  1. I am so glad that there is such a positive vibe going on with the Cadets. Perhaps you can send some of it over to Madison's thread. They are taking a beating!
  2. Hopefully one day there will be a Madison thread that will be more positive. I do understand everyones concern, but I feel by some of the posts that some people don't even want them to be successful.
  3. You should be very upset over this. I caught staph. over 10 years ago and was in quarantine in the hospital for 5 days before the doctors found something that would work. I have other issues with Pioneer. I was just glad the administration wasn't around when they stayed at my school.
  4. I can read a lot by job looking at the board members. This should never be allowed. How can this board make a sound decision?
  5. I think their guard was decent. I do think staging hurt them as well as the first part of the show.
  6. I really can see this happening if everything is true about what has been reported regarding the experiences the members faced while on tour. This is a total shame and a black eye on drum corps.
  7. As an educator, there are several things reported that are prime for a lawsuit. DCI could be part of the problem if it new of these problems.
  8. I am not familiar with the problems Pioneer is facing.
  9. I am not aware of the finances within YEA; however, is there a fundraising issues or lack of funds? Has the move to Allentown hurt the corps ability to raise funds? Hopefully, there is someone on board who has in-roads with corporations and is able to write grants.
  10. The members must be really proud tonight with the large jump in score and the reaction from the audience. This show is a testament to what can be accomplished in times of adversity. This would make a great book or movie! The character of the members must be out of this world!
  11. I realize Met Life Stadium has been brought up about the possibility of hosting a regional. Is the area around the stadium (30-mile radius) safe for corps to stay? Are there enough schools in the area that would be willing to host schools?
  12. Les Miserables is one of my favorite shows. I remember being in the stands near Zingali and listening to him throughout the show. The fight scene blew me away!
  13. I remember all of the RVs at a campground in Boulder when championships were held in Denver. It was a great time seeing people from all over the country.
  14. I would be skeptical of using Allentown again for a contest if enough adequate housing can't be found for all of the corps.
