  2. Grand National Discussion

    This was a tough year for anyone that went with the TX bands there and the IN powerhouses. I had to check and double check about Broken Arrow, Tarpon Springs, Wando, Blue Springs, Castle and I'm sure I'm leaving someone out. It just felt like a lot of really good ones were missing.

    I'll start this thread early so we can all be thinking on it and have time to look at the bands performing that week and see where we end up.

    Looks like Marian was 17th after Semi's and the Fishers IN was the first band out in 13th, Lawrence Township in 14th, Harrison GA 15th and Park Vista FL in 16th. All of those bands were 4A. Marian widened the spread between themselves and North Hardin KY from a BOA regional earlier in the year, NH 84.95, MC 86.8. In prelims Marian had a 84.725 and Miamisburg OH had 86.2, Miamisburg had 84.02 in Semi's

    Way to go Texas. I had Marian winning class but wasn't sure about finals. I did like how they performed. Vandergrift I predict will take it all , after that is anyones game. Kentucky bands did way better than I expected. I thought Bourbon Co would win class A, Beechwood surprised me. North Hardin I had in 2nd in AA behind Marian doing a flip flop from BOA regionals. Even though Marian didn't make finals, at least they're performing tonight. I would almost place a bet that next year they are back in finals.

  14. Traditional Uniforms VS Costumes

    What's your preference? I prefer the traditional uniform but am ok with how some groups do such as Lincoln-way the last couple years where their top may be different. If you look at vids that's how Flower Mound from TX has also done. I like the Blue Devils uniform this year until they took the shako off, I prefer that something is on the band or corp members head to lengthen their body.

  18. My picks for finals in random order, kind of guessing and kind of not Castle IN Penn IN Blue Springs MO Avon IN Carmel IN O'Fallon IL Homestead IN Marian IL Fishers?? IN Grain Valley MO North Hardin KY Lincoln Way IL Blue Springs South MO 14th spot ?? I think Blue Springs or Avon will win It would be great if Lafayette or Madison Central KY would compete more in BOA events. Lafayette participated in the TN Regional and won Paul Lawrence Dunbar KY is rebuilding, I think there were some changes in their music program

    I don't, I've not seen any video of them other than the BOA Louisville Regional. There was a lot that could be added to that show. I had just seen Avon beat them, I think, last weekend
