It's one of the largest shows before San Antonio, and the DCI Menomonie event lived up to all of our expectations and then some. Let's take a look back at the results and review our Points Of Focus and see if things panned out as we predicted.

Looking over the recaps, the biggest surprise is Crossmen's visual program beating both Blue Stars AND Cadets in the Visual Analysis and Guard subcaptions. This pushed Crossmen into 4th in overall Visual, with Blue Stars taking 3rd and Cadets 5th. The only other major caption score which defied the overall results was, not surprisingly, Santa Clara Vanguard's percussion taking top honors by half a point over Bluecoats.

Points Of Focus

  • Word on the street is that Crossmen have a new ending for this weekend.
    Crossmen did indeed have a strong new ending to their show, adding to the fierceness of the Valkyrie program. This being modern drum corps, however, is this the FINAL edition of their show's closer?
  • Just before their trip to the Midwest, Santa Clara Vanguard was beaten for the first time since early in the 2018 season by the Blue Devils.
    As of this weekend, SCV is now beaten by two blue corps, as the Bluecoats swept all three shows in Illinois and Wisconsin, including tonight by almost a point.
  • Open Class corps make 2019 debut on FloMarching starting at 5:04 PM CT—Colt Cadets, River City Rhythm, and Legends.
    And what a debut! As of tonight, Legends has a strong chance to make World Class Semifinals, not to mention medal and possibly win Open Class Championships. River City Rhythm also came out swinging tonight, and the Colt Cadets showed that the future of drum corps in Dubuque is still very strong indeed.
