2021 BOA Grand Nationals (Nov. 11-13)


Recommended Posts

I just can't get into Carmel's show this year. They have all the tools to be the champion here; the music book is brilliant (their woodwinds are excellent), visual design is near flawless like usual, and the color guard is absolutely phenomenal and does things that would never be attempted in a million years by any guard in Texas (except maybe the Woodlands). But it just doesn't grab my attention for some reason.

Yeah, Flower Mound is in a very good spot. That's exciting! Semis champions tend to come later in the schedule rather than earlier.

But the other contenders aren't in bad spots, either. Most of the finalist "locks" (or lock-ish groups) are in that block before the lunch break, so there will be plenty of pretty direct comparisons. Nevertheless, I think it will be difficult for the judges to decide on their finalists this year.

I'm 100% team Texas. But we don't have any 2A bands partying this weekend in Indy. Norwin winning AA was not unexpected. I'm excited to see how they do in finals. It's pretty awesome for an AA band to qualify on score when in Texas some seasons we can't even get a 3A band to qualify for a Super Regional's finals.

I mean, Argyle would easily beat Norwin if they went.
