    I saw this thread on another forum, and thought it was cool-maybe because Jeopardy! is one of my favorite TV shows. You pull a Rosie Perezand make it on. What are your 7 dream categories (just one round - 13 is pretty broad) that you would absolutely dominate in? Keep in mind that in Final Jeopardy! you can up to double your score - and they're not very likely to repeat categories from similar subjects in the same round. Keep in mind that "Potent Potables" or "Colors that end in "Urple'" aren't very likely to be categories. Mine: 1. The Simpsons 2. Sport Logos 3. Books 4. Music 5. Sports Trivia 6. Random stuff (I'm fairly decent at random trivia) Final Jeopardy: Duh...marching band/drum corps. What are some of yours?

    http://www.showdesignsbydavid.com Hello! My name is David Parsons and I'm a Visual Designer/Instructor from East Central Illinois. I am currently looking to fill several openings in my Design Client list. I am also available as a Marching Tech or Visual Caption Head in the Illinois, Indiana and Western Ohio area. Being a musician first, my designs are always a visual representative of the music. While designing, I pay great attention to the musical structure. Phrasing, flow, original intent, personal interpretation, what the music makes you feel; are things that should be the foundation of any show design. This is where my musical background and experience plays a large role. My instructional skills are sound yet flexible. Here is where adjusting and adapting matters the most. When working with an ensemble, I not only consider myself as an instructor, I consider myself a troubleshooter. Continually analyzing the ensemble; seeing it’s strengths and deficiencies then making adjustments and developing teaching techniques to make the best come out. Any good instructor should always do this, though still have the knowledge to implement traditional teaching styles. For more detailed information, please visit my website located at http://www.showdesignsbydavid.com. There you will find links to my Resume as well as other information about what I have to offer. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time. You can contact me through the information provided in the website which is listed above, or by Email at david@showdesignsbydavid.com I am a versatile instructor/designer with 23 years experience in Show Conceptualization for Marching Band, Winter Percussion and Winter Guard ensembles. I design and teach not only the staging or drill for all marching activities, I also teach movement basics and design/teach any movement skills used by the instrumental ensembles. If you believe I can be of assistance to your ensemble, please let me know. Sincerely, David A. Parsons Marching Arts Visual Design and Instruction http://www.showdesignsbydavid.com http://www.youtube.com/DrillDesigns https://twitter.com/D3VisualDesigns

    You know...more and more I look at it, and Victor J. Andrew has a realistic shot of advancing on class. A third place finish from Walled Lake Central at State Finals (assuming they're AAA, where they have been for the past few years) pretty much locks up the first automatic advancement for Thursday, and Milford looks to have the upper edge for the 2nd AAA spot (4th at Dayton.) However, if Victor J. Andrew turns it on like I know they can, they can slip by Milford and take the second AAA spot, and potentially give Illinois 5 bands in semifinals.

    Hey all. We haven't had any site updates recently, so we thought we'd take the time and update you all on some of the goings-on now and in the near future. The 2012 Marching Shows thread is now live. Feel free to post your 2012 shows there, with your director's permission. Please join me in welcoming Huddletrip as a site sponsor. We'll have more information on this in the next few days. We're going to have a few staff spots opening this year. We'll have an application and more information in the next few weeks. The site will be down for maintenance in late spring/early summer to complete site renovations. We'll have updates on the ILmarching Twitter Feed as well as the Facebook page when this happens. We've undertaken the task of adding old repertoires to the band pages for each year a band is in our database. We have an example posted below. If you have a list of repertoires (or even one), could you send them to us via the Band Submission Page (located on the left) or via email? We've had a few people email us already. We could also use old scores, pictures, whatever you have. Thanks!
