Buffalo  Whitewater   Philadelphia  Boston

Gillette has turf now and hopefully they'd turn off the elevator "ding", and more reasonable parking fees.  I'd switch Philly/Buffalo for Denver/Cali.

When thinking of sites, keep in mind rehearsal sites and rehearsal conditions. For about a week.   It isn't ALL & ONLY about you;  the fans.  I could go with:

Pasadena, Denver, Indianapolis, Boston.  I think these are located in somewhat easily accessible areas that would draw good crowds and offer things for non-drum corps activities.

Any towns willing to financially, logistically for housing and rehearsals and even with rotating a commitment to long term. All critical

Add in there a place with many things to do other than Drum Corps for those spectators who want more. Remember the person attending today is just not the die hard, hard core Drum Corps fanatic .

ACK! I live in New England but I wouldn't want to punish my worst enemy with having to drive to and park at an event in Boston.

Weather including,heat,rain,lightning can wreak havoc  on events  in an open stadium.

Look at Friday night  at the Easts the last 2 years.

In the case of Finals ,you have the possibility weather issues  during one or more of the three 

days/nights.

I just don't see DCI  doing an "Open Air Finals" ever again.

3 of those choices are on the most-dangerous in the country list the law enforcement use.
