  1. Don’t even have good enough sense to get in out of the rain.

    40 year dominance

    It was only a thought. Doubt seriously if it would ever be considered.

    40 year dominance

    I’m not here to debate any issues on this form, so speak to the mirror. The cost of touring is currently affecting the activity participant organizations. If the activity loses another organization or two so be it, but eventually there will be 12 or 10 or 7. It’s not sustainable.

    FYI - I wasn’t talking about any specific organizations budget. However a budget cap may allow for parity. Either way the cost of touring is a burden that few can continue to afford. It’s unsustainable at its current level. 1.6 to 1.8 million is a hard nut to crack each year and it looks like the price of meat will continue to increase. FYI the activity was just fine with local geographic membership, a lot more corps too. But I guess you would have had to been there to know.

    Until there is a cap on expenditures and geographic recruiting restrictions, don’t expect to see much change. 1.6-1.8 million dollars to operate a nonprofit is IMO out of control.

  8. As long as the corps is being judged on DCA sheets at a DCI sanctioned contest, then that score can be used for prelims seeding if you have not received a score from a DCA sanctioned contest.

    I believe CT DCI scores have been of great value considering the line-ups of DCI corps and International corps (Jubal) we perform with. Scores are opinions and opinions change. CT DCI season scores: Mason 65.550, Alexandria 62.950, White Lake 67.750, Centerville 71.350 DCA score: Peckville 72.150 No more shows until BillsPort, lot of rehearsal between then and now. Lot of work to do to get better. CT expects to be on first in DCA Prelims, it's nothing new, we're always first on.

    Centerville, OH - July 30, 2018

    Thanks! We had our best run of the weekend mini tour. Lots of work got done and the organization handled the tour well. No more performances until DCA prelims. The rehearsal schedule is in place to integrate some minor changes and planned layering. Plus a few prop surprises. Back to work and getting better.

    Peckville Order Or Times?

    CT - 36 brass: all brass holes are filled. 40 brass - three tubas, and a trumpet couldn’t make the trip. There were four guard that didn’t make the trip too. Incredible experience for the CT organization in their first ever DCA Open Class competition. The Peckville audience was very genuine with their applause, the judges critique was excellent as well as the show venue, and a wonderfully organized and well run Regional show event. We’re on our way to White Lake MI. Tomorrow is another day for the organization to get better. Thanks to DCA and all the participating corps who made this show a success.

    Madison Scouts 2018

    IMO the pursuit to imitate has caused this organization to become less confident in their own abilities to be in the forefront. With any corporation, the management rarely views themselves as part of or the problem. Usually centers around complacency. If you change nothing, nothing's going to change. It doesn't mean you open the doors and sweep everything and everyone out. The organization should find common ground and do strategic planning. Amazing what happens when you lock 12 people in a room for a few days and do strategic planning.
  20. I turn to Frank in these matters. You will obey me while I lead you And eat the garbage that I feed you Until the day that we don't need you Don't go for help . . . no one will heed you Your mind is totally controlled It has been stuffed into my mold And you will do as you are told Until the rights to you are sold That's right, folks . . . Don't touch that dial
  21. I have no tolerance for imprudent responses.
