    New KMEA Guidelines

    I see and understand both sides of the argument bc I struggle with what side to come down on at this point. My practical side says obviously we are still treading in dangerous waters with virus. I am in favor of masks, social distancing, being cautious of being out in public unless necessary, protecting those around me by doing my part etc. The selfish side of me however is at this phase: I'm tired of doing my part, following all the rules and guidelines, telling myself and my family we must stay in until , well I dont really know until when, while it seems the majority of states and people aren't doing their part and causing the spikes which just co tinues to punish those of us who are doing everything that has been asked. So where does that leave me? I dont really know honestly but I would like now the opportunity to be allowed to start living my life again openly, following the guidelines. Allowing the season to happen will have risks but at this point I want the choice. If you're not comfortable with your child participating in the season then simply dont let them. If we are allowed a season then follow whatever rules and guidelines we are given. Like I said practical me and selfish me see both sides and as a fairly responsible adult I beleive i can merge the 2 and find a happy medium.

    New KMEA Guidelines

    So, basically turn ourselves into OMEAπŸ˜‚ I understand all sides of everyone's arguments bc they all some validity to them. I personally don't have an issue with kmea doing what ever they can to salvage some sort of season for the kids. Will it be perfect? Nope. But I will take what I can get and so will the kids. Of course $ is a factor for KMEA and always will be. That's reality. I also agree that yes, as a whole, few seemed upset when concert season was canceled and yes much music education is taught there. However, although us true musicians and music lovers may be the majority here on the forums, in the real world we are the minority. Marching band is fun, exciting and competitve and that's why it brings in the $$. Its why after every state comp we all congregate here to fight to the death on who should have won. We can see past the flash and gimmicks that transfixed an audience and say yes that was cool but the music performance was subpar. There is plenty of music education being taught on the field and the proof is listening to a group at the beginning of season compared to the end season. There is no easy fix for this season and I cant be the only one who never guessed she might have to argue not only points of music and visuals but now possibly internet band width. I mean what would that judges tape sound like? " Beautiful tone coming from the mello section and great technique battery. Visually a very thought provoking show which I would give high marks to but unfortunately had to deduct a couple of tenths due to buffering " πŸ˜‚ At least we have something new to argue about y'all! Lol.

    I agree with this. The guidelines are well meaning and appreciated by me and also probably serve more as a legal protection for kmea in the event anything should happen and that's understandable to me. 1A-3A can probably follow them easily. 4A gets harder and it becomes almost impossible for 5A especially for Lafayette and the beast that is MC. How do you socially distance a group of 280 off the field? It would be worth going to a practice of theirs to see it in action. However, if you've ever seen where they practice there won't be room for anyone else but their band bc it will take the field and parking lot next to it to accommodate thatπŸ˜‚ I wish all the groups the best of luck and will just say right now to the staffs of all programs the extra work they will be putting now due to all this is greatly appreciated!

    I would take this down. Posting a public reveal is one thing and that's not what this is. Let's be respectful of the programs. I don't believe this link was for the public.
