It would seem so. BD is not alone in this however, imo. It usually takes a lot of fan's begging in the offseason to ultimately get some info on all these Corps.

I don't think fan begging has anything to do with the date of announcements.

Probably so. It hasn't worked so far, anyway.

Speculative, but somewhat backed by data.

Announcement dates for the past seven years:

April 21, 2009

May 21, 2010

April 28, 2011

April 26, 2012

March 20, 2013

May 5, 2014

May 5, 2015

(off-season sucks)

Looking at that list March 20 stuck out as being uncharacteristically early, until I remembered exactly which show that was. Then it made perfect sense.

They don't do it to keep things from the public. They want to make sure their product is the best it can be before they announce it. There is no secrecy there. Sometimes I bet the show could take a turn in it's design. The staff is really accessible.

Also, the "Sneak Preview" event for donors is on May 21. They always announce before that. So "soon" seems like a reasonable estimate.

The announcement will be coming in a week.

The pit is just now learning the music and sound incredible. Really good pit this year yet only 4 Vets.

Just and FYI.... Scott Johnson's mother recently (March) passed away. Her celebration of life is May 14th here in the East Bay. If you are a friend of Scott and did not know this you might give him a little love. If you want information about Marsha'a Celebration of Life please private message me. I know Scott, but I know his sister Tami much better. I say this as I do not know how he would feel about a bunch of strangers sending him condolences, but if you do know him, you might let him know he is in your thoughts. Losing a parent is the roughest things I have had to go through in my life. God Bless.....
