Does anyone already know if they are going? I do!


We go every year so I would bet money that’s not going to change.

Everyone else is afraid. Tarpon Springs and Broken Arrow both don't want to risk losing a regional, and Blue Springs doesn't want to lose a medal (and end up in the bottom half). Avon now gets to say they did it, but lost their streak of medals in the process. It's cost prohibitive for Dobyns-Bennett and Wando isn't a band that travels much. Every other band - quite literally every other one in question - would be in grave danger of missing finals.

For better or worse, this regional is Texas's turf. Other bands can come at their own risk.


Sounds like a great opportunity for a social media campaign to invite them. Dare them. Call them out. Whatever works. 😁

Carmel is the only exception. They won last time they came down. Dang Carmelites.
Each day is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”

Agh! I actually had that typed out, but some of the formatting of the quote took that sentence with it!

 

I also have a cynical reason why Carmel will come back, but I won't express that publicly :)

Will or won’t?

To clarify, are you saying Carmel will be back or did you mean to say they won’t come back?

They are by far the most likely to come back. Couldn’t tell you when, but I’m sure it’ll be on an even year.

Carmel, Indiana. The band we all love to hate. :lol:

Dang Carmelites.

( I don’t actually hate them. I just know people who do. And I might be persuaded....). ;)

Perhaps what isnt being said is that Carmel wants to do what Avon wasnt able to do. Coming on an even year is the smarter move because most of the best Texas bands dont have G Nats caliber shows and are instead trying to do well at UIL, so Carmel could come in and potentially win.

Personally, I really would love to see the Oklahoma schools lay claim to the San Antonio super regional as well. I know that most of them wouldnt make finals very often, but there are plenty of great Texas bands that still come every year knowing that their chances of making finals aren't great.

There are a large number of great bands in Oklahoma that aren't named Broken Arrow that could be competitive, mostly from the Tulsa area. Union, Owasso, Bixby, Jenks, Mustang, Edmonds... Now, I do understand that St Louis seems to be their super regional of choice, but I think if they ever made the trip they would see how great of an experience it is down here and it would help them to improve at a more rapid pace than St. Louis does.

If San Antonio ever adopts a semifinals format (which I know is not likely) then we would be much more likely to get out of state competitors. That being said, kudos to Camdenton for making the trip and giving a great performance!

Isn't the Oklahoma state marching championship usually the same weekend as BOA - SA?

Depends. It was during region week this year and most often during area.

Notable Jumps:

 

Timber Creek - 7 places from 24 to 17 

 

Coppell - 7 places from 25 to 18

Vista Ridge - 12 places from 16 to 4

 

All 3 have a really good chance at making BOA SA Finals (of course Vista Ridge). I believe Coppell is making the trip to Grand Nationals next year for the first time in school history and is looking to make finals. As a close friend of people from both Coppell and Timber Creek, I can't wait to see where this rivalry will take them.

Madison - 15 places, 55 to 40. Sorry if that sounds like bragging. I’m not trying to.

That's substantial improvement and it's not a suprise. The best Madison has been.

And an 82.6!! That's nearly 10 points higher than last year. You can't quite compare year to year(although I'd argue 17 and 18 scores are very similar) but however you slice it, that's a big leap. Congrats on your hardwork and successful season!

Jack C. Hays - 17 places, 51 to 34. Such an accomplishment for both of our bands. Awesome work!
