    Changes, one year in

    I agree. Especially given the pathetic judging. In general, people don't mind competing and putting the hard work in to earn what they get, but when they feel that they were not judged fairly and were not awarded fairly, they may make the decision to not participate at all.

    More like a realist based on the results.

    Sometimes that hype train quits running....lol

    Semifinals results

    I think 3A is the most competitive class this season, with 4A being a close second. It’s been my experience over the years that the semi finals judging results are like Forest Gump described life..... like a box of chocolates... you never know what you are going to get.

    Semifinals results

    After looking at the placements and having seen many of these 4A bands this season, I’m scratching my head with the judges results. Barren 15th ?? Hopkinsville 7th? Madisonville winning 4A west region and not making the cut? Anderson 3rd? Thought Anderson would have been 1rst or second, MAdisonville making the finals cut, and Barren placing better than Hopkinsville. Shocked with these results.

    No, the argument/discussion was stemming from the conversation where someone was trying to put some logic/justification as to why class 5A always gets to perform semifinals at the college stadium (and has since the inception of KMEA as far as I am aware).

    4A Semifinals @ Barren Co.

    I don't think that's gonna happen. Not this year. From what I have seen, Madisonville is way ahead of Grant this year. Keep in mind, Madisonville won 4A West Region. You think Grant, who came in 5th in the East is going to place over Madisonville? Not impossible, but I think highly doubtful.

    That actually should be directed to KMEA and the phrase be :safety over money.

    I don't think so. Not this year with all the classification changes.

    Did it ever occur to you that I might have chosen that forum name to be ironic? What some view as pessimistic, I view as being realistic. As far as this weather situation, I'm just telling it like it is. Folks, tomorrow's weather is going to flat suck !!

    LOL...........based on the weather forecast, I think it would be much easier to predict correctly.

    4A Semifinals @ Barren Co.

    Why is it that every time someone on this forum posts an opinion that is different than others, they get bashed? Why didn't you respond to the other poster like this when they said the same thing about Madisonville? Maybe you are from Harrison? LOL

    Yep, still isn't looking good at all. Forecast I just looked at on Intellicast shows 100% chance of rain during the day and 80% at night. Winds 15-25mph. Also if you look at the radar loop, there is a storm system the size of Texas south west of us headed directly at us. No way that's going to miss this area. No doubt about it, it's going to be a wet and windy miserable day for everyone involved. KMEA should really come up with some sort of contingency plans for weather situations like this. It's ridiculous to have thousands of dollars worth of instruments, electrical equipment and props out in this mess, not to mention the kids being soaking wet all day long and night. The fear they have of losing the almighty dollar isn't worth it.
