Oh and I have to ask Terri. We're the band kida wearing their "tour style" marching band t-shirt from last year?

Yes.

The Parent is very excited that son or daughter is in a drum corps and amazed and thrilled that they have found a place online for people just like them! They are known for asking well-meaning but somewhat screechy questions about scores, periscopes and pictures. Unfortunately, the Parent often cannot cope with the harsh environment of DCP and the lifespan is usually brief. Some, however, adapt, survive, and even thrive.

Guilty as charged! Doing my best to adapt and survive!

Staff pack: These pack animals swoop in and surround their favorite prey (spectators) just prior to a performance. They are notable for their matching lanyard badges and wireless headsets. They quickly overwhelm their prey with distracting noises and obstructing gestures, oftentimes driving the spectator away to forage for food.

Moderator pack: The gods of the activity. They keep the meadows safe and rather clean. Noticed by the Colored usernames and often seen swooping in and yellow taping disaster areas before the disaster happens. The smartest minds around, that's for sure. Oh, and they never sleep.

The DCP Habitat is wild, weird, and wonderful. A brief field guide to the kinds of wildlife that can be found here is below. However, I am not so bold as to say that I have explored the whole of this environment; thus, the results of your research are also welcomed.

SuperFans are easily distinguishable as they often have the corps logo as their avatar or corps name in their screen name. They are also known for repeated cheering on show threads as if they themselves were actually at the show. Often, SuperFans live in their own threads, but some venture into the wider world. Of these, many mix well with other SuperFans, but some types are easily upset by numbers or the Blue Devils. These can be dangerous when cornered.

The Parent is very excited that son or daughter is in a drum corps and amazed and thrilled that they have found a place online for people just like them! They are known for asking well-meaning but somewhat screechy questions about scores, periscopes and pictures. Unfortunately, the Parent often cannot cope with the harsh environment of DCP and the lifespan is usually brief. Some, however, adapt, survive, and even thrive.

The Unified Field Theory of Drum Corps, born in the fevered brain of the Messenger and scrawled upon the whiteboard of a glowing screen, is meant both to redeem past failures and restore drum corps to its former greatness. That is, if the arch-reactionary elements are soundly put in their place. The Messenger's incessant and repetitive chatter often drives away others, but woe betide the unsuspecting soul to whom the song becomes a siren song.

The Dinosaur can be found in both herbivorous and carnivorous varieties. Herbivores are placid creatures, contenting themselves with saying 'back in the day' and patiently chewing on old recaps. Carnivores violently attack anything, with exception of brass instruments in the key of G. Both herbivores and carnivores are destined for extinction.

The Mathematician seeks meaning in numbers, constantly putting them into series and sequences. DCP Mathematicians are divided between those who will compare numbers from different spatial/temporal universes, and those who hold that only numbers from the same spatial/temporal universe can truly be validly compared. The rival camps continually accuse each other of failing to understand the rules of numbers, with some mavericks going so far as to state that the rules themselves are based upon false premises. 

 

 

Yep mathematician. Guilty. I like probabilities and stats.

You should see my fantasy football board.

This should have a self-identifying poll.
