One last post from me, for now

I need to do a better job of managing my time and need to free up significant time for several projects that I've left on the back burner too long. In my situation, it's obvious that the block of time to do that has to come from the Internet. I am stepping down as a Moderator here and will not be pa...

Thank you, all, for all the kind remarks about the review. [funny moment from Madison]: Before BD's show, a guy in section EE, where we were, yelled "Leave the gun. Take the cannoli." I thought I was gonna die. :lol: I wish I'd heard that one! That's great! Another funny moment... though maybe I onl...

How much of a drum corps nut are you??

This really happened Thursday at Quarterfinals. Put yourself in this position. You've gone to Camp Randall for Quarterfinals. You've seen all but the last two or three corps. Either just before Phantom's or BD's show, Brant Crocker makes an announcement over the PA paging a spectator. It's you he's ...

It didn't take much time at all with the spreadsheet, once I got down to it. But I had to be very careful that I had the right answers: BD in 3rd Cavaliers in 1st Bluecoats in 4th Phantom in 2nd Cadets in 5th Boston in 10th SCV in 6th Crown in 8th BK in 7th Madison in 9th Glassmen in 11th Spirit in ...

August 11-12, 2007-- Madison, WI Resume Hut review (LONG)

RH's Fair and Balanced (not) Look at 2006's Top 17 of 2006 I was sitting low in the lower deck at midfield and could hear and see details quite well but couldn't see the overall drill design or the visual ensemble (unless it was really off) very well. Your mileage may vary, particularly elsewhere i...

Phantom looks pretty clearly 3rd. Once in a while, a corps will come in championship week and make a big move. And by big move, I mean change places with a corps that's about one to two points away from it. But in the long run you'll come out ahead betting against it every time because it's an unusu...

There is no more GE Percussion or GE Brass (it's "GE Music" now), but your point is well taken. Since just two GE judges determine 40% of the total score, and the other six judges carve up the other 60% of it (assuming no penalties, which is normally the case), impressing the GE judges is absolutely...

There seems to be a misunderstanding. Let's correct it. The Sound Machine party for those members who would like to beat each other up, or have longstanding grudges to settle, or who just don't like each other... never have and never will... has now been scheduled for Boxing Ring 2 at the Madison YM...

oooooh-kay, yes, people are definitely getting ready today for some hot sweaty knees in their back at Camp Randall later this week.

I'm sure it's for the cinecast... which is of the top 17 corps, so it starts after the first intermission. There are two reasons to take a one hour break before the cinecast. 1. People in the stadium need a long dinner break at some point. The stadium can't feed several thousand people in 17 minutes...

OK, folks, this thread is starting to take on a nasty personal edge about who's a bigger drum corps fan than who, and how that's best demonstrated... an argument that probably cannot be settled to the satisfaction of all. Let's allow it to remain focused on the Sound Machine get-together on Friday s...

Weird. Cavies lost two mutes last night, too. I was pretty worried for a few minutes. I wonder if they need to check the bags they're taking them out of? It's possible that some of the corks that grip the mute to the inside of the bell on the sides of the mutes have fallen off. But here's an inside...

:D :D :D I was there in Naperville last night too, with my wife and daughter, and I'm smiling because my wife had the same rant as Terri about an "expert" sitting in front of her, though at least the one in front of her wasn't misinforming the newbie during the shows, only between them. And I had so...
