Since scooters were omni-present on every corner of Indy 2019, just how long before some corps builds on what Cadets did with taxis and Broken Arrow did with go carts so that Blue Stars show us what's in their garage and take to the sidewalks and lawn of LOS, inside and out.  Here's a way to keep the costs down.  Then again, might  DCI 2020 use this same gadget to corral field judges to their proper limitations, particularly those of the percussive persuasion. https://www.providencejournal.com/news/20190922/your-scooter-just-stopped-blame-geofence

Start: your engines (it is Indy ya know)

Stop: going out of bounds

Change: tune-ups needed every 10K miles or third week of August, which ever comes first.

Stop:: Listening at all to anyone that tells corps to "go back to...."

Continue: Moving the activity forward.

Start: Leaving the dino's behind to sulk...

Stop: Spatzzz‘s attack on people who came before him/her. Get a clue, we’ve been doing drum corps a lot longer than you.

Continue: Moving the activity forward by teaching music instead of prop management/staging.

Start: Respecting people who are older than you.  ( That’s for you Spatzzz) Really.

Dino’s don’t sulk, they rawr.

I agree with your percussion observation..sometimes it felt like they were doing their "own thing"..and often had nothing to do with musicality..LOVED BK's opener for that very reason..peace

How soon before the designers who are propagating props try this on a DCI field? Safe?

There should be a Goo penalty.

They can’t do that or the top 3 corps would be screwed!

STOP - ALL electronics, including miking individuals

STOP -  Running and scatter drill

STOP -   tarps and excessive props

Start doing more marching and lowering score for bad marching

Start figuring out a way to award MMs for good performance of bad show design (i.e. Phantom Regiment)

Start  banning WGI judges from juding DCI

Change show designs to involve more difficult drill and no more body movement

AND Form a separate division for Stage Performances

AND anonthher thing, no prerecorded anything..

You should go back to 1990 via old vhs tapes because you do not want to see 2020 drum corps and that’s ok, but it’s not going to change for you.
