  1. Doug – I dodn’t have your number but I would like to know if you are interested in playing at Buhl Day again this year. Please let me know or 724-342-1771. Thank you. Tom Fowler

  2. Doug – You don’t happen to know Shawn Vondran, do you? He graduated from YSU in ’05 with a Masters in Instrumental Conducting, so I’m not sure; you may have missed him.

    At any rate… I love your blog! Great ideas and good insight! Thanks for what you bring to the table!


  3. Mr. Butchy-

    I’m a music ed student at the University of West Georgia. You’re blog is really cool. I came across it googling stuff about marching band. You graduated from Youngstown in 2002 with a degree in music? Do you know a guy named Boh?

  4. Hello Doug,
    I have seen your video of Buhl Park with the Phantom 3, it was very nice. I had a Phantom 2 and now have the Phantom 4 and am looking for a easy (if there is such a thing) editing app. I’m currently still struggling with GoPro Studio since I had the GoPro Hero 3 on the Phantom 2. I have also just received my FAA certification for remote pilot under part 107. I would really appreciate chatting with you sometime. I live in Hartford, OH. am also a graduate of YSU, and an OH. & PA. licensed real estate broker.

  5. Hi Tony –

    I was not a fan of the GoPro studio either. I just import from the sd card into iMovie on the mac and that works great. Not sure if you’re using mac or windows, though.
