    Job Board 2018

    And that kind of surprises me, because it was the exact opposite where I went to school. Our MS director was always involved at the high school especially the marching band. Heck, my first year of marching band she was running all of it the whole time when the HS director was out for colon cancer. Even today, the current MS director there is still involved.

    DCI KY

    On the argument of G horns versus Bb/F horns, I have marched both. Each have different qualities to them. Bb/F horns are more common and easier to get tuned across an ensemble, however the metal used for them is not as thick so it's a bit more susceptible to damage. G horns are an extreme rarity these days. You really only see them in less than a handful of DCA corps and are primarily used by alumni corps (not the ones that show at DCI, the ones that are active year round and every year). Probably the most well known corps that still uses G horns is the Marines Drum & Bugle Corps and even then they have custom 2 valve horns made for them by Kanstul. G horns are much more difficult to tune, but if you get it right they resonate very powerfully. The metal is much thicker in G horns which is why their intonation and resonance is different. I have marched and listened to good groups playing both in person. If you have musicians who know how to approach G horns correctly, they will have more power than any Bb/F hornline ever could.

    BOA Sheets: Friend or Foe?

    Oh I'm not complaining about it. I think it will give directors and staff members of programs a better idea where they stand without having to travel and spend money for a BOA regional. That's if they implement the sheets correctly though.

    2019 uniforms

    That's was really all they could get together on such short notice. The marching band didn't have enough uniforms for everyone because of the growth. They are inching closer to the 300 mark, I'd love to see it happen this year.

    If we are using BOA sheets and the judges follow what's on them to score, everyone can expect much lower scores overall this year.

    BOA Sheets: Friend or Foe?

    Honestly though a 60/40 difference in whatever the scoring system favors is not that big of a difference anyway.

    BOA Sheets: Friend or Foe?

    I get that, but a clean show doesn't always mean it's enjoyable to watch in terms of grabbing my attention and keeping me interested from start to finish. I've watched shows that are clean as can be but also be very boring and not exciting to watch. That's just what appeals to me personally though.

    BOA Sheets: Friend or Foe?

    I have to disagree, because the BOA sheets are very descriptive in terms of what the judge for that caption should be paying attention to as well as my reference to my comment about effect based scoring. That can be a big difference in the bands' scores especially in this state where its been performance based scoring since 1986.

    BOA Sheets: Friend or Foe?

    Well since we are moving to BOA sheets, one would think that we are moving to effect based scoring over performance based scoring. That would definitely change how some bands score and place, even the bands that have been on top for years.

    But when downvotes become a form of personal attacks 🤷🏻‍♂️ Sorry that other forums disagree with how they run it and this is the only one that uses them.

    So people picking at each other for having an opinion other than their own over a rumor that is unconfirmed by anyone associated with that program publicly on this forum, and when a person calls it out a flood of downvotes occur, is tame? Gotcha, just making sure I understand. And I've been here a long time too and seen and heard everything almost. Yes, I've said some very unpopular things once upon a time, but I at least tried to grow from those learning opportunities to make better informed comments based on facts. I honestly don't care who or how many people put a downvote on any of my posts because the reason for them existing is pointless and this is the only marching arts forum that I am a member on that uses them because they are seen as immature and toxic tools.

    This nonsense argument over nonconfirmed rumors and picking at each other because someone has a different opinion that your own is exactly why this forum has become an absolute toxic piece of garbage.
