The 2006 DCI rules proposals regarding the location of the sound board (and who operates it) and extending the boundary of the front sideline to 15 feet (originally proposed as 12 feet) were both unanimously approved by the DCI board of directors tonight in Pasadena. The proposed rule that would change the sheet that judges use to adjudicate color guard performances was withdrawn last night during the instructor's summit and was never voted on by the board. In other board of directors news, John Phillips was ratified as chief judge administrator for 2006, and George Oliviero and Gary Markham were ratified as educational directors for DCI for 2006.
