may have already been questioned but what happens if a front ensemble decides to setup somewhere on the field now instead of the front sideline.  Judges wouldn't be able to get near any of it

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

Maybe those instructors should consider that there are waaaaaaaaaaay more corps members who are injured because of excessively intense rehearsals, and being expected to tough it out when there is an a

 awesome stick visuals...Well, after reading this thread... and mulling over some things... I think I stumbled on what the future DCI percussion battery will be like:

 

It's got it all. Potential branding, T-Shirt sales for the different costumes each corps will use... All the visual enhancement and color....awesome stick visuals... Don't have to worry about how clean.... AND you can free up about 15 more spots for the guard. And note that Nyango plays on TAMA. 😋

the reason the complaints have been growing for the last 3 years right there in this picture. THE reason

puh-lease.  while he's certainly the poster child for bad decisions,  there have been very many close calls (even by the so-called experts) which could EASILY have ended in disaster. it's purely luck that many more serious incidents have not occurred.  i applaud the decision. drill has been too complex for "in-the-form judging" for years.  i was ok with the "perimeter" concept as well;  just keep them out of the drill.

until his disaster season a few years ago, the calls were far less quiet. The second he "ruined" a Crown moment, and i'll admit that was a horrible call on his part, the occasional complaints became the Hallelujah Chorus

straw that broke, etc...   the close-calls have always been there.  "suck it up, it's drum corps" is no longer an adequate answer when it comes to member safety.  THAT'S what's changed.

actually his uh, choices at San Antonio started the snowball. Finals..oy vey. Then San Antonio this year...OC had that snare feature by the stools or chairs....someone dropped a stick ....and had spares in their bag, barely missed a beat...and he had to run to get that stick, bumping players as they played and almost getting hit by a guard member.

 

or he waits for them to finish, and see if what happens next allows him to get the stick. I know which one pretty much everyone else in the world have done

Oiiiiiiiii…… Man.... one of the big  unwritten rules... make sure when you get dropped equipment that A, can you get it SAFELY, and B, is it a danger to the performers... like a flag pole embedded like a land mine in 4 inches of mud? (been there done that)

mic up the soloists and small ensembles, pump up the synth goo, make sure the person on the mix board makes it sound purdy.  

the future of dci music is bleak.

megaprops, megatarps, and anything and everything to not reward movement resembling marching.

the future of dci visual is bright for people who dig that.

i have seen the future of dci, and it is wgi. 

change or die.

Might change they way they're tuned?

We can only hope. The tensions have just gotten too #### high IMHO. I'm all for Kevlar heads. I've loved the stuff since the late 80's. But some of the lines sound so choked at this point.
