    New KMEA Guidelines

    Theoretically, let's say there are only 2 or 3 contests for the entire Fall. Bands aren't allowed at games and there are no town parades. Is marching band still worth it? What if those contests are 4 hours away and you have to double the amount of buses? By your state MEA making this tough call, it actually takes pressure off of the local director. Now, they can say KMEA is the bad guy. If there was still SMBC going on, they would have to make that decision...either way a huge percentage of your families would be upset with.

    New KMEA Guidelines

    Learning to play your instrument continues without a competitive outlet, but football doesn't really function without games. They HAVE to attempt the season. I do expect some districts to start saying "no sports here" and gradually, there will be some sad state playoffs with only half of the schools attending.

    New KMEA Guidelines

    The question is really this: What will a school's policy on quarantine after a positive case? If the policy is that everyone in that class/team/ensemble (including teachers) must stay home for 14 days, there won't be anything going on. With that policy, schools will be at 50% attendance by mid-September. Once those policies start getting released, everything will be understood.

    I was thinking of Caldwell County in particular, the spectacle football is a big deal there. What places lost marching band in the 2010s?

    As long as there is football, there will be a band program.

    Corona Talk

    In person school will start back in January when a vaccine or full testing is available. Whatever corps are still around in 9 months will make up DCI and that will be our next marching experience.

    Woodwinds in DCI?

    This would be the end of drum corps. Just like curvy-artsy drill. And 3 valve bugles. And b-flat horns. And trombones and french horns. And putting the guard into the visual focus. And integrating the battery into the drill. And electronics in the pit. And using scoresheets that reward content. No one will go see shows anymore.

    Somehow this has become a Tresona topic, but you know... I wonder how many of the Boomers and Boomer-wanna-be's that complain about Tresona are also MAGA hat-wearing "capitalism is beautiful/profit justifies ethics" bros? Also, let me just go ahead and apologize about that super-long sentence.

    Yeah, Ben just said that, duh. Also, he remembers when you had to pay to attend local contests in Kentucky.

    Murray is too far west and from looking at google, there isn't even an interstate going there. I didn't think the capacity was that small, though. Pictures that I've seen make it look to seat 15,000 or so.
  11. Yeah, that's pretty sad. If you're not even getting a 50 in the performance captions by November...might be time to reevaluate.

    What exactly is my "other thing coming"? Except for 5A, my estimate of 20-25 looked pretty good. If half of the non-SMBC bands came back, I'd actually be spot on! Unless you are in the mountains or past Kentucky Lake, that travel wouldn't eliminate anyone. Most of those groups are already going to Hopkinsville or Richmond for regionals...another hour wouldn't change anyone's season. Unless you are in Bowling Green (CoC) or NKY (MSBA Championships) going out of state is actually farther. The drives to Murfreesboro & Kings Mills aren't exactly traffic-free.

    Or, Regionals could just be "semi-state" with all 20-25 bands in each class. Then 2 weeks later, you have finals with the Top 8 in an all-day event. Semi-State would be at large HS stadiums along the I-65 corridor.

    Yikes. Class A, B. Green has no problem throwing out those sub-caption ties!
