This guy is trying to talk bands into going to area..; |
Although our region meeting is next Saturday, I wanted to share some information with you regarding Area Contests. I've been in state region executive secretary and area executive secretary meetings this morning. On Thursday, I had a zoom meeting with the 4 region executive secretaries who make up Area A. Before you make any final decisions on your participation, I thought you should have the current information:
2A Area will be in Lubbock November 14th-we could have around 20 bands
4A Area will be in Amarillo November 14th
6A Area will be in Odessa November 14th (as it stands now, only 1 6A band is interested....so that may change to no 6A Area)
3A Area will be in Abilene November 14th and there are around 15 bands who have indicated an interest in attending, mainly from Region 6
5A Area was to be in Lubbock but no 5A's are interested.
El Paso has opted out of all marching competitions this fall.
San Angelo Central has opted out of all marching competitions this fall.
This seems to be the trend around the state with small school vs. large school interest. I would encourage the 3A and 4A directors to reconsider your position with regards to attending, although I understand the travel issues you might be facing.
Thank you for your hard work in trying to make this year a positive experience for your students, no matter your decision on contests.
