    Regiment Ramblings (What If?)

    I would like to know what happened after 2010?? Into the Light was such a great step towards more modern programming and a fantastic Rosander drill. Turandot was a great follow up but a bit of a step back into their shell. Into the Light was such a fan favorite I’ve always wondered why they immediately went backwards in design? Grumpy old alumni??

    Relative Newbie

    Has not been mentioned yet but you will want to watch Suncoast Sound 1988...easily 15 years ahead of its time.

    More protection for trainers

    Athletic supporters already give plenty of protection.
  6. Guns are inherently political...stepping into a quagmire there.
  7. Some just never learn when it’s not appropriate to get into political statements...and when you do keep it classy and subtle. Lady Gaga at the super bowl covering This Land is Your Land is a perfect example.

    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    Natural woman had potential but felt derivative and forced after Everything Must Change. I understand that every year is supposed to be judged independently but when you have that impression of the ballad and they also play Laura and bring back the mosaic theme from 1930...you get the feeling the design was mailed in. Loved the Harlem Nocturne section though...but I cannot forgive hearing brass performance issues on finals week...this is freaking BD!!

    Relentless was great up to that ending and even parts of 2017 were good but the rest...you know where I’m going. This year was just silly...BD and Crown were saved this year because of the talent level of their membership and not design.

    Now they just need a program that doesn’t suck.

    Caption Awards

    I find it refreshing that they echo a lot of my opinions about the activity. Not the sanitized crap that comes from dci and most corps themselves.

    Caption Awards

    The judge on finals night knows the required spread to guarantee a caption win...despite given BD the top spot on finals night the spread was kept close enough to allow BAC to win. Read all you want into that.

    DCI By the Decades - The 1990s

    Star was there only the first four years of the decade and were still that dominate in the medals...that is impressive
