  1. I have participated and have been following drum corps for a very long time. I have adopted the changes over the years with open arms. I love most of those changes and have no wish to turning the clock back. I start with these points because I know some punk will accuse me of being old school or for not understanding modern drum corps. Rest assured I understand it quite well and I am very familiar with the judging sheets and scoring process. Having said that, it is a shame what the judges are doing to BC this year. I have watched closely all season and have seen the bias that is so obvio
  2. Hello, does anyone out there know how I can purchase individual used marching snares that were previously marched by a DCI corps or where I might find them? Thank you for your help.
  3. I'm in a complicated situation but I will try my best to explain it. I am a woodwind player primarily but I am trying to learn mellophone for the purpose of marching in dci one day. My dream corps has been bluecoats since '08 but me being 18 years old and having no dci experience and being pretty bad on mello as of now, that dream seems to be fading (especially now that they're defending champs). My first question would be what kind of skill level on my horn should I be at before going to any audition camps? I don't want to just show up and waste everyone's time and make a fool of myse
  4. The 2017 drum corps season has started, and so has my show review season! I reviewed two shows for the June edition of Drum Corps World. The first was the DCI Tour Premiere cinecast on Thursday, June 22. The focus of that review was on the technical aspects of the cinecast. A separate review of the performances is also in the June issue. The second review was of the Innovations in Brass: Massillon show on Saturday, June 24. That review was a performance review of all 5 World Class and 2 SoundSport corps which performed that night. http://www.gaminnet.info/?p=3054
  5. This past Saturday (June 17), I went to the Sacramento Mandarins' Family Day show. I was very excited by what I saw. Over the past few years, Mandarins have continued to do better and better each year. I fee like they made a sizable jump in size and quality about 3-4 years ago and the Mandarins of today are on another level than a few years ago. Since joining Division 1/World Class, I feel they are often overlooked (Their 2013 show was OUTSTANDING). I think this will be the year they make a jump in scores and placements. I think they will continue to turn some heads. I believe they w
  6. Crossmen has one 15 passenger van that is in need of a driver for most of the summer. This is a driving volunteer position. Sleep all day, drive all night. Your passengers will be our volunteers. No CDL required. If you are interested in driving for a drum corp this summer, please reach out to Chelsea at chelsea.stemet@crossmen.org. Thank you!

  8. I thought I'd start a new thread with the show's current title for the discussion of the actual show. The TV Listings for October 5th are available and this is what it says as a description of the first episode: (Source: Zap2It.com) Close Clash of the CorpsEpisode: Marchin Music's Major League Premiere Special PREMIERE NEW S01, E01 The Blue Devils and The Cadets struggle with auditions, training, and anxiety, but still find time to party.
  9. Maybe some of you have interest in sharing reflections, thoughts, or reactions to viewing the DCI Finals performances on your recently acquired DVD or BluRays? I attended shows at the Tour Premier in Indy, San Antonio, and all three days during Finals week. After a viewing of the shows on video (both multi-cam and high cam), here are a few of my early thoughts. Obviously, this is FWIW: The top five shows are all really wonderful and different. Five different corps’ personalities. Except for The Academy, shows six and below blur together a bit. I am disappointed, a little sad, and then als
  10. With the emergence of music based programs versus themed programs (ex. The Cadets 2013) we should start a forum with ideas that would be good music programs. My submission is The Rite of Spring both movements. Also post which corps you think would be best for the music I think crown would make a lit program based on Rite of Spring.
  11. Is anyone keeping track of how many groups have gone through Sound Sport and emerged into a DCI Open Class Corps?
  12. Looks like there will be an announcement soon! Mods: If there is already an official 2016 thread, sorry could not find one. Delete this topic or merge.
  13. Any Chance of having a Forum for DCI Sound Sport, Drumline Battles and All Age DCI Corps? I ask because it appears Sound Sport is working as an incubator for developing new Junior and All Age Drum Corps. There is also some Alumni Corps Activity in the Sound Sport Arena as well. Thanks.
  14. I have 2 tickets for FINALS - Section 643 Row 20 Seats 1 & 2 on an aisle. Great seats for drill watchers! $79 each. They're on Stub Hub right now, but let me know if interested and I can sell outside of Stub Hub. Thanks!
  15. (I couldn't find a very good place to put this) I was watching a video of SCV practicing marching one day (I can't find the video again. I think it was 2014), and before they stepped off, they raised their horns up, which caused a clicking noise (akin to someone wearing a ring or something and clacking it around on the instrument. That's the best way I could describe it). The contras did it too, but it sounded like a bunch of real-life Transformers (it was super cool!). How do they do this?
  16. Keep in mind, I believe that only once the winner of this show has won the championship (going back to 2011 when all the corps participated the same day) That corps was the undefeated monster that was the 2014 Blue Devils. That being said, who do you think wins this show and do you think whoever wins this show will win it all? My prediction Blue Devils will win this show and Carolina Crown will go on to win in the finals. I could see Bluecoats also winning this show, but for some reason my mind has been made up about Crown winning this year since I saw the show at Muncie.
  17. Do any drum corps late in this season have any Bari euph holes? I'm sure they wouldn't advertise it but I just figured I'd ask and find out.
  18. There was a time when the troopers were in the top 3, a time when Crown was no body, a time when the Cavies dominated, Phantom rocked faces off, My question is "Who do you think is the next world class corps that no body is talking about now, that we could possibly be talking about as a title contender in 3 to 5 years?"
  19. New site has been collecting and posting DCI 2016 videos as they come out. They just posted full performance videos of Blue Devils, Crossmen, and The Cadets today. http://www.lothype.com/dci-2016-most-recently-added/ Blue Devils Full Show: http://www.lothype.com/blue-devils-2016-family-day-dreams-made-full-show/ Cadets Full Show: http://www.lothype.com/cadets-2016-awakening-full-show-high-cam/ Crossmen Full Show: http://www.lothype.com/crossmen-2016-continuum-full-show/ Ill update the thread as new videos come out, or just follow their facebook and/or twitter. www.facebook.com/lothype
  20. I got this in my inbox today due to my use of their services. No doubt this is an attempt to do some major PR control. I'm not sure what specifically made them want to send this out though. Maybe issues related to DCI, WGI, and MFA? "Dear #### I would like to take this opportunity to re-introduce Tresóna: who we are, what we do, and why we do it.

  21. We're happy to announce that the home video release for our award winning documentary, "Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood" is finally happening. Preorders for the DVD and the Ultimate Blu-ray Edition + DVD Combo Pack are now available on our website. The discs will ship in June, and these two versions of the film will be available for sale at the Madison Scouts souvie stand during the 2016 DCI tour. We've been blown away by the reactions to our film from both drum corps fans and from those who had previous never heard of the activity. Somehow we made the film work for both camps whi
