  1. Sadly my list is quite a bit shorter, but I look forward to your play-by-play!
  2. I like the train of thought, but not sure how effective it would be. Last year I talked several people into going to the theater premiere. The sound was out of balance (all treble), the live feed quit during Crown, and the videography at the premiere is closer to Flo quality at that point in the season. Needless to say, they weren’t all that impressed. I took them to a Bluecoats practice later in the season and they were speechless. There’s something about getting your face blown off (live) that changes everything. I think the theater premiere is perfect for fans that want a first glimpse, but a tough sell for the uninitiated.
  3. That spreadsheet is fantastic! Thanks for building and posting!
  4. Idk background info, and I agree the Michigan City stadium is a fantastic venue. We watched Bluecoats rehearse in the IWU stadium last year and it’s also a great stadium/set up with great space for an activity like this.
  5. I don’t disagree, I hear you. I think you're example of Pioneer is much different than say Mandarins/Colts/Academy, etc. since they’re (currently) much farther away. I know they’re all working really hard.
  6. I seem to recall when it was being discussed that it was those in the low teens that did not want it to pass. I recall discussion about not wanting to lower the bar. That makes sense to me since top 6 or so are fighting it out for medals, 7-12 ish are fighting to be in top 6, and the next tier are fighting to be in top 12. For example, if I was in Mandarins right now I’d want to finish what we started and earn my spot; not change the rules to make it easier. Likewise, corps like Scouts are fighting to stay. I’ll be bummed if they fall out again but it’s the fight that makes it worthwhile. I also understand the arguments for change as posted previously, just offering a different perspective.
  7. Thanks for the play by play! I don’t know how you looked down long enough to type, but as proud parents that can’t be there, it’s greatly appreciated!
  8. I think Flo is off to a great start. Watched the first show at a friends via Roku and DCI west via Apple TV. Solid pic, good sound balance (for not being there), and even solid multi cam work. Good job Flo!
  9. True. Love the chart... much more movement (for most) than I would have guessed.
  10. So true. I can’t wait to see what everyone has to offer this year. The assessment you made for top 6 could easily apply to who will stay in top 12. Manderins and Academy in particular have been pushing so hard and Colts and Troopers are right on their heels. I find each year it’s harder and harder to go watch the lot because I don’t want to miss the full shows. Heck, even bathroom breaks are getting harder to time! It’s going to be another great year!
