No. They warmup at the stadium site.

I'm thinking about going to finals for the first time since 2011 (which I disliked so much I didn't go back for 8 years so far).  Everybody's telling me I gotta get back out to an actual show.  All my old drum corps fan-friends have moved out of Ohio though.  I'd like to take my 9-year old son, but I know he'll get bored pretty quickly.  Are there any good hotels nearby that aren't too expensive?  I am half night-blind at can't drive at night to a suburban hotel.

We’ve had great luck on Hotwire as late as the day of finals.

Yeah, do this! No one ever gets ###### off because you are sitting in their seats and then have to deal with poachers!  We just laugh and laugh and never talk about what an ######## you are, or take note of your corps jacket to see whose corps is being represented so well. And don’t worry, I would never take a picture of you being ejected from my seat and then post it to social media.

Is “ok boomer” the right response to your post?  Asking for a friend.

Sad part is you never know if you tell someone they are in your seat they might go psycho on you. Wasn’t a corps show but saw some squatters get evicted and they spent the next 20 minutes off to the side giving stink eye and pointing to the rightful sitters. After that security escorted them off as people complained

Or ask @Terri Schehr about the time the poachers demanded to see her’s and Jim’s tickets, or the time the poachers asked if they could stay for the next show.

Sure, I’ll take an “OK, boomer” for this.

What’s really hilarious is that no one but Jim and I have had those seats since 2009.
