    Next year there will be six bands in each class so there will be many new faces in finals. Class A Cumberland Co is a band on the rise and I think a Governor’s cup is in their future. Nicholas Co and Danville return to finals. Class AA Russell Ind will get to the level of Beechwood and Murray and the race to the top will be very tight. Class AAA Pulaski Co makes finals. Estill County and Adair battle it out for the cup. Class AAAA The most competitive class gets crazier with a rapidly improving Christian Co and Owensboro, however the beasts in the east reign supreme. Class AAAAA GRC returns to finals. Madison Central figures out how to clean a 300+ member band and takes the cup.

    2030 Finals predictions

    2030: Someone complains about judging/results. Adair and Lafayette are still winning.

    Semifinals results

    Not shocked at all. The west bands show design/programming needs work.

    4A Semifinals @ Barren Co.

    I’m not sure Mr. Culp should be commenting on results/judging since that is a clear violation of judging ethics.
