PER DCI [from an email I received from them]:
FloMarching will stream all of Finals Week including the entire Finals competition and Awards Ceremony. 
Finals Week lineups are in performance order, they will not be listed until after the results of this weekend's competitions.


Additional notes:
Thursday, August 11th 6:30 PM   "Big, Loud & Live 17" from Lucas Oil Stadium in Fathom Theaters.  
This is in “addition” to the Flomarching “Live Stream” of the same “
DCI World Championship “Prelims” Indianapolis, Indiana, which begin at 10:30 AM.
In other words DCI is offering us the same “options” as back on
Tuesday, June 28th “DCI Tour Premier” Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan.

For the time being I have held off linking any further DCI “Open Class” & “World” Championships at least until tomorrow, Sunday evening, August 7th on Flomarching.  They are “grouping” all of the Class Championships … DCI “Open” Class ChampionshipsDCI World Championships (which include both “Open” & “World” Class Corps.  This is what they have done with this weekend’s DCI Eastern Classic in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

JUDGING: Per DCI 
“A standard DCI adjudication panel consists of eight (8) but varies based on time of season and event. 
Caption: General Effect (GE)
Number of judges: Two (2) for most of the season, plus a doubled panel of four (4) during Premier Events ( i.e. San Antonio, Atlanta, Allentown) and the World Championships.)

It’s actually annoying that the Blue Devils continue to win due to a lack of parity in DCI. How come Blue Devils are not performing this coming week until Indianapolis? They rehearse more then they perform. Everyone else is performing this week.

Here we go. SMDH. 

It's funny cause several years back, some people whined and cried because BD performed more than anyone else, so they were getting more time in front of the judges. Now it's less time in front of the judges with more rehearsal time. 

I see some getting warmed up for next Saturday night when/if BD wins.
