USBands: The National Championships

Here's a video in which Jon and Melissa talk through the changes to National Championships November 10-11. The block schedules are listed below.

Notes:

  • These times are estimates based on full shows for the two days of the USBands National Championships. There will be changes, but this will allow for bus schedules and planning.
  • On October 30, a preliminary seeding will be announced based on a formula that includes the number of events in which a band has participated and the scores they achieved. Using the scores from State Championships weekend (November 3-4), the final positions will be announced at 9:00 a.m. on November 5.

A Class Chamionships in 2013 - November 2-3 in Allentown, PA

We are looking at an expanded Yamaha Cup Series. MetLife could possibly become two events.
