I have always wondered, why do instructors change drill. I think our drill is ok. Well, now thinking about it, our isn't so great. But why though, just why? Is it because of the judges. It probably is. *SIGHS* Other than that, our instructors are putting in this type of jay-toss. Also, for those who are on price, why can Brian just have his solo. Why does it have to be a duo?

ok the reason instructors change drill is because it might not flow right or it may not appease to the judges. thats why the do the drill changes and trust me they are probably just as excited about it as you are. i mean they already wrote the drill once and it takes alot of effort.

Be careful kiddo. Instructors post here too, and parents.

I understand what you mean; drill changes can be a pain. We’ve been writing and rewriting the same spot of our show for the past couple of weeks. But I’d rather make the changes and score better than keep doing the same thing and never improve. Besides it makes it a challenge to never do the same show twice. hehe

good one. :D
and yeah, overall the drill usually does effect how the show looks and what impression it gives off, so if it doesn't look right, then it should be changed...just be patient. in the end it will all be right.

I think instructors change drill to make it more crowd and judge pleasing.

I don't mind them changing drill, as long as it's not major.

Note: I'm not trying to diss instructors either, they're good people and work for our best.

wow i wouldnt be complaining. You guys haven't changed very much drill at all. If this is bad, you would have died if you were on the Price guard last year. Almost every week they changed the drill for the whole song. It was crazy. You guys have a much better plan and it is more thought out this year. That is why you are doing so well, so just take the changes and be happy to be doing good

to all price kids: yah your instuctors may change you drill and/or work a lot, but you gotta understand that it's all for the better. i know that this is what you're prolly hearing from everyone, but you just have to kno that that's colorguard. nothing ever stays the same. so if you don't take change well, then you're going down.:flush: so don't complain you guys, be happy that you guys have great instructors that are willing to help you and make you're show better so that you score better. good luck you guys! :P

Drill is changed for a reason. Your instructors change the drill to make the show better. Our drill changed just thursday, for about a third of the show, but I am glad because now it will look more exciting and appealing to the audience. Remember that your instructors want to help you. It may not always seem like it but the reason they are there is to make you better. That's what they get paid for, remember?

our guard rarely makes it one show in a whole season with everyone there, so we are constanly changing, altering or relearning drill. I've filled in as TWO of our guys on our guard in their forms...craaazy.

I remember what they're paid for. My mom reminds me about the money almost every day :P .

Seriously... I'm too paranoid to say anything bad about my instructors because I know they're on here, but I don't really have anything bad to say about them... except when they walk on our floor with their shoes on. I roll around on that! Come on!!! :wink:
