  1. lets see how many after school programs actually run.
  2. considering data is getting ####ed with for political purposes, i can't tell what is and isn't real.
  3. honestly even kids that have parents that follow the rules still have challenges. Sadie hates her mask. shes extremely friendly...a hugger. this is driving her nuts
  4. teachers however are more prone to get sick...one kid exposed, a whole class is now out of action for 14 days...maybe more. i see both sides of the argument..there is no win win
  5. WV cancelled all band rehearsals til mid August. Nj delayed the start of fall sports til October
  6. oh those who show it to me are not on his side any longer. some things in 16 happened that took long time fans, supporters and volunteers out of his fan club
  7. 1999....one of my favorite DCi seasons ever. my first show was in Elkton MDon 6/26..Cadets way over Crossmen, then Crown, Magic, Bloo, Spirit..and OMG Spirit's bottom bass....when he hit the Thurston lick you felt it. Cadets seemed so far ahead of everyone else. 4 days later in Allentown, gap between Cadets and Crossmen shrank to 5 points, Crown then Magic 5+ behind them and ahead of Boston...hmmm...Boston had something. it was early but hmmm 10 days later at Hershey, cadets still way up, Crown right behind Bones, Boston under them, pulling away from Bloo, Spirit and Magic, plus Tarheel Sun. Kiwanis and Les Etolies. Boston really growing as a corps...Crossmens throwback moment to 92 not going anywhere...truly falling in love with Crowns jekyll and Hyde 6 days later head down to Cumberland MD and see Gmen over the crew that had been under Cadets and while I liked 98 Gmen's show better, 99 had talent you couldnt deny. a few weeks of DCA stuff then Allentown...night 1: SCV wow! lit the place up!! the show was amazing and yet you could tell some cleaning needed to happen.Gmen and BK fighting for position and I loved BK 99.....so aggressive! and Madison. JCS. As my friend Matt Bealer said after the opener "JESUS!!!" they lit the place up. dirty but fun. Crossmen improved but flat, then Boston....you could feel some momentum there...same with Colts beating Bloo...Kiwanis, Troop and Les Toiles finishing the night out. Night 2 everyone buzzing after SCV..well hi BD!!!! this is gonna be fun! Cadets right on their tail, and Cavies behind them with a show that keeps growing on me 21 years later, then Phantom...not sure what to make of it yet...big drop back to Crown and then another drop to Magic, Spirit, Southwind ( fun show!!) Pioneer than Tarheel. Oh man Mad city will be fun: quarters: BD, SCV, Cadets, cavies, BK, Gmen, Madison...well ####. whichever makes tv look out!. then Phantom, Crossmen...Boston...in? like maybe finally???...Crown then Colts who are pulling away from Bloo, then Magic...Spirit and Southwind tie. Pio making semis, plus a lot of good stuff ealier semis..looks like BD is pulling away...a full point over SCV. Cavies put a spread on cadets, then Gmen and Bk, then Madison...no tv gang sorry...Crossmen, then yes!! Boston is finally in!!!!! Crown solid then Colts leave no doubt they are in as well...Bloo, Magic, Southwind pulls away from Spirit, then Pio. finals night...what energy. those of us that did the DCA show in the afternoon are refreshed and ready and no let down. Colts a great way to start the night, then Crown...Boston tops Crossmen foreshadowing their late season surge the following year..Phantom is Phantom and JCS for Madison hits all the right notes and lights the place up to jump BK! Gmen, cadets and Cavies hold steady with cavies getting drums then...the tie!!! SCV and BD tie! absolute bedlam and both victory runs an absolute blast as well. i have worn out 2 cd sets, an i am talking all 3 discs. got it on dvdas soon as i could as the vhs was worn out. some absolute great shows, and some great last minute judging the show of the day
  8. a great job using the "sweet spot" to catch front to back
  9. honestly unless someone shows me his rants or they appear here, i don't think about it. after 2+ years when i drive by his neighborhood i dont even think about it now. But i guarantee you Lehigh County is watching.
  10. i don't think the regional model solves that. we get the kids from the suburbs now. inner city schools which are more minority have barely functioning music programs because thats the first thing cut. going regional is not going to suddenly lead to CYO or churches or PAL or AL or VFW creating corps/
  11. and still couldnt help Oakland Crusaders get in in 77
  12. i saw both. no 87 didnt score what 85 did....but it wasn't as painful to watch
