  1. Quick question. Is it always J1 and J2 that switch with J4 and J5? Or, could J2 and J3 switch with J4 and J5?
  2. Really close scores! Congratulations to: College Park: 1st time Area Champion and 3rd trip in a row to State! Klein Oak: 1st trip to State! Tomball Memorial: 1st 6A State advancement! Oak Ridge: 3rd trip in a row to State! Klein Cain: 1st trip to State in the school's 5th year of existence!

  4. Someone will probably post it here. Wish I could see my alma mater PSHS. Marched with them in 1992 …. the only time the school ever advanced from Area to State. I really want to find a video from that year so I can show my son who is Freshman in a Houston area band that has a chance of going to State this year.
  5. Here is the UIL rule: "Should fifteen or more bands qualify for advancement in a single conference for the area contest, one band for each five bands that qualified for advancement to the contest shall be certified for advancement to the state contest." Abtwitch confirmed over on the Megasheet thread that bands that choose the state military contest instead of Area (Kingwood and Atascocita in this case) still count as qualified for area.
  6. Area F 6A Prelims Schedule October 30th, 2021 - Galena Park Stadium Adjudicators: Matt Burke, Greg Dick, George Little, Rob Toups, Robert Vetter Qualifying Bands: 26 Attending Bands: 23 Advance to Finals: 10 Advance to SMBC: 5 Willis 9:00 Oak Ridge 9:15 Grand Oaks 9:30 Klein 9:45 Nimitz 10:00 Summer Creek 10:15 Tomball 10:30 Klein Forest 10:45 Westfield 11:00 Dekaney 11:15 ---------Lunch----------- Davis 12:15 Klein Cain 12:30 Spring 12:45 The Woodlands 1:00 MacArthur 1:15 Conroe 1:30 Tomball Memorial 1:45 College Park 2:00 Aldine 2:15 Klein Oak 2:30 Klein Collins 2:45 North Shore 3:00 Humble 3:15 Announcement of Ten Finalist ---------Dinner----------- Finals 5:30
  7. The 6A Area F Regionals are complete and 26 bands qualified for Area but three of those bands are not attending Area so only 23 will compete. An additional band is attending Area but will elect not to go to state. Is it certain there will be five and not four that will advance to State from Area F even with Kingwood and Atascocita declaring for Military state competition? I know the rule says “qualifying” rather than “attending” but just thought I would double check with one of the experts here given this is the first full year since state UIL Military contest started.
  8. Looks like all 6A bands from Region 9 received straight 1's today. In total, 26 bands qualified for Area F which should mean 5 will advance to state this year versus 4 spots in 2018. In combination with information above that TWHS is not attending state, there should be at least 2 bands going to state from this area who didn't qualify in 2018.
  9. The increase in scores in just one week did seem surprising … especially comparing last week Prelims to this week Prelims. Pearland +8.7, Oak Ridge +8.4, Westlake +7.9, SFA +6.2 with the average of all bands that competed in both being >5. Bridgeland seemed to be an outlier with a -1.15 vs last week. I don't know, maybe there is always more variation in Prelim vs Finals comparisons but interesting for sure. The largest driver of the increases seemed to be in the General Effect - Visual category with several +3 increases.
  10. It's $10 per car for parking. Should probably have cash but parking attendants are supposedly taking credit card as well. Also, there is less parking than normal due to construction on the north side of the stadium. Therefore, they may run out of parking mid-afternoon but BOA is providing shuttles from Oak Ridge High School down the street to the stadium as necessary.
