Re: The whole Marching Band thing
I wrote UIL and asked them to consider cutting Area and State marching this year (and sliding everything over a year so this year's competitors don't feel like they have to wait three years). I suggested leaving the local competitions in place until the last minute, but given my experiences last year, I feel like it's a money grab.
Last year I had two groups signed up to go to UIL and because of COVID, it was cancelled. Happens. Life moves on. I'm mad because we didn't get one penny refunded. I understood chipping in, but to get NOTHING back?!? I just picture them collecting all the fees and cancelling last minute again.
