    I've heard this as well.

    Oh look, he crawled out of his hole to comment on another one of my posts. I must REALLY trigger you. 😂

    This is good news. So far I've seen several bands already starting up. Keep up the social distancing and wear your masks, kids! Don't give them a reason to take your season away!

    So essentially, KHSAA will continue this fall.

    But...I do too...shhhh. Lol. Last year I saw a glimpse of the old GRC and I really liked it, and hope that they can continue with AJ Cook as well. I really hope those kids give him the opportunity to take them to greater heights. They've always had a really strong booster organization.

    Because the Government doesn't work with Apple and Google already to obtain the GPS locations from our phones. They do.

    You had to throw out 15 years didn't you? I feel ancient now. I really miss the Todd Moody GRC, and I'm hoping that AJ Cook can get them back to that level.

    The way I look at it is concert band will be much more volatile. Enclosed space, closer distance between each student, etc. I would be more worried about school itself than marching band. Lol.

    Pretty sure no forum member would say that, at least I hope they wouldn't.

    I honestly have no idea. I thought I was seeing a glimmer of hope when they returned to finals in 2007, but they were 10th in 2008. Maybe that was just a luck of the draw sort of year. Either way, I think bad direction after bad direction hurt them. AJ Cook had done wonders taking them from 12th, to 6th, to 3rd in his 3 years there.

    No, the mistake that Texas, Florida, and Arizona made was not taking action quicker and returning to normal too damn quick, but sure, we'll go with that.

    I think what they meant was that back in the 90s and early 2000s the Cumberland County band program fielded a 3A size band, with around 80 kids. Now there is around 30 I believe. The program, as a whole, used to be one of the larger ones in the state.

    Ah yes, because we are all experts on all things Covid-19 online. Lol. Fact of the matter is we are much more ahead of the rest of the United States. Boarders may be put on lockdown after the spikes this weekend, but regardless as long as high school football continues in the state so will marching band. Bands are taking every precaution possible per the requests of KHSAA, KMEA, and their local Board of Education. Water fountains are not to be used, 6 foot distances while not on the field and 3 foot distance while on the field, masks are to be worn off the field and in transport to and from competitions, student, staff, and volunteer temperatures are to be taken when they arrive, after lunch, and after supper and anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher is to be sent home immediately. Hand sanitizer is passed out regularly, and hand washing is mandatory. As everyone who is actually a professional in the healthcare field has been saying, wash our hands, wear masks, and we will be fine. So with that said, I will be stepping down off the soap box.
