Re: State Marching Contest
Friendly amendment here, BOA is still by school size (with less classifications - making things worse) and would not help there. USBands does contests by group size. The problem with that though is that you will inevitably have bigger schools put out smaller and more elite groups that smaller schools then have to compete against.
Honestly I think the best answer is to split marching band by divisions like football. I'd even be willing to suck it up and be happy with division 1 on one year, and division 2 on another year. If you're on the bottom of any division you're competing against double the kids and resources as the top unfortunately.
