Hey all, I just got contracted for Madison on Lead Sop today, and I think the alumni and fans will all love this year’s show. Arguably one of the most demanding Lead books I’ve ever seen from any corp

Given the state of the thread, I got a kick out of seeing this in a shop window yesterday. posted from the DrumScorps app

Having sent tuition dollars to Madison and watched our son grow, mature, and perform the crap out of shows the last couple of years (before aging out) I can tell you I wish nothing but success for the

I have to say that I think The Madison Scouts need to keep being The Madison Scouts and don't focus on the negative. Keep their heads up and enjoy themselves. 

When I first watched the corps via the web I did not like the look of the uniforms. I totally changed my mind about that so I want to say to whomever designed them that you did a good job in my opinion. 

Keep it up and have a good run into finals. 

 

This is the mindset that got Pioneer so many years of last place lovely Irish Springs shows.

Blue Star are not two time DCI World Champions. There are only a small handful of corps that can make the claim of having won DCI.

Kingsmen
SCV
Madison
Blue Devils
Cadets
Star
Cavaliers
Phantom
Carolina Crown
Bluecoats

Any one of who ever marched in one of these corps has a higher expectation for their corps than any fan or alum of other corps could fathom. They wear their championships like a badge of honor.

This sounds like a Nebraska football fan.

LOL. My son is entering his senior year at Nebraska and was drumline captain last year. They get pretty ... protective ... about their football history.

The same could have been said about the Blue Stars prior to '82. Welcome to the reality of rebuilding. 

Ummm...no.

If I recall that far back, it seems like that period of the demise of the Blue Stars was a result of how many female members came off tour pregnant.

This really is difficult for you to understand, apparently.  There is no such thing as "drum corps royalty".  It is 2019, and judging is not based on "royalty" or what used to happen back in the 1970s. 

The Madison Scouts placed 17th in San Antonio because there were 16 better corps there.  You can accept that, or you can do something to help your team.  But no amount of firings or online tantrums are going to get Madison back in the top 6.

"Royalty" organizations exist in every industry, activity, sport, etc... Ford, GE, IBM, Coca Cola, Microsoft... Yankees, Cowboys, Celtics, Packers, Canadiens...Cavies, Garfield, SCV, BD, Madison.
