As a gracious host, you could have walked over to the other side after halftime (or during) and checked on the other band to make sure everything was OK. |
Allow the speculation to commence....
This happened to me once, but at a "normal" game. Apparently, the band ate before the game and several of the kids fell ill. The director made the decision not to march and even let the sick kids go home their parents were there. They ended up leaving after the 3rd quarter. However, the director at least let me know. He came up to me just before halftime and told me the situation. That was 20 years ago. It's unfortunate that common courtesy has eroded so much that a director cannot communicate with another to let them know of something that could affect halftime. A simple call, text, or note saying "Due to an unforeseen issue, we will not be marching tonight". But to leave you hanging without knowing what was going on was just unprofessional.
Last. District game. Good weather. Visiting band sends announced announcer to press box. 2 minutes , 1 minute and they’re still in the stands. 30 seconds left till half. We are warming up in end zone. They are still in stands . Their announcer gets text. Not marching. WT$&@. Ok for us with senior night. But reality curious as to why not march????
Really .......weird. First time in 50 years. Hmmmmm
