George Hopkins was everything BUT respectful. The way he bowed to the crowd and smiled to them as they were booing............complete cockyness.


There was a right way and wrong way to handle his completely valid complaint. He did it the absolute wrong way. Whether he was getting booed or not - he should have totally ignored the crowd - he was also VERY rude on the interview on the ground with the commentator. He is a 100% jerk and should be fired by YEA. He is anything but a class act - and while his argument held merit - and I agree the penalty should have been removed since it was a mistake by DCI - he should have been more mature and classy with the way he handled himself. Musicians look to members and staff of drum corps as idols and examples to follow if they are going to be in charge of competitive bands, and I for one, don't think his example is anything anyone should follow. His distorted view on what drum corps should be, mixed in with his horrible attitude do not allow for a healthy addition to the activity.

Ok, so for all intensive purposes, we're looking at a three horse race for first (between BD, Cadets, and Cavies). Based on the season thus far, I bet we'll see the top three in finals look pretty much the same way it looks in this lineup.


Regardless, Cavies and Phantom should be happy if they get 3rd and 4th. That's no small feat.

What a great week of corps!!!


I really have to agree with the outcome in all divisions for the most part.


BD and Cadets really could have easily switch places...it really was close. I think the demand and execution in BD's show put them over the top. WHAT A HORNLINE...always excellent and last night was no exception!!


I probably would have put PR in front of Cavies. While Cavies have a huge demand on the performer for just the physical side of the visual, they were not quite as 'on' visually as it could have been. What a great year for them, though, considering how young the hornline was this season.


Colts represented the Midwest very well this year. Highest score for them, I believe or at least amoung one of the highest. They were very excited to pass up the Glassmen in Finals.


A part of me feels bad for The Academy...really great organization and a great corps. Better then Spirit and Glassmen, imho...just need to fix their guard situation, I guess and they could be a solid finalist next season.


Same goes for Div 2/3! Great performances and really close competition this year. Really exciting to see Dutch Boy in the top of the ranks again!


While I HATED the Rose Bowl for many reasons, it was a great trip. No sence in complaining about the venue and its people since we'll probably never be there again....well, at least for a really long time LOL




P.S. In regard to Hopkins and the hash marks...he was right on in the decision that he made. And once the facts were out, I supported him even more. If you are a Cadet fan or not...I think all would agree it was the right thing to do. On the other hand, the way he handled the crowd could have been viewed in may different ways. I seriously don't think he was trying to be disrespectful, but more making light of the "booing" situation. Push someones buttons and they push right back. Its really not a big deal.

Myself and another old member of these forums ended up marching against each other once again.


There's too much to tackle here and all I have to say is that if you really, really want to know about the small details, march drum corps. It's a truly amazing experience. There is NOTHING AT ALL IN THE WORLD that can compare to the bond that drum corps creates.


LWMK '02-'06

Red Team '07-Forever


PS. The other guy I'm talking about graduated Prospect and marched Glassmen...I hope there's no hard feelings (if Dave ever checks this board anymore...God knows I barely do).

I will say this...


Sitting in the stands, hearing and watching the cavies show... I was VERY dissapointed with their placement above not only Phantom, but SCV as well. Honestly, even crown should have passed them.


I have no ill will towards the Cavaliers, in fact, I personally had lunch with Jeff about 3 and a half months ago just before he and the corps came and performed for free at a camp I'm a counselor at. But honestly... with the exception of their entire Age Out Bass Drum Line... I was not impressed with the sound from the field.


Phantom on the other hand... Wow WAY TO GO!!! Finished behind Cadets and Devs where they belonged due to content, but performance wise, only second musically to Devils. Wow Seriously... I was very pleased to see the Regiment so strong.


Cadets... Musically, wow... but DCI IS NOT BOA Please don't give me show long commentary... The best part of their finals show (my third time seeing them that week) was the guy that yelled out SHUT UP AND PLAY MUSIC If they follow his advice, the drum corps fans will return... Until then... The Drum Corps Fans will stick with Cavies, Devs, and Regiment


SCV - Yeah, classic SCV. Bring back the 2004 show, starting earlier in the season, and they will wreck =)


Crown - Very fun show, Solid Drumline


Bluecoats - Awesome show, WAAAAYYYY Underperformed... VERY MAJOR flaws on the field in semis... they deserved the finals placement


As for the bottom of the top 12... sadly, i have to say I missed their shows all three nights... Being a caption head on a div III staff is a busy time.



As for div II/III

Jersey Serf got Screwed!!


Memphis Sound - Easy Show, very well performed... Just ask the Raiders, they blatenly admit this is how they won thier titles.


Raiders - they marched as many as Revolution did at 79, and were a blast to watch. Not to mention, after having housed with them multiple sites, amazing staff and awesome kids... Just ask them about the Trap Door


Pasadena Rose Bowl - HATED IT... WTF is with one entrance per seating section on only 1 level. I 3 of the first 5 finals performances to standing in line to get in the friggin stadium. I'm sorry,having mountains in the background isn't worth the cluster of getting in and out... if you go to get a drink mid show, expect to miss two corps...


I sincerely hope that after Indy, we don't do a Cali show ever again... Not because cali is a bad location, but 115 degree heat in AZ is BRUTAL... One of the ladies in a AZ gas station put it best in, I fee sorry for you kids in this Bit@hslapping heat... No words I can say will ever compare. Bakersfield was hot as ever...


Pasadena is great so cal is great, but all the roads leading there are nothing but terrible territory for all the midwest and east coast corps
