 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:

Me neither.  :tongue:

Seriously... I had early exposure to DCA, going back to 1971, since our local-circuit junior corps' brass arranger during that time was John Arietano of the Sunrisers (he's the main reason I and a number of folks from NJ ended up with Sun)... and my brother-in-law marched with the Hawthorne Caballeros in 1972 and '73. 

A friend marched with DCA's Westshoremen in 1995-96, after a hiatus from corps of about 25 years or so.  So, like in your case, it can happen!!!

How many people did we have in 77? 10-15?  We were called the Jersey crew of course and had dead puppy  contests on the Belt Parkway and even the occasional crispy critters contests which is people burning in  cars.  Winner got a beer at Joe's Bar and Grill

8. Blue Stars

9. Mandarins

10. Blue Knights

14. Colts

15. Madison Scouts

16. Academy

17. Troopers

18. Music City

19. Pacific Crest

22. Jersey Surf (it will be close, but I think some Open Class corps will really step up this year with BDB, SCVC and OC all gone)

I have no idea...nor does anyone else. Many variables that will help determine placements are unknown at this point. Thread would make more sense if it was titled "tell us what you want to happen this season."

Every group will start with their equipment grounded so they can dance around to pre-recorded sounds for the first 2 minutes, followed by 3 minutes of drum solo, with more horn/guard dancing.  The next 6 minutes will be mezzo-forte stand and play 16th note runs, with lots of synthetic goo.  Then to cap it off, some run and gun to the end, with even more synthetic goo, and cymbal rolls.
