  1. I also got 2 day shipping although I only paid for standard ground. The day my annual DCI video arrives the house shakes and the 6 foot by 10 foot projection image is sharp as a tack. Thanks to DCI and Tom Blair for doing the due diligence needed to put this wonderful video out. As a 71 year old contrabass player ( still active alumni ) the cover photo is hard to take - I know yes we can but the parts for the players I have seen do not take advantage of the instruments advantages.
  2. With all due respect you are an oldie but your lineage is more to band than Drum & Bugle corps. IMHO too much is made of DCI designers than to performers. Good luck to them all in finding the pot of gold. I applaud Garfield to his apparent knock on Hopkins - to DCI this will be my last purchase of finals ( if there is one ) and wish all of you success in the future !
  3. are you a paid DCI online bot? I like you made a disparage to yeaH but this now disconnects Drum & Bugle Corps from us oldies - good luck to competing with Ohio State and Texas A & M
  4. Wow - se championship scores and placements almost exactly!
  5. Good to see your rankings ! In the past by the end of the season you always have the " scoring algorithm " and predictions " on the money " !
  6. I think 2000 was an all time great show 2005 was something to behold 1984 was just stunning 1987 awesome but being an old guy to answer some questions the backward soloist in Maria in the 60,s was incredible
  7. are you a true drumcorpsfan or just a drumcorpsplanet hack your alumni needs you Ray Priester told me in spite of your posts you are ok
  8. i brought it up The Kingsmen Cavies 888 Royalaires SCV Madison Bridgemen with an original DCI performance would be wonderful Be prepared for the usual posters to say NO NO NO) and blame it on Tresona
  9. In reply to who do you watch first- i just play the DVD's - these shows are wonderful and i tip my cap to these wonderful players - you all did yourselves proud = there is something to like in every performance
  10. Finished disc one today I am very happy with the BluRay ( I project it on a 6 x 9 screen and it is really good ) sound and video quality is fine by me
  11. The Product is very good. Never thought I would love Blue Devils over CC so much ( stop this dark stuff please - you are wasting wonderful musicians )
  12. oops - i forgot to put in " alumni performances " - but it would be nice to put in an original year to fill out the disc with each corps
  13. Would it be too much to ask for a BluRay of the StepOver Bottle Dance or some of the other memorable performances at finals before we who are at " Danny Boy " state who would buy such a product? ThankYOU
