My drumline starts practicing in late december we're not independent though... October is still marching band season.
maybe there should be a circuits section of the page, wgi, mepa, PAS... i think i may add it
Does anyone else refer to this as Winter Percussion? Might want to post a redirect for that... PhirePhly 23:23, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
- I do. I think its an older term though. At Warsaw, we had T-shirts with mallets arranged in the snowflake and it said "Warsaw Winter Percussion". I think most contests back then referred to it as Winter Percussion. That was back in the early 90s when they had their 3-peat of championships. I don't know when the season runs now but typically we'd start in the middle of November and go until January or February. The percussion competition at WGI seemed to just be starting back then too. -- Suso 01:10, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Short on history
This page really lacks historical information. It makes it sound like WGI was the first place to have these types of competitions. And it started almost 30 years ago back in the 1979 I think.Woot Rythem X rules. Check out there 2010 show "Inspired". I'm not sure what the state of things are now, but there was a big high school up in northern Chicago that held a competition at the end of the season that was considered by many to be the real national championships. Nearly every drumline went there. I think this is where they started the activity because in 1994 they had some kind of ceremony for the 15th anniversary talking about the history and who started the idea. Also, BOA had (maybe they still do) a competition that was part of grand nationals weekend that took place on the Friday before the band finals. Although you could call yourself a national champion percussion ensemble if you won that BOA competition (which Warsaw did three times in a row), its not really fair to say so because the one in Chicago had a more complete turnout (and Warsaw only won that one in 1994). I think someone with more knowledge of this really needs to contribute to this article. -- Suso 01:21, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Articles on Specific Groups?
Perhaps we should begin adding articles on specific, established, world class groups. If articles exist for the top drum and bugle corps, why not for the top indoor lines? Yally (talk) 06:44, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Indoor Percussion Ensemble history defect
This is the first time I have commented on a wikipedia article, and I am not familiar with the proper procedure for handling this. I am asking for help to rectify a defect I noticed in this article -- one that is at minimum an error, and at most hoaxing vandalism.
The article used to state that Indoor Percussion Ensemble began in 1976 at Ricori High School. As a result of changes made by user 126.96.36.199 on 13 April 2013, the article now says 'Indoor percussion (Drumline) began in 1969 at the Dassel-Cokato High School...'. This is highly questionable, because Dassel-Cokato High School did not even exist until 1972, according to these sources:
