Yes, drum corps is a very big family. Sure, there's corps that don't like each other, but outside of competition, it's awesome what the community is like.

Right on. Let the kids have some fun and not get into too much trouble. Love it!

I believe the corps get along, for the most part. Far different from competing athletic teams. . .

Yes, the encores this week for Phantom have been awesome in light of what happened. The NY Skyliners lost all their equipment too in an awful accident, luckily no fatalities. Fusion Core is actually donating 100% of their souvie sales tonight to the Skyliners to help them start the comeback. Sky was supposed to perform in Clifton, NJ tonight, but unfortunately cannot.

Sad what happened to Phantom recently. Heard the encore last night was really special. I know a few low brass auditioning for Cavaliers next year.

How ironic... the year they did the Illuminations music, lol. Good year.

There's a big difference between Jr. and Sr. corps. Junior, these kids go full out all day everyday. Senior, just as fun but it's the weekend warrior circuit! Then there's Alumni corps. While most don't do field shows, they still know how to entertain and blow the crowd away. I've always been a SCV, Cavalier and Phantom Regiment fan for DCI. I'll always be a Thunderbird and Buccaneer, no matter where in the world I am.

With 20 years, then you can appreciate a first timer going to a competition and seeing Tradition and wondering what all the hype is about. Then, each Championship Corp helped you understand a little more each performance. That was me 6 years ago. If one only goes to an open class, you will be, well, disapointed. My favorite last year was Carolina Crown

I've been involved with drum corps the last 20 years... I'm aware of who won, lol.

My daughter's roommate is playing with Tradition this year. My daughter is a clarinet player (all state, National Band). Bloooooooooo won this year, with Crown placing second

I'm from the UK, we don't have this kind of stuff here lol forgive me.

If you want to get involved, Cincinnati Tradition is a DCA (Senior Corps) Class A corps. They're actually the defending Class A champions.
