"Virtual" how?  Like virtual for viewers?  Or also for participants?  

My understanding is that bands submit a video from their home field and the video is live streamed by the host. but I’m not 100% on that it’s just what I heard through the grape vine. 
 

the thing that disappoints me is if this proves to be successful why couldn’t KMEA get it together enough to do this?

Can you imagine the grief KMEA would get with the almost inevitable technological/streaming issues and critique of the online 'judging'? People will be a lot more forgiving of some third party... "Well, at least they tried". As opposed to "KMEA ruined it!".

I appreciate the effort but......I don’t see this being successful

With as many bands that have called it a season, I am inclined to agree with you.

Oh God, please hire Box5 for this.  I need this.

Box6 doesn't exist. Or it may be a weird Hungarian porn site. I'm not Googling it.

Please...no. Lol. I don't want to pay $60 for 10 bands at best. Lol.

You can blame the committee for voting it down because "It's just not feasible". One director in particular went on a long winded tantrum about it, who is a middle school director and has nothing to do with marching band. Not sure why they are on the MARCHING BAND committee, but whatever.

Lot of people are in agreement about that individual. I feel sorry for those that have had to deal with it.

KMEA has proven they won’t do anything once they encounter a barrier. Their answer is to just cancel it. Proof being with the state conference and all-state already being cancelled. It’s truly maddening.

Someone has to be the rep.. 

 

So glad I am not a part of that world anymore.. 

Someone has to be, yes, but shouldn't one of the requirements be that you field a marching band in order to be a chairperson on the MARCHING BAND committee? Currently, I'm unaware of any middle school marching bands in KMEA, they all fall under the high school division in Kentucky.

Any KMEA member is eligible to be elected to serve on committees. The district 1 membership elected Mrs. Stribling to that post and they have every right to do so.
