DCI Broken Arrow 2010

Cadets 2010 on the fieldAs usual, it was extremely hot for this show and the drumlines did a good job finding shade where they could. Good idea considering 90% of the corps there had dark colored pants.

This show had nine corps: Music City, Legends, Teal Sound, Pioneer, Madison Scouts, Blue Knights, Boston Crusaders, The Cavaliers, and The Cadets. With this being a high school, it was much easier to find the warm-up spots as opposed to the Edmond show. The hardest group to find was Madison Scouts – they found a little strip of grass between two buildings that was about half the width of a football field. Other than that, I got most of the groups and I hope you enjoy what we’ve posted on YouTube.

Let’s get on with it:

Ring of Fire

Blue Devils warming up at the DCI show in Broken Arrow, OKA “Ring of Fire” in meteorology terms is a high pressure system stagnated with thunderstorms circling the pressure in a clockwise motion. This weather pattern is what the corps had to endure while making their way towards DCI Southwest in San Antonio. What started as stormy weather in Hutchinson, Kansas one day turned into blistering hot weather in Oklahoma. This set the stage for a day so hot, they moved the start time of the show back thirty minutes in hopes that it would bring cooler temperatures. No such luck. Nine corps endured the heat wave high of 103 in Broken Arrow to put on a performance and they did not disappoint.

3 Shows in 4 Days

3 Shows in 4 Days

With 3 shows in 4 days, 3 states and over 750 miles of asphalt…we saw just about every Top 12 corp minus SCV, Phantom Regiment, and Carolina Crown – one corp we even saw at all three shows (Blue Knights). So instead of doing three seperate posts about each show I decided to combine them into one giant review – corp by corp. We’ll tell you where we saw them, what we saw, and then give out a little video from the lot of each group. Granted we couldn’t get to all of them, but we sure tried!
So on to the review:

DCI Broken Arrow Review

DCI Broken ArrowBroken Arrow was the site for a great lineup of corps on July 30th and DrumlineBlog.com was there to take it all in. While normally the end of July hits 100+ temperatures, up to this point Broken Arrow hasn’t seen a day of triple digit temperatures all Summer and this day is no different. Low 90s and some storms that stayed just out of range, but cooled things off, provided a decent venue for the show hosted at the home of the 2006 BOA Grand National Champions – Broken Arrow High School. This is a great show for me, because it is quite literally in my backyard.
