Yep, couldn't hear the Mandarins baritone solo - 3rd time in a row. Flo Marching doesn't compensate for the groups that place their speakers further toward the crowd, so they have their mics behind the speakers and the solos are virtually unheard. Sadly, the DVD's and CD's for this season will likely have this flaw. This will really suck for Santa Clara.

Of all corps for the stream to screw up in, why SCV? Thankfully it was only for a minute or so. They just blew me away. I don't think there's any question who just won

It's a sports company. It had sound and I'm sure that they feel they met the requirements. It was for more than a minute and affected the stream for other corps as well.

I didn't have a single issue with FloMarching for a change.

SCV was insane. Now the question is, how high will they score.

We could easily start a thread called FloMarching Issues and it would have a ton of posts in it in no time. 😁

I just realized as well that they did not jack up the monthly price to $59 like they did last summer only for DCI months. By Sept, the price had dropped back down to $29 per month. This summer it stayed down so I definitely took advantage of it, unlike last summer when I felt the price was ridiculous. I wonder if so few people paid for it last summer that the Flo people decided it wasn't worth it. I bet they got tons more subscribers this summer! I remember being really perturbed by that price hike! So glad they didn't repeat it!!

Actually they did jack the price to 49.99 plus tax! I had a big snafu with my yearly subscription so when they offered me renewal options (after the renewal processed to my credit card...) I was the pricing structure did reflect an increase during DCI season.

The best value, at least last year, was to purchase the yearly subscription. I was able to get all of the BOA season and DCI season for $150.

Yep, by far. Since I use it for two months each during WGI, DCI, and BOA, that saves me 30 bucks at the very least.

All I know is that about half way through the SCV closer, I looked at my kids and said "There's your champion....just shut it down....no one's beating that". 

 

A few takeaways....

  • I liked the Blue Devils show better than SCV but SCV's execution could not be matched. 
  • How 'bout those Crusaders!!!! 
  • The Cavaliers literally gave me goosebumps
  • I can't say enough about that SCV closer......good grief.

I have an middle schooler who has his sights set on SCV drumline.  I will do everything in my power to make that happen for him but I told him it's up to him to get there.
