    Spirit of Atlanta 2018 (biased of course), but after that, it's a tie - Bluecoats 2015 and Phantom Regiment 2010

  1. Bump! Hoping the upward trajectory continues this year. P.S. my son did “retire” after one season of drum corps. He really enjoyed the experience but needs to spend the summer working on grad school music pre-audition material in advance of auditions next year. He’s looking forward to seeing Spirit on their Texas swing this summer (as am I).
  2. I’d like to know what, if anything, had to be edited out. Hoping Spirit’s entire performance made the CD.
  3. Excited about next year. Few age-outs (I think 17 from what I heard), and apparently a lot of returnees (my son may be one - still TBD). I don't know enough to comment on yesterday's Visual Caption announcement so I will defer to others who know more than me (which is most of you). They should certainly be in the hunt to make finals for the first time since 2013.
  4. Enjoy your son's two performances coming up!!!! I think #3 is out of reach, barring something incredibly unusual. I don't know the last time a corps overcame a 1.25 point deficit after prelims to nab a spot in finals. I know Boston was down like .7 or .8 two years ago to Madison, but that's a sizable difference.
  5. The last time I saw my son perform at Lucas Oil was at BOA Grand Nationals finals in 2014. Looking forward to seeing him with Spirit and the other corps (sadly I won't be there for the entire day, but a nice chunk of it). It's been a great ride for them this season....very proud of their resurgence this year. KSA SOA!
  6. According to my son Spirit had their best run to date. Hoping when I’m in Lucas Oil tomorrow it’s even better.
  7. I really don't know that we'll have a good handle on that until prelims scores are in Thursday night. In any event, a tremendous season for Spirit regardless of which day their last performance occurs.
  8. Thanks in advance for any pics you can get of Spirit (and if you can't, totally understand - and you've done a beyond amazing job so far). I'll be on a plane set to depart right about the time they perform on FloMarching (but my wife will luckily get to see them). KSA SOA!
  9. Thanks - I see my son in one of those pics. Love your detail.
  10. Current numbers 14, 13, 12 and 11 - that sure worked out nicely. But the long-term weather forecast for Friday and Saturday - that's another story. Hoping that does not come to fruition.
  11. If Spirit makes finals that would be awesome; and if they don't, that is OK, too - they have had a season to remember regardless of the final outcome. It sure would be nice, though, if the morning of Semis that a discussion would still be ongoing about who could end up 12th and it would not be basically a done deal for the top 12.
  12. First time this year Spirit has dropped in score.
  13. As someone who has followed the activity for 5 years now, even more so this year with my son participating in another corps, I cannot express enough appreciation for what Bloo has brought to the activity over the last 5 years. There is no other corps whose shows I have collectively enjoyed more than their offerings. So thank you for being .... Bloo.
