State Championship Block Schedules

Actual seeding to be announced Monday, October 29th

Greetings.

The schedules for many of the State Championships are based on the number of USBands shows your band appears in, plus your highest score through October 28th.

The actual seeding for all shows will be announced on the morning of October 29th from the 50 yard line at Rutgers. We hope to have a live webcast.

With that in mind, and knowing that bands can add in to these events through the 22nd of October, this is preliminary but it does give to you a solid block of time within which you can figure buses and the like.

 

A few things:

  • We are aware of SATs, and we have sent reminders of the dates of this testing in all of our materials. Indeed, with larger shows, some class has to go on first, and many times this is the smaller bands. Such may not seem fair, and we do mix from time to time, but we hope that the times are something you have prepared for and your band is comfortable with.
  • We try to hold our awards ceremonies to two per evening. There is just too much time lost, and although you might welcome an additional awards presentation so that your band may leave early, the show simply stretches to a wild and inappropriate time.
  • There is always the possibility to move up in class. If you are a 3 A, and you do not like your position, you could move up to 4 A. A band cannot move down in size or class, but you may opt to move up in size and class – either one or the other or both. Please inform the office quickly if this is something you are considering.

We are thrilled to be hosting such an awesome series of events. Over 400 bands are participating in the State Championships series, and we are thrilled for both you and your students.
