  1. I have registered on the DCPI website, I am aware the next season doesn't start until June
  2. I brought it up for when this post was big in either 2017 or 2018 but I'll probably say it again Chevaliers de Sangreal by Hans Zimmer
  3. I feel like there's a lack of a memorable ocean show, it's a really basic concept like a space show and I'm not talking about Boston 2018 like a straight up Ocean Show. It could start really graceful and calm using Ocean Bloom by Radiohead and Hans Zimmer. As the show progresses there could be a storm section with a buildup and lightning and thunder and those lightning bolt rifles Vanguard used in 2016. As the ballad begins, it's like the calm after the storm. The closer could be a really triumphant and proud ending, displaying the beauty and mystery of the ocean in its full power. The props could be coral laid out across the field in a random pattern. During the storm section, hinges could be released, breaking the coral and through the ballad and closer it's slowly rebuilt. Mvt 1: Oceans, Mvt 2: Storm, Mvt 3: Calm, Mvt 4: Deep Blue Sea An alternative to the storm concept is instead starting at the shallows and going deeper and deeper, getting darker and more mysterious. Mvt 1: The Shallows - A calmer movement to start off the show, could again feature Ocean Bloom Mvt 2: The Abyss - Darker, more intense sound as you get deeper and light fades Mvt 3: The Floor - Out of the darkness you see a light, and another, and another. Small creatures surviving at the bottom of the ocean, their light's all you can see in the infinite abyss. This would be a very beautiful ballad. Although it has nothing to do with the ocean, Chevaliers de Sangreal by Hans Zimmer would sound really good. Mvt 4: The Ocean - Again, a triumphant, loud, impactful, exciting movement. The beauty of the Oceans and its infinite mysteries on a field. Well I put more effort into this than I thought, I need a life.
  4. I just found the original post. It may be a bit dated as it is from January of this year but it seems that Vessel and Armada attempted in 2018 with only Vessel joining Open. Armada may try again in 2019 but I doubt they’ll be approved. Additionally Arsenal, Encorps, Rivermen, Appalachian Sound, Appalachian Gold, and Hub City Guardians may all try to apply for Open Class in 2019. Lone Star, Storm, and Florida Xpress may join Open in 2020. Original posting:
  5. I think it’s more likely corps will try to apply for Open Class, I believe Arsenal wanted to try in 2019.
  6. Academy was hit with a stomach virus in Texas and had to choose to miss the event. It started with Academy (we like to refer to it as the Academic Plague) but spread to Phantom, Mandarins, Cadets and later Crown. A couple members over here at Cascades are getting a bit sick too but no major outbreak. posted from the DrumScorps app
  7. Actually we’ll be in La Conner for all days this year.
  8. Unfortunately they've only posted the streaming schedule up to DCI Central Texas and since I leave for move ins on the 15th I won't exactly have a computer to keep track of things. Maybe after the season ends haha.
  9. That makes sense and I think Regionals are the home city corps, Cadets for Eastern, Spirit for Southeastern, and Crossmen for Southwestern. They chose Crown for Midwestern this year and Legends for Minnesota.
  10. So on the Schedule tab of it shows all the shows and a picture of a corps along with it. I like statistics and numbers and here's what I found: First World Class Corps featured: Blue Stars Last World Class Corps featured: The Cadets First Open Class Corps featured: Blue Devils B Last Open Class Corps featured: Colts Cadets Not Pictured At All: Blue Devils C, Heat Wave, Incognito, and Vessel (of course it's their first season back) World Class Stats Boston Crusaders - 6* Carolina Crown - 5* Bluecoats - 4* Colts, Genesis, Pacific Crest, Spirit of Atlanta, Troopers - 4 Blue Devils, Blue Knights, Blue Stars, The Cadets, The Cavaliers, Crossmen, Madison Scouts, Phantom Regiment - 3* Seattle Cascades - 3 Music City, Santa Clara Vanguard - 2* The Academy, Jersey Surf, Mandarins, Oregon Crusaders - 2 Pioneer - 1 Open Class Stats Blue Devils B, Legends - 3* 7th Regiment, Guardians, Louisiana Stars, Raiders, River City Rhythm, Southwind, Spartans - 2* The Battalion, Colts Cadets, Impulse, Shadow - 2 Gold, Vanguard Cadets - 1* Columbians, Golden Empire, Watchmen, Les Stentors (although they're inactive for 2018) - 1 The Company - 0* (No individual picture only from Open Class retreat) Blue Devils C, Heat Wave, Incognito, Vessel - 0 * An asterisk means that they were also featured once on the full retreat pic for either Open Class Finals or World Championships, I mainly took data for individual features. PSA: Not trying to push an agenda or anything, I just like statistics
