  1. Hi folks!! I have reached out to several people regarding the status of this contest. Once word comes along, I'll update the AREA RESULTS LIVE BLOG!!!! UIL 5A/3A RESULTS Live Blog
  2. Hi. Yeah. I have access to all sorts of information on here. Most of those screen names were made on the same day within minutes of each other. I would appreciate the attempt to raise "credibility" on the Predictions for your current/former program or an attempt to intimidate/troll one of our members be stopped IMMEDIATELY!! Otherwise, I'll start banning accounts, IP addresses, email addresses, and whatever I need to do to keep the integrity of this awesome place intact. This thread is to remain on topic. Thanks.
  3. Hi folks! Hope your day is wonderful. Just a quick reminder that any attempt to misrepresent yourself or slander any programs in an inappropriate way will result in account restrictions or a permanent ban. Post responsibly
  4. Correct!!!! I had to do some digging around since 12 Area Participants usually means that there is no Finals contest. However, because of several programs opting to do the Military track instead of Open Class, those Div 1 rating at Region still count! Area C 12 Area Participants (19 Area Qualifiers) 7 To Area Finals 3 To State Contest
  5. Hello folks!!! First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who tuned in to the Live Blog for the Texas Marching Classic yesterday! We experienced some of the highest viewership ever which is incredible considering that the blog was its own separate link away from our BOA coverage! You all made that happen and I am over the Moon! Thank you!!!! Let me address some things that happened yesterday: - The reason for the long delay for Prelims results was because there was an issue with the tabulation software. All numbers were correct so nothing was compromised. The software wasn't spitting out recaps like it was supposed to so that's why we had to wait for a bit for results. I know this because I was in the room!!! I then left the room because fajitas were being served in the Press Box. YUM!!! - As far as I am aware, NO ONE was disqualified from yesterday's event. Everyone who performed is on the recap sheets and no penalties appear on the recap sheets. To start publicly throwing out rumors like this is incredibly damaging and irresponsible. If it continues, I'll start removing accounts. - Comments for the Live Blog now have to be approved before they appear publicly. After Prelims results, a few people could not handle what was announced and decided to chime in with colorful language. I'm not down with that. - I saw amazing acts of sportsmanship between the programs yesterday!!! It hurts to hear that a few outliers may have conducted themselves in a less than mature fashion. Hateful language has absolutely no place on this website and this activity. It's all love here. I'll talk more about the contest on my Cherry On TMC episode which will come out later this week. Until then, please take care of yourselves
  6. Let’s keep this on topic. The event is a week away and these kiddos deserve some support. I cannot wait to be back in the stands nerding out!
  7. The tropical storm in the Gulf is about to dump plenty of rain on the Houston area the next few days. Schools are already cancelling classes/rehearsals for the next day or two. Along with possible quarantine issues existing with some programs, don't be surprised if some bands decide to pull out of the Conroe contest. It's an unfortunate situation for all involved and I hope the Houston area remains as safe as possible.
  8. THE NERD-IN IS BAAAACK!!! Let’s preview the BOA McAllen Regional Championship, the different experiences the competing programs dealt with last year, and how Box5TV, Marching Arts Education, and the TxBands Live Blog is going to wash over the Earth with marching band nerdiness!!!
  9. Super Regional Tickets ON SALE Quick Overview: - General Admission seating for both days of Prelims. Sit anywhere you can find a seat! - Lower Deck for Finals is General Admission. - Upper Deck for Finals is RESERVED SEATING. Pro Tip: - If you don't want to hassle with scouring over the lower deck for Finals seats, consider purchasing a reserved seat in the upper deck.
  10. For most of us, school is already underway. That means it is time to #GetGoodBandNerd!!! I'll explain the philosophy behind the phrase and how a marching member can navigate through the distractions of the beginning of school.
  11. Summer Band is back!! Let's go over the rules, regulations, calendars, and timelines associated with Summer Marching Band in the State of Texas.
  12. Drum corps is back! Let's go over the protocols, the limited tour, the financial/emotional cost, and just exactly how different things will be this Summer.
  13. Like I've said before, as a director, I would put up fake contests on my public calendar just to throw people off! A lot of local events are really pushing for high attendance so that the programs who host them can get back on track financially.
  14. Good thing I only like Canadian Football. GO EDMONTON!!! I get it. There is a concern amongst programs/admins of burnout during a year when 6A State is an "added" contest. It's tough to manage mentally and financially.
