Ok what in your opinion has tested drum corps more than this. During the depression and WWII local Posts and Scouts, etc were able to keep small local corps going.

Contracted for my third season of World Class, pretty much everyone I have talked to wishes for the cancellation of the season.  I am fine with reevaluating another week or so, but they need to act.

OMGosh, think of all the economic, geopolitical, environmental, national security, and sociological changes that drum corps has survived!  "Nothing like this..."?  Please, calm down  You're overreacting.

“It’s time because something else might be postponed”

Always defer to the powers in charge

Major League Baseball hasn’t canceled yet. They start earlier. I expect them to cancel. Same for DCI, a few months down the road.
