Re: Thoughts of 2010

The Worlds Largest Children's Museum is in Indpls... Question: Just how large are these children and is there anything we can do for them? I mean, are they too large to fit in the family car? Do other kids tease them at school?? Can they ride the rides at Disneyland??? Are their parents prone to tr...

Re: Thoughts of 2010

I wasn't saying that having it in Indy was a bad idea. I agree with all the positives BigMo mentioned. I was simply pointing out a possible reason why attendance might be down. For some percentage of the fans, going back to the same place may not have the same appeal as going to a new venue. The ha...

Re: Thoughts of 2010

* I realize that the economy had a big impact on attendance at DCI Finals this week. But in all honesty, in my 31 years of attending DCI Finals there have been other years that the economy was "not good". I was a little shocked by the empty seats in the stadium at quarter finals and finals, even wi...

Not that it matters, but I remembered after posting the previous message that I also attend finals in Foxboro!

Thoughts of 2010

Finals are over and the scores are in. Congrats to the Blue Devils for having another undefeated season. Also - congrats to ALL the corps and the corps members for their efforts this season. With that being said....may I be allowed to give some thoughts, as an "old-timer" who went to his first DCI F...

Re: Finals Roll-Call

I haven't missed many DCI Finals since my first one in 1979-Birmingham, Alabama. I made it to Dallas, Buffalo, many times to Madison and Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, Denver, College Park, Bloomington and Indianapolis last year. But alas....not this year. It wasn't in the budget. I will miss it. And I, ...

Big Mo's Final Rankings vs DCI's rankings

Below you will see my final rankings before QuarterFinals next to the QtrFinals line up on the DCI website. I did ok with World Class but have some differences with Open Class. I am fairly "spot on" with World Class with more differences in Open Class. WORLD CLASS BigMo's Rankings......................

Re: Random Historic Statistic

I find this all curious, at best. #1 - I'll match the heat an humidity here in Georgia and Alabama with Texas anytime. #2 - if the reason Crossmen can't attract the Texas Band members because of the heat and humidity, then move your rehearsals. Blue Stars don't practice in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The p...

BigMo's Rankings Thriugh August 4, 2010

CAN YOU SAY TIGHT! There are several spots that are tight and up for grabs. The one exception is the top spot. But for the rest of the corps it could be a very interesting end of the season. Do you think that Carolina Crown and The Cavaliers can get any closer? WORLD CLASS 1. 95.862 Blue Devils (1) ...
