Re: Area Every Year Plan
Name a sport or ag team that sends six or seven buses, one or even two semi trucks, and two hundred students to every event, unfundraised, paid 100% out of district funds, with hotel rooms booked two days in advance - annually.
I'll wait for your answer.
That's nearly every 5A band at state. Multiply that by 1.5 for the 6A bands, .75 for 4A, and so on.
It's not a ridiculous argument, you're just coming from the perspective of a wealthy school district (which is likely what you were in in high school as well). Come see how the rest of us live in Title 1 land.
Most communities will, this is a ridiculous argument. They sent the sports and Ag teams all over the place for much less challenging competitions, what is one more Marching Contest? In the grand Scheme of Marching Band it is just not that big price to pay for a state level contest. Stop with this grandstanding, districts will cover a UIL State Contest.
Who's going to pay for it? My community won't. Most communities won't. SMC is expensive.
I really do not like it. I wish we could have the state marching contest every year with it!!!!! that's the elaphant in the room
Just curious about directors' initial plans for the Area marching contest each year. Assuming the band makes a 1 at UIL, will you go to Area contest in a non-state year?
