 Given the speed of light swiftness in which Dan Acheson pulled the application review of the Arsenal Organization before communicating directly with its Corps Director in any fashion, it is clear that DCI considers speaking badly about another Corps a worse grievance than just about anything imaginable.. up to and including presumably providing too cozy a haven for sexual deviants and their enablers

Gonna go ahead and put on the tinfoil hat now so that they (DCI/DCA) can't read my mind.....

What you are saying here certainly appears to be true. I think a lot of it goes back to something that many have said. They've managed to avoid truly giant failures in the protection of MM's and staff and it's been fairly easy to sweep under the rug for a very long time. I would think that none of us was truly naive enough to not suspect that things happened in the past and present times. Whispers travel pretty far in our activity. Survivors in most cases didn't come forward until recently and DCI took the "see no evil / hear no evil" approach. Thank goodness that's changed.

However, an individual posts something on a social media site now calling out other corps / directors....well that's something that DCI CAN'T control or spin. With the utter lack of trust and suspicion which already exists regarding the organization, it spreads like wild fire. And DCI's only response is to nuke the #### out of it. 

DCI....please, for the love of all things holy in the universe.....get a PR person. At least a mediocre one. Watching the organization flop around like a fish on a hook, firing off reactionary punishment to anyone within their scope of vision is starting to get embarrassing.

Sorry to break this to you, but while DCI does have a rule, the enforcement is not spelled out in said rule.  That is left to the discretion of the DCI office staff (or as you would say, made up on th

Agree with this 100% I have said this before, and will say it again - If you are really upset with the handling of these serious issues by DCI and the corps directly in some/most cases, then stop

I'm out. Done, (at least) until there's a new CEO for DCI. I canceled my Flo account. I purchased tickets to two shows in 2019 from DCI's website. I'm now looking into how to request a refun

Ok in a few minutes going to open a new thread regarding Crossmens alleged paying for alleged data cleansing. At least get it off of here 

FYI: your new thread got moved to the category "Tech Talk". Maybe if it had Crossmen in the title it would still be here. :tongue:

my dad started marching in the 60's and was taught by guys like Goodhart, Flowers, Morella...he showed me stuff they taught him, and i used to play along with all the old albums....have had the chance to spend many hours with Flowers and sit under his learning tree. I still geek out throwing old Skyliners cd's on and jamming out

Loved Eric Perriloux's Skyliner books. Marella's great 1971 Blue Rock line is classic. I competed against them with the Cadets, but we were very young, and 1971 was their absolute peak...they deservedly won drums at VFW Nats. Goodheart and Flowers judged us often.
