Re: 8 hr Rule for Winterguard & Winter DL
Winter guard and winter percussion should be held to the same 8 hour limit as marching band. My God, if you can get 100-350 kids to limit it to 8 hours, you sure should be able to get 10-30ish to do so as well. Yes, it's a different monster, and we've made it into a horrible one by making kids rehearse 4-5 hours EVERY weekday plus weekends.
Balance! If you don't have balance, you will have burn out.
Translation you have 8 Hours between Monday 12:01am- End of school Friday. Weekends are the wild west. They don't have the stricter rule we have for marching band.
