SMKDU Sports Day Marching Competition '08

SL(Y)180 won 3rd place again this year for the fourth time in a row since 2005.

Guess who won 1st and 2nd place this year....

YOU'VE GUESSED CORRECT!!! It's PKBM in 1st place and Police Cadet in 2nd.

I'm still waiting for my dear juniors to breach into the top 2, but then it got me thinking:
"The judges in our annual marching competition are of officers from PKBM and Police Cadet, or so I'm told..."
If that is true, then there is a high possibility that the judging has and always been biase. Well, we all knew that since a long time ago, I don't even remember when is the last time any other uniform bodies were in the top 2.

Sad isn't it? I was told that even the Scouts and St. Johns did great. For the Scouts, I am not surprise, they have always been superb in their foot drills. And I'm happy to see how far the St. Johns' have progress since the last time I saw them.

But the most creative formation would have to be PBSM's formation (and I'm stating this as an Art&Design student, not as a former member). I'm proud to see them trying out new styles and executing it boldly. I've one advice thought for them though, should any of my juniors read this:

"I don't know if any of you realise this, but we always have one weakness within our marching - IT'S VERY DRAGGY!!! I'd have to wait for a period of time before the next interesting part appears, there's no constant flow of energy."

With all that being said and done, I believe that the true first place starts from 3rd. Let the top 2 battle among themselves. Until the judging becomes fair, the top 2 place seems pointless.


Ok. Thank you.
