    Oh shit, I didn't realize Leander had such a good program. Looks like i'm going to have to see Leander, Vista Ridge, and Round Rock
  2. ISU Results

    Spoken like someone who was very far from the actual situation in that district. Lots of old men yelling at clouds in this thread. Go take it up with PCEP.
  3. ISU Results

    So you would rather their be 2-3 LW bands finishing in the top ten every year. And honestly, the ROI from a competitive standpoint is minimal. Lincoln-Way East has spent its entirely history near the top of ISU. So unless you're from Marian Catholic, Lake Park, or Prospect, who really have all the resources to compete with LW anyway, there's really no room to complain. Two or three finalist bands wouldn't have been in if LW were 3 or 4 bands. The fact is, it's financially irresponsible for a district to field 3-4 marching bands if they can't afford it.
  4. BOA Grand National Predictions

    Pretty awesome stuff. 5 and 6 are neighboring towns in Texas. Between them and nearby Round Rock high school, the north suburbs of Austin are quite a treat during band season.
  5. Developing: Lincoln-Way North to Close

    Just for bookkeeping purposes, it's worth noting the only two schools that were seriously considered for closing were Lincoln-Way North and Lincoln-Way Central.
  6. Developing: Lincoln-Way North to Close

    Don't post here much, but it's worth mentioning LW BOE has voted to close Lincoln-Way North. I feel for the families of the students and staff of that fine school.
  7. Shows for the weekend of September 21, 2013

    How are these classes determined? It's strange to see LWC and LWE in lower classes than Marian.
  8. New Uniforms

    Not sure how I feel about these. They have been doing this type of thing forever. I don't know if they ever plan to completely replace their actual uniform or not.
  9. 2013 Director Changes

  10. Scores for the weekend of October 27, 2012

    More disappointment from Lincoln-Way Central
  11. Shows for the weekend of September 15, 2012

    Peter Griffin (Elmhurst College, formerly of U of I), Dr. Stephen Steele (ISU), Dave Morrison (retired, Prospect), Richard Watkins (retired, Mahomet-Seymour), George York (retired, Normal Unit 5 Schools), Dan Swallow (Guard), Genaro Cantu (Percussion). I like that panel a lot.
  12. 2012 Contest Dates

    Good! Even better, they save $500 in registration fees. (I still can't believe GSL is $1,000...) Random question: What's the cheapest show in Illinois to participate in? There's a show in South Carolina that charges bands a ridiculously small $50-and they have a top of the line panel too. $1000?!
  13. LWE Director Out

    But will the tarps and props come with him? You better believe it
  14. 2012 Marching Shows

    That music was written for a lights show that was meant to be a one year thing. Now it's been on for almost 13 years. Disney had originally meant for that to written by Hans Zimmer. Thank God they didn't, I love this music.
  15. LWE Director Out

    Jesus. Right a song about your daughter and bail. He must have been really upset about something.
