Shows for the weekend of September 22, 2012

Recommended Posts

Week 3 is upon us.  The BOA season starts this upcoming weekend (finally!), and we have several bands competing there.  Downers Grove South faces a tough test in Indiana, and we have a very fun matchup in Wheeling going on with Warren Township, Lincoln-Way North, John Hersey, Marian Catholic and Prospect all going head to head in Class 3A.  Great weekend of shows; let's get right to them!

How are the classes determined? 


At Wheeling they have 3 schools w/ enrollments greater than 2000 in class 2A, (WWS, Glenbard West & Waubonsie Valley) while some smaller schools (Marian 1443, Lemont 1493 and Lincoln Way North 1755) are competing in 3A. 


Does the school decide whic class they want to compete in?

Most Chicago area competitions determine their class size by band size, but only playing musicians.


Lake Park, CMBF, Prospect, Lincoln-Way, Providence and I think a few others use this system:

Class A: less than 64 playing members

Class AA: 65-96 playing members

Class AAA: 97+ playing members

I am thinking O'Fallon at BOA Louisville what say you?


This early season shows are entirely unpredictable.  And, if it is as...odd as last year's season, anything can (and will) happen!  For the record, I currently have Lafayette winning.
