  1. I don't know why SURREAL was not listed in this competition. But I am not worried about it. This was just fun and I am glad my favorite won.
  2. Paragould, AR is the extreme North East corner of Arkansas. Memphis Tennessee would be closer (and much easier to get to) than Paragould.

  4. It was fun on our way to DCI San Antonio this year, we stopped at the Temple location. There were gobs of DCI people there.

  12. You must not have seen the FloMo Band Parents tailgate at various BOA competitions. The "tailgate" between prelims and finals has become quite a scene.

  14. I remember the color guard member "dancing" on Hebron's sax solo during preliminaries of the 2015 BOA-DFW. I heard (no real source) that someone complained that the dancer was "dirty dancing" with the saxophonist and it was noticeably toned down for finals and the rest of the season
  15. That is easy for me. 2014 Grand Nats finals performance of Flower Mound's Harmonic Tapestries. I was in the center of the lower section, close enough to see faces, my baby girl was a senior and my son was a freshman. I saw them both at different parts and started to get choked up. This was the first real activity that they had done together, and here they were performing on the biggest stage, and tears were starting to flow. Then when I saw my daughter's face later, I could tell she was getting emotional but fighting it back I couldn't and I lost it. Tears were full on streaming down my face. I wasn't the only one in that area of the stands who needed a large handkerchief for wiping away the tears, most of us senior parents were in full-on cry. A most joyful and happy cry. Years of pent up emotion pouring out for all of us. It wasn't just that the performance brought me (and most of us) to tears, it was all the trials that they had been through as a band, just missing state with the circus show (The Greatest Show in 2012-13) and getting ranked 44th by one judge in music for 2013-14 FloModern and just missing BOA San Antonio finals. Also, seemingly always being the afterthought when talking about Flower Mound bands. We would be at a competition and someone would ask what band we were with, and we'd say "Flower Mound" then then person asking the question would go on raving about how much they loved what Marcus was doing. We'd have to reply "no, that is Flower Mound Marcus, we are Flower Mound High School." To which they would simply reply "Oh" and end the conversation. That performance, that night in Indianapolis was the first mountaintop that the band reached. No longer in the shadow of Marcus, they arrived. Little did we know that would be the launching pad for what was to come.

On the Waterfront - Leonardo's Dream + The 4th Dimension 31 On the Waterfront 49 Leonardo's Dream 49 Sculpt 42 Polarity 35 The Tremendous Sea of Love 29 Lost and Found 37 Loop 33 Pop! 12 (I have nothing against the shows I down vote. They are all tremendously talented. Just playing along with the game)
  19. It is clear that the top four (Blue Coats, Blue Devils, SCV, and Carolina Crown) are the best of the best. I found it ironic that the Best Brass caption and Best Perussions caption went the the 4th and 3rd bands. Isn't this Drum and Bugle Corps? With Best GE going to 2nd place, it could have been a four way tie this year. Personally, and I have stated before, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Crown's show. Of all the music I heard tonight, theirs is the only one still echoing in my head. Still having to place them 1, 2, 3, and 4, I would have put the Blue Coats #1, Devils #2, Crown #3, and SCV #4. I thought there was just too much violin in the BD show and I just didn't get SCV this year, they had too much going on and their poles all over the place were more distracting than anything else. I thought Blooooo brought it tonight. That was the best I've seen of them this year. I thought most of the finalist brought their A+ game tonight. I wish DCI would go top 6, bottom 6 random performance as I feel that the scores are too much locked into the place that they play. It feels to me that the judges scores are somewhat influenced by "oh this corps is playing later, they must be better than the one before it." I don't understand how Crown was first in music, 3rd in GE, and 5th in Visuals (I guess I have no clue what they are looking for visually as I thought Crown had some amazing, fast, and tight marching) while SCV was 4th in GE, 4th in music and 3rd in Visuals. Oh well, just my uneducated opinion as I am just a fan
  20. :raise hand This guy! Planning to have about a dozen or so people over
  21. I signed up and they hit me for the $164 (tax) I am going to send them an email stating that I only wanted one month and would like to buy it in the monthly rate. I'd probably buy three months at $15.00 a month if they had that plan.

  23. Is that right? $150/year? It says $12.50/month ($150 paid yearly). I don't want to buy a year. Are they going to ding my card for $150 right now if I just want to watch DCI and then through Grand Nats?
  24. That would be an interesting exercise, to match up, as best as possible, which Texas Band is most similar to what DCI corps.
