  1. That Crown's staff designs a show that wins a second title.
  2. Does any one have any updates on who is replacing Jim Coates, and if they found someone to fill the Visual Design Assistant position posted on their website? I am hoping that the design team learned some lessons from 2019 and puts a more cohesive visual package on the field. As Crown has the talent to win (music, drums, and hopefully CG with the addition of the esteemed Byron V.), so its on the design team to step up.
  3. Does anyone know if John Escalate is returning as the corps choreographer? I thought he did a good job in 2019 and a choreographer is mandatory in today's drum corps world.
  4. Does anyone have knowledge on how good of a designer Byron is? If Crown can get their color guard into top 3 they will be very formidable.
  5. I hope Crown puts it down tonight and when the corps leaves the field they know they put on there most perfect and best show of the season. I look forward to all you got. Let's go Crown!
  6. Based on what I saw and heard tonight, I think Crown will take 3rd tomorrow or Saturday night in an upset. Anyone else agree?
  7. I know this is probably an unpopular opinion, but based on what I saw and heard tonight, I think Crown is going to upset SCV and take third if not tomorrow on Saturday. Anyone agree?
  8. I'm on the plane to Indy now and could not be more excited to see Crown! I hope to meet some of you there that are going. GO CROWN!
  9. The electricity Crown produced in Allentown last night was only felt by the two blue groups at the top the night before. I hope the rest of the GE judging community can go beneath the surface of the Beast and reward the relentless execution of the performers and staff. I know someone did this a few posts up, but I could not help but join in the fun. On another note, I am very pleased Crown beat the bluecoats in Drums for the first time this season.😎 As we say in the Carolinas #keep-pounding
  10. I was at the Allentown show both nights and Crowns energy and sound got a huge crowd response. More importantly, I'm proud of their results! I hope they keep pushing hard as they have a lot of potential and room to grow imo. I also hope their GE scores start turning a corner and they earn a 3rd place finish at finals.
  11. Folks I went back and watched last night's top 6 again and I must say the judges made a statement to Crown that hard drill and their style is not appreciated nor, will it be rewarded now and into the future. That's not to say the show is perfect, but more to say that the judging community only wants to reward stuff like what Scv has on the field. This is not a knock to SCV but in my opinion Crown has a harder show both musically and visually. What I think bothers me the most is that a corps with #1 Brass and & MA scores got 6th in GE from both music GE judges. That's a rebuke of not ho
  12. I realize there are some things that could be improved in this show, especially the staging in the ballad, but overall it is an excellent product with many great moments. I did notice two of the GE judges tonight have not judged Crown in GE (G. Fugett and G.Oliviero) at all this season, so maybe that played into the volatility. Both G. MARKHAM and M. Stone have scored Crown in GE twice, of which M.Stone most recently did in Bentonville and (he/she) gave them the exact same score 5 days ago. That feels strange that not one ounce of improvement was rewarded in 5 days, but I guess M.Stone had a
  13. This will probably not happen, but based on what I saw and felt, tonight's placements would be: 1. Bloo 2. BD 3. Crown 4. SCV 5. BAC 6. Cavies 7. Stars 8. BK 9. Cadets 10. X-Men 11. PR 12. Mandarins 13. SOA 14. Academy 15. Colts 16 - 22 (everyone else as I didn't see those shows and cannot opine)
  14. Could just be me, but Crown had a better run than SCV tonight. -Thoughts?
