Green activity where the pit has to run on treadmills to power their equipment while playing. 🙂

 

Don't we already have a "Green team"???

And their wardrober has already said they will be wearing that color this season in a way.

 

But I like your idea and expand it to all miked performers must at least be doing a mark time to move the treadmill to power the generators which might be a cool name for the newest drum corps of this century's decade.

I never said a known Name for the sake of a known Name. I said Professional, Highly Qualified eyes and ears from outside in order to counter the perpetual inbread cycle; where the elite snobery thinking has been that only drum corps trained/experienced were/are considered worthy.

And as for your New Faces are in with drum corps, I am reminded of the lyrics penned by The Who: "Meet the new boss; same as the old boss."

and i want them trained on the system current DCI judges use. otherwise a corps season could rise on someone with NO knowledge of drum corps.

 

the new faces...not hardly. otherwise Boston in 5th doesnt win guard. And there's been some other surprises the last few years

Whenever I see this reaction to the idea of widening/deepening the judging pool, I have to wonder... is it really a legitimate concern about knowledge/ability, or do they just not want their apple cart upset?

it's a legitimate concern. I have no horse in the race, my corps has been dead for almost 20 years. Do you want some name who has no idea what they're doing walking into your job and judging you? That's essentially what is being asked for here.

Not really, since:

a.  no one said they would NOT be trained

b.  if they are music/arts professionals, they must already have SOME idea what they are doing

actually Stu never specified anything about training.

 

and if trained....what are the odds they are going to go differently? the criteria is the criteria

There's plenty of baseball "experts" out there famous or not, but I don't know how many of them I'd want to see umpiring an MLB game.

If that is your opinion of my idea, fine, no problem, disagreement makes for good banter. But instead of resopnding to the actual facts within my idea what you did was mis-characteroze, mis-state, mis-quote, mis-represent, and outright type falsehoods about my idea. 'That' is what sparked my bs response.
