Now the burning issue is State every will year will be the same bands make it to state. I propose that UIL Set a budget for the marching band. There are band programs in our state that spends 80K plus a year on marching band. This is very unrealistic for the majority of the state. YEt, the band programs that spend the money are always at state.
What about the rest of the band programs who put in the same amount of hard work and yet do to MONEY they can't complete.
Just my two cents
