geez, this thread has become a little[color=red]HEATED if you ask me. i think we should forget about hogan since this thread is about ncba open champs, and hogan is indeed, not attending. maybe a new thread for your own pleasure if you really wanna debate over hogan and fairfield? :( Anyway, we'll see what happens at finals cause its gonna be GREAT to watch all of the open lines finally compete head on! Goodluck fairfield foothill and vellejo! [/color]

I definetly agree, and it will be interesting to watch Fairfield next year when they lose their seniors.. The pit will fare okay but their strongest battery lines will be losing members.


The only seniors Fairfield will be losing are in the pit... soo hmm I guess their battery will be as strong as they are now eh?



Frankly the Fairfield battery doesn't impress me yet. I am sure they will grow into a stronger group in the next few years as longs as their egos don't get in the way. Their center snare has great chops but could use some humilty andsome technique. One of the girls on snare has great technique and a great attitude. The rest need to mature as drummers some more. Their tenors still seem to have the bad-marching curse that Fairfield can't escape and their basses can't hold a candle to the prevoius years' bass lines. I can't wait to see them next year though.

Don't get me wrong I was in the Fairfield bassline just two years ago and wish them the best of luck. I just wish you younger guys would stop for a second and remember who built your line. A little humilty goes a long way.

Fairfield alumni Class of 2002
FHS drumline 01 NCBA open class last place
FHS drumline 02 NCBA open class 1st place

Always look ahead but don't forget the past. -GR

Humility you say. As to those who have built up our program from the Vegas show 5 years ago, where our line wasn't even being considered Open class quality to a line who is competing nationally at WGI World Championships, I thank our incredible instructional staff. Former members had their chance to shine and then they move on. So move on. Putting down a very talented though young line doesnt get you anything. Seeing how Championships are this weekend, I hope all three schools max out their shows because this years NCBA championships will be intense. I have not seen either Vallejo nor Foothill's show because of the scheduling conflicts. Hopefully after we are done, we may get to go back in to see them.

Good Luck to all the lines.

My sincere appologies... I was misinformed... in a conversation with one of the drummers at Fairfield... he was explaining that LAST YEAR's mucis was all originally composed by Brian Aguilar and I was under the impression he was reffering to this year... gracious appologies!

Well this "drummer" should get their info correct. Since last years music was not originally composed either.

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (Sergei Rachmaninoff)

Intro, Variation 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, & 10
Variation 18
Variation 19, 21, 22, 23, & 24

Has anyone seen the WGI ranking that puts Fairfield as 3rd best in open class, in the nation? I don't see Vallejo Hogan or Foothill up there, I thinks its pretty obvious who will win.

Well, this is rekindling old thoughts..but electronic drumline (as was mentioned a few posts back) isn't what it's cut out to be. I think it's a mask as to what the group can do. When I see groups with 3 or 4 keyboards, a bass guitar and huge amps it just kills the drumline. I really like natural drumming. Also-look at the room for error with electronics.. there's always tech difficulties!

Well... fairfield did win... but i didnt think their performance was very good. They seemed to lack alot of energy, at least up until the end of their show. I gotta admit though.... it was a pretty good show.
