  1. I think they didn’t use the tarp at any of the shows where it was windy because of the risk of bunching/lifting up and causing members to trip.
  2. Yeah I was surprised they used that so early in the show instead of at the end.
  3. Their show is based on prolific Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, her creative process, and--more specifically--her piece "Flower Obsession." If you do a quick search on that piece, the Mandarins show elements suddenly make a LOT more sense.
  4. Probably the shakiest of the three Mandarins performances this weekend. Three shows in three days with travel maybe got to them a bit. Still love the power in their sound though.
  5. I have no doubt that feedback regarding this change will be a hot topic among judges when they next convene, and I'm going to trust them to decide its fate over the opinions of us armchair judges.
  6. Well clearly Plato is biased against one of them. 😜🙃
  7. Someone will do a show based on the musical "Hadestown." Now, that's not REALLY a prediction so much as it's me putting that out into the universe and hoping some show designer will pick it up.
  8. In case someone hasn't already answered this later in the thread, no. In 1989, Star of Indiana earned 6th place with a 95.30.
  9. I’ve been wondering the same thing all season.
  10. I do think DCI needs to be a little stricter about guidelines for who judges finals--mainly, they should have judged at least one regional OR have judged every World Class corps at least once. Orefice (who judges Visual Proficiency tomorrow at Finals) has never judged SCV, Cavies, Blue Knights, and Mandarins before. That's a LOT of corps to have a first-read on at DCI Finals. I'm not questioning that judge's ability, but none of those corps have ever gotten feedback of any kind from that particular judge.
  11. HUGE congrats to the Mandarins, who have broken the years-long bad luck streak of first-time finalists not returning to finals the following year. You've shown the world that last year was NOT a fluke, and I couldn't be happier for or prouder of you all! Enjoy the crap out of performing in finals tomorrow!
