My expectation is the Blue Stars will roll out phase two of the ending after the start introduced last night. My hope is it includes cannon shots and a final ending with the baritone soloist playing them out, bookending the show.

All simulated of course. ūüôā

That's no fun.

In HS our concert band did 1812 overture for our pops concert at the end of the spring term.  Some band dads who hunt fired empty shells into cardboard boxes back stage at the appropriate points which were freaking LOUD and alarming even with the warning printed in the program.   Best part was the rehearsal where we practiced it to not be alarmed in performance.  Lead piccolo came 6 inches off her chair with each blast even though she knew they were coming.  We had to stop because too many of us bust up laughing...including the conductor.    She did it for performance too but we were ready and didn't bust out laughing that time.

Captions: Brass=Crown, Percussion=SCV, Guard=BAC, Visual=Crown, GE=BD

That's my Sunday delusion.

What if BD takes Visual and Bloo takes GE (or vice versa)? Then all 5 captions would go to different corps.  That would sure tighten things up...

PR calls me up this week and says "Hey remember when we cut you in 1989 because you weren't ready? Well...it's been 33 years and we think you've matured and just happen to have an open spot in the snare line for prelims and finals. Don't sweat the whole "age" thing...we'll dye your hair." 

We share an age apparently.   That 89 show remains my all time favorite.

It would come down to who gets more 2's on the recap sheet.  This is where BD tends to win the shows. They don't have to be #1 at every caption or sub caption, but they're rarely lower than a 2 or 3 in any of them.
