Now that FloMarching and Bands of America have released the 2019 schedule, I wanted to put the Texas schedule out there for we avid (or should I say rabid?) TXBands fans. And I am including GN of course, as so many Texas bands are going next fall. Here are the upcoming BOA dates in Texas for 2019:

September 21 McAllen (@Veterans Memorial Stadium)

September 28 Austin (@Kelly Reeves)

October 5 DFW (@Pennington Field)
Houston (@Legacy Stadium in Katy)

October 12 Midland (@Grande Communications Stadium)
(Also Texas Marching Classic @Kelly Reeves)

October 19 Waco (@McClane Stadium)

November 1&2 San Antonio Super Regional (@Alamodome)

November 14-16 Grand Nationals (@Lucas Oil Stadium)
Each day is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”

I will be anxiously waiting to hear which bands are attending which regionals next fall.  And if there will be any out of state attendees.  I am hoping that since it's not a 6A UIL State year, we will see more of the big guys attending more regionals in Texas.  Also hoping to see plenty of the 5A up and comers as well, even though it is a state year for them!

 

I would love to see Leander look something like this:

 

Sept 28 at Austin 

Oct 5 at Houston

Oct 19 at Waco

November at SA and at Indy!

 

That still gives them a free weekend between SA and GN, and a weekend after Houston to have the annual March A Thon.  

 

Come on Leander...don't let me down.   :lol:  :lol:  :wub:  :wub:

 

Edit...realistically, they will probably just do Austin and Houston (or DFW) before BOA SA, but a girl can dream...

The thing I'm most curious about is the attendance for Waco, being on the biggest region day in the state. We really won't know who will be attending until region dates are released.

Oh no, it’s the same weekend as UIL Region??

Fingers crossed they can land the Baylor stadium for Waco this year. Also, I think moving Midland back to mid-season is a smart move.

The 19th of Oct is the tenative date for UIL Region 8 Marching Contest.  There are 26 Bands in Region 8 in 4A, 5A and 6A.  The other 40 Bands in Class A, 2A and 3A will compete during the week.  Only one of the 26 schools attended a BOA event next year so I have to believe the Region will not change dates. . They will probably use MIDWAY ISD Panther Stadium, located in Hewitt, a suburb of Waco for the UIL Region. .  Good news is Baylor is away on the 19th. Biggest problem I see is feeding everyone with two events within 10 miles of each other.

Waco on the 19th is bad news bears for turnout.

I wonder about the date for the Leander ISD UIL Region 32? I’m guessing it will be the 19th as well since that is the usual weekend for us. Area for 3A and 5A is already set for the 26th, so it’s a real safe bet that our region will be performing at Gupton stadium on the 19th. Probably will be the case for most of Texas. This could put a serious hurt on the Waco BOA contest!

Our region has been on a Tuesday normally. Maybe they could try to lure some of our bands to Waco next year?

I really hope Region 18 stays on Tuesday. I want to avenge Waco 2018 and it be at McLane

If you look at the demographics of UIL, you will find that getting many of the top 5A &6A Bands to Waco next year to Compete is not a real possibllity.    Last year over 736 Bands marched on Saturday out of 1330 Bands. Among the Regions that competed on Saturday were 

Region 2, Lewisville ISD. Etc

Region 11 &12 San Antonio to include NEISD Bands

Regions 27, 31 and 33. Houston area to include the Cy Fair Schools. 

Region 32 Leander ISD Bands

Region 15, 30 and 14. The Rio Grande Valley Schools and Corpus Christi South to include Laredo

Region 25 McKinney ISD to Include Frisco and Allen

Region 26 Round Rock ISD

These are just the Biggest 5A & 6A Regions. 

 

Last year the Lone Star Preview, hosted by the Woodlands drew only 14 Bands for their contest. 

 

My guess is that if BOA has a contest at Waco that day they will probably draw closer to 18 Bands due to the other schools contest.

 

I wonder if someone looked at Avon and Carmel not going to ISSMA last year and thought that might be possible in TX. WRONG ANSWER.

What happens if a band misses UIL Region? Does UIL banish it from existence?

I don't know. Watch what happens with Klein Forest as they were unable to attend UIL Region this past season.

A band that skips Region will be disqualified from further UIL marching events that season and will be knocked down from Sweepstakes at UIL Concert. I think that also applies to the middle schools in their cluster as well (but would need to double check). I think it also jeopardizes a school’s ability to advance students in Solo and Ensemble.

When Westfield and Spring swore off UIL, they did their own Concert Contest and Solo and Ensemble for their district, including middle schools.

I don't know the reason, and while I heard a rumor I don't want to put that out there as the reason. All I know is that they had a very challenging season and several things went wrong for them unfortunately.

Wow. Jeopardizing concert band events due to an absence from a marching contest seems over-the-top to me. The rule makes me wonder if there even exists a TX public HS band without a marching band component.
