  1. When Phantom went co-ed, then back, and then switched to being open to all again, I heard many comments that, at best, were ill-informed and bad humor and, at worst, hate-filled and homophobic.
  2. Please explain why you hope that this is the beginning of a trend?
  3. My heart is breaking for MMs who were subjected to awful treatment (at best) and assualt (at worst), not to mention legitimate safety concerns. There isn't 1 person who marched in 2018 who will come back. That speaks volumes - no matter what your experience was 4 years ago. I still don't understand why we struggle to listen and believe people (especially when they speak in such large numbers).
  4. George Hopkins just posted on FB that he is moving to Milwaukee for a new career opportunity. WTF?!?!

    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    Can confirm that at least one media outlet is working on a story about OC. Yucky yucky yucky news. The stories I have heard are bad. Ugh

    2019 Madison Scouts!

    They are going to have a hard time filling their guard. Not just with strong performers, but literally having enough people audition to fill spots. There will likely be news in the next few weeks. I would absolutely love it if I was wrong (who would want any corps to not do well!?!) but from all that I have heard, it's going to be a pretty big hill to climb.

    2019 Predictions!

    This is perhaps one of the craziest things said on DCP this year. So simply having a rotating stage causes a corps to rise 3 spots? Why haven't other corps figured this out yet? If your comment was so offensive to the staff and MMs of Mandarins, I would be laughing all day.
  8. If you are more upset at a MM bringing more attention to a staff member who raped those in his organization than a Corps Director who engaged in decades of sexual abuse, than you are part of the problem.

    2019 Predictions!

    BOLD PREDICTIONS SCV and BD will finish 2nd and 3rd (or 3rd and 2nd) Blue Stars, Cavaliers and Phantom Regiment will drop in placement Cadets, Mandarins and Crossmen will rise in placement Madison Scouts will finish lower (I write that with a heavy heart) 1 World Class corps will go inactive for 2019

    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    I have heard that a corps that has been on the rise and had a historic season (not to mention a fan favorite show) will have 100% staff retention. This year was NOT a flash in the pan. I know 2018 just ended, but I'm already excited for 2019!!!!
  11. I feel 2 corps were overscored or placed higher. I feel 3 corps were underscored and deserved to place higher. This year is the best year of drum corps in at least 20 years. I hope every MM is embracing and cherishing every moment
  12. Today I offer a prayer to those on the field and those off the field. I pray for air for thy horn, rhythm for thy drum, sassiness for thy flag, and pizazz for thy performance. All of the hard work and training will power you forward. Leave it all of the field and remember, no matter hard it is to believe, you will never have this moment again. Bask in it, enjoy it, and perform with every drop that is within you. Blessed be. Amen

    Madison Scouts 2018

    Out of respect to current MMs I’ll wait until after the season is over for a detailed response, but it is due to a combination of staff turnover/departures and unique challenges that the corps faced this year.

    Im not sure about other sections, but I think it is a safe bet to say that no MM in the guard will be returning. 100% turnover. Thats a massive problem.
  15. Holy crap! Way to go Mandarins!! The show is so layered and different! I feel like everyone is rooting for you and Lucas Stadium will go absolutely insane when you are announced finishing where I hope and think you will end up on finals night!! what an absolutely incredible year!!!
