  1. What makes you think they are NOT audited on a yearly basis? Can you name a specific corps that is not?
  2. Sorry you feel this way. I personally think the "product" over the past 2 years (and more) has been nothing short of AWESOME. Everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinions.
  3. I have to admit the article, highlighting DCI's reaction to the Arsenal director's comments, is somewhat disturbing...to say the least.
  4. by Drum Corps International Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps is a participant in the DCI SoundSport program and petitioned DCI for evaluation to tour as an Open Class corps for the 2019 season. The evaluation process for Open Class membership is rigorous and designed to ensure that the organization has sufficient financial resources, staff and volunteers, policies, and equipment to tour safely. Strict adherence to all DCI policies and procedures is also a requirement for membership consideration, and it is not uncommon for an organization to require more than one attempt to gain membership. After thorough consideration, Arsenal's Open Class evaluation was put on hold as a result of its representatives publicly disparaging other DCI organizations. The action offered Arsenal an opportunity to correct the issue, but the organization's leadership chose not to discuss options for moving forward. Unfortunately, this left DCI with no recourse but to suspend the corps' application for Open Class evaluation for the 2019 season. Arsenal may participate in DCI's SoundSport program in 2019 and petition again for the Open Class evaluation in 2020.

    2019 Tour Schedule!

    The football games don't have 2 large parking areas closed for drum corps trailers, they don't have access to the stadium closed on each end to allow the corps and equipment to have easy flow in and out, they don't have a market place for souvies and they do have full access to the visitor side and end zone seating. The Massillon August show was something very special, but it has simply been outgrown. At least there is still a June show.

    DCI survey

    Got mine a few days ago. Rather lengthy survey. I made my annual complaint about DCI not having a system in place that allows their "customers" to keep their same seats from year to year. I would like to see DCI put on a report on what they have actually changed based on any of these surveys over the years?

    Putting it all in context

    Isn't the limited LOS access mostly about getting folks into the corps marketplace area?

    Just happened to come across this older thread tonight. 6 years later...yeah, I think we can all agree this all worked out OK for Bloo. A gold, a silver, two bronze and maybe the most creative and entertaining shows during this time period. Yeah, it's worked out OK. And some great additions to the team as well! And in a couple of weeks they will get together to begin work on the 2019 Session. :-)
