The guard in the closer is my favorite from Cadets. Starting when they appear from behind the walls, just perfect sync, and they look like they're having a blast, too.

That was MOST amazing. I got dizzy when they were spinning their whole bodies like they were (i have no idea what that's called, guard people).

Yep I’d say it’s as creditable as reddit at this point...

I hope you aren't saying that SCV 17 and 19 were not great shows???

17 moreso than 19. 19 was a huge letdown after last year IMO.

Are you not able to delete those names once pasted?

This is truly awful. You drag someone all over the country working on your show and then tell them in an email they won’t get paid for another three months? 

Im sure this isn’t the first time this happened in dci but still. I find it beyond the pale that that had the money to hire new expensive staff and as a result don’t have the money to pay staffers who already did the work? 

How can they get away with this and avoid a law suit?

Well it’s early yet as far as the legal process....

And IIRC not being paid was part of the (legal) complaint filed by the person who injured himself falling off the ladder. If I’m wrong someone can correct me but if I’m right wonder if a connection.

Out of respect to whence it came, i'll not post anything as more than enough is already out there.

 

and I will say this....for a drum corps, this is the absolute worst time of year financially. End of season bills are rolling in, the big DCI check usually hasn't come in yet.....it can screw up the best intended plans. I'm not defending or condoning the actions, I am just stating it's real, and I also understand the economics of drum corps, especially one trying to dig out of a financial hole. I know, I was trying to help one do that 21 years ago with far smaller numbers than Cadets deal with
