2021 Corps Size & Midwest Combine Rumors


Recommended Posts

Post on DCP Facebook group says DCI is increasing Corps size limit, for 2021 only, to 165 marching members.  Ostensibly this is to allow all alternates to perform on the field as well.

Is there any truth to this, or is it an unfounded rumor?

The upside would be additional people get to perform; I  suppose if they are bringing alternates along anyway it won't add to bus/housing requirements.

 

And on Reddit there are allusions to a Midwest 'Combine', with Cavaliers, Phantom, Blue Stars, Colts, & perhaps others who will do day trips to performance locations, but return to home base for overnights.  That would simplify the housing issue.

Don't know of any corps that has had up to over 10 alternates.

I know Crown has. Especially during spring training.

I think breaking DCI into regions would be a great idea!

Northeast, South, Midwest and West

I was thinking about alternates on tour.

The most i can remember being on tour was like seven. One year they had a "large" number of guard alternates.

Number sounds high to me as well.  

Not at all especially during spring training. Usually there are about four for guard. and then one or two per horn section. Now that I think about it, I don't think i've ever noticed percussion alternates? I'll admit, it is the one section I rarely pay attention to.

I was 100 percent against this until I threw together a list of the possible divisions(?) I'd be ok with it. As long as there was some kind of "World Championship" offered.
