  1. How the heck has nobody said George Hopkins yet? 😝
  2. Nice to see the town I was born in get a drum corps!
  3. I'm riffing on the "January lasted forever this year" meme.
  4. There was a show at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, LA that I marched at back in 2001. As of today, it's 102,000 per Wikipedia. Not sure what the capacity was back then though. Also, Cotton Bowl hosted the '91 finals and clocks in at 92,000. Nebraska's stadium hosted a mid-season event once or twice in the mid-2000's, the new Meadowlands routinely hosts late-season shows, and Camp Randall in Madison has hosted finals numerous times.
  5. I think we have 6 more months of January to get through first. 😛
  6. Last few years, it hasn't come out until springtime, right?
  7. I'm looking to sell my VHS sets of the 1986, 1987, 1991, 1993 and 2002 DCI finals. I'm asking $10 for each set. If you're interested, please PM me.
  8. The school district there has had some concerns about the state of the stadium for this one (the track in particular has been decaying for the last few years) and has been trying to get financing for a new stadium elsewhere in town. I really hope this is just a short hiatus, because that was one of my all-time favorite shows to march at for the sheer hospitality of the local organizers alone. That said, if they do actually hold this year's show in Syracuse instead of Niagara Falls, I'm hopeful they'll use Bragman Stadium in Cicero, which is a really good venue in its own right.
  9. Per DCI's Twitter feed, the schedule will be released at 11 am CST today.
  10. But those involve moving finals back from Labor Day weekend. I'd agree that there definitely would be more options if they take that step, but if they stay married to that particular weekend, then the amount of top-tier venues greatly diminishes.
  11. So what's basically coming out of all of this discussion is that no college venue is going to be feasible due to football schedules, unless DCA gives up Labor Day weekend. Gotta say that leaves very few options...
