As much as I hate to say it (because I was really hoping to see Mandarins (non-standstill), BD, and SCV...it was the correct call by DCI and the corps. Radar looked bad, and then when the rain really picked up, I hope everyone had already loaded up so they weren’t still loading in that rain.

I know dozens of people who go to Allentown instead of Indy solely for outdoors 

Count me as one of those people - I will not attend an indoor DC show.  The reason that I went to Pasedena in 2007 was because it was supposed to be the last outdoor DCI final since Indianapolis was supposed to start in 2008.  Turn out that indianapolis was not ready for 2008 and the Bloomington IND outdoor venue was used instead.  I would have attended that, but couldn't.  So Allentown is my finals.

At the hotel dried off. Much as I wanted to see everyone it was the right call. Another 20 minutes and it would have been a monsoon. Standing water on Hamilton trying to get out of there

We were across the street, at Big Woody's for the Crossmen alumni party, and thank God we were under cover. It was absolutely pouring rain. Crazy.

One the strangest experiences I’ve ever had in drum corps was Allentown in the early 80s back when they morning prelims and evening finals.  The night before it rained very much like tonight if not more so.  In the morning when arrived at the field, it was still extremely wet.  Someone knew someone and before we knew it, a large helicopter from a local military base showed up and started running back and forth across the field for about 30 minutes.  Shorty after that the field was dry enough to start prelims.  Never happen today.

Assuming The weather is better tomorrow, I think DCI should institute a Rain Date.

Have the corps who did not compete tonight, do so Saturday afternoon. Ticket holders would be happy.

Those corps are already multiple hours down the road towards their next show at this point.

I believe the Bluecoats are on their way to a 8:00 am parade in Canton for Hall of Fame
