I remember GH not allowing my high school marching band onto the field at J. Birney Crum at USSBA/USBands finals in 2002 because we had rolling props.

We saw the stadium people inspecting the turf during the intermission. Then Boston pushes in their big props and I bet the decision was made right then. 

Honestly, I’ve been thinking it was just a matter of time before a stadium balks at allowing big heavy props to damage their field. 

It seems like DCI may move to another stadium next year if that is the case.

I am bummed out for everyone at this show. I understand why DCI has their ticket policies, but in this type of instance I wish the organization would least give the audience some type of reimbursement.

Talen stadium officials are saying the corps are ruining the field with there props so stand still only

It is a professional soccer stadium in the middle of soccer season.  Could you imagine if one of the players trips on a divot during the next home game and damages something?

I think they should get their money back from Talen

Jim has been saying the same thing.

The worst of it is that being so close to Indy every show is important to corps who are close and fighting it out, and you lose an opportunity to compete.  You spend all the time and energy and then a standstill.

Divot?  Isn’t it turf?
