Re: SMC Results
Sure that makes things equal, but it ignores equity. The current system works fine. I would argue it has been better the last few years since the number of bands that go to state is determined by the number of bands that QUALIFIED for area...not on the number of bands that attended area.
I kinda wish there were more area competitions to reduce travel distances for some schools, but that's a whole different argument. Plus finding judges is already hard enough.
limit the number of bands from area to state? No matter how many groups attend your area contest, 3 go to state. Period. Were can lose the "our area sends more to state than any other" BS.
Yes, I'm aware that there will be some FANTASTIC bands that are left at home, but there are already fantastic bands that didn't even make area finals that would beat several bands at SMC from a couple of the weaker areas.
Looks like Area G bringing up the bottom yet again.
