Out of curiosity: why the specific years chosen? It's an interesting mix (and avoids me using my favorite batch of captions, from 2007, darn you! lol).

  1. I wanted to use years with different DCI champions (Cadets, Crown, Bluecoats, Blue Devils)
  2. I didn't want a run-away or dominant DCI champion (Mainly a Blue Devils problem, but 2018 Vanguard won by over a point, was 1st on 9 of 11 judges sheets)
  3. 2019 had to be included, and I wanted to stay as recent as possible.

Thus, my sheet ended up looking like this...

  • 2019 included (Blue Devils)
  • 2018 rejected (SCV too dominant)
  • 2017 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2016 included (Bluecoats)
  • 2015 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2014 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2013 included (Carolina Crown)
  • 2012 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2011 included (The Cadets)
  • ...if I had chosen to go further/include more seasons...
  • 2010 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2009 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2008 would have been included (Phantom Regiment)
  • 2007 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2006 would have been included (Cavaliers)
  • 2005 rejected (The Cadets already represented)
  • 2004 rejected (Cavaliers would have been represented by 2006)
  • 2003 rejected (Blue Devils already represented)
  • 2002 rejected (Cavaliers would have been represented by 2006)
  • 2001 rejected (Cavaliers would have been represented by 2006)
  • 2000 rejected (Cavaliers would have been represented by 2006; The Cadets already represented)

No years prior to 2000 will ever be used do to different judging sheets.

Makes complete sense to me. Thanks for the insight!

We are barely halfway to the participation level needed for a season. I'm going to make a last-ditch effort to get more people signed up, but we need 6-8 more corps in every division to make the season happen.

I want to thank the very passionate group of six or seven of you who tried to make this season happen. Unfortunately, we just didn't get enough sign-ups to make it worthwhile to run a season. My goal each year is to have at least 40 corps total with 12 corps in every division to make it worth the time and effort of running the season. We only got to about 75% of that this year.

Sadly, this means Season 30 is cancelled. Hopefully 2021 will see a return to some form of normalcy, and we can try running another season with live corps/scores.

Thank you again.
