What’s your point / agenda? You keep posting about the Cadets staff page over and over 

I think someone posted that the cadets are cleaning house. That might be it.

No, he's just obsessed with a webpage. Everything else is hearsay at this point.

Phantom Regiment, Madison and Cadets might consider taking a risk on some talented new young blood wanting to get their feet wet. With both BDB and SCVC doing limited tours there might be some young talented people there willing to consider a position somewhere else, but I don’t think there will be any big name movement between corps. 

This.

Leon May for instance was once a relative unknown, at least in DCI. He came to Crossmen in 1999 and did some great things that never saw the light of day because they were squashed by more senior staff. Look at him now.

Might be a great time for some groups to mine the BOA/bigger high school circuits to find the next generation.

The World Wide WEB has been known to cause people to lose their minds on more than one occasion.

And then Phantom Regiment gave him a chance.  He had this crazy idea of stopping the drill to do body movement features.  Look at him (and that idea) now.

Dare I say that the Cadets are the cradle of drum from the ‘80’s, ‘90’s, and early 2000’s.  Look at all the people who wore maroon and gold who are innovating in the activity today.    It’s amazing to think about. 

 

So I presume you are speaking only of "The Cadets" from the 80's on but when I am looking at this organization, I am looking back to their start of 1934. They were one of the "Power Houses" from the east coast then and have managed to stay competitive to the current day. That's the Tradition of the maroon and gold and the cradle of drum corps.

They are everywhere.. Which makes a Cadet Revival a scary thing for the other corps because alot of great people have a lot of high ranking positions with corps around the top twelve.. What the Cadets are capable of doing this Staff Silly season could disrupt a number of corps.. Not that any of them will leave their positions for the chance at a revival, but you cannot discredit what it means for someone " To Go Home" And be a part of the Alumni that restore the Dominance the corps once enjoyed..
