I officially hate all the Judges in the PPACC Percussion/Color Gaurd organization. Today was our first competition for Winter Percussion... We perform our show without any major kinks... The turd who runs the PA has this idea that every channel has to be muted before you can turn the thing on and off. My band director had unmuted the channels, but then the kid goes back and mutes them all. So I was the only one going throught he PA, except for the Synthesizer and vocals... 4000w, 16 channel mixer, 2 18'' subs, 2 2x15/2x8 cabs... pretty much all to my self. Rock! But ya. We took to long setting up and getting off. The gym had STEEP stairs leading into it, so it is really hard to get equipment on and off quickly... We got docked 8.5 points for time... We would have placed 2nd if it wasn't for the lousy gym design.... We had the best show. We had the only COMPLETE show. All of the pits had all their music, but not all of the drumlines did... Oh well. We still essentially beat everyone's arse, right?
