  2. Tim Snyder returns to Troopers as Program Coordinator. https://www.troopersdrumcorps.org/single-post/2020/09/17/announcing-the-return-of-tim-snyder-as-program-coordinator?fbclid=IwAR0wVbuph8b2zTJt9taRdSuqiFXhRSZxtw8DkaoCcY9hvnhMxuwaAIiSrwI
  3. Just saw on Reddit a note from the "former" BCH at Troopers that the whole brass staff was being replaced. He said it wasn't something bad, just that the corps was going in a new direction or something like that.
  4. Just in case someone decides to do a cheerful show - not holding my breath on that one!
  5. I would guess that of the 2020 corps, over half of them were from Tennessee and the surrounding states of Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, etc. And probably 30+ were from the Nashville area.
  6. Here's a most enlightening and encouraging article in The Atlantic - "the plan that could give us our lives back". "How to test every American for Covid 19 every day." https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/08/how-to-test-every-american-for-covid-19-every-day/615217/?fbclid=IwAR15chGLAhIheiWVWsmYByMUB-213E9ZIrZs1kUUW_4hNBTntjsqXzLSxmk
  7. Thanks for posting this CrownBariDad. It was refreshing.
  8. There are two Instagram accounts and one of them has a video of Ike talking. One of them is @racisminmarchingarts and the other one is @bandsafespace.
  9. Hi Terri - I hope you and hubby are doing well in all of this craziness.

    Do you have any thoughts about why DCP is staying mum about the whole Ike Jackson/Mandarins drama being covered so thoroughly on Redditt, Instagram, and Twitter?  The kids are getting bolder and have taken this thing by the horns and so I just now saw on Redditt and Twitter that the Mandarins have opened an investigation into the allegations against Ike.  Pretty big stuff for DCP to not mention - but maybe they are being more cautious these days.

    That's all.  Over and out!

  10. I had to Google "virtue signaling" to find out what it means. Got this: "the action or practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one's good character or the moral correctness of one's position on a particular issue."
