  1. BOA 2018-19

    I was at Semis. The only shock for me was Jenks was in and not Rockford MI. Marian's show was good. And it was still good enough for 15th. I can't argue. I didn't think they had enough this year. Honestly thought they would be out last year. Next year is going to be a blood bath.
  2. OCT 27 results

    Remember my other post?1 LoL
  3. Time for a change

    saxyman it's not even the predictions. The main page hasn't been updated in a calendar year. Dan has done NOTHING with the front end of the site.
  4. BOA 2018-19

    I think we'll see O'Fallon in as the only IL band in finals.
  5. Catholic will be 3rd, maybe ,4th.
  6. Time for a change

    Apparently the solution is only Facebook, barely update information, and avoid my every inquiry about it.
  7. Time for a change

    I feel like Dan Balash has done an incredible job over the years taking over this site and running with it, however, I think it's time for him to pass the torch to someone ready to take this site over. We haven't had a main page post in over a year. We can still drive traffic here and people regularly check the site for schedules and show information. I've attempted to have private conversations and every time met with silence. Please let's work as a community to keep this site moving forward.
  8. TF South HS in Lansing, IL (South Suburbs) has an immediate opening for our Colorguard Director position for the fall as well as Winterguard seasons. We are seeking someone who is engaging, energetic, and will be a great team player within the TF South Band Staff. Competitive guard experience (at least competitive HS and/or Drum Corps) preferred. Anyone interested should email their resume and any questions to John Haney, Director of Bands. JHaney@tfd215.org
  9. Sad News

    It is with great sadness that I tell you all that Christopher Tedeschi, the band director of Crete Monee High School has passed away. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts.
  10. BOA Grand Nats

    Watching that final, it was pretty apparent there was a band that didn't belong in that group. The fact that Homestead was outside looking in was wrong. That said, easily the best semi-finals I've ever seen, and O'Fallon was outstanding. I hope they continue to improve, cause they would have been just as exciting to watch in that finals as others, if not more than at least one group.
