Big factor is how much of a distraction is HC at your school? One place I was I learned the hard way my first year that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING would get done HC week. There I would just clean. Play to the end, even stop a few sets short of what you know if it is a better temporary ending picture.
If your band can learn five sets today/tomorrow, and HC is not so much of a distraction that they won't retain, then go for it.
Many bands are incomplete the first contest (or more) of the season.
I have a dilemma. I can take this week and work to clean the 90% of the show that we have on the field. This is Homecoming week and our firt=st contest is Saturday.
On the other hand, I could try to push through and learn the last 5 sets and finish the show.
What is the advice of the board?
