You and your committee have been tasked with identifying things that corps must stop, start, and change starting in 2020.

GO!

Played pipe band for 10 years.  Can’t wait to hear them with shotgun mics.

Stop:  Tossing rifles and flags over/away from the corps at the end of the show; tossing rifles from a high prop to guard members on the field.  Body movement/dance included to “Check the box.”  Fine, if it is organic to the show, however IMHO, that doesn’t happen very often.

Drastically cut back:  Running.  Too much of it appears to be aimless.  So many corps doing so much of it,  It is getting to be very tedious.

Keep doing:  Lots of unison full guard work.  Thanks Crown/Boston.  This change has made guards very exciting again and has ended BD’s strangle hold on the Zingali.

Stop: feeling like you must have stages,, winterguard uniforms, trombones, sousaphones, no hats, overkill electronics to be competitive  (then again, it feels like GE is being scored more for this "stuff" than actual content or even sometimes use of it so?)

Start: having difficult drill while playing (thank you to some corps this year for still doing that) and go back to some type of corps identity

Change: judging - if electronic balance is bad or has issues, why does this not impact the music or GE scores? 

 

I have other things in mind too (possible split up of World Class into 2 division types... more traditional v/s anything goes...aka summer BOA/WGI which is where it's going... but I'll stop there

GO!

Stop: Singing, Violins and Guitars. 

Start: Playing music we can tap to.

Change: Have at least 8-10 Corps per show to include Open Class Corps.
