this public health emergency to troll DCP and throw more shade at the current Cadets leadership"
  9. It's time to accept the reality of the inevitable; the transmission of the virus will continue for a while. What could a corps director do if a staff member or performer tests positive while on tour? They'd have to quarantine everyone for 2 weeks. WGI has already to agreed to give age-outs another season. DCI should do the same. I agree that the 2021 will be strong; can you imagine how competitive the season will be with this much time to prepare?
  10. Aye - and I can't imagine any corps director not on board with this
  11. Sorry...filter circumvention.
  12. DCI will likely be shutting down for 2020 soon, it won't just be Cadets
  13. It seems like DCI has two choices: 1) delay the start of tour and have a shortened season, or 2) cancel tour. With still so many unknowns, I don't know how DCI could commit to a shortened season. I'd rather see everyone begin to focus their energy on 2021.
  14. It's reasonable to believe the transmission of the virus will continue for a while. What could a corps director do if a staff member or performer tests positive while on tour? They'd have to quarantine everyone for 2 weeks. I think we're all in denial of the inevitable. I suspect DCI may soon pull the plug on the 2020 Tour. WGI has already to agreed to give age-outs another season. DCI should do the same. Can you imagine how competitive the 2021 season will be with this much time to prepare?
