  1. I'll be going to San Antonio and Indy for sure. My daughter got a contract in the Guard with the Blue Knights so I'm officially a Blue Knights fan now! 🤩
  2. Yep, I was wondering that myself. Vista Ridge has never been in the same contest with Wando until now.
  3. I have watched Vista all year but today was the first time I saw them perform the show. Unreal performance! I had chills!
  4. Don't see much here about PSHS and thanks for posting! I saw the show this year at the Homecoming game and really enjoyed it. Some great kids, wish Plano could grow the band culture more, compete in BOA, etc., lots of talent and potential! Go Plano Wildcat Band! PSHS class of 80 (Trombone).

  6. I got to see Westlake at Region, they are looking good again this year and looking like Westlake. Also Lake Travis was much improved from earlier in the season and they will be in the hunt as well.
  7. Area H for 5A is only 3 bands. Westlake is in the 6A Area H group and 6A has 4 bands going.
  8. Others may have a much better answer than me but it doesn't look as odd if you look at the alignment map for Regions, Area H is composed of Regions 32, 29 and 11. It's a big state and the 3 regions are adjacent and cover more South and west of Austin.
  9. Going to Gumpton Stadium in Cedar Park tonight for a good one with Region 32 (5A and 6A bands). Just look at this amazing line-up ? 5A: Cedar Park Glenn Leander Liberty Hill Marble Falls Rouse 6A: Lake Travis Vandegrift Vista Ridge Westlake
  10. Just as a sampling on the location aspect of Grand Nationals let's reverse this and look at when Avon came to Texas. They received 4th place at BOA San Antonio in 2017. 2006 is the last time they did not medal at Grand Nationals. Avon goes every year to Grand Nationals and is very used to going. They are used to performing in the stadium and all the other factors that go with a basic home field advantage. This is a factor, but as some Texas bands like Vandy have shown it is not insurmountable. It is harder for the Texas Bands having to travel further to a less familiar environment and less practice time. Just makes me more proud of the accomplishments of the Texas Bands!
  11. According to the LiveBlog posts Vandegrift takes 4 out of 5 captions and comes in 2nd? Not sure how that happens?
  12. So glad the rumor on Rouse was not true! See them in Finals and 3rd in 5A.
  13. "Leandermomma" Instagram's feed has some short recordings from the bands today. Also TX Bands is has the live blog going on this one. You can click on the 2nd link on the Txbands Liveblog page.
