Ok, Ok, it was region 4 3A on Tuesday.
Anyway, I'm a longtime director, with a decent resume with plenty of 1st divisions, sweepstakes, etc.
I enjoyed watching the bands and it was interesting seeing all the different styles.
Here's my issue. I was keeping my own little score sheet in the stands. Wednesday, I check with uilforms for results.
My score sheet was not consistent with the judges.
NOTE** I am not disagreeing with the judges!!
I am worried that my ear isn't up to where it used to be. What did I miss!? There was obvious 1st divisions that I nailed and there were obvious 3 divisions that I nailed. But some of the bands I gave a 1 on my sheet did not score as such. The same goes for some 2's I handed out that might have scored higher or lower (both in some cases).
What did I miss? What do I need to be doing to rehone my craft? I'm worried for my band now. Am I way off with my self evaluation?
All advice welcome! Thank you all!
