    Contest of Champions @ MTSU 11/2

    Yeah, guys, this is way different compared to KMEA shows. Good luck getting your hands on a recap soon. If I'm lucky, and if you're all patient enough, I might be able to get a Prelims recap for you all tomorrow, but I can't make any promises. As far as finals, you'll have to find someone else. Edited to include Finals Scores which haven't been posted here yet. 1st. McGavock 91.1 - Grand Champion 2nd. Mt. Juliet 90.775 - Reserve Grand Champion 3rd. Franklin 90.1 - Honorable Mention 4th. Seigel 89.8 5th. Eastern 88.8 - Kentucky Governors Cup 6th. Science Hill 88.025 7th. John Overton 87.35 8th. Paragould 85.35

    At prelims I didnā€™t get to see McGavock but I saw Franklin Siegel and Mt Juliet. Mt Juliet was great and all but this result is surprising.

    KY Marching Discord

    As a member of both, there are aspects I like and dislike about both. I enjoy the organized feeling of KMN when looking through different shows and being able to read comments across different points in time. But the bickering is absolutely ridiculous. Some people have yet to learn to just keep quiet when they see something they disagree with, and it's this childish sense of arguing with anybody who says anything that you don't like that's led to the downfall of this place, not that it's ever been a perfect environment. In the Discord, most people are able to be affiliated with a band program without being insulted/degraded for their opinion, something I could never do here. Also after every competition, I'm glued to the discord trying to hear results. I would also like to point out that ARae's comment was particularly rude given the fact that Chase has done nothing but a great job in "managing" this community. You have my respect.
  5. I believe BOX5 took down all of those videos šŸ˜• it's one of my favorite NH shows... Really wish someone had a video

    Boom Mics

    I hear them a lot, but I was at 5A semis and Campbell and Eastern used them a lot. Personal preference but I really dislike them. I particularly disliked when the soloists were micd and I had to search for them because you can't just hear them. Like Campbell's trombone feature was great but it was distracting sitting in front of their speaker looking across the fiels trying to see them. Let the kids show their own use of dynamic shaping and not everything needs to be loud to be effective. Having more dynamic ups and downs is really a lot cooler than having mics blast out every moment of the show. And the wind can get caught badly and it's pretty distracting.
  7. Thanks for doing this, Unknown! I really appreciate it. I'm going to wear this result for a while, I'm quite proud of it.

    Weather for SMBC

    The forecast looks about the same from my source. Good news: We have seen the heaviest rain. Nothing gets worse than what went through this morning. There should be a lull at the start of semis, where at least the rain is still lighter. Looking at the radar, unless more rain/storms start to brew, Bowling Green should be cleared of the heavier rain in the next 3-4 hours. Bad news: Wind advisory issued for the area highlights gusts of 40-45 mph through the afternoon with the potential to gust to 50. Thunderstorms also possible later at night. I guess this is probably my last forecast post. So let's all go enjoy some quality bands and just hope for the best weather possible.

    Lafayette's cheering section could practically fill up WKU's stadium by themselves. If you ever try to sit up at the top during Finals you'll know how that goes

    Weather for SMBC

    Heaviest rain in the early morning and a lull in the early afternoon. Maybe we can get all of our semifinalists done before it picks back up again. With the second round of rain, later in the evening/night some thunder isn't out of the question, and much stronger wind gusts (25 mph+ possible). I'm not sure what the rules are but I'm assuming that thunder would at very least delay the performances due to safety concerns... I would hope so at least.

    This is the third thread with the same information

    If you didn't know, the weather is kind of my thingšŸ˜‰ so I've been watching this carefully. We could also be seeing wind gusts up to or above 20 mph. This with the rain and the cool temperatures spells bad news for Saturday. Obviously too far away to know details. We saw this shift in the forecast and there could be another. I'm sure hoping for the best but I can't see myself sitting in the stadium at night watching the bands in the heavy rain, and I can't think of any contests with this kind of weather that haven't been canceled. I would want nothing more than for it to keep going, a premature ending to the season would be disappointing for so many bands capable of making the big push this year. I would hope that semifinals should go on as usual, but the safety of the performers has to be priority #1 above anything else.

    Next weekend is Contest of Champions. The weekend after that is MSBA Championships. Then you get into BOA Grand Nationals. We've certainly had worse weather at state, and I hate to see it, but there's really not any alternative options that would work. Lots of stuff could still change but hopefully, most of the rain will occur in the morning. Still lots of uncertainties but there's a chance the rain lightens up for the afternoon.

    Regionals Combined Scores

    I think you're all taking this way too seriously. I have a document containing all KMEA scores for 6 weeks plus Regionals/Semis/Finals. Been doing it for a few years. It's not accurate, and doesn't help me make predictions, but it is fun to watch every band fluctuate and see each's growth. I understand that it doesn't mean anything but I still think it's cool.

    Well unless we have KMEA Finals at the Casey County Ag Expo we're going to be out of luckšŸ¤” Surely there's somewhere else in the state indoors. Right?
