Marching By The Numbers
Bands of America
That is the square footage of a football field. The field measures 100 yards from goal line to goal line and 53 yards 1 foot from side line to side line.
Again, marching a perfect 8:5 step size, if you started on the front side line and marched to the back it would take you just over 85 steps.
If you laid a grid made of points that were 22.5 inches apart, there would be just over 13,652 points on the field.
It's not uncommon for DCI groups to have 150-200 dots for each show. If you had 135 members on the field marching with 150 dots, that means there will be a total of 20,250 coordinates memorized for a 12 minute show.
