  1. Two good articles about the Colorado Study Dan was referring too in his podcast. https://www.nfhs.org/articles/unprecedented-international-coalition-led-by-performing-arts-organizations-to-commission-covid-19-study/ https://www.tampabay.com/news/health/2020/06/26/marching-bands-arent-sure-how-to-handle-the-pandemic-so-they-commissioned-two-studies-involving-spit/
  2. DCI 1978 in Dallas, a very hot August at Lake Highlands Stadium, this was my first DCI contest to watch. I got to see the Blue Stars, Crossmen, Madison Scouts and Boston Crusaders. 1979 HEB Contest (My Sr. Year, biggest contest we went to that year). UIL 6A State 2018, Vista Ridge getting the Gold medal.
  3. Sorry 😟 I should have known. I saw it and got excited about it and didn't think to wait.
  4. Leander's 2020 show announcement will be April 29th @ 6pm. Until then they will be showcasing a voting tournament on the past 12 Leander Bands shows at this link (link and status on Instagram as well): https://www.leanderband.org/tournament/ Already showing 2008 and 2009. What fun😃
  5. For bands truly to grow they need to keep competing with excellence, having top bands mixed in the competitions adds that spark and shows other organizations what it takes to perform at that level. I don't think any top group should apologize or not attend, all are welcome to come out and compete. I would love see Lake Travis, some of the other LISD bands or any band that want's to compete in a great competition attend! The Vista Ridge Marching Festival is an excellent contest ran with excellence with top notch judges year in and out (and lot's of fun!).
  6. Love that you found a giant "table" to turn Will love to see it in action again!
  7. Thanks for the conformation and I have updated the file and links on the original post. Kind of glad it wasn't only me, that mess up on the UIL page was a bit misleading. I also double checked all the other UIL results and the rest look good, but glad to fix it if anything else is off. 🙂
  8. Thanks, looking at some other sites the scores you show above look like Prelim results. Finals show to be: 1: Cedar Park 2: Dripping Springs 3: Centennial, Frisco 4: Friendswood 5: Lake Travis Please let me know if you agree or where you were able to get the results from.
  9. Just for fun! Attached is a decade in review workbook with links to the show videos. The file has 2010 through 2019 Texas Marching Bands with the top 5 BOA San Antonio and top 5 UIL for each year. Hope this gives you something to watch while we miss Concert and Guard season. Top 5 Texas UIL and SA BOA the decade in review 2010 through 2019 - 2011 fix.xlsx
  10. Thanks Dan for posting! Got my DCI Austin (Round Rock) tickets at 11am sharp today and got my favorite seats!
  11. Here is another reason I love Band so much and am very proud of the Vista Ridge organization this holiday season! Earlier this year at BOA West Texas the Vista Ridge band performed after the Estacado Band, the Estacado band is around 30 to 50 members, Vista Ridge (Students, Parents, directors, boosters) were so inspired by the passion for music that Estacado demonstrated that they had to do something for them. Please see the attach news link for what was done. Great story for this Christmas season! https://www.everythinglubbock.com/video/austin-area-hs-donates-over-5000-to-the-estacado-band/4175266/
  12. So proud of Team Texas and fellow LISD South Bands! What a showing!

  14. Two things now that I opened my eyes enough and read it correctly. 1) Yes it would have been fantastic to see Reagan at Grand Nat's. One of the best things I ever saw on the field and I love the show. I agree that has to be planned a year in advance at least so it's just would have been at this point. 2) I do believe it is possible and a good thing for Semi Finals to be in San Antonio (sorry Dan). It has to however make financial sense for BOA and I think we have enough bands and interest now that it should be compelling for BOA to look at. I don't think we have ever shown enough bands going to Grand Nat's from Texas to consider that as a offset for not doing Semi in Texas. It cost's too much for larger groups of bands to do this regularly but it is great when we do get to send some!
  15. Darn it, I did miss read the thread, sorry I was thinking about Semi Finals, not about Reagan going to Grand Nats. My apologies for the confusion but if you want to talk about Semi Finals and if the $'s make sense for BOA that is what I was thinking about.
