Is this a Super Regional?

No, there were only 14 bands signed up for this regional so BOA allowed all of them into finals.

Why in the world don't more bands participate at this regional??? There are tons of high-profile HS Winterguard programs in CA, so you would think there would be more competetive marching bands too. Where was James Logan, Beyer, Clovis West, Mt Carmel, Clovis, Valencia, Dublin, Leigh, Palm Desert, etc. ???

Just because BOA moves into town, doesn't mean everyone should drop what they are doing and sign up. BOA is not the greatest thing since sliced bread...just an option.

*cough* Scores across regionals cannot be compared against one another. But for the sake of conversation, the top 5 scores at Houston ranged between 76.45 - 80.95.

You would be surprised... Some programs have great winter season programs, and not strong marching bands. Infact, many of the programs are like that.

I can tell you where a few of these bands were last night, because several of them compete in their local circuits. This regional was very early in the season, and most of the bands have already booked their events. Beyer for instance competes in their hometown invitational EVERY YEAR, and I don't think their director would have backed out for a Regional over 400-450 miles away, especially with $$$ issues. Beyer I am sure had just as much success winning their class and sweepstakes last night, as the last place band did at the BOA Long Beach show.

This issue about "where are these bands? and why..." have been addressed in the other Long Beach thread. As much as I love BOA competition, I totally understand why several of these bands didn't come... Perhaps they didn't even know about this regional, or perhaps they had made plans to compete or rehearse elsewhere. This regional was not in a central location by any means, and I know it is hard logistically for bands to come out to a show like this.

CA doesn't really need BOA.. it's BOA that needs CA. They have been doing their own thing for a loooonnnggg time. If this regional is kept for a few more years, then you will start to see the numbers rise. It's unfortunate that more of the WGI powerhouses weren't there, I agree.. but I can't say I blame them.

Personally, nothing would make me happier than to see James Logan's colorguard on the field at Grand Nationals so everyone can just shut their traps about certain other colorguards and *cough* dance lines being a standard of excellence. Heh, and don't even get me started about drumlines.

I *heart* California WGI units.

I think he was meaning to say -- far away in location? I believe they were from the El Paso area.

El Paso, Texas to San Antonio, Texas is 550 miles.
El Paso, Texas to Arlington, Texas is 620 miles.

I am surprised Bel Air finished so far down. Didn't they win or finish near the top at Phoenix a few years back?

This is a reply to the person who wrote about the Bel Air Band, yes they placed higher the 2 past years they been to Bands of America.
In 2001 they Placed 4th Place and in 2003 they Placed 2nd at Prelims and in Finals their was a tie between 4th and 3rd Place, so they awarded Bel Air again with 4th Place. They had really great shows both of those years, and In their TX region competitions they did really good topping many bands. This year wasnt so great for them because in my opinion their show selection was just plain bad, they lowered themselves, not only that they were behind this year with setting their drill, drill was done 2-3 days before BOA. Maybe better luck for them next year.

For those of you who are interested in watching some marching shows of Bands from El Paso, TX such as Bel Air, JM Hanks, Americas and Coronado..EPRocks.com is posting many shows starting tonight up until October 22,2005 as part of this New Mexico Tournament of Bands Month, all these videos will be from Past NMSU TOB Shows.
Oh by the way Bel Air and Hanks will be at BOA Long Beach tommorow. Good Luck to them, Hope they do well!
