I really think there's a big correlation in that traveling to away games ending, and the band support falling. There's something to the competitive spirit that communities have in all aspects of the Friday night lights. Being able to say that your band sounds better, or they're bigger, or their show is more fun than the others is something a lot of communities place pride in. As a consequence they'll give you some more budget money, another staff member, or help in scheduling needs.
This year I do feel it's safer to do home games only, and we're observing that for our season, but we'll be back to away games next year for certain. My kids miss the away games a lot, and I hate that they're missing out on that this year. We believe it's the right move though for their health and our communities health.
