2018 Drum Corps Retrospective – DCI Finals

This was a strange one for me. For the first time since DCP started doing LIVE! From the Stands coverage of DCI Championships, I was actually covering the show FROM the stands. DCI and/or Lucas Oil Stadium determined that the press box was off limits due to “security reasons”. Regardless, I managed to cover the show, albeit from a very unique angle.
