2013 Contest Dates

Many Indiana school districts limit travel across state lines, some to just 50 miles. I would love to get schools from Indiana, but I have several friends that are directors there that have complained about the limited travel.

 

This isn't true for many.

Sullivan Marching Band Festival: October 5th.

 

This year on October 5th, 2013 Sullivan will be hosting their 1st Annual Marching Band Contest at Sullivan High School.  Sullivan is approximately 20 miles southeast of Decatur, Illinois.  They are easily accessible from I-57 as well as Route 51/I-39.  This contest will use a caption based judging system and will be based on band size.  They are planning an afternoon start to help avoid sports conflicts that may occur in the morning.  Cost will be $125.

Well, ones that I have spoken with have said such things, and indicated that it was very common in the state. To clarify, the 50 miles was as far across the state line they could go.

 

Ah...I'd be interested to hear what school districts this occurs in.
