  1. Still a great topic, and still one with many if not most of the same answers as before...I’ll stick with a couple of previously mentioned (and cliched) answers. For me, it’s SCV 87 and 88. My first introduction to drum corps was in 1990 (my band director’s finals tapes) where the first corps I ever remember obsessing over was 90 Cavies. I’ve owned and studied the late 80s years now for a long time, but just knowing that DCI had been in my state (St. Louis area here) for finals the two years before I fell in love/even knew of the activity is tough to look back on. If I had to pick one though, i
  2. Or because that would only be two consecutive titles?
  3. I’m gonna dive a little deeper into my personal biases here with my personal fav, then who I thought shoulda won: 83- Garfield x2 84- Garfield x2 85- Garfield x2 86- Garfield (totally uneven show but freaking loved On The Waterfront), BD rightful (dominant) champion 87- SCV (favorite opener/single chart in DCI history w their Russian Xmas Music...my god), but Garfield deserved to win overall 88- SCV (it’s my favorite drum corps show ever...not the cleanest, but it’s my pick if I have to choose one), Scouts FTW (so effing polished, so effing emotional and a
  4. Goodness. Thank you for posting this. What a tragedy, but what a beautiful moment (the kind that only DCI can create). I was instantly taken back to 99 SCV playing Send In the Clowns for the Velarde Family. Both performances moved me to tears. I can only imagine what a bittersweet and heartbreaking moment that was for Dayton’s family. I’m officially Team Cavies the rest of the way this summer, even if that comes at the expense of my alum corps (BK, in case you couldn’t tell). That was just the video I needed to see tonight after a crap day one of drum camp at my HS 😒. Puts it all back in
  5. Definitely felt like BD was the favorite heading into Finals week in 95. They hadn’t been beaten in two years at that point. When we all got to Buffalo and it was clear they were dropping, it was a huge surprise (though not in retrospect). And yes, the Day Danse triplet roll redux (same roll was nails in 94 finals run) was...not a great moment for BD’s drums on Finals night. First choice that came to mind for me was Cadets 97 (Year of the Dragon show). Granted, BD made it close at a couple stops, but that show had the feel of a champion and it felt like Cadets were due at that poin
