  1. Scores for 10/25

    I though Edward Scissorhands was in there too Congrats to Dunlap btw ahh okay thanks
  2. Scores for 10/25

    I was up in the press box during Dunlap's show. Since we were so high up I couldn't really hear much. Partially due to a lot of people talking. I thought I could hear the music from Batman and Bettlejuice. (which I really like Beetlejuice so I was excited for that) I really liked the guard uniforms too. I wish I could see their show again but sadly I don't think I'll get the chance to do so. wow....i wanted to start this off with a question but totally never got to it. haha okay...what was Dunlap's show? like, the musical selections and what not.
  3. Scores for 10/25

    I cant tell if this is serious or sarcastic??!! There was quite the gap between Morton and Dunlap at ISU finals if I remember right. I'm going off of what I was told a few hours ago so my info could be wrong. Yes, I know, the systems are TOTALLY different at the two shows. But still.... Ya never know though. Dunlap may end up becoming the next major competition for a lot of groups in the are....kinda like Morton starting back in '05. I think it would be exciting to see another really good and strong band go up against Morton. I remember way back when I started marching and it was usually between us and IVC. I was always really anxious to hear scores and placements and see if we had gotten any closer to them or beat them in anything. Nothing wrong with some friendly competition....It's one of the things that makes this activity so much fun. )
  4. 2008 Illini Marching Band Festival

    HAHA! I remember that too. In fact, I was at ISU watching finals when it happened. I've been drenched from rain before but never like that. It was crazy, intense, miserable, cold...and so much fun.
  5. Scores for 10/18

    I think this is where people are making their BOA comments....so...here goes... Alright...Morton....WOW!!!!!! I'm still pumped about you guys making finals. I remember two seasons ago when we got back into ISU finals after however many years.....so I can imagine the excitement you all have or that it's got to be 50 times bigger! I will be honest, when they were reading scores and stuff I didn't think Morton would get called as going to finals. Dunno....I think it was just the thought of "it's a supper regional...lot's of really good groups here...." But hey! I was wrong and I'm sure glad I was. Being a vet and coming back to hear you guys get called in and then watching the show TOTALLY made my week. I'm excited and proud of all of you and it's great getting to see my home band, friends, and younger brother get to have the chance to do this. I love the show this year too. I will admit, I'm a little jealous that I didn't get to march it cuz it looks like it's so much fun. Keep up the good work, don't let up, and continue having fun with this. Can't wait to see it again at U of I.....I might even try to make it to the Indy regional. I loved watching all the other groups too.....I think Prospect had to be my other favorite. Blue Springs from MO was really good too. I was in the front row on the right 45 so I got all the shows full force and it was absolutly amazing! Keep it up everyone....can't wait for grand nationals.
  6. Scores for 9/27

    I did not get to see many shows at Geneseo. I did hear Galseburg. LOVED the music. Even though Geneseo did not compete I did enjoy their show. Hopefully I get to see more at the next show I'm at.
  7. Shows for 2008

    I've just seen the first little bit of it. I can't wait to see the entire production. I'm hoping they'll have the whole thing on the field for their home show.
  8. ISU 2008

    I totally agree. Something legit would be very nice. If I had it my way, I'd have the top 5 or 10 bands in each state go onto a national semi, quarter, and finals competition. That way we could end the BOA debate as well. That hasn't been on here as far as I know but I've heard it before. It's pretty much the same as the state one. People use the same arguments but it's BOA instead. That's just my thoughts on it.
  9. ISU 2008

    This is one of those never-ending debates
  10. ISU 2008

    The state finals competition at ISU
  11. ISU 2008

    No - If Prospect wins ISU and U of I - they can not lay claim to be #1 in IL. Have you checked out Marian's track record at Grand Nationals? When the season is all said and done - no one is better than Marian - and only Lake Park was one year here and there when Snoeck was director. Marian has the best marching band in IL, hands down. That is difficult to argue with. Their past record does speak for itself! I agree with you in saying that Marion has a great band. The way I see it, though, is that whoever got first in state is the #1 band until someone takes that title away from them. But that's just how I see it. I'm sure everyone has their own thoughts on it.
  12. ISU 2008

    Yeah. When did they go back to 2A? I remember them being in our class when I marched and then they weren't either my senior year or the year after. Don't remember which.
  13. ISU 2008

    They were in 1A last year. When did IVC get put back into 2A?
  14. Shows for 2008

    I agree. I don't know much about the book. Just the basic storyline and what not and I still really enjoyed what I saw.
  15. Shows for 2008

    I've only seen the first little bit of what Morton has on the field and LOVE IT!!!!! Makes me kinda bummed that I graduated cuz it would be an awesome show to march.
