On October 21st, 2017, USBands will be holding the first ever marching band competition to be hosted in the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium. They are targeting enrollment to be "up to 60" bands.

This is the week before 1A/2A/3A/5A Area on the same day as several UIL Region competitions, so we will have to see about attendance.

I've noticed more and more regions moving their UIL competitions to weekday evenings, and I could also see plenty of bands double booking this with UIL, just for the opportunity to play there. USBands isn't my favorite in terms of judging rubrics but this seems like a great season ender for smaller programs and a good warm up for State/super regional for some bigger programs

Does this open the door for a  BOA/DFW super regional?  How did they get AT&T Stadium?  Why does the DFW BOA regional skip venues around so much?

Not only is this venue bad for acoustics, it is a logistical nightmare for getting bands in/out.

I can't imagine many of the BOA regulars attending this. Many will be at UIL region. And that stadium has the worst stadium acoustics I've ever experienced. Sound just disappears in there.

How many finalists can we expect? I'm not too familiar with the usbands format.

If they're planning on accommodating 60 bands at a one day competition, I suspect there might not be a finals. Otherwise i think they take 15? Idk, usbands is hard to follow

It is UIL weekend. They won't be there.

From what I understand USBands is a completely different scoring system than BOA. I saw the list of bands competing and really didn't recognize hardly any of them.

If the Carroll is Southlake Carroll then they should do OK. I saw them at UIL a couple years ago and they put on a good show. They have rec'd a 1 rating the last few years at UIL region

We ARE Flower Mound!

Would imagine Lafayette, LA wins this one- though they aren't quite what they used to be so I suppose they may have some challengers

They certainly still seem like the front runner but who knows. USBands can certainly create surprises and we may see a band really step up and exceed expectations.
