  1. Well, Well, Well, it's been years since I have posted on DCP, but when my phone blew up with everyone calling me about this post I felt compelled to respond. The conversations about an evaluation show started in the fall and was debated at the winter meeting. This is not a new concept, back in the 70's and 80's the DCA started it's season in Mount Carmel and later Danvile PA with exhibition shows and I can tell you I remember finishing the EXIT (yes I'm old) an hour before we went on the field and that was with 50 pages of drill. In the 90's we had evaluation shows, the DCA brought in all of the judges and the judges meeting was at a nearby hotel for all of the corps and BTW it was the second weekend of June. Why did it come up for this year? We have been having problems getting corps to sign up for he show because they did not believe they would be ready with a complete show. Mr. Adcock was on the money with his explanation why this is happening, between, winter percussion programs, guard season going until the first weekend in May, band trips, proms, graduations just to name a few issues that come up and lets not forget they are learning 120 sets with choreography. Many of the corps don't have a full corps until the beginning of June so we can understand the problem. With the costs of putting a corps on the field, I hope you can appreciate why they want to put their best foot forward and not be judged with an incomplete show. To the person talking about the lack of interest in the show, tickets sales are up from last year. It is our hope to put together a fan favorite phone app so the fans can be the judge. The truth is the Wildwood weekend has always been a great weekend to get the show on the field but more important it is to give our members a chance to get to the jersey shore before a long season. We hope next year that more corps will take advantage of this opportunity to get their corps in front of a crowd. Peace Out!!
  2. Ticket sales are going very well, but we still have good tickets available, Don’t believe the rumors that we are sold out right now and miss out on the best show of the season so far.

  5. Thanks for all of the great comments on the show it's going to be a great season, the Cabs are looking forwards to Bridgeport next weekend. I have been with the corps for a long time and we have always had hard working corps. But the 2014 Cabs Corps are SICK in a great way. They never let up, they are so into the show and perfecting their craft. We welcome all to any of our rehearsals they are a treat to watch. FYI Sopranobugle, The reason no penalties were given to the corps who was warming up during the competition part of the show was because the corps warming up were exhibition corps. Hope to see you all July 12th for the 50th Annual Drum Corps Grand Prix, 9 competing corps, and 4 exhibitions, go to www.Crowntickets.com for tickets

  8. Jeff to answer your question, we would have like to have more corps in the show but they were not going to be ready. None the less the corps that are in the show have all had great winters and will be putting on one hell of a show. Lets not forget Wildwood is not just about the contest, their is the show before the show. Friday night is always great for the fans, the corps practices are always open to the public. You don't get that kind of access during the season, hope to see you there.
