As jwillis35 said (above):

"The thing to consider when it comes to drill writing is that everyone was influenced by everyone else. The ideas are fluid and each new germ of an idea tends to lead others to try things."

Absolutely spot-on observation.

That’s how it should work right?  The best learn from the best past and present and they Improve on what is good visually and musically, entertaining the audience.  And they love what they do; exploring, challenging and teaching.  There is always a new best.

Bobby Hoffman.

Next question.

Bobby probably doesn't get the credit he deserves. What he did with Bridgemen and then with Velvet Knights was amazing. I miss both corps but especially VK.

Really appreciate all the responses so far... They're not only educating but passionate...And one can see the shoulders that current designers stand on...Peace

Wasn't sure but you may be right.

Someone else asked this too. Did he do Anaheim 72 - 74? I know they won in 1972, but many show designers and programmers often refer to Anaheim 74 as a benchmark show.

Scene: On a rainy evening outside the Newark Armory in 1970, three instructors in a parked car wait for the doors to open so Garfield's drill rehearsal can begin.

Pete (Emmons): "We need a cool set for White Rabbit, something nobody else would do."

Bobby (Hoffman): "Yeah, well how about this?" (Draws a Peace Sign with his finger in the condensation on the inside of the car's windshield.)

Pete: "Wow! That's REALLY cool, but who's gonna figure out how to get them into that from the previous set?"

Bobby: "You are, Mr. Trooper Circle."

Me: (Speechless, thinking "Nobody's ever gonna believe this".)
