  1. I see what you did there George lol
  2. So did I ... but I missed Tom Float!
  3. I heard they're doing a 30th anniversary of the Tommy show and will finish 5th again......
  4. 2 predictions in 1: Cadets and Mandarins both climb!!!!!!
  5. I've heard talk about 2022 proposals. There are loads of suggestions out there that the committees will be exploring. Stuff I liked: Pistol start Pistol stop at about 10 minutes and judging stops ... then all heck can break loose for another 90 seconds. 1 throwback piece of music I'm down with the traditional uniform
  6. Great post. Most of this will be covered in the upcoming announcements. Specifically, question 2 .... SO I will not comment. 1. All Campaign Donation Contributions to The Cadets go directly to "The Cadets". And ONLY "The Cadets". 2. Drum corps budgets can not operate on member fees alone. That's impossible for even the tiniest corps. Donations, fees, contracted sponsorships, performance fees, inventory sales and additional revenue streams all contribute to the yearly budget. Every organization involved in DCI deals with the struggle of balancing the costs of touring and operations against budgetary needs. No one is kicking cans at The Cadets. At every turn, I've experienced nothing but open communication and a clear plan for how to meet those needs. 3. Cleaning houses always involves new blood taking up the torch. New Admins, New Directorship, stronger planning, better organization, fiscal responsibility and clear communication when necessary and needed. Your questions are valid and require answers. Those are coming, but not from me.
  7. Soooooo, recruiting at USBands shows isn't working out? Why aren't you PERFORMING at USBands shows? Or whatever circuit you're attending.... Isn't it an advantage for your corps to have the additional performance experience? Isn't it an advantage to show what you can actually do in front of the potential members you're looking to recruit? The show in Bethel, CT yesterday for USBands had a University band in exhibition just before awards. That to me, is extremely smart recruiting. Add in a table with literature and some souvies and you're good to go. That's the grass roots method. It's the harder path, but it is VERY effective!
  8. I see you are puzzled by my previous response..... they were replying to this! Hope it helps.... NO VENUE CHANGE, EXTENDED CONTRACT, NO OPEN ROOF. as predicted.....
  9. Difficult fact of DCI..... earlier gate times means less rehearsal time.
  10. Bridge arches and sound equipment. No injuries...... truck replaced. Nothing to see here.....
  11. Zero rain here at the show site. Blue skies all around
  12. Yeah based on what i heard..... .2 to .4 behind Coats in drums tonight Much better brass show today over Pittsburgh.
  13. Do better and the closer were really strong for Cadets. Hope they fix the first half soon
