Les Eclipses were disqualified? DCX lists Les Eclipses as placing 15th at semi’s in 1984.

I know they were DQ’d, but I thought it was in the 90’s.  

But I guess I am having a senior moment

They sawed him in half and counted the rings.  

Carbon-14 dating but they couldn't catch up to him to get a piece to analyze. 

I seem to remember Les Eclipses going on first in every show in 85, due to the DQ in 84.

1982............he was on the percussion staff starting in 1979..............

And I think to be clear, Hopkins did not become director until after the 82 season. I believe Dr. Richard Santo was still director for the 1982 season and then handed the reigns to GH. So I believe GH's first full season was the 83 summer.

Your are correct (I was on staff from 1979-1983)................

Crazy but sadly unsurprising that DCI has essentially given the death sentence to corps for one overage member, but let corps who enabled serial abusers and rapists to slide like it’s no big deal. Business as usual...

I do get your point.  I wanted to clarify something though......the corps that were DQ'd for overage may have only had one individual pointed out that was overage (in the Bridgemen's case, they were ineligible, as they were going to turn 22 during the season, but they never actually marched someone who was 22......the other 3 corps did........and I know for a fact that two of the corps dq'd  had more overage members than just the one that they were caught with  (and one had a large number).....I won't go into it, but one had 3 and the other one had alot.........
