We feel it is important to provide you the latest information on the DVD production as we receive it.Unfortunately, the DVD production process has encountered numerous challenges. We were informed today that during production of our DVD project, the production company's metalizer machine broke down, which has unfortunately pushed backthe shipment of the DVD's to our office. The production company is doing everything possible to have the metalizer machine up and running to produce the quality product we pride ourselves in providing to our customers. The DCI office has been in continuous contact with the production company for updates and changes on the new anticipated arrival of the DVD's. We know the wait has been a long one, and the anticipation of arrival very high. On a positive note, we have had an opportunity to view the test DVD discs, and know you will be thrilledonce you have received the final product!We here at Drum Corps International realize the disappointment that this may bring to the many fans who will not have the 2001 DVD under the Christmas tree. It is our intention to provide the very best quality product and you, our valued customersdeserve the very best. We now anticipate shipping the 2001 DVD's right after Christmas.Again we want to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.THANK YOU for your patience and understanding!
