    2019 Drum Corps Tour

    I'll be super interested in your take on corps you see in the theater in Detroit then days later in Massillon, then again much later at a TOC show in Akron, when they've developed the shows and improved performance levels (or may not so much). Travel safely all summer. Love your writing and commentary.

    If you are THAT interested and it is so inexcusable (yikes! Inexcusable?) maybe attend a camp and satisfy your curiosity? Shouldn’t corps be allowed to manage their own communications and not for anyone's personal benefit. Maybe before they let teasers or other info out, they might want MM’s in on it all first. And not all corps have all the ranks filled. Now that WGI is over and corps will be filled up by May 1, we may hear more.

    You certainly can believe, but believe with the understanding the ages of these kids and the range of physical, intellectual and emotional differences in them all. No matter how they are taught. Not one corps has 154 kids at the very same points of maturity in these areas. Most probably tune out most noise, but all don’t tune out all noise. And I am thinking the top corps when I say this.

    When someone is critical of another persons passion, skin gets a bit thin. Even more so if criticism is unceasing.

    I guess over time with constant critiquing and it not being positive, but more of “you should do this or that” or “why do that when you can do this”; you get tired of it. And MM’s do get impacted seeing all the peanut gallery comments. That’s where it hurts a corps. Since the peanut galleries won’t shut up, not giving out all the info is the position corps now take.

    I agree with you and it is ridiculous to the extent of the silence. What is amazing about it is even folks who stop in on camps during the winter don’t say anything either. This day in age of gossiping and who can tweet or instagram before the other guy and with so much anonymity, silence prevails.

    In speaking with a corps director a couple of years ago it is twofold: they don’t want to announce a show they may not end up being able to perform as advertised. Secondly, they don’t want to hear from armchair designers and others, critiquing the show before it even gets on the field. and that does happen.

    I apologize if I offended. Seems easy to do with some people though. I’d seen bumps before (I assume you reached out to them as well) and thought it might be a way to get all discussions to the forefront and back to easier accessibility for posters. I’m not quite as glib as some posters and didn’t have time to create a less than enthusiastic reply to,imo, what are time wasting threads because those posters (same one for some) would be as guilty of what bothered you about my bumps. But that’s just my opinion, which I always thought we were allowed on DCP. So accept my sincere apology. I really mean it. o n
