Hi everyone, welcome to episode 6 of my corps match up series. Today we will be looking at an unusual but very interesting pair of Corps today; Golden Empire and Heat Wave of Florida. Let’s start off with Golden Empire. Golden Empire is a drum corps that was founded in 2013. They have stayed local and have competed in competitions along the west coast. In 2017, Golden Empire had one of their best season ever and finished a their season at the Southern California bellflower championships with a 59.70. In 2018, they are scheduled to compete in many competitions across the United States as they head to the DCI World Championships for the very first time in their history. And now on to Heat Wave of Florida. Heat Wave of Florida was founded in 2014. Like Golden Empire, they have primarly stuck to competing locally. They have competed on the east coast for the most part. 2017 was Heat Wave’s greatest year by far and finished their local season with a high score of 57.40. The interesting part about Heat Wave is that they too are planning on competing at the 2018 DCI World Championships for the first in the Corps history. They are currently under evaluation by DCI. If DCI passes Heat Wave as a strong, stable organization, then Heat Wave will be allowed to compete at the DCI World Championships. It would be the first time a Florida Corps has attended the DCI world championships since Teal Sound last went in 2011. When looking at both Corps, both Corps are very young, both Corps are on opposite sides of the United States, and both Corps plan to make their very first debut at the DCI World Championships in 2018. Now after all that, who do you think will score and finish higher in 2018? Please vote in the poll above and we will find out!
Despite including the defending champion along with some other corps of much interest here, again a West Coast show failed to get its own discussion thread, but maybe a few people who attended but don't want to write full reviews will chime in here with their thoughts. World Class 1. 77.55 Blue Devils 2. 69.85 Madison Scouts 3. 67.05 Blue Knights 4. 66.40 Academy 5. 62.65 Mandarins 6. 60.25 Pacific Crest Open Class 1. 54.45 Gold 2. 52.95 Golden Empire 3. 47.50 Watchmen 4. 46.95 Impulse 5. 39.50 Incognito Scouts pulling away from Knights? Academy looking to overtake Knights? B.D. locking up another championship already?
