I wonder if there will be an option for members to back out if they wish with a refund of fees? Though then again, I doubt this kind of thing is covered in the contract they sign so a refund would be impractical. 

Personally, if I had a theoretical kid and I was paying for the dues for them to march in the summer, I would’ve pulled them out after hearing this situation. Too much instability and uncertainty. (not that I would’ve really let them march in a corps directed by Hopkins in the first place but I digress)

Are fees paid in full at this point? If DCI says "No" to this season, is it remotely possible to get the fees back?

I thought they had to be paid up in late April?  I may be wrong.

I ran out of popcorn.  I’ve resorted to pretzels.   Maybe later, Cocoa Puffs or Froot Loops.

There are also some very reasonable people who admit that they don't want to see DCI take these drastic steps against the Cadets, but they still make legit points that if further allegations come out and more of YEA's time and resources are required to deal with all these legal matters (especially if they involve current staff/admin of the Cadets/YEA who may have known about prior complaints against GH and not responded accordingly to the proper authorities), and the members of the 2018 Cadets are in danger of suffering due to all the chaos and lack of stable leadership around them, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that DCI might be forced to intervene. I don't think that it will come to that, but considering the speed with which these types of things can come out in the media, and how it's been shown in other cases how they can pile up, nobody here really knows what's going to happen if things actually get worse.

I think that's one bill I'd wait until the last minute to pay.

Great news, Cadets have regained control of their FB page. 2018 brass playing OHN posted!

Maybe I'm missing it, but what had happened to it, or was it still in that man's control?

When I paid tuition, I’d pay a certain amount every month.  They actually recommended it.
