  1. All the shows from the mid to late 80s were my favs (doesn't it seem that way for every generation, where the shows they watch are their favs?) I do wish I knew more about drum corps while in high school...or knew how to audition before I did. I do remember watching DCI Finals videos during our band camp and it was amazing to see these awesome corps performing on video. My first actual LIVE performance was '90 Allentown. I was truly blown away at the raw-in-your-face wall of sound. I had a friend who was in his 2nd year with the Cavaliers, so all of us were on edge waiting for scores
  2. There was a bus driver who's name was Skeletor! I remember the guard had gotten a 'new' bus (with air conditioning) and we had missed a turn to a practice site, so the drivers were trying to figure out how we were going to turn around and get where we needed to be. Well, Skeletor (the driver) decided to do a 3-point turn in the street....without going up a block and making the 3-point turn, and as he backed up, backed up into a huge berm which punctured the air conditioning pump.....that totally sucked! anyway, I had gotten my nickname at my first audition camp from the vet while sitting
  3. Hey Strangers! Just came in to see what's going on. Gearing up for a 21-day Caribbean cruise in February and can't wait.

    Can't wait for DCI MN again this summer, as it will probably be the only show I'll have the chance to go to!

  4. Since there usually isn't much discussion from any corps, it was great to see and hear what is going on from The Cavaliers. Mr. Lugo is keeping the Donors, and Alumni well connected with the young men who are looking at marching with the Cavaliers. It will be a long time before we know how everyone is against each other since the first real match up isn't until Jul 20th and 21st.
  5. It would be interesting to see how much the Theater events cost DCI. Sure, we would all love to see DCI everyday, however, what about in BOA in November, then in April, show WGI. I'm sure both of these events wouldn't bring the crowds that DCI would bring, but may be able to keep some sort of 'fix' for those of us wanting something. We are able to see bands in Parades for Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, as well as Rose Bowl Parade, what about other events like Cherry Blossom Parade, or St. Patrick's Day? (yeah, one could hope) Wonder how much 'new' audience DCI will gain with The Rocks Docu-seri
  6. Matt, great review of the many stadiums around the country. I realize it's not all-inclusive yet, and it's a great work in progress. As a few others have suggested, the DCI Minnesota show at TCF Stadium is a great venue (despite it's opening debut with the severe weather) Also surprised that Broken Arrow's stadium hasn't been listed/reviewed yet as that is a great mid-western drum corps show! Even though there hasn't been a DCI Show at this stadium in a long time, would be good to read something on 1991s DCI World Champion show site at the Cotton Bowl. A few other places for food fo
  7. Glad you liked it. Not too bad for only getting a horn and music on Wednesday and playing on Saturday after a 20yr absence! LOL (although, I just didn't like the arrangement of Star-Spangled Banner. I agree with most to just keep it simple....)
  8. John, how'd you go about adding the module? Another forum where I'm an Admin just switched from Fusion software to IPB, and I spent the past few days trying to figure out how these modules work. (hard when I've been gone from IPB for so long) I know this forum isn't monitored as often, but any incite would be great!
  9. So many people on DCP in MN, this would have been a great venue for a Meet-Up. Unfortunately for me, I won't be there! I would have worn my DCP shirt to be recognized!!!
  10. I'm so bummed I can't be there for this show this year. Had a blast last year (despite the downpour) and was looking forwardto this year, but work got in the way. Spent Tuesday out in Chanhassen watching The Cadets rehearse, I really liked what they were doing. Would have been fun to see the other corps rehearse today, but since I work out of Miami, I had to leave this morning. I do wish for great weather and best of luck to ALL participating corps!
  11. ok, I'm totally upset about this. (Thanks corpsband for the info. I think with a big show like tonight with many of the top corps together, they should have had a BIGGER announcement prior to tonight (IMO) explaining to those that aren't in the know. I'm also highly disappointed that DCI has decided NOT to keep up with their iPhone APP. Wasn't until a couple weeks ago I find out I have to go to their mobile site, and now they want a fan favorite vote? Guess I'm just too old fashion. Maybe we should just call the old 800 # or wait for Drum Corps World to be published 3weeks after a show lik
  12. Hey Everybody! Hope you are doing well. Now that we are in the new month of the new year, a close and dear friend of mine (who also happens to be my Sponsor back in '91-'92) has put together a collection of photos into a fantastic 2011 calendar featuring The Cavaliers. He is excited to offer all Drum Corps fan's (especially those fans of The Cavaliers) something that will help them keep up with The Cavaliers during 2011. He produced a wall calendar that he is selling to help raise funds for membership dues. This calendar will include tour dates and feature over 60 of his photos he has taken o
