Or things not looking good for DCI?

Slow to clean house, youth organization (DCI) wastes no time punishing critic (Arsenal CEO)

Philly.com can put out all the articles it wants.

Their previous articles haven't pushed DCI to do much of anything.

As long as corps have kids willing to march,and people willing to buy tickets and support them,

DCI doesn't  have to do anything,except "lip service".

My hope is that discontent being expressed here and on other sites,may finally   cause have a ripple effect,

forcing DCI,albeit screaming and kicking,to act.

What a convoluted situation this whole thing is.  Holy mackerel.

However this all shakes out, I hope the kids who want to march or do SoundSport this summer find a home.

Today,  Arsenal BoD has notified its 2019 members that DCI has reversed its position and has accepted Arsenal for participation in the San Antonio Regional. The communication from Arsenal speaks of them as a drum and bugle corps but does not specify whether they will appear as a competitor or exhibitor, whether they will be included in the Open Class or in SoundSport aspects of the Alamodome show.  There is not a specific mention of the disruption of the "assessment" review by DCI to welcome the corps to touring although the Arsenal administration admits that changes have been made to the corps' structure while maintaining the aims of their original founder who resigned in the communication uproar in their outreach to Oregon Crusaders mms. The actual notice to Arsenal mms can be found on Arsenal's fb page.

As of this hour and posting, DCI website's show information has yet to mention Arsenal as now appearing at San Antonio but that section of the DCI website has been consistently erratic and quite slow in making adjustments for many shows and corps. Corps news and announcements have ceased to be a usual Friday morning 11 am Eastern time regular on the DCI site as well for this off-season.

That is not a reversal of position by DCI.  It is merely a confirmation that Arsenal is proceeding as a SoundSport ensemble in 2019.

Thanks. What you specify was not made particular in the announcements I read.  What is the source for your conclusion?
