Re: at what point is it a bad idea
We already had our contest for Area A a few weeks ago. Honestly, we had over had the band missing due to Covid and a couple for grades. Even my superintendent asked me if I still wanted the band to go. This band hadn't made a 1 at Region in many years so this was the first time any kid in this band had a chance to go to Area. We went, the kids were pumped about doing a great job and we didn't advance, which was more than okay. Now, if I were in your shoes I'd consider whether or not we made frequent 1st divisions in marching and advanced to Area on a regular basis. If the answer is yes, I'd let this one go and regroup for next year.
