**** DCA/DCI All-Age Corps - Based on Newest Score ****About a third of the All Age corps debuted this weekend, including the defending champion Reading Buccaneers. Although it is difficult to compare numbers across different shows, as the judges themselves are different, the scoring mechanisms is the same so there is at least an argument the corps within a point or two of each other are right in the hunt. Minnesota Brass proved this weekend the rumors were true, and hype hype credible.

I am at work all day, and this evening some much needed R&R, along with a bunch of reading to catch up on. Then, when the Supremes settle our US Senate race there will be much to analyze.
And yes, I need a nap!
