I’m thinking amps and electronics was pretty devastating and for me, ruined the activity. I was and am all about the acoustic sound. Now it’s just marching band and so nothing unique. Note I didn’t say “bad”. It’s just that I’ll go watch a marching band now. No difference. Also, I’ll take entertaining over “excellence”, which is the only argument that remains. I find marching bands more entertaining. I don’t get embarrassed watching marching bands (at the college level anyway) like I do with the out-of-place body contortions and inexplicable emoting you see the drums corps do. I’m much more entertained, for example, by a HBCU band. Yup. Even though they overblow and distort the sound.

 the real Madison Scouts are already gone.  Savor the memory, and cherish 'the way they were".   This new

iteration, or bi product of BOA,  is a generic, one size fits all, made in china, artificial spin off usurping the name

through legal remedy.  The greatest joy is yet to come.  Watching this hap hazard group of generic bandies 

pretend to be MS is going to be hilarious.  Cant wait to enjoy the laughter,  and seeing the gaze of disappointment

on the fans who show up.  To the failed executive director who built this house:  stay home.  Its better there.  

Do you have a life outside of griping here?

Take some time off from Corps and reset your priorities as it can do wonders.... (been there done that)

No drama at all.  Can you think of a more devastating event to occur in the drum corps activity than if the scouts were to fold?

My old corps folding.... oh wait....

And that #### sun still came up the next day...

It's great that you use paragraphs, but I'm not sure you understand how they work.

The Academy folding would be more devastating to the DC activity than Madison folding??? Alrighty then.

Good talk.
