  1. News from Nashville!

  3. Plain and simple ... I want to be a Cadet again. Thank you 2018 Cadets for bring that feeling back.
  4. I was wondering the same question ... did DCI announce any Blu-ray or CDs at Championships? Guess not.
  5. Are prelim times still based on scores from San Antonio, Atlanta and Allentown?

  7. How long was the video available to watch? Was the link completely removed after scores were announced? I watched a little of the show ... fast forwarded and reversed during the actual broadcast. Would be nice if they gave us 24 hours to watch the complete broadcast ... :-)
  8. First of all, I’m a long time Cadet Fan and a Cadet Financial Supporter … That said, when I saw The Bluecoats in the theater back in June, I personally hoped they would take the Gold. A show like theirs is the reason why I became a Drum Corps Fan … so much there to enjoy … so much excitement. You have to be kidding yourself if you think it didn’t sting. The Cadet members have been told all season long they were Silver, but on the final night of the season they weren’t. I just went back and watch the announcement of their score, and you can see the guard members’ faces. There were few cheers for the Cadets … all you hear Bloooo! And to be honest, I’m not surprised. If you have been around the activity for a long time, you know Cadets have leaped over other Corps during Championships … and vice versa … It’s just part of the game … the nature of competition. There are many accomplishments for The 2014 Cadets … 1. They broke the even year drought of not making the top 3 ... last time they made the top 3 during an even year was 2002. 2. They went undefeated against Carolina Crown … last time that happened was 2007. 3. The Cadets guard moved from being the Corps’ biggest weakness to one of the Corps’ strengths. So, Congratulation to the 2014 Cadets! Be proud!
  9. Ok, so there is an issue for me ... find my confirmation email. Thanks for checking!
  10. I expected no streaming ... but after I made the purchase back in July, I signed out and signed back in to test ... make sure it worked and it did last month.
  11. Has anyone else tried to sign in to the website? I've tried three times with no luck. Just testing to make sure I could get into the system. I purchased the broadcast on July 29th and I am a Fan Network member. Thanks for the responses!
  12. Thanks to those who emailed me ... do appreciate your interest. First email has first chance for the tickets ... message has been sent. If that falls through, I will add another posting here. Thanks!
  13. It's not working out for me this year ... so I need to sell my tickets ... Set of 2 ... Prelim, Semi and Finals. Section 239 ...I'll add row and seats later. If you are interesting, please email me at $270.00 each set which is what I paid. Thanks!

  15. Glad other folks do this as well ... All Corps get $10 from me no matter if I want an item or not ... and I never ask for change ... For all the collector types out there like me, buy a lapel pin from each corps ... always around $5 ... and start your own personal DCI collection. Be sure to stop by and visit with Forrest at his Drum Corps Miniatures booth.
  16. At the Theater on a Friday night will not happen ... because of busy movie weekends ... But i would pay $50.00 Finals at home? $100.00, maybe more ... We've attended all the Championships since the movie to Indy/Bloomington. Honestly, I don't see us going back next year ... It's a taking time off issue for me ... with work reducing how much PTO we can carry into the next year and aging parents, I need to use my time off wisely.

  19. quote name='Granny Smith' timestamp='1343925899' post='3192097'] Yep. You heard it here first. I love what George has put on the field again this year. I really like Christmas and I really think that the Cadets are really wonderful and I like how they are all working so hard. If you disagree you can just stick it. Granny = Angelic
  20. I know this came up a few weeks back ... and I agree ... it's going to be tough for me to make it to Indy every year moving forward with aging parents, work, etc. Maybe a perk for "Friends of DCI?" I would be more than happy the shell out top dollar to watch finals at home.
  21. Completely agree with your comment about the excitement level ... I will say I enjoy seeing the Corps in a open stadium ... it's something about the lighting that is totally different than in a dome. Flag colors pop ... Corps uniforms shine ... etc.
