The top 6 are all pretty much neck-and-neck right now. (There's less than 2.5 points separating 1st place from 6th place. ) There's usually a definite leader at the start of the season, but this year seems to be a different story. I think as of now the top 3 are Crown, Blue Devils and Cadets......but Bluecoats, Cavies and SCV are right on their tails. If Phantom wants to make the top 6 this year they're gonna have to work it. They're not far behind, but since the competition looks so tight this year they're going to have to pull something out of their magic hat....er.....helmet.

edit:
Crown has several videos on YouTube now. They're using regular "brass" horns (as opposed to silver), and they sound amazing for it being this early in the season. I can see them taking the percussion and possibly brass captions, but as of right now the drill feels really predictable, generic and a bit boring to me. And the guard......well.....I adore Adam-He's a sweetheart, but I just don't understand why they brought him onto their faculty. His style of equipment work just doesn't compliment what Crown has been doing in my opinion.

This concludes today's episode of "MM Whines About DCI".

Pretty much the whole staff came from Star at one time or another.....the brass staff was with the Cadets in the early '80's.

Pat Methany for the win! Well, 2nd place.
Did you guys see Pride of Cincinnati when they did "First Circle"? (I think it was 97 or 98.) It was such a great show.

Beanpot Invitational

I have an extra ticket to tomorrow night's show at the Manning Bowl in Lynn, MA (Boston). The Corps performing are the Crusaders, Crown, Phantom, and Bluecoats. It's a $30 20-30 yard line seat. I usually skip the first half (Surf, Spirit) to watch the drumlines warm up in the lot, but I'll be there before 7pm if you want to go and see the whole show.
Anyone interested?

I had someone bail on me, and everyone else I know who is into DCI already has July 4th plans, so I'm just trying to find someone to take the ticket.
I'll try to take some video of the show and will post on youtube later.

P.S. I'm loving that Phantom is doing the music of Michael Kamen. He is one of my fave composers, and definitely underrated for his film scores.

You know if you threw in "Meet me at the Hilltop for lunch before the show" I would have been there!

Hope you have fun! In all honesty, not sure I am ready for the "new" Manning Bowl! Too many good memories at the old one!

I was at the Bowling Green show and I liked what I saw so far. Was at WDW last week, so I didn't get to update here. This weekend, we are heading out to Kalamazoo for the regional show. It's going to be family time since my kids live out there! My daughter-in-law is anxious for another DCI show, too. Can't wait until my granddaughter is old enough to attend, but that will be a few more years!

Wow......

As of tonight the Bluecoats, Crown, Blue Devils and Cavies are all neck-n-neck. Somehow the Cadets snuck ahead to the top. (Please don't ask me how this happened. )
