Hello I am new to this site and I have only been following DCI for about 3 years and my question has to do with scoring. I am curious how can the blue devils score so high when their show is incomplete? Maybe I am wrong but I was under the assumption that the tarp they are using for their show has been stolen and with that being the case how can their visual and general effect be climbing every show. I have the upmost respect for all the members of all the corps and all the hard work they put into their shows and it just seems that the judging is somewhat biased towards the blue devils. I may be way off and I'm sure the BD fans are not gonna agree with this and I am not trying to upset anyone I was just wondering how this is possible. Thanks for any help

"There are three parts to GE, the intellectual, the aesthetic, and the emotional."

So I think GE is somewhat subjective, based on this description from DCI. I do not think the absence of the BD tarp you are referring to will impact scoring all that much. I saw the show on July 22nd. Many of the judging categories are unaffected by the presence of a tarp at all ( like music analysis for example or visual proficiency), and you would expect a hard working corps like BD to improve throughout the season.

I am not a big BD fan, but their drumline is very good this year and their hornline isn't too shabby either. They just get a lot of talent every year. It looks like they are running third this year but it is hard to tell what may happen over the next week.
