  1. Well as much as we are dismayed with the happenings at Pioneer, none of the corps are immune from potential skeletons coming out of the closet. Even the most successful and up and coming corps, who have strong boards, have hired staff with some shady and questionable history. They are some of the most well loved designers, caption heads, and instructors. So nobody's corps is perfect and I hope we think about that when making such comments about other corps. Any corps at this point is suseptible at any time to be the next news story. This is just the start and I hope all corps think proactively instead of being reactive.

    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    If that's true, then that is not good for DCI at all. Dan A. has to be having sleepless nights. I'm not going to point fingers or make assumptions as I don't know the whole story, but DCI really needs to shore up that anyone who submits a concern needs to have their concern followed up on. If they are passing it back to the corps to do the follow up and nothing is happening, then swift action needs to happen to that organization. Perhaps a follow up from DCI to the member whether their concern was addressed would be appropriate. If it is DCI's job to investigate and handle the concern, then the activity is in a ton of trouble. It goes back to education and working with youth. Schools would be jumping on this immediately, putting the alleged offender on leave, investigating and if necessary involving law enforcement and then making a decision. I'm really at that point of not caring if you're a someone who has a name/reputation in the activity, an admin, a Hall of Famer, or judge, you are not above the law or protection. It is not being old-school. It is not about tradition. It is about doing the right thing. Again, I don't want to make assumptions, but I'm just so sad for what the youth (and staff) and what some are going through.

    Love it! Before you know it, you'll be having the bando moms getting involved because their little Johnny or Suzy is traumatized. Much more bigger issues to worry about in our activity right now.

    The Cadets 2019

    I have a ton of shirts and memorabilia I've collected over the years as well. I made a suggestion a long time ago that DCI should build into championship week a swap meet where fans can sell their old drum corps items. Who wouldn't want to buy an old vintage t-shirt? Knowing me, I'd probably buy more than what I sell.

    Why are people harping about others making comments on what they notice and accusing them of trolling or stirring the pot. Maybe this thread should be closed down if everyone is going to be so sensitive. I just see it as some people trying to share their two cents. This thread is already proving from real staff member posts that perhaps we as a forum are crossing the line. I think we can be civil about it, but when we jump on each other, it's no better than the speculations that are being made in this thread about staffing next year.
  8. Dan A. mentioned how DCI had record attendance numbers for so many years in row now at championships. He was hoping for another record breaking year, but if not he was still excited about the strength of attendance the last several years. I believe 23,000 something was the record they were trying to beat for Indy attendance. I was expecting to hear some announcement but none was ever made. So perhaps the streak was broken this year.

    A: Competitive Inertia

    Someone needs to make a Competitive Inertia t-shirt. And on the back it should read "Is it just consistency or conspiracy?"

    It was the VIP entrance. It was nice, a little less of a walk around the side of the stadium, no wait and the stadium staff were super nice. One day we had open bottles of water. The other day we had coffee from our hotel.
  11. Technically - possibly if we're talking numbers. My favorite/greatest year ever? Bar far no.

    Genesis 2018

    I guess you can throw Music City into that same boat as well. They never medaled in Open Class. Wait...didn't they just have one of the most fan favorite shows this year? I guess it doesn't matter now does it. I'm glad we have another World Class corps. As long as they stay stable, take care of the kids, and are fiscally responsible then it's all good to me.

    About $1 Million of it probably comes from concession sales! One water and some nachos was nearly $10 and those lines were long. We got wiser and brought in our own snacks and drinks the rest of the nights. They didn't even check bags or blink an eye from our open containers of water we were bringing in.
  14. I agree here. Sitting in the 400 section between the 40s, the most amped up groups who were receiving the most complaints (Colts and BD), sounded the best inside Lucas Oil Stadium. Those shows were designed well for the indoor setting but I can see how that upset people throughout the various tour stops.
  15. Bk didn’t finish last in guard! You go guys!
