I remember watching Cadets perform in Allentown in '99 right before heading back down for retreat and all you could hear was Blue Devils warming up in the park...think it was Duel of the Fates. You could not move that hornline far enough away!!

I expect Jeff to weigh in with his thoughts about this when he gets the chance. I'm not too sure there IS a solution, short of banning all nearby warm-ups after certain time.

Question for drummers:

When a section warms-up an hour before their performance, what exactly are the instructors hoping to accomplish? Is it to get muscles working, improve stick heights, finish off new music?

OOOOOOKAY . . . . .

and by watching on TV, I couldn't hear all that annoying corps warm-up stuff emanating from all over the park! How'd you like that, Big Guy?

former mayor of Pineville (RIP) Ron Beyer always said "those trees didn't grow without help!"

one, loosen up, two, get timing going, get the brains locked in. exercises should cover things in the show, to get muscle memory flowing, then run some show stuff

Great job, spot on as always!

Now that the kids are grown, we have been thinking about doing Pineville, (been through there for a couple quick visits in the past). We love Pondburg, but perhaps next year...

stop on by and say hi! bring whats left of your liver!
