lets not forget the importance to fans of finding shows engaging and captivating, no matter what the judges might think.

I think that's why I still enjoy DCA as much as I do. I find the majority of the shows to be more directed towards entertaining the audience than to wowing the judges. And don't get me wrong, I still love DCI. Even marching, I found DCA to be more fun and crowd oriented than DCI.

Even though it's true, this is why no one post reports like they use to.  

Except that type of information isn’t a report. It’s just hype with no actual information. That’s why it gets made fun of.

 You are not alone. Its not unusual for me to find highly entertaining shows that kept my interest even from the Open Class Division of DCI. My enjoyment of shows levels is rarely predicated on placements. If I list my favorite... oh I don't know... favorite 25-30 shows of all time, the numbers of Corps in that 25-30 that actually won a Title that season would probably be less than half of them. Its no slight on the Title winners either, as much of the time ( but not always of course.. haha ) I'll actually agree with the judges that the best Corps out on that field was who they thought was the best Corps in the competition.

First person to post a camp report stating the fact that they don't think their favorite corps is in for a better year than last I'll buy you a cold 12-pack. You know there are some corps out there in that boat and you know people are thinking it. 🙂

 

 

I don't have camp reports or any other "inside info", but I do like frosty cold adult beverages.  Having typed that...

 We can all predict with a high level of certainty that most fans will believe that the DCI judges that will score their favorite Corps well this season in shows were highly competent, unbiased, professionals, while those judges that scored their favorite Corps below what other judges have in shows, are mouth breathing, biased, incompetent, no good ########,  that don't have a ####### clue what they're doing, and we should  ####  and then #######  and then #### #### #### and once more for good measure #### #### #### , and thats enough of these ######## as you probably get the point by now with THAT judge  .:biggrin:

Post of the year!!

I suppose the sports adage has at least a little but of truth in drum corps. You can't win a championship in the early  ( or pre) season, but you sure can lose one.
