DCI World Championship Finals

What an exciting summer in Drum Corps. I was able to see my boys in Green, The Cavaliers, at the end of June, and was able to spend a couple of days watching The Cadets rehearse their show prior to DCI's first Regional of the summer at the University of Minnesota.

It was truly shaping up to be one interesting battle for the top, and I must say, from DCI Minnesota all the way through tonight's Championships, I was on edge. I knew I wasn't going to be able to watch via the DCI Fan Network due to me flying, but once I was able to get to a hotel and/or get back to an internet connection, I would get the scores and recaps of that nights performance.

I was pretty upset when my computer wouldn't connect tonight in our crew lounge in Miami operations, but once I was able to, I quickly was able to get tonight's updates. I know how hard every member of every corps worked this summer, and I must first congratulate The Cadets for taking their 10th Championship!
