YEA suspends operations of Cadets 2 and Lays off 9 Employees

Recommended Posts

Even though Cadet 2000 posted this news in the Cadets 2019 thread earlier, this thread might allow the other thread to be about the upcoming year for the Cadets.

A shame- from what it looks like from reading the statement, C2 really couldn't pay for itself to make it viable within their budget. Seems to explain certain things to me now.

Good idea.  I know they're a DCA corps, but with obvious ties to a DCI group.

Imagine DCI losing a headliner like SCV, BD, Crown, Bluecoats.  That, IMO, is what this is like for DCA.  A headliner corps... now gone.

And IMO, C2 has put entertaining programs on the field every year. Programs I could "get" without needing a doctorate in something.  LOL. That, again in my opinion, is what DCA is supposed to be all about... "fan-friendly" shows.  C2 delivered on that front.

YEA is doing this so they have enough funds and assets for their Anniversary project.

Smart  move? (NOT) Sacrifice the ONLY successful part of your organization over the last 5 years

C2 was 1/10th of their operating budget.  Hardly the only successful part of the organization.

Sorry, but Cadets and USB haven’t been at all successful in your eyes??

That aside, Cadets are THE integral component of the organization, if you have to lose a limb, even an important one, to save the patient, then start chopping

Heh... I didn't know it at the time, but it turns out C2 was the last corps I announced as DCA champion, in 2016.

That night, it certainly didn't seem that both of us would be gone from DCA now.  LOL.

George, I agree... as much as I hate to see C2 go. They were a great asset to DCA.

The hierarchy/priority, from the day Holy Name was founded in the 1930s,  has always been 1) Cadets. 2) Everything else. And when the "everything else" includes the band circuit that has been the chief fundraiser for the organization... well... it's a reasonable assumption that the circuit is higher up on the "everything else" ladder than was/is C2.
