  1. Bluecoats announce Hall of Fame, Bloo Ribbon and Unsung Hero recipients for 2019 https://bluecoats.com/news/2019/5/10/hall-of-fame-bloo-ribbon-unsung-hero
  2. WOW...kind of sad that you could quit your corps...and nobody would notice.
  3. The Bluecoats performing with their friends Thank You Scientist. This is soooo cool. Bloo does know how to have fun 🙂
  4. Good luck to Bluecoats Indoor at WGI next week. Amazing how good this group is in only their 2nd year. Designers have given them an innovative and entertaining show...just as you would expect them to.
  5. What makes you think they are NOT audited on a yearly basis? Can you name a specific corps that is not?
  6. 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.
  7. I have to admit the article, highlighting DCI's reaction to the Arsenal director's comments, is somewhat disturbing...to say the least.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Blue Devils FINALLY come back to compete in OHIO...Centerville 🙂
  11. What about Mason? CT will be there...and BLOO!
  12. I'm thinking maybe a DUET...with a female singer and corps from OH....IO
