It amuses me that folks consider keeping people safe as "taking your season away". There may not be another person on this board that cares more about the marching arts than me. That said, I will gladly sacrifice the 2020 season to keep humans safe.
The #1 priority should be getting students back in buildings for education. If learning is being done remotely, there is no band period...indoors or outdoors. I would much rather focus on getting kids safely in class than learning the opening set of the 2020 marching band show. Can both things be done safely? That's the big question...and right now I have not seen an answer that I'm comfortable with.
Loves marching band, but loves my health more.
