DCI Central Indiana is over and the fans, including the many attendees of the Music For All Summer Symposium, are home and reliving their experiences in their memories. The night saw seven strong World Class corps compete, some of whom with a few days of rehearsal under their belt for cleaning and design improvements. We at FloMarching had three questions about DCI Central Indiana when we were previewing this show. Let’s revisit them and see what answers were presented to us.

Where will the cards fall for Madison Scouts, Spirit of Atlanta, Colts, and Phantom Regiment?

If the season were to end now, only one of these corps would make it into the Top 12 for 2019. Spirit of Atlanta is making a strong case for returning to Saturday night, but it would be at the expense of Phantom Regiment, who would miss out on Finals for the first time since 1973 when they placed 14th. Phantom’s percussion is leading the charge to stay in the hunt. This may be a battle right up until DCI Semifinals in August.

Meanwhile, don’t count out the Colts. While they were just over a point behind Phantom last night, Iowa’s ambassadors of music did finish ahead of PR in visual. Larger margins have vanished between groups during previous seasons, so a late run by the corps from Dubuque is not out of the question.

Finally, the Scouts are still working to bring their show, Majestic, up to the same level as the other corps mentioned above. The percussion section is already making some waves, beating Crossmen last night by a tenth. While we are about to enter July, there is still time for Madison to hit the afterburners and move up in the standings.

Will the Crossmen/Blue Stars battle continue into 2019?

While last night’s two point spread between Blue Stars and Crossmen isn’t the largest of the season, Crossmen’s Valkyrie has yet to come up with an answer for Blue Stars’ Call of the Wild. A significant portion of that gap can be found in two captions: Visual Analysis, which Blue Stars leads by 1.2 points, and Music Percussion, which Blue Stars leads by 1.4 points. Note that these caption scores are divided by two, so the overall gap when you combine the two scores is 1.3 points. If Crossmen can close the distance in those two captions, that will go a long way towards catching up to Blue Stars and resuming their feud.

How high can Carolina Crown push their score?

76.050 is pretty high for June 28th, though this score currently has Crown in 4th overall. Since Crown was the only corps in their competitive bracket at Central Indiana, however, straight score comparisons don’t tell the real story. What will happen when Carolina Crown matches up with Boston, whom they haven’t faced off with since the 24th, or Bluecoats, whom Crown hasn’t seen since the first show? The Race For 80 is still on and Carolina Crown is still in the thick of the pack to get there.
