In my opinion, it is already happening... Maybe it is just me - but after seeing many, many, many bands this fall - the gap between the "haves" and the "have nots" has really grown after Covid. It is noticeable in all classes, but most notable in 5A and 6A. I am hopeful that the region sheets stay the same and we can still provide schools without all of the resources a great HS Band Marching experience with good evaluation. In this case it all comes down to having judges who have their eyes open.
A minor rant - I sat behind a few younger band directors as a parent at a contest recently. A 4A band marched - and their comments were unbelievably negative - its one thing to think it, it is a completely another thing to say it out loud. Scary thing - this was a really good band who advanced... I did share with them very quietly that I would hope they would not let parents let them hear them talking that way. I just wonder how many more of this is going on. Rant over - thankful that we are almost to the end of another season.
