Gold Showcase at the Ranch

Longhorn Stadium at Rancho Buena Vista High School

1601 Longhorn Dr.

Vista, CA 92081

Saturday, July 12 -- 6:30 p.m. PDT

Show Site

According to the site this is the performance schedule:

6:37 p.m. -- Golden Empire

6:52 p.m. -- Watchmen

7:07 p.m. -- Incognito

7:22 p.m. -- SoCal Dream

7:37 p.m. -- Blue Devils C

8:07 p.m. -- City Sound

8:22 p.m. -- Impulse

8:37 p.m. -- Blue Devils B

8:52 p.m. -- Vanguard Cadets

9:07 p.m. -- Gold

Is SoCal Dream (a DCA corps) really performing? In a normal season they would, but earlier this year, I thought they said they were taking a year off, and I see nothing about tonight's show on SCD's website or Facebook page. And yet, Gold today posted to their Facebook page that "all ten Open Class corps in California would be appearing", even though there are only nine. Very confusing. From the Pressbox does not show SoCal Dream appearing, but times there look suspect, since neither the first nor last corps' time is changed: instead FtP shows Blue Devils C performing in the middle of two intermissions.

NWS says low 70s, partly cloudy, light breeze.

For six of the nine corps, this is the penultimate show; their seasons conclude tomorrow.

The new corps are on first, despite their accomplishments so far; I hope that doesn't hurt their scores.

I'll try a prediction:

66.10 Blue Devils B

66.05 Vanguard Cadets

65.10 Gold

58.90 Impulse

58.85 Golden Empire

48.30 City Sound

46.50 Incognito

44.80 Watchmen

44.35 Blue Devils C

We shall see! The show doesn't start for another two hours.

Right onnnn right on right on right on, my Alma Mater! I literally lived 2 minutes away from there! Man, too bad I moved to Texas! I've been pushing for a show there ever since I found out what drum corps was. I hope attendence is good. Can someone here cover the show?? Or at least write a review?

Nice improvement, Watchmen. Six points above your previous show. (Gold did the same thing, but they're much more experienced.)

And here is the recap.

BDB took General Effect, Guard, Brass, and Percussion.

SCVC took Visual Proficiency, Visual Analysis, and Musical Analysis.

Gold's guard was second.

Impulse's percussion was third.
