Organized chaos?

This our first year in drum corps and I am wondering how similar the corps are run. I’m used to a very organized high school band and our corps seems somewhat chaotic – last minute housing, missing merchandise, no medical staff, etc. I realize there are a lot of moving parts to a tour, so wondering if this is just the nature of being on a tour with a limited budget, or are some of the corps more efficient? Is there a difference between how world and open corps are run or is it just the personality of a specific corps?

Those are some very interesting questions and I wish someone more experienced would answer them. There are so many variables to consider on tours. It can't be easy to run them efficiently.
