From what I read most here disagree and some mock this notion.  That's fine too.  

Understood, and yes agree to disagree

Frankly, at this point, I really do not care. I am more concerned about whether or not the activity on which I grew up, the activity that made me the man I am, will survive. When the dust settles, wha

Speaking as a 60 year old dinosaur, I have no problems with the concept of the costumes of today.  Having spent the last 42 years of my life following/marching with/teaching/following BAC I will say I

And did any of the pictured performers have a problem with what they were wearing? If not... why are others speaking for them?

When the dust settles, what and/or whom will be left? This pandemic has forced me to rethink things that are important, and leave behind all the traditional thinking. I will learn to enjoy life more and savor the little things. I just hope drum corps will still be one of those things I'm able to enjoy.

Just so you know, the first picture (there were TWO photos) I posted was  taken down...................it was there but just for a bit............

The remaining photo (Madison) has a caption above (worst uniforms in drum corps history...Page 13)....but

that is NOT for the Madison photo...................

I simply posted two photos, with no wording................why there was an edit/take down is beyond me...............
