  1. Yeah they won one title in the approximately six years they’ve been doing it 😊 It’s a new decade now start a new trend 😏
  2. Honestly I wish they would announce the show much earlier than the first show of the year. think about it they’ve done it for how many years... predictable is not a good look 😁
  3. For me it last happened in 2016 I was pulling for Bluecoats and Crown as I loved both those shows. Was really pulling for Bluecoats in 2019.
  4. With all due respect Jeff this topic/thread is basically Madison Scouts 2019 part 2 of 2 . So to be more logical why don’t we have the poster remove the year from the title and have it just say Madison Scouts? Why bother putting the year if the topic/thread is going to host discussions about anything and everything in the history of the corps? Just put a note here saying all discussions are going to be continued at topic X In the thresd/topic Starting with page X we’re going to allow 2020 only discussions
  5. I’m not saying these discussions should cease and should be swept under the rug I’m not saying that at all. What I am saying this should be happening in a different topic/thread. Is that so unreasonable? If so please explain .
  6. Hey simply put I don’t want (I would gather no one else would either ) to sift through three pages of posts to try and not miss a post about how a recent camp went. I’m not saying these discussions can’t be had I’m just saying just do it in another thread. Call it Madison scouts; the good the bad and the ugly
  7. Interesting attempt problem is the 0T stuff in this thread has been going on for months 😠
  8. Hey moderators can you reel this thing in a little bit? Honestly everything and the kitchen sink is being discussed in this thread and has zero to do with the upcoming season. Do your jobs please!
  9. Yeah they’re like kids in a candy store they can’t help themselves. have zero professionalism, clue and just want toys And are going drive this activity right to the poorhouse! The only fun part of this is when they push things too far and are all standing around looking each other wondering why the activity doesn’t exist anymore
  10. Oh I hear you. I don’t want or like any instrument changes. I don’t even like trombones French horns..etc. Not me but someone else might say trombones are brass but when you put flutes out there you totally change and ruin the whole thing (ie sound). I think that’s the dangerous line you cross with some people in regards to using woodwinds . Just some random thoughts… 😊
  11. I don’t think you would ever see a full line of woodwinds on the field it would be for solos small ensembles in the pit area stuff like that
  12. That everyone has a safe and fun summer No additional instrumentation permitted The makers, shakers and creators in the activity fall in love with drum corps again and stop morphing it in to anything but. Less everything (Props, tarps, electronics, micing, costuming ). Less is more, let things breathe. Finally... have my favorite show for the season win the championship 😁
  13. Actually thee are a bunch interesting to see a full list other corps with female DMs Crossmen, Spirit of Atlanta, Oregon Crusaders, Cadets.....
  14. I can’t wait either but we probably have 5+ moths before we hear what they are planning for the 2020 season 😟
  15. Good point But I doubt DCI would allow or implement woodwinds in a way where they could be marching on the field they would just be staged in the pit so you’re asking the parents to put out money to have you sit on the sideline and not march
  16. I have always wanted to ask you this Mike and this seems the perfect time 🙂 Why is it you want more marching bands featuring any and all instrumentation ? Especially when there are are hundreds if not thousands of this type of unit already? I like brass and percussion only on the field...where else can I go for that if you change dci and dca to look and sound like mb with any instrumentation allowed? An Anything goes div ain’t happening so please refrain from that recommendation 🙂
  17. Yeah but from a potential members standpoint it goes a little like this maybe hey Mom Dad how about giving me 4 -5 grand so I can March with a marching band over the summer. Parents respond- why would we let you do that when you can do that for free at your high school or college
  18. First you have to up the amount of members a corps can field right? By opening up instrumentation to include ww just changes the mix of the members.
  19. What would the financial gain be? Seems like it would be an added expense 😟
  20. lol too funny Fran. Maybe if you toned down your lively shirts you would be harder to find 😁.
  21. It was bass synth supported if memory serves. Outdoors no supporting sound.. probably a much bigger response 😊
  22. I wonder how many people are just like you on this one. I bet there is a shockingly high number of people barely hanging on. I know I am....
  23. Exactly I support that idea ! One thing I definitely dislike a lot about electronics and drum Corps is they act like it’s some kind a major advancement evolution of some sort. there’s been electronic instruments of some sort involved with the marching activity since the 70s
