  1. I rather enjoyed attending one show where one corps "played the game" by meeting the 35 rule head on. There they were. The same corps with its 11 or so "marching" members on the field. Parked on the sidelines were clearly Family members and even small children with Corps T-shirts snapping their fingers during partial segments of the show. Counted every one of them. Yep 36 "marching members" on the field. Way to stick it to the man...I mean meeting the 35 rule of course. 🙂
  2. Or you can have no shows to host the following years because of lack of corps available to participate because they fold. Then those paying customers won't be attending. Like what happened over the following years. Pick your poison.
  3. There were only a handful of corps at DCA finals I truly wanted to watch . Statesman was one of them . Im glad they stood ground and decided to leave the way they did . Definitely put DCA on a major decline after that .
  4. When I needed help planning Cozy Baker Memorial he was the first to step up to the plate . great man down may he R.I.P.
  5. CAnt get 2500 people to. Live event ? like this is gonna work ? and we know how fair fan favorite voting works right ? This is not a solution it’s a joke .
  6. I think there was a time and a place for DCI to take DCA under their umbrella but that time has far past. DCI is going to have its hands full trying to put the pieces back together in 3-5 years from now and trying to get a NE Regional activity like DCA is going to be so low on the totem pole its not going to be funny.
  7. Agreed .. perhaps the Alumni corps and mini corps will be the thing that keeps Drum corps Alive . Imagine that .
  8. I doubt that DCA as you know it today will survive . it’s membership staff and supporters will find other things to occupy the time the next few years and when the time IS ripe to resume most everyone that was interested will have moved on . I could see some form of a mini corps organization gaining some ground and performing stage shows as rehearsals would be minimal and smaller facilities would be needed for rehearsals . DCA is dead
  9. No School is going to allow a outside unit of any kind come into the school system. I was surprised they allowed voting in our schools. Figured they would have designated a "safe" place but voting went on as usual. There are schools already shutting down for weeks at a time whenever a kid or kids test positive for covid and going to a modified online schedule where they do everything from home and Zoom. Aint no way summer marching bands are coming back for a few years.
  10. https://www.readingbuccaneers.org/2021?fbclid=IwAR1FyQHxz49IfjLvF9MhSbK219N6Y2Qf6yGngNbT3Vb-tNy8hgEu8hyTC9U of all things this showed up on Reddit
  11. I agree. What they are doing by charging knowing there is a strong chance there is not a season is right down criminal. Its irresponsible at best.
  12. Any corps that is charging kids for audition packs and camp fees should be ashamed of themselves . There is no way in heck the 2021 season is going to unfold and they know it .
  13. Exactly this type of thinking is what is going to allow him back in the activity.. The discuting activity he has displayed by raping women should have him in prison for the rest of his life. Much less a lifetime ban from anything marching band or marching arts activity related.
  14. How much you wanna lay down? Someone will hire him ,,rather its a drill writer or as a consultant. He clearly could work under some cloak and dagger company name and skate under the radar probably for a little while.
  15. Exactly. Someone right now is sitting there thinking how they can figure out how to hire a PR firm to handle getting GH on board in some capacity. Rather its writing drill, being a consultant or something. Because you know. GH is good for summer marching bands. Rolls Eyes.
  16. Just think. One of the Summer Marching Bands or Winter Programs is thinking up ways right now how they can hire GH in some capacity as a staff member. Bet me.
  17. No doubt.. The economic impact on DCI and DCA are going to take its toll. I really don't see any survival for DCA. DCI maybe.
  18. YEA , The Cadets and DCI are likley to be without any cash flow or real income for the next two season due to Covid-19. This is going to have a huge economic impact on the activity as a whole. I really don't see GH seeing a dime from anyone regardless of what the courts saying he might be entitled to down the road.
  19. Parade Weekends were always fun for me personally because it was a time for the corps to get together.. let our hair down..relax... unwind ,,have some adult time and fun and let the good time roll without any of the so called stress of practices and scores. Unless of course it was tied in with a performance weekend then we had to tighten up a little bit. I think the last year we were together someone on the board decided to make the bus and the trip a dry one. It was unsettling to several of the members the way it went down. It was also the last year we were together and the corps went inactive after that trip. It was not the straw that broke the camels back for sure but it certainly did not help matters.
  20. I can’t imagine anyone watching that .
  21. It’s unreal what Baltimore paid per parade . I was shocked .
