  1. Why are you doing this? 2019 shows would of been laughed at in 1989. Different score sheets, different style of design, etc...... A better question would be what shows would be able to compete in this day of age with the current scoring system?
  2. I feel bad for the PR design team, maybe they thought they had a solid design but the structural design of the show isn't there and the execution is way off (for now) or maybe they have a young group that isn't rising to the levels of the staff, I don't know? PR members and staff are working with a show that they were given and designed and now both need to deliver a worthy finals caliber show. But I bet that they are hearing it from the judges across all captions. So all the could of, would of, should of is pointless. Let the season evolve and play out. Maybe PR will surprise everyone and over come early season obstacles and surprise everyone. Best of luck PR! I will keep an open mind.
  3. Here we go again, so I took this from the DCI site. Just to clarify! Responsibilities: One of the GE judges has a music background and the other has a visual background, but each utilizes the same judging sheet because they are effectively judging the entire show, not just the effect of the music offering or the effect of the visual production. GE judges must be the most experienced, most knowledgeable, and most flexible members of the audience. Plus, they know how to manage numbers in order to give a proper score. The GE judges are doing the romantic job, they’re feeling what the show is offering and responding to what the show is. There are three parts to GE, the intellectual, the aesthetic, and the emotional.
  4. 1. Who ever scores the highest in GE and Visual at Finals. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Congratulations you made the cut! Thank your design team! Hoping for a great season. I am open to anyone/group who is innovative and thoroughly thought out their show and are able to maximize their music and visual and are performing at a high level! Bring it!
  5. Waiting patiently to see and hear another amazing show! #NHHH just like the Met Gala!!!!
  6. Agree, Crown better bring it! Can't wait see and hear what they have planned for 2019!
  7. I believe their GE and Visual scores overall at finals begs to differ. Thou you may not like the uniform. I think that the judges liked the concept and those performers and corp made it work! Thank you Blue Stars for thinking outside the box and coming up an original costume for a uniform!
  8. Predictions for 2019 1. either: Blue Devils/Crown/Bluecoats/Santa Clara Vanguard/Boston Crusaders 2. either: Blue Devils/Crown/Bluecoats/Santa Clara Vanguard/Boston Crusaders 3. either: Blue Devils/Crown/Bluecoats/Santa Clara Vanguard/Boston Crusaders 4. either: Blue Devils/Crown/Bluecoats/Santa Clara Vanguard/Boston Crusaders 5. Cadets/Cavaliers - if no one falls down 6. Cadets/Cavaliers - no tarps this season
  9. Santa Clara Vanguard Bluecoats Blue Stars Blue Devils Mandarins Crown Honorable Mention: Boston Crusaders
  10. Too clever, no! It wasn't original by any stretch! James Logan World Guard did it in 1999! Maybe that is why they didn't medal!
  11. My two cents: Have two judges, judge the caption awards during finals (guard, brass, percussion)!
  12. One win is not a trend, caption award dominance maybe but this is too early to tell.
  13. I fixed the thread THE FUTURE IS HERE! Caption: General Effect (GE) Number of judges: Two for most of the season, plus a doubled panel of four during Premier Events (e.g. San Antonio, Atlanta, Allentown) and the World Championships. Points allotted: 40, 20 from each of the two judges. The scores of the two Effect captions are counted for full value. When the panel is doubled, the score of all four judges is divided in half. Responsibilities: One of the GE judges has a music background and the other has a visual background, but each utilizes the same judging sheet because they are effectively judging the entire show, not just the effect of the music offering or the effect of the visual production. GE judges must be the most experienced, most knowledgeable, and most flexible members of the audience. Plus, they know how to manage numbers in order to give a proper score. The GE judges are doing the romantic job, they’re feeling what the show is offering and responding to what the show is. There are three parts to GE, the intellectual, the aesthetic, and the emotional. The corp that best integrates music, visual, brass, percussion and guard in a coherent fashion that is engaging, designed and executed extremely well WINS!!!
