if what I am hearing about the forthcoming statement is true, it's far more than a social media post

 thanks for the heads up.

while under the umbrella, that's not the same as a full member.

Pick Pick Pick The kids well being has been affected, monitory damage has occurred. We need the Amsler Gird to follow any logic that their membership status is an excuse to go dark on an issue with so much collateral damage.

Flo thought it was cool.

DCI apparently didn’t tell Flo Marching what the social media policy was because they posted about it.

Flo is having freeze up problems and not running real time yet...🤪

So a little more carrot and a little less stick?

DCI issued a statement here: https://www.dci.org/news/arsenal-open-class-membership-evaluation-put-on-hold

Quote

 

Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps is a participant in the DCI SoundSport program and petitioned DCI for evaluation to tour as an Open Class corps for the 2019 season.

The evaluation process for Open Class membership is rigorous and designed to ensure that the organization has sufficient financial resources, staff and volunteers, policies, and equipment to tour safely. Strict adherence to all DCI policies and procedures is also a requirement for membership consideration, and it is not uncommon for an organization to require more than one attempt to gain membership.

After thorough consideration, Arsenal's Open Class evaluation was put on hold as a result of its representatives publicly disparaging other DCI organizations. The action offered Arsenal an opportunity to correct the issue, but the organization's leadership chose not to discuss options for moving forward. Unfortunately, this left DCI with no recourse but to suspend the corps' application for Open Class evaluation for the 2019 season.

Arsenal may participate in DCI's SoundSport program in 2019 and petition again for the Open Class evaluation in 2020.

I'm sure we're all curious to hear a little more about this bolded part.

I don’t see anything new here.  

I’m not sharpest knife in the drawer but everything the director of Arsenal wrote was in the Philadelphia Inquirer.  

DCI is going draconian.
