Discipline

Recommended Posts

I heard some corps had a membership committee that dealt with behavior issues. Did your corps have that?

Rumor had it in the 1970's that Oakland Crusaders had the "Goon Platoon." Any truth?

Didn't need a committee. For a couple of years, we had one parent who was the "Personnel Manager" who every kid in the corps was scared to death. He was an old Marine Corps DI and fit that image in every possible way. Mean as hell, zero sense of humor and you didn't want to cross him. His own kid, naturally, was the biggest goofball trouble-making prankster in the entire corps. This kid once while the corps was enjoying a day off swimming at a public pool did a cannonball into the shallow end - what no body knew was he had a tube of fake blood in his hand and let it fly as soon as he hit the water. The whole pool thought he cracked his skull open. He was also famous for doing the Baby Ruth in the pool thing a year later ala Caddyshack years before Caddyshack ever came out. How this kid ever survived his youth at home, I'll never know.

Discipline including whips and chains, hangings, and burnings seem so much of the dark shows current DCI designers have inflicted upon the audiences this past decade. Here's hoping 2020 is a bit brighter and less tormented.
