    Haha, alright.  Well, in the novel Animal Farm, the main concept at the end of the book is that “All animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others.”  In this regards, throughout history, BAC has kinda gotten the short end of the stick with, particularly, the judging aspect of DCI.  It began to really get rolling with the infamous baby powder of 2013.  It was used at a major regional, and the DCI Rule Book states that if no penalty is given at a major regional, it cannot be given at Lucas Oil.  If it was to be an issue, they should have told BAC about it before Prelims, kinda like with Bluecoats last year when our balloons flew away at the Minnesota regional, they told us if that was to happen at a dome, we would be issued a penalty.  Hence why they changed to balloons on sticks.  At prelims, BAC last year got a 2 point penalty from using the baby powder, and when the rule book was brought up in critique, it was lowered to a point, but not gotten rid of.

    So after that, BAC felt a little shafted.  I would too honestly.  So this year, they settled on the Animal Farm theme.  Originally, the show was just a call out on the concept of the G7 (aka, the ToC corps).   The entirety of ToC is fitting into the “All corps are created equal, but some are more equal than others.”  They get better housing sites, bigger stadiums, and with ToC, more shows in huge stadiums and more people get to see them. So, these “top 7” corps are privileged in comparison to the other corps. That was basically the original call out.

    Until semi’s happened. The colorguard judge placed the BACCG in 13th place, and it dropped us to a 17.2, something we didn’t get for months.  When confronted, the judge admitted to “messing up” his score sheet, but said that he refuses to fix his scores, messing up multiple groups that performed before the intermission.  AKA, all the groups that aren’t a member of the G7.  So, once that happened, then the podiums got painted, the baby powder got added, and the DCI flags came out.  None of that was supposed to happen.  BAC’s organization, Inspire Arts & Music, has a good relationship with DCI because they were working on the Street Beat 5K together, and because of the 5K, out Board of Directors told the corps the DCI flags were to not be used.  When they let us after the judging mess up, they emphasized it was a response on the judging prejudice in the activity, not a attack on DCI as an entire organization.

    I hope that was extensive enough!!
