I've been thinking of asking this for several years and never got around to it.

Obviously, this is not a scientific poll, as respondents are self-selecting.

If you spend on other areas than DCI as well, feel free to include your spending for DCA, parade corps, etc.

I'm hopeful also that many members who read but don't post will take the survey.

Feel free also to comment, if you'd like. 

This poll has not been commissioned by DCP, DCI, or any other entity.

Ugh. I meant to include 'volunteering' in the second question. I'm sure I had; I don't know what happened to it. If you volunteer, please put it under 'other.'

I will spend slightly less this year since I am skipping the Chester, Pa. show. I would bet it is one of the more $$ tix on tour in a given year. Will be making the 2 night jaunt to Allentown!! 

Go Blooo!!!! :)

Ok, who's spending up to $10K and what are your thoughts on adopting a 60+ year old boy? 

I'm open to adoption for half of that..................and I bring my own pharmacy too.

We are still waiting for the postcards and for your review of the corps in Brittany.  Two members are marching in Madison Scouts this summer should you wish to re-spark your French.

Not spending one red cent this year - same as last year. Madison still gets my yearly donation regardless.

That counts in the poll, though.
