we have heard rumors that Vista Ridge is attending/confirmed, but we will not know for sure for a few more months - this is where the conversation starts

If Reagan follows recent trends they should be going since they go every four years. In 2020 their time is up to go.

so by you starting the topic - was it to state that Reagan is going in 2020? 

 

correct me if I am wrong - Reagan has done TOR in Jan 2018 (Gnats invite- from earlier conversation) , Midwest in Nov 18 and doing Macy's in Nov 2019

 

 

2020 is a state year and with the possible 2020 changes coming to UIL it could be a challenge

 

if they go - I wish them luck, it will be a big year for Gnats and hope there is a big Texas contingent

I read some other posters on these forums and the hornrank forums that Reagan was always going to do Grand Nats next year, I believe.

Really excited to see what VR can do with an extra week or two of marching season. Their current staff has proven that they are very capable of milking the most out of these shows during the last couple of weeks each of the last 2 years. Turning the Tables was a 7th-10th place show until they made some pretty magical adjustments in the last couple weeks to really make this show blossom into a medal contender.

Definitely in the near future, but based off of what I've heard maybe not quite yet. Definitely a possibility, though.

From what I’ve heard Keller won’t be going. They’re still reeling from their fun yet expensive Macy’s Parade trip.

I dont think SFA is attending, there is a rule that limits how many out of state trips you can take in a certain amount of years in FBISD.

Almost certain Flower Mound won’t go back until 2021 on an off-state year, along with Marcus.

Flo Mo def won’t go in 2020. They were originally scheduled to do nats in 18 as opposed to 17, but after 16 was such a debacle for all the state participants who were also going to nationals, the moved it up to 17, I believe at the districts request. They and Marcus will likely go in 2021

Cedar Park may be starting a four year pattern. I vaguely remember their director mentioning something about it in a flo interview back in 2016 but I may me misremembering

There’s also the fact LISD bands tend to go to Grand Nats in pairs and with Vista Ridge making the trip we could see this continue
