Next you'll want the Alamo?

Let's see.  2.5 million visitors per year at $15 each is $37,500,000 in revenue minus expenses.  Why wouldn't they want it?

they'd have to pay royalties rights to The Crossmen; it's in San Antonio. Then there's that New guy and his new corps guarding it not far from Austin.

BAC would end up being named: Brownsville-Amarillo Crusaders (BAC.) Hey brown and yellow. That could be their new color scheme since they and SCV have abandoned red.

BAC just announced that ALL winter camps starting in January 2020 will be in Texas instead of Florida.  I wonder if that means we'll hear a chorus of "Texas Crusaders" this year instead of "Florida Crusaders".   🙂

 

As much as it hurts to say as part of the Class Of Florida Crusaders who infused the corps with talent at the turn of the millennia, This is the right move for the corps..

Texas not Florida is the absolute powerhouse in the Marching Arts activity. On average the student wanting to march Drum Corps is going to be a better musician and have better fundamentals than the average kid coming out of Florida. The larger impact in the Brass section.. The Guard and percussion will be coming from far and wide across the Country to try and get into this Top Guard and now recently Top Instruction Percussion Section.

As long as the basement is part of the deal, sure. 🙂

His name is Anthony, I think he has one more year but don't quote me on that. 

Do you happen to know if he has joined the winter-guard?  

It would be worth a trip from the west coast if so..

Adding Jackson and Shah will definitely be interesting. Colin has typically had a more "old school" feel to his percussion writing, but has adapted that style over the years. But with the addition of these guys, it could be a fantastically entertaining percussion book, and overall program this year. Let's also not forget the Iain/Ian combo working with the front ensemble as well.
