What rule would you propose for the 2019 DCI tour?

Recommended Posts

Have corps submit both drill/visual design and music book prior to the season to have it graded by panel for degree of difficulty. Then during the season have the judges evaluate performances based off the established degree (i.e., they'd have the design and book prior to the show, know what's coming, and evaluate execution of it). Updates during the season would be submitted, degree of difficulty re-established and communicated to judges, then incorporated into the sheets. Judges would also send their comments on execution forward to next judging slate so they could determine if noted problems get fixed.

Don't know but maybe? In any case, at least corps would know going into the season where they stand via other corps in terms of show design and musical book. Then it would be a true test of executing a lower degree show or shooting for the moon and executing. 

Bringing it back to musical arts, all-state tryouts do this kind of thing all the time. Each musician is given the same piece of music (degree of difficulty established) and then evaluated anonymously against how well they perform against the standard (at least in our state where the judges are behind screens so the performers don't even see them).

life as I know it may come to an end if I see a Sousaphone in a drum corps performance

Does anything prevent Sousaphone from spreading? Why isn't that just as contagious as French horn and Trombone since 2014?

Didn't Music City use them their first year?  I know some Open corps had to for the one season.

Personally enjoy the timbre of trombones much more than baritones.

Some corps have used them well to enhance the music.

We'll have to let these comments slide.

Our two opinions trump your single opinion.
