If you haven't read the article on their website, the crest is that of the Montague's.

So nice to be able find all these new looks here in one place without all the petty BS and bickering that takes place on DCP. Thanks to everyone who posted these.

From what I can tell in the grapevine, this is going to be a great year fro drum corps audiences. I can't wait. But I feel like I need to do this:

Hello,
My name is Tom, I'm a band director and I love drum corps. It's been over 9 months since my last corps show. :oops:

There, so cleansing. :lol:

Not a uniform change, but I'll add it here under the general category of DCI 2011. The Blue Stars are using scaffolding this summer...

Image

From a person working for the Blue Stars...
The guy who made this is the same one who made the magic crates last year. He is a master woodworker and darn good at just about everything else.

The platforms have large, rubber wheels that don't move unless pushed by force, so it will not roll away.

There are guard railings.

The bridges between scaffoldings are about 2 feet wide, and there are two of them along each other to make a total bridge 4 feet wide, with C-clamps clamping them together, so that when you walk on them they don't bend under the weight. They are solid.

They also connect the different sections together by straps, so that the sections don't wobble, sway, move apart, etc.

The corps has been using these props for 2 weeks without incident.

No single person is on the ramp for more than 1.5 mins.

No one runs up or down the ramps. Sometimes the march quickly off, but they are told to use caution.

They may even put down some kind of adhesive rubber to further the grip on the ramps.

Generally speaking, the ramp is as safe and secure as possible.

That doesn't mean that someone may not be blown off by a large wind gust, but seeing as how they've used them in 15-20mph winds already, we haven't had an issue - but Howard Wienstein, the music director, is protective of his kids, and so is Frank, the brass/visual guy. - if so much as a drop falls from the sky, he makes them stop. I'm sure if they feel the weather is unsafe to use the ramp, they will cut it out of the program that day.

They will also be getting backdrop canvasses to cover the ramp. I am not going to tell you what it will look like, you will have to come out and see for yourself! We haven't gotten them yet as far as I know. So for now I think they will just be using black tarp.
