  1. Us NYer's always hooped Squires would do it after Purple Lancers.
  2. Remember when the Geneseo Knights were beating almost everyone in early season and then didn't make top 12 while the other corps. that they beat, did?
  3. Open class isn't regional as they all travel around the country to compete. Back in the 1970's (for my era) corps stayed in their area. We were from the Buffalo. NY area so we did Upstate NY, Western PA, Ontario and sometimes Cleveland area. That was our region.
  4. Was Vengeance a Canadian corps? I thought they were a corps from NY. The name was changed from the Niagara Frontiersmen. Not sure why the change though.
  5. This post came back 11 years later? WOW Imagine if Charioteers had continuity and started in June like others!
  6. I'll probably have some mad people here BUT.......I have always (most of the time) sided with DCI corps but I am going to say something that may not be happy to most. If DCI wants the support of fans and alumni who can donate money, they (corps) need to listen to what the fans want! They need to NOT go against all those fans from the decades past. I don't think we/they want the tic system in judging and a Color Pre, but music that they can hum as they leave the stadiums. Just throwing it out there!
  7. If DCI put out recordings for us to hear from the 1970's and 1980's? What a grand gesture that would be!!!! Just saying!
  8. I started marching in 1971 and the last show I saw was at Batavia, NY, late in the season (maybe end of August or start of September). I remember Blue Rock was suppose to be there but pulled out and replaced by The Mark Twain Cadets. I believe Boston Crusaders, 27th Lancers and possibly Kilties were there too. I do remember two of our members left our corps to join St. Joe's but I am not certain. Back then you had to have a release.
  9. If DCA does what they always do (two or three years after DCI) the DCA 2022 season will be canceled! Now I say that as a joke and I am sure Allen and the corps director will b e smart real soon and cancel the 2020 season as DCI and the IOC have done. Lets look at what schools may do real soon in not allowing extra groups to enter their schools in the winter or summer. It's going to happen.
  10. Schools may not allow corps to stay in their schools anymore! How many corps use a school for their weekend camps now?
  11. Not sure if this was brought up.....Schools may decide to keep their buildings shut down over summer to clean and sanitize. Also, This may go on into May and , I hope not, June. If it does happen how can corps spend money on a shorter season with less rehearsal time? I realize no one wants to shut down but I think DCI and DCA will have to make a decision soon. I'm a teacher and we probably won't see students in the classroom till August when the new school year begins. If the schools start turning down corps to stay in their schools while on tour, where will they sleep and practice?
  12. Is it DCI or is it the top 12 plus corps who brought the changes and voted for these changes decade after decade. It's not the DCI executive director but the corps reps who bring forth the changes and then the directors who make up the board who vote.
  13. I seem to remember Beverly Cardinals, Mello Dears, Buckeyes, Marion Cadets and Royal Coachmen. Maybe others. Anyone remember or have scores?
