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.

Now that you mention it... what training does DA or other DCI heads have in harrasment/ethics issues and how to handle them? Uncle Sam has yearly training on it for employees and extra training for management on how to handle it properly. Was any training taken by DCI heads or ye olde “yeah yeah we got it handled” until crap hits the fan again

The timeline and communications in the Arsenal fiasco suggest otherwise.  But in any case, we agree on this:

Yeah way past the old “they can’t do drum corps after they age out “ line they used to say. Nice credibility issue if someone or their parents googled drum corps. “Hey they said no doing corps.. so what’s this all age they neglected to mention. What else are they not telling us “
