I said they would if they could. It has taken how many years of requesting this for it to finally happen. We have been talking about something like this for at least the last FIFTEEN YEARS! Good for them...moving at the speed of mud.
...that's why we're doing Area every year for every class starting next year...because UIL wants to drop post-Region marching contests. Wow...they got that one past us, I'll tell 'ya.
Absolutely an entertainment medium. UIL is king of the stage but they are sadly lacking in the marching arts. They canít even have a state competition every year for each class. If they could drop marching contests past Regionals they would do it in a heartbeat.
People that think that execution/performance is not a part of GE don't understand GE. That and my guess is their band are neither effective OR execute well. They like to complain when they get beat and blame it on money or props.
Plus it is marching band, it is supposed to be entertainment/effective. Add to that the bands that are the most effective also execute at a high level.
