By Saturday night a new DCI World Champion will be crowned and the drum corps world will begin the long wait until next spring to satisfy their hunger for more DCI performances.

We've learned over the years that the smallest details matter in a DCI show and even the smallest gestures of one's own body could make or break a championship season.

Good luck to all the corps as they march towards the end of their season.
