Six Open Class Corps in One Show Tonight

Recommended Posts

In Corps at the Crest San Diego at Oceanside.

I think this is the earliest that's happened for a while.

Four of them are making their season debut (Gold, Impulse, Incognito, Watchmen). Three of them so new that DCP has no Topic Tags for them (Golden Empire, Incognito, Watchmen)--maybe it's time to swap out the tags for Forte and Revolution?

Golden Empire got off to a strong start last week. Gold has been the third-best California O.C. corps the past two years. How will they stack up?

If you're there, let us know how they're doing!

The same six tonight, plus the season debut of Raiders and 7th Regiment at Jackson, and of Racine Scouts at Madison. And tomorrow Spartans premier at Lawrence.

I love that we have new open class corps!

"but, but ... It's dying, right?"

This is the second thread in which you've used those words to mock others' concerns about the overall health of drum corps. I responded with quite a few numbers here--in short, there are 13 fewer DCI corps now than there were ten years ago. Do you call that an improvement?

I may start a separate thread for these like Spandy does for the DCA corps, but for now I'll just update here, since the three SoCal shows in a row made a good excuse for an O.C. thread. So following Riverside and Lawrence, these are the most recent scores for each corps:

1. 61.90 - Spartans (6/29 Lawrence, MA)

2. 60.80 - 7th Regiment (6/29 Lawrence, MA) [+5.50 6/28]

3. 56.10 - Gold (6/29 Riverside, CA) [+0.75 6/28]

3. 56.10 - Vanguard Cadets (6/22 Sacramento, CA) [+0.70 6/21]

5. 55.05 - Blue Devils B (6/22 Sacramento, CA) [+1.45 6/21]

6. 50.70 - Golden Empire (6/29 Riverside, CA) [+1.50 6/28]

7. 48.85 - Impulse (6/29 Riverside, CA) [+0.05 6/28]

8. 47.40 - Raiders (6/28 Jackson, NJ)
9. 46.25 - Colt Cadets (6/28 Madison, WI) [+7.45 6/21]
