  1. With a Shaw arrangement of this version, this could be another historical moment for PR! πŸ™Œ
  2. Anything that Paul Lovatt Cooper has composed has translated well to the field! Love his work. πŸ™Œ
  3. Well, one time is too many if you're spending up to $3k on hotel, flight, food, rental, etc for the week. That's why I'm perfectly fine with the Lucas Oil venue. I would be ok with any other indoor facility to avoid weather issues. βœ… Adding: DCI does a great job taking measures to control the reverb in Lucas Oil. The black curtains really helps with the acoustics.
  4. BAC will handle the glitches. πŸ˜πŸ‘
  5. Grab my reading glasses? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚
  6. Has anyone registered for Phancon? Just wondering what is required for registration. Would like to register later this afternoon when I get home for the premiere.
  7. For trivia's sake, the Jacksonville show on the JSU campus was called the "Battle of the Brass". I think it was a home show for Spirit of Atlanta. Great show & venue. JSU is hosting Spirit's spring training right now & their preview show is Saturday, June 29th in the same, but upgraded stadium.
  8. Just give them the ole' American Bandstand 'rate-a-record' response. "They had a good beat & it was easy to dance to". That would definitely work for Crown's "Right Here, Right Now". 😁
  9. Awesome! Make sure to have some of their sausage. I’ve had it many times while camping or fishing. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚
  10. Well that hurts. πŸ˜‚ I love my knit ties but I usually wear the 'clip on' traditional style & cut the v part off of the bottom.
  11. Come on; Anna established the benchmark & even went viral. Someone needs to be 'burned at the stake'. 😁
  12. I think we had the Slingerland model in the late 70s early 80s. & they did have the 'acorn' bead. They were like a long log & heavy. I think Ludwig had a 3s model as well, but weren't as heavy. Update; started googling. These were on eBay but sold. Scroll down to see them: https://www.ebay.com/itm/166760151780?chn=ps&mkevt=1&mkcid=28 Ludwig model: https://www.ebay.com/itm/166760153546?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D266916%2C266799%26meid%3Dc221e9118a524799af68ad6d8d50cc82%26pid%3D101224%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D166760151780%26itm%3D166760153546%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2332490%26algv%3DDefaultOrganicWebV9BertRefreshRankerWithCassiniEmbRecall%26brand%3DLudwig&_trksid=p2332490.c101224.m-1
  13. It's Christmas in June for the kiddos! πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸŽ„ (video: or in this case, the whole season)
  14. My one experience in Louisville wasn't great. Picture was fine but it just wasn't loud enough. Felt like I needed a hearing aide. 😁
  15. Not surprising at all; two years ago they left off the first three rows at the Tupelo show, so everyone had to back up three rows. They were still trying to figure it out right at step off. It was a total mess & I sat in a different seat where a guy had extras not being used. Folks were upset & a DCI rep snapped at me for trying to explain what had happened. Wasn't a good look for the DCI staff. This was the year they had several issues at different shows including Murfreesboro. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  16. Nope - I wanted to stop over to attend the theater show in Louisville on the way to Muncie. Worked well two years ago.
