  1. I don't really participate in the Halloween spirit. I would think the Boston costume from wicked games would have worked well.
  2. Cixelsyd that was a valiant effort by these kids and young adults that tried to do the virtual march on. But I am in the opinion camp that believes virtual is a waste of time and energy and is in some ways a joke. From the majority of active posters on the message board is that the hope for a season is over. The hope for corps not to fold is also fading. As someone has mentioned in another post, we are 7 months away from a season. There is no press releases coming from any of the corps. They are out of the proverbial F's to give. Also another person who has been ridiculed fo
  3. The Couchmen have not had any issues in the past. The one issue they did encounter was the DTCB (distance to cold beverages). I believe at one point penalty's were given to the Ottoman's for disruption of a clear path to cold beverages. Not sure about the specifics.
  4. True, it seems like it was ok but if you try to venture out there the wind is too strong. As in I thought it was ok to share stories and how things are having an affect.
  5. A great deal of posts but none actually indicating a corps or DCI has made any statement or additional statement regarding marching in 2021. Someone was sharing personal stories, Since it was the OP I thought it was good to go and shared my own story, only to get a back handed political reply to my post - followed up with a racism claim. Looks like self inflicted derailing of the thread to me.
  6. I'm not sure that DCI and the corps are ever going to get into the insurance statements for life or medical. If and when they do I will be interested to read such statements.
  7. DCI nor any corps that I have read - as of today have not made any statements regarding the easy or difficulty on insurance. Same on any waiver statements. So far no news. Reading a little about life insurance policies it seems you can still get them and they still honor the policies. I have a friend who had the wuhan covid-19 they mentioned to him that he might have some lingering lung issues and he has been seeing a pulmonologist for the 2 months now with a couple of Spirometry tests. His results for the FVC and FEV1 started borderline abnormal and is in the normal range the last
  8. Some corps seemed to have plenty to say during the summer on different subjects. Coming up with a statement should not be to hard for them. The comments directed at the reaction emoji is hypocrisy.
  9. Some of the trouble is that the corps seem to be hiding from making statements. Pretty weak.
  10. Cool deal. Glad for your Daughters band! Thanks for sharing.
  11. How was the competition? Did the weather cooperate?
  12. Specifically CA (west coast) and NY (east coast) coach lines are either out of business or going out of business. The ones that are not out of business have not had any revenue since March 21st or near that date. Many of the other coach lines in the rest of the country are struggling to not declare bankruptcy.
  13. You can google it if you want. Might not hurt. But your reply does prove you don't "know it all". Great news about the warm temps. Stay Frosty Oscar Mike.
  14. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm#AgeAndSex 1-4 yrs 15 5-14 yrs 39 15-24yrs 383 last updated October 21 No doubt that for those ages noted above, the survival rate is higher than 97% its probably more like 99.9%.
  15. Yeah as skevinp said, if someone starts a thread they can ask for it to be closed. I did not know that either but I have seen that on other sites message boards.
  16. During the summer you did not see any other events that did not follow the "normal" protocols?
  17. Thread is about band cancellations. Did not realize it was for band's only in one geographical location.
  18. Not really - you can plan for the worst case situation and go from there. Probably DONT include the states that have shutdowns. Leave them out. Maybe just tour in the South? Stay Frosty.
  19. Totally agree with your opinion. In the last decade the budgets for Texas schools has stayed flat (about the same). The amount of people who move to the state each day is amazing. For some districts you would think that would also increase the school budgets but in most cases it has not.
  20. What consistent guidelines from state to state that will allow DCI not to be a disaster?
  21. Some good news. Thanks for sharing the information. I think it proves a point when you look at the lack of interest here with "reply's". Has to be bad news before the band wagon starts to roll again.
  22. "Keurig is deceptively expensive, environmentally wasteful, and worst of all, its design eliminates some of the best experiences of buying, brewing, and drinking coffee." "Keurig’s packaging is a big “F you” to the environment. As Mother Jones puts it, in 2013 Green Mountain produced 8.3 billion K-Cups–or enough 2″x2″ containers to circle the globe 10.5 times. It’s enough to even make the K-Cup’s inventor renounce his own invention."
  23. So I was just about to reply with respect to the assertion that something was said in another thread that directly pertained to the subject of this thread. Obviously not. Other than weather related I can't remember entire shows or series of shows cancelled due to health reasons. Skyriders 🌈 missed more than a few shows I believe due to buses being condemned or deemed unsafe for travel on the roads. Believe that all went down in Colorado. 1987 tour. But again that was just one corps safety and I find it fishy that the Colorado department of transportation suddenly took an interest in
