It’s full of show coverage, features and a photo of every DCI World Class and Open Class corps fielding this season (with the exception of Music City because we didn’t have any photos by press time, our apologies) — plus most of the all-age corps . . . not to mention ALL the junior, all-age and foreign scores for shows that have been held since the July issue when to press on June 25. There is a special one-page supplement to the issue that has the latest scores from Wednesday, July 29, through Sunday, August 2, also available at the booth.
