  1. thanks for your schedule work but please explain to color coding of event sites
  2. Much truth in your post but any corps assigned to Corpse Christi might want to compete in t-shirts and shorts- heat is equal to AZ with humidity thrown in for laughs. Sunset might happen about 8:30. Afternoon rehearsal will be a cool and refreshing 93. The joys of touring.
  3. Strikes me as odd that a current world class dci member corps executive director is gathering in absentee votes to be used by him for the election of open BOD seats. As a general rule when this action is undertaken it implies a level of tension regarding the current management and future outlook of an organization. Can't help thinking that a controlled BOD isn't the best way of exploring opportunities and continued stability. I have witnessed this situation first hand regarding a homeowner association and it wasn't pretty to say to least. Hoping the people involved can seek solutions concerning their various views of what's best for their corps.
  4. brilliant this little essay puts you in the class of iron lips' prose skills. your dark side has conquered your love of the activity. can't help but remember that fateful day when members became students.
  5. first corps was a standstill/parade corps with one instructor for all captions. jr m&m corps was genero on brass, cluna on drill and friesing on drums- each were the designers as well. sr. corps was drietzer with rodriques on horns, eric p on drums and various drill guys over the years did the writing with dm doing cleaning guard people were no place to be found pit was way in the future. jr corps fit on one bus with all equipment in the under carriage
  6. Anyone know anything about DCA having a championship in China this July?
  7. wondered when someone would pick pr 08. it was magic. closest thing to pr was mad 88. most shows do not reach the level of pure emotional crowd reaction
  8. Jeff, the post shot was low hanging fruit. Too easy to be sure. Sometimes you just got to have a little. Happy you got back in the conversation as you do have something to say. Your marketing comments are not to be argued with as DCA's ability to promote itself is beyond sad. It is nothing new. Can't help but wonder if DCI should be approached to handle this segment of DCA's operational activities. It takes money to make money and whether DCA would open its wallet for this venture is an unknown. Considering DCA's track record it would seem worth the risk.
  9. is that all you got to offer. 100,000+ posts with opinions on anything and everything and you punt. jeff, our world awaits your wisdom. don't let our new cultural sensitivities stop you. must thank keith hall for starting this topic and the other posters lively comments that followed.
