Hey battery folk, all those hours you spend every week working details, so that you're not just clean from the stands, but clean under a microscope? Forget it, no one will be there to reward that leve

I can appreciate those fans that still want their judges to be as close to the MM's they are judging as possible, especially in the execution oriented captions. That said, if we watch ( for example) t

I’m not much of a poster on these forums, but I have to comment on the absurdity of this change. Those of you commenting on the danger of judging in the drill need to tell me how many judges or students have recently been injured by judges being in the drill. Yes, there have been a couple of near misses (with one judge in particular), but fix this issue with better training, required drill film study, or other precautionary measures...not this! I honestly cannot believe there isn’t more pushback on a rule that will effectively cripple the percussion score in this activity.

Exactly -- it's not an either / or proposition.    You can focus on safety in more than one area.  

Biggest change I think we'll see is more batteries staged near the front sideline so the field judges can read them.  This change really should make all the percussion-heads in the audience happier;  but somehow I'm sure they'll still ##### and moan.   :peek:
