Well, for anyone interested, I have confirmed that O'Fallon is attending ISU this year in place of GSL. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

 

I have fake tears of joy right now.

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.

Okay I can't even believe that O'Fallon would even then consider going to GSL and anyway but Illinois would there be a registration that is only $50.

This is awesom news.  I just checked the calendar.  I had a feeling she would change her mind on this one.

She had basically 2 3 choices: Belleville East/Francis Howell Central, ISU or not compete, as GSL was cancelled.

This will be a good year. If I'm not mistaken, pretty much all of the "heavy hitters" will be at ISU, including John Hersey. Is there anyone that is missing? I hope that Edwardsville and Bellville East come up again this year.

Based on what I've been able to find so far from tentative band calendars, the bands that are not coming back are Belleville East (hosting), Rock Island (WIU), Richmond-Burton, Pontiac and Huntley.  Highland has posted ISU on their band calendar from 1/31, East Peoria has it on their calendar, and Lincoln Community has it posted on their Charms calendar with a question mark.
