  1. Pedestrians no longer have the right of way. Parades are dangerous these days and many local historical parades are being canceled. What’s next, cancel the Tournament of Roses Parade!
  2. I see more and more people leave at the Stanford show after a corps performance. Which is why we like Flo. The mute button is your friend.
  3. You’re not the only ones no longer interested. I can’t say enough bad things about Indianapolis, the list is long. The stadium is horrible for both sound and visual, not to mention uncomfortable seats and terrible concessions. A vending machine would be as good. Had to laugh at the mute button, unfortunately that has become the norm for us too when watching Flo! Mute that we don’t want to hear them. 😂
  4. I managed to avoid all the toxic people on RAMD not to mention RAMD itself. I barely waste time on here these days.
  5. Especially angry face 😡 LOL!
  6. Have to admit that I anticipate the start of each season with the photo release of the outrageous ridiculous garb that the “pageantry leeches” have come up with. There’s been more than a few doozies.
  7. 2007 Cadets This I Believe: Truth, Value,and the Personal Experience Called Drum Corps
  8. Guard doesn’t work either. What are they suppose to be guarding? Perhaps cast members!
  9. I completely disagree with you. The trend of costumes portraying a theme and/or story is IMO a colossal failure and completely unnecessary. Musical arrangements, visual drill design, and auxiliary will suffice. Props are not going to prop up a poorly designed program, no more than silly mice costumes. Designers need to consider the venue. Smaller venues like a gymnasium work better for costuming - WGI. What we learned this season is that larger venues require more uniformity for greater visual impact. Madison, Phantom, Cavaliers, Cadets and even Bluecoats uniform styles/colors created both simplicity and clarity with respect to marching design and overall visual effect. IMO less clutter more uniformity!
  10. Interesting that there are adjudicators who can determine a spread by tenths or less, but can’t explain the difference or what is required to fix it to close the spread Frankly I’m not convinced the majority of adjudicators know what clean is. From a marching standpoint fluttering, ring around the rosie, and strike a pose forms is more dirty than actual marching, yet somehow it gets rewarded above marching drill forms in unison.
  11. What differentiates WGI design productions from DCI design productions? Criteria needs to be clearly defined to separate the two competitive formats, understanding what makes each performance sport different or distinctive. Too much cross-pollination has created a mindset that both performance sport productions be designed the same for both competitive formats.
  12. Don’t believe recruiting will be an issue, however drinking from the same pool of talent as some of the destination corps is a challenge for most organizations. I’m looking forward to seeing the 2022 version of the Cadets.
