  1. I’m on cloud 9 getting to see live drum corps again. Everyone did exceptional, I was thoroughly impressed with all of them. Some quick thoughts: - Cadets brass sound is scary good. They could be dangerous with the right show design. Thought the traditional uniforms looked very good on the field. - Boston just continues to get better each year. The screens were more distraction than helpful to me. - Not to ruffle any feathers tho, but as a whole package, the Bluecoats are head and shoulders above everyone else right now and that seemed to be the general consensus of those around me. Just no weaknesses. Safe travels all and congrats to everyone on a magical night!
  2. My mom is coming to town from Detroit for the show as well! Small world
  3. Excited to get back to seeing live drum corps! Wanted to start a thread for tonight’s show! 81 and partly cloudy at showtime All times ET 8:00 - Welcome + National Anthem 8:05 - Rhythm IN Blue 8:20 - Columbus Saints 8:37 - Music City 8:54 - Spirit of Atlanta 9:11 - The Cadets 9:28 - Boston Crusaders 9:45 - Bluecoats
  4. As someone who was just in Italy for the past 2 months studying abroad, it was insane to see just how fast this virus spread in the course of a week. But I can attest the attitude from most people over there was very "we're fine no need to worry" and still is. Insane to see Ohio State and Kent State closing campus but good they're being proactive?
  5. Quick question for those of have gotten the disk or have in the past. Do the performances come as high camera or multi angle? Or both? Thank you advance 😊
  6. My gosh, I just got the other interpretation. Alright just to clarify, I am rooting for a second championship and that is all 😂 I’ll let them worry about their personal issues...
  7. I think I actually like the excitement of waiting until the premiere to find out what they’re doing. When they announce the show though is not really any of my business or have any effect on how I feel about the show. As long as they keep doing what they’ve been doing on the field I’ll be a happy camper 😊. I don’t know anything about this upcoming season but I’m sure Bloo will make their mark as usual. Premiere can’t come fast enough
  8. It's interesting that you say that because I've always thought the same. I think both parties should have mutual respect and love for one another. When I was in band, I didn't have a great experience with some football players, but I still couldn't wait to get on the field friday nights and play my heart out and cheer my team on, even though I don't think they had the same care for us. And they weren't bad, had decent seasons. Made the playoffs 3 of the 4 years I was there, tho lost in the first round 2 or those 3 times so there's that. And my band also played a "post game" show where we played a standstill run through of our show for the band parents who had to work concessions during games and whoever wanted to stay and here us play again, and there was usually a decent crowd, but no players stayed to watch. The year after I graduated or so the football team seemed to become the band's biggest fans, and even stayed after the game to watch and cheer the band on. And shortly after made it to back to back state title games for the first time in school history. Coincidence? Probably. But to further your point, see what happens when everyone gets along? 😂😉
  9. Fair enough, and I think there has been an obvious shift in show design. Not sure if that is because of Lucas Oil or just part of the times. But let's say finals never stayed stagnated in Indy, would show design still be as evolved as is now? And what corps would be most effected if not? I just always hear about designing the "soundscape" which is probably very much suited for indoor venues. But what if the corps that haven't been very successful with that currently didn't have to worry as much about it? There probably wouldn't be much difference but I just caught myself thinking about it haha.
  10. So it's been a little over 2 months since the season has ended, and all is quiet in DCP world as usual during the off season. I find myself often going back and watching the sparse clips of finals night performances and missing the season all over again. But then that also brought to my attention the many times I hear see people not as satisfied as having finals in a dome, let alone in the same venue year in and out. I know DCI moved championships to Indianapolis in 2008? (Please correct me if wrong haha!) And as far as I'm aware, championships were rotated around the country prior to that yearly in a majority of outdoor venues. So for the past 12 seasons, finals have been in one spot in an indoor stadium. And this started to make me wonder, would competitive results have been different over the years if this weren't the case? I know some corps have lost prominence in the Lucas Oil era and others have gained. I have not been around DCI long enough to know if this has had any profound effect on competitive results or if these are just natural rises and falls that would've happened anyways regardless. So my question to anyone out there is do you think the move to Lucas Oil has had any effect on corps success and if so how do you think results would fare today if they would have continued rotating finals around the country in outdoor domes. Hope everyone is having a great off season! 😁
  11. This year was a great year top to bottom honestly. Best I've seen yet. I'll rank the top 12 from my personal enjoyment level! 1. Bluecoats 2. The Cavaliers 3. Boston Crusaders 4. Carolina Crown 5. Crossmen 6. Santa Clara Vanguard 7. Phantom Regiment 8. Blue Stars 9. Blue Devils 10. The Cadets 11. Mandarins 12. Blue Knights I enjoy looking at everyone's list. It's interesting!
  12. After a record high year and a show as special as this, where do our 2019 silver medalist go from here? I can't wait! Discuss!
  13. Am I alittle bummed? Sure. More than deserving of a championship this year. BUT, that doesn't change how fun of a season this has been and will be remembered as! Still leading the activity in innovation and more than on the right track competitively. They know what they need to do. They'll be in the running again next year..... Time for bed. THANK YOU BLOO. It's been a pleasuring watching you all season! 💙 p.s. I know we got second, but why is no one talking about a new record score for this corps! (Was in the process of typing this and didn't see everyone talking about it LOL)
  14. Even in defeat, Bloo has a new personal high score. I’ll take it. Congrats to all tonight!
