  1. That's bizarre. I mean, the Pflugerville schools used to district with RRISD and LISD. If I'm not mistaken, it used to be the 5 RRISD schools along with 3 LISD schools AND Hendrickson. This is when they were still 6A and so was Leander High. It would be silly to send them to district with Temple and Bryan.
  2. So Manor, Weiss and Dripping all move to 6A? I wonder if Weiss moves into the same district with RRISD and LISD for 8 schools AND perhaps so does Manor for 9 schools in that district?
  3. This is true. However, the plans have already been laid out. Heck even TMEA has Pearson Ranch High School listed on their site.
  4. that's so hard! Those poor kids. I had to warn the Westwood parents back in the day to make sure they heard WESTWOOD and not yell when they heard WESTLAKE. It happens too often.
  5. Recaps were on hornrank last night for those of you who want them. There are a lot of bands out there that really need to rethink their strategies regarding the shows they field. Not a knock to the kids because those decisions are out of their hands, but sometimes less is more. Clean shows with beautiful music seem to be a theme here. Also, I'm really sick and tired of bands using black shoes. I get why they do, but my goodness, look at Hebron and Westlake. They look awesome out there. Perhaps programs should spend some time on footwork and actually marching in straight lines so that kids can learn the fundamentals, then elaborate on the drill. I think Flower Mound marches with white shoes. They look sharp..period. The other theme that I can't get my head around is the freaking black uniforms. The fact that Round Rock doesn't have any maroon in their unis, and that the Harlingen drum majors have all black unis is so bizarre. Growing up, Harlingen was the RED CARDINAL BAND. They fielded RED unis! Everyone knew who they were with very little black. I get why programs do this, but it honestly is making one band look like the other. Yes I'm old school. Yes I am not a band director. BUT, the scores for both BOA and State say a lot. I hope that these directors figure it out.
  6. Different competitions with different judges. It’s not really fair to compare.
  7. Was texting this with my daughter. Area D and H represent Central Texas. They had the other half. I think H is Leander ISD and Westlake
  8. Same anyone know what happened to Round Rock and why they weren’t there for retreat?
  9. Wishing my Round Rock ISD bands the best of luck! Go Cedar Ridge! Go Round Rock! Go Wood!!!!
  10. Perfect..thank you. I'm really proud of our state..pushing the boundaries with these shows. With some of these powerhouse bands taking a whole year off from marching, and coming back as strong as they have, the other bands smell blood in the water. For you kids who are reading this, you are awesome. I miss having a kid in the band and just see me as your mom/aunt...cheering you on. GOOD JOB EVERYONE. Oh, and I'll take a dm for some performances.
  11. Their show that was supposed to happened last year would have taken them far. I’m still salty over Covid ruining that for them.
  12. At least they aren’t like Frenship that is traveling from Lubbock 🙄
  13. I'm sorry, but I cannot see Seven Lakes or Pearland beating any Austin area band this year. Pearland got lucky in 2019 in beating out Cedar Ridge and Westwood. That certainly won't happen again. Cedar Ridge, Round Rock and Westwood are just NOW PEAKING. This hasn't happened...ever. They are united and out for blood. I never in a million years would I have thought this would be possible. But you bet that RRISD having 3 bands at State this year has brought these three programs together. That being said, CTJ tweaked their show at Area..and I FREAKING LOVED IT. It's the first time that I'd rank it higher than Reagan. Austin area bands rock.
  14. Announcer starts with 45 seconds remaining in the 5 minute setup time. With 20 seconds left, they will tell the drum majors they can start.
  15. I want to see the prelim sheets. I heard about some crazy placements by a judge. 😀
  16. Cool. I’m sure you’re right. great night for Round Rock ISD placing 4 bands in Finals.
