Agreed.  I get why they're worn. 

And if this was some early season show with 5 corps at some podunk high school, I'd expect those conditions.  This is a signature DCI event with every competing corps (and then some) making an appearance and DCI charges as such.  The stadium should at minimum have seating clearly marked for everyone.

I get it.  Just likely not going to happen.  Maybe some Eagle Scout will think to do something for their community service project one day.  😉

I get upset enough when i get rained out at Allentown.  No way i am going to travel for an outdoor show anywhere else.  Just costs too much to take that risk.

tried to take in NighBeat 7 or 8 years ago and that got washed out, too, so my weather challenges tend to follow me!

 

You should do us all a favor and post your planned shows for the season so we can save ourselves the heartache 😉

Hahahahaha!  I also never use the terms picnic or barbeque when inviting people to my home!

I'm glad you were able to find your seat clearly marked.  It should be that way for all attendees.  The only thing clear for my crew were the section letters.  As you got down towards the field, the row numbers in G began to significantly fade.  And the seat numbers were completely non-existent.  Like you-couldn't-even-tell-there-used-to-be-a-sticker-there worn.

This frustrates fans and puts undue pressure on the poor ushers who have to try and mediate disputes in between performances.  We bought 6 tickets and barely had room for the 5 who actually made it.  I know it's generally a tight fit there, but it's obvious folks were sitting where they shouldn't have been.  

don't get me wrong..i'm not saying it doesn't need those easy touch ups. but i also understand the economic realties. the school district needs a group to work on fundraising for projects like those mentioned. the district i live in has one, and in the last 4 years they raised enough to totally redo the entrance and locker room areas at our stadium. massive iprovement. i wish they had found a way to add 12 rows to the seats on the home side.

 

and i do understand that the old "an ### every 18 inches" theory doesnt work anymore on spaces with seating.

you think DCI's marketing team is good at getting sponsors that pay? if so they'd still be on ESPN

Boom got me there 😜
