Re: Honor Band
You're a little low on your estimate of 1A bands but that is beside the point. So you're saying that because a kid lives in a town with more cows than people, they shouldn't have the same opportunity to compete for Honor Band as a kid from a metropolitan area? I do agree that the cost would be a concern. But I also think that a solution could be to have 1A bands judged at region with 2 per region advancing to state similar to the current SMC format. Rather than have a 1A concert, how about having that band put on a clinic for others at TMEA or TBA for other 1A directors? As a 1A director, I'd sure like to know what I can do to improve my program and learn from other directors in similar size schools. Some of the information covered at small school clinics at TMEA/TBA doesn't really apply to small school programs with only 1 director. Many 1A programs are one-director programs.
