ISU Class assignments revised. I'll keep this updated:

 

1A

Stays the same.

 

2A

Add Lincoln-Way West.

 

3A

Stays the same.

 

4A

Lose Normal West.

Add Collinsville

 

5A

Add Normal West.

Add Lincoln-Way East

Lose Collinsville.

Lose Lincoln-Way West.

 

6A

Lose Lincoln-Way East.

That makes a lot more sense. LWE isn't that big, and LWW is going to be really small from all indications

Hmm, these are some interesting predictions, only because I thought LWE would make it to 6A this year, and LWW is in 2A? I thought well they might have enough for 3A...we will have to see.

The class assignments are not predictions. We have the official class assignment list. So....we won't have to see...we have already seen.

Anyone know if there will still be a General Effect or Crowd Appeal? I'd think that they would keep GE cuz they could just average the Music GE and the Visual GE scores.
Yep, effect's still there. It's just relabeled as "Highest Achievement in Effect" and is the sum of the 2 Music GE judges and 1 Visual GE judge.

by chance, i am assuming many on this board are planning to attend, either as spectators or competitors.

 

i am planning to attend myself, to support my alma mater and also because my sister is competing as well. i will be wearing my hand-made green "snuggie" so if you spot me say hello.

 

p.s. still contemplating whether to monogram my snuggie with the school logo....opinions?

I'll be there, wearing my new ILmarching shirt; either a Ringer T or a long sleeve dark t-shirt. Hopefully the latter this year, as I'd much rather have cold(er) temperatures.

 

Anyways, here's my tentative show schedule for this year:

September 12th: Lake Park

October 3rd: Stagg

October 10th: Lincoln-Way

October 17th: maybe DGS or Naperville Central

October 24th: ISU

November 12th-14th: Grand Nationals

From reading the ISU web site about how the competition will be judged (not doubling up judges on music & visual GE, AND having totally different panels for finals), I think it'll be very interesting. With more scores being pulled together and averaged in the past, it was harder for an individual judges score to drastically impact placings. Seems like it'll make easier for a potential upset or surprise in prelims. And for those that make finals, placements could be shaken up a little more.

 

Also, while I recognize a few names, the judging panel looks pretty different from the past. I'm not sure if I saw a list of the judges for 2008, but going back another year or two, I'm recalling that a decent portion of the judges were more along the lines of college directors, but now there's more of a DCI, BOA, and WGI focus.

 

Here are the judges for ISU: http://www.bands.ilstu.edu/downloads/Judgebios09.pdf

 

Anyone happen to know which are judging prelims and which are judging finals?
