  1. Imagine the impact if this shutdown occurred on October 15th two weeks from State Championships.
  2. I enjoy following this site for entertainment purposes but opinions and hope override facts most every time.
  3. All 5A bands now compete only in the BOA circuit so 4A is the new 5A.
  4. Yes, Lafayette will get feedback but the scores will not be published. That's the advantage of conducting your own contest.

From a fan's perspective I do not always agree with the placements but I do not go so far as to assume there is collusion within the judges to place a band in a certian spot or there is a conspiracy withn the KMEA to ensure certain bands make finals.
