Hi.  I'm Daniel.  


I'm an Admin/Live Blog person with Txbands.com.  Once upon a time, when the site first started out, I did a silly podcast ranting and raving about the marching activity.  I did it for awhile and then I sent it to Podcast Heaven.  Or I deleted the access code for the podcast software.  DON'T YELL AT ME!!!


Anyhow, I did a new one.  If you people like it, I will keep doing it.  If not, I'll put the microphone away in my closet next to my old Chuck Norris Action Figure (Yes, I still have it.  Maybe.  I don't know really.)


Today's Topic:
The beginning of actually learning drill and UIL rule basics.  IS IT ALL DUMB AND STUPID???  Find out at the links below.





Enjoy at your own risk!!

I had to check the date on this post a few times to see if it wasn't just a recycled old one. He IS still alive!

Also - a good listen.

Your point on "It would not be good if we tried to push more than 8 hours a week" was interesting, because I've recently realized I agree...but not for the reason I'd like to.  I found "The Leaguer" (UIL's monthly periodical) archive and was reading an article from.....some year...'95? '96?--it was really close to when they implemented the "8 hours per week during the schoolyear" rule.....they polled various school administrators from that time and found a solid majority of them wanted to axe the SMBC entirely, at least for the largest size classification (5A)....and I think it was due to the insane "hours arms race" a lot of the most competitive schools had gotten into during that era.

I don't forsee the TEA's rules surrounding the 8 hour rule ever being relaxed in the forseeable future.....if a rule ever does change it will be at UIL's discretion and will apply mainly to summer.  But even then, that's unlikely....especially when I'd say at least half of the schools in the largest size classifications have maxed out every aspect of all rules and some of them are chomping at the bit trying to find loopholes around them even today.

Really enjoyed and I found myself agreeing with a lot of the points you made.
