And he is off to BD, allegedly.

He had top billing in the brass instructional staff, and there was otherwise no "caption head."

Not to be confused with the assistant to the regional manager.

huh? In 2011, SCV finished in 7th and PR in 6th. In the year prior, the results were the same.  

Easy does it.  Just replying to EricS post of "Shaw did turn around SCVs brass fairly quickly, so..........." so my non researched post had me thinking SCV had better brass results, but I was wrong.  Nothing about final placements.  In 2011 PR's brass had a 18.3 to SCV's 17.7.  In 2012 PR was 19.4 and SCV 18.8.

But another important note for purveyors of this thread: losing your caption supervisor is a huge deal. 

Only if one or both of the Caption Managers below are gone too, since they do most of the work.

Shall we agree to disagree?  I value a caption supervisor as a queen in chess and caption managers (or heads) as rooks.

Im with you, but regardless of titles, SCV losing their arranger and some brass leadership from a championship and high brass winning team is going to obviously hurt them. It seems logical that Crotts will fit great at BD, he marched there after all. Shaw is no brainer at Phantom. Seems like Crown folks now going to be leading SCV. Lots of changes at one time, going to take a bit to get things settled back in. I'm sure SCV will still be great, and they've kept some key brass spots, as well as a top percussion program, helping with the transition.

I didn't know Evan van Doren was an arranger, but it's clear that he owes me...

From what I understand the transition to "Caption Supervisor" last year was to make it a bit more hands off position for Crotts anyway.  The horn line was really run by Mark Nichols (the Caption Manager) day to day.  According to people close to the corps Crotts was around a little in the beginning of the season and a few days at the end, but not really running much of anything.

 

Fortunately for SCV it seems like Mark and the core team of brass staffers are still on board for 2020 along with some new additions.  

 

The other strange thing about all of this is how active TrumetCam (aka Chip Crotts) has been on this thread talking about himself in third person and how SCV music will be taking a step back without him being there....

Hello Kajarlo, all facts about 2019 SCV. However incorrect, this account not run by Crotts. It was opened years ago by a number of friends to join DCP and to share with fellow dci lovers and colleagues to stay active off season and when away from teaching. In fact, there are a number of users like this on the dci site and use these accounts to enjoy the threads from time to time without feeling like they are getting called out personally for whatever reason. If you haven't noticed, but as evidenced by your post, this is clearly why they have to do this. 

If there is a need and clear agenda to call out people in the activity, why do it here? If you'd like to speak in PM, I'm glad to share with you, but no reason to try and drag someone's name through the mud here when you don't have current factual information. All of us as users, are entitled to our opinions.  I personally do think it's a big change going forward, and many others feel the same as well.  He was instrumental in the brass change and improvement, all clear facts. I think many of the other changes that have been mentioned recently are big ones as well.

I get you must be someone close to the folks you mentioned above and likely sound upset about him leaving, but really a need to do this on here?? I suppose we could also just talk about all of the other real and currently teaching and designing users on here (Bruckner8??) and so on??