  17. OK, I've been studying this google image. That has to be white 'rental' chairs set up for graduation during COVID.. The Egg Harbor HS enrollment is some 2300+ students & there's almost 500 chairs set up in the spiral rows. Several schools in my area use the white rental chairs where we use chairs with black covers. The chairs on the track are probably for faculty? Schools systems used a different set up during the pandemic. We were spread from the end zone to the opposite 35-40 yd line. I think it's set up for their graduation. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ§πŸŽ“
  18. Here's a link to the article released today for the 2024 performance order: https://dci.org/news/explainer-how-performance-order-is-set-for-2024-dci-tour?utm_source=sfmc&utm_medium=email EXPLAINER: How performance order is set for 2024 DCI Tour by Drum Corps International Performance order for World Class-centric events through July 19 and Open Class and All-Age events through August 4 has now been set for the 2024 DCI Summer Tour. While the process is primarily based on competitive finish from the 2023 DCI World Championships*, other factors also come into play. Participating corps are separated into classes (World Class, Open Class World Championship participants, Open Class non-World Championship participants, All-Age based on separate β€˜A’, Open and World Class competitive classifications), then into groups of three (first through third, fourth through sixth, etc.). Performance order is then randomized within those groupings as applicable. For example, as 2023’s top three finishers Blue Devils, Bluecoats and Carolina Crown exist in one grouping of three, they will have performance order randomized at any head-to-head events prior to July 20. Pre-July 19 Performance Order Worksheet To help illustrate the systems in place for 2024 DCI Tour performance order selection at aforementioned events, consider a sample event featuring the following corps: Blue Devils, Carolina Crown, Mandarins, Troopers, Blue Stars, Blue Knights, Spartans, Gold, The Battalion, Impulse, Blue Devils B, Vessel, Bushwackers, Hurricanes and Columbus Saints. Corps are first separated into classes. This sample lineup features six World Class corps, three Open Class championship participants, three Open Class non-championship participants, and three All-Age corps. Within these classes, corps are organized into their respective groups of three, based on 2023 competitive finish. Order would be randomized between Blue Devils (1st in 2023) and Carolina Crown (3rd), as they fall into the same grouping of three amongst 2023’s World Class competitors. Mandarins (6th) would follow next, with Troopers (10th), Blue Stars (11th) and Blue Knights (12th) all randomized, as they fall into the same trio. Next would be a random draw between Spartans (1st in Open Class) and Gold (2nd), followed by The Battalion. A full draw between Blue Devils B, Impulse, and Vessel wraps up the Open Class block. All-Age corps round out the lineup, ordered by their competitive classification as previously noted. Following these steps, the performance order for this example event may look as follows: ALL-AGE 1. Columbus Saints (A) 2. Hurricanes (Open) 3. Bushwackers (World) OPEN CLASS NON-CHAMPIONSHIP 4. Impulse 5. Blue Devils B 6. Vessel OPEN CLASS CHAMPIONSHIP 7. The Battalion 8. Spartans 9. Gold WORLD CLASS 10. Blue Knights 11. Troopers 12. Blue Stars 13. Mandarins 14. Blue Devils 15. Carolina Crown VIEW THE COMPLETE 2024 DCI TOUR SCHEDULE AND LINEUPS Mid- and End-Of-Season Events Performance order for key DCI Premier Events and other DCI Tour events after July 19, will be figured by the following: 1. | Order for the DCI Southwestern Championship in San Antonio (July 20), will be based on reverse order of placement from July 13 events in Little Rock, Fort Collins and DeKalb, and drawn at random in groups of threes. Corps not appearing in any of those events will be placed in the order based on their last score received. 2. | At all weekday events following July 20 in San Antonio, as well as select weekend events, performance order will be based on reverse order of placement from the DCI Southwestern Championship and drawn at random in groups of three. 3. | Performance order for the DCI Southeastern Championship (July 27 in Atlanta) and NightBEAT (July 28 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina) will be based on reverse order of placement from the Southwestern Championship and drawn at random in groupings of three. 4. | DCI Eastern Classic (August 2-3 in Allentown) performance orders will be based on reverse order of placement from the DCI Southeastern Championship (Atlanta) and NightBeat (Winston-Salem). For corps only performing in one of those two events, their individual score will be used. Corps participating in both events will have their two scores averaged. Final order will be drawn at random, in groupings of three. 5. | Open Class DCI World Championship Prelims (August 5 in Marion, Indiana) performance order will be determined by the reverse order of placement from August 3 events in Evansville, Indiana and Mattoon, Illinois. 6. | Order of appearance at the DCI World Championship Prelims (August 8 in Indianapolis) will be based on the reverse order of finish of scores averaged from events in San Antonio, Atlanta, Winston-Salem, and Allentown. Open Class participants will be seeded in the first blocks of performing corps based on reverse order of finish from Open Class Championship events. In the event a corps is not scheduled to appear in a major regional event, their last score received prior to that regional event will be used for averaging purposes. 7. | Order of appearance at the inaugural DCI All-Age World Championship (August 10 in Indianapolis) will be based on the reverse order of each corps' highest score of the season, before being divided by competitive classification. * Santa Clara Vanguard, who did not compete at the 2024 DCI World Championship, is inserted into the bottom of 2023’s standings.
