    The most important thing to me in this entire world, is for this whole Corona thingie to go away and don't come back. I'm even over the fact that our band didn't get to go to Florida as planned and thus, no family vaca for the four of us. I'm going to be SUPER bummed if this upcoming marching season gets cancelled though. It's my daughter's senior year. #stayhome

    DCI 2020

    As of right now DCA has not changed any plans. However, their next meeting isn't until sometime in April. If they choose to press onward, it would be great to see DCA corps grow in participation with so many people without a place to march this summer now. DCE (Drum Corps Europe) has already cancelled their season as well so I guess we will see in the coming weeks what call DCA decides to make. Their championships are always Labor Day Weekend and events only happen on weekends so the consideration for it could be a lot different than everything DCI had to consider, at least not on the same scale. Worst case scenario, I did find something that could provide people with an option to still create something great this summer, worth checking out https://www.instagram.com/tv/B-QiT__pu0y/?igshid=4xtmu34doduk

    School Closings

    Indiana does something like it. I listened in on a conversation about possibly organizing some sort of concert band contest here in the state a few years back. Would be interesting to see.

    I really hope this doesn't damage the activity to the point of no return. I am curious to see if this helps groups like Pioneer get back into the activity.

    Corona Talk

    My wife is an assistant director at one. Their company is nationwide and they voluntarily shut down. The place she previously worked is still open. The place she works at now probably had 40% attendance last week. They shut down last Friday. To me it looks like the well-being of the families is more important than money. For where I work, we were made essential. Kentucky closed the new car showrooms (from what I read). I had to do an in-home delivery the other day--paperwork and all. Plus, 120 days deferment on payments with most lenders and an offer for 0% for 84 has been too good to pass up. I really don't understand the childcare thing at all.

    I see it all in scenarios at this point. -worse case scenario is this lasts way longer than we expect and bleeds into August. By which time schools will be delaying opening and programs have not been able to hold camps or teach music and are majorly set back. Would it be worth even having a season at that point? - next worse case is like you said. The last pandemic of this scale was the Spanish flu (100 years ago) and it became obsolete in summer and then went wide spread again in the fall. In which case everything would stop dead in its tracks and band season would most likely have to end mid season. - our next worse case is that colleges start retracting contracts on renting stadiums for large events. In which case the season would either go without a season closing or we’d have to get creative with SMBC. I don’t really see this happening though... Because I’m sure if colleges get the green light they’ll have football season. -best case scenario is everyone listens to their amazing governor (if you’re like us and lucky enough to have an amazing governor) We stay in. We pay our dues of social isolation and we’re back in swing mid to late May and Miss Rona leaves the building for good. (Fingers crossed.)

    I don’t ask this in a rude or interruptive way, but just one out of concern. Obviously we know relatively little about this virus so anything can happen. My best guess is that Kentucky can behave like we currently are and we can basically get back to business come June and July. To our friends across the rivers and our southern border, I cannot say the same.

    Well is it not real concern to voice? Some estimates say we’ll recover with an eventual second wave come September or October. It would simply pull a WGI and cancel mid-season with one month out. Money lost, programs suffering.

    Quite a way to introduce yourself to the room.

    I work in child care and I’m surprised to hear that.

    I am in Tennessee. There are many child care facilities that are still open as well.

    Hey Bill, your snide comment is 2 weeks late.
  22. Cantina_Bill

    SMBC 2020 Location

    Ha, y’all are concerned with the location? Some of the band kids are concerned if the season will exist in general.

    Corona Talk

    From what I am seeing, this disease seems to care not at all about your net worth. As for me, I would much rather be encountering the pandemic (at its peak) here than in Venezuela, North Korea, and other such nations that have overtly rejected capitalism. (Although they have so little engagement with the outside world, they might fare ok after all. I guess that's a tradeoff you can make...as for me, I will pass.) That said, if you are looking for a moment in time where capitalism is at its nadir in the United States, this may well be that time. The market economy has been largely frozen, save for certain sectors. Massive amounts of public funds at the federal, state, and local level across the entire country are being injected to sustain the population in substitution of the normally functioning mixed market economy. It's as close to an experiment with pure socialism as the U.S. has been in position to implement in my lifetime. Hell, we might even see some good old fashioned industry nationalization, just for good measure. So, we'll see how all of that goes.

    I'm so sad...was going to finals this year.

    DCI 2020

    I don't think it will. Medicial journals estimate that this will peak mid to late April. Issue with DCI is this has happened during spring training.

    It’s official.

    DCI 2020

    Announcement coming from DCI today supposedly. Not going to be one that will make us all fell better about the situation but probably the best decision. Lets all hope this doesn't trickle down to KMEA and BOA seasons for 2020. I realize this is small compared to concerns the country has right now but it sure would be nice to have that to look forward to in the fall! FINGERS CROSSED!

    What state are you in if I may ask? i recently moved back to Kentucky from Wisconsin after losing my job due to this and can attest that it is certainly different state to state.
