  1. Looking Ahead to 2021

    Geneseo: September 25th Monticello: September 18th
  2. Looking Ahead to 2021

    Whole bunch of Chicago-area dates, which I think is the end of the Chicago area shows. In addition, Downers Grove South is exploring a one year hiatus from a prelims/finals format to stay consistent with the neighboring Chicago-area shows. I think Lake Park may be doing the same, which would leave Morton and ISU as the only prelims/finals shows in the state. September 18th: Victor J. Andrew Plainfield South October 9th: Providence Catholic October 10th: Marengo October 16th: Naperville Central October 17th: Sandwich

    Looks like Lincoln-Way is doing Clarksville September 25th and that is it for regionals. Based on what I've pulled off of calendars thus far...keep in mind, these are all tentative, with a good amount of bands not posting plans yet. Clarksville: Lincoln-Way St. Louis: Normal, Collinsville, Granite City (they also have the old date of U of I on their schedule, so there's a conflict there.) Indianapolis: Lake Park, Mahomet-Seymour, Plainfield North (planning on ISU as well) Grand Nationals: Danville, Collinsville, Morton (maybe)
