Re: Fair Playing Field
I attended an Area contest this weekend with bands that have previously won and might win SMC again. Their design, props, music, etc. were most likely expensive. I have know specific idea what they spent so I would rather not speculate. I would like to see the band that marches and plays as well as them. If any school marched and played like those bands they would easily make it to state and probably place pretty high. It is a real disservice to the kids in those bands to attribute their success to money. Yes the stuff on the field is impressive, but what those kids are doing is the real greatness.
