If you can't be in Bloomington, this event is your only way to see any of the 2008 DCI Championships. The championship telecast has been put on hiatus by DCI as they have withdrawn from their partnership with ESPN2.
Big, Loud & Live 5 will happen at various film theatres in the US on August 7. You will see the top 15 "World class" (that's Division I or Open class to you old timer) with some not-live clips of 5 more. So if you are inclined to travel south to see some drum corps, here's your chance. The closest theatre to Ontario is WILLIAMSVILLE, NY.
