George Hopkins just posted on FB that he is moving to Milwaukee for a new career opportunity.  WTF?!?!

We’re a day away from the premier. How about not resurrecting posts about Pioneer or mentioning George Hopkins.

DCI's statement: Pioneer leadership informed DCI that it is moving immediately to replace all current members of the Pioneer board of directors along with selecting a new director for the corps. DCI will hold a follow-up meeting with corps leadership next week to discuss further terms of the organization’s suspension.

Who is Pioneer leadership? The current BOD -- the news article says four of the six members are Blenski family members -- is being replaced, and director Roman Blenski is also out. But neither the news article nor DCI statement identifies the corps' leadership that is making these changes. I thought the BOD & the director were the leadership, but apparently not. Confusing.

Unless they come out with a new image and a completely different way of doing things; they will still be a cellar corps. It's going to take quite a bit for people to trust and take that organization seriously. I still believe that corps is too far gone to salvage.

Some optimism would be nice, but on the other hand, the corps recent history has not been of a corps showing signs of growth.  The incidents that have taken place this past season alone might be enough to supports 8294's last comment.  Maybe at least one year of no competition will help the corps to turn things around.

well if DCI is signing off on new leadership, you can be a plan will be in place to ensure the corps is going to do the right things. Don't think for a second they weren't following up on things with the Cadets and Yea often

Who is Pioneer leadership if not the director and board of directors?
