  1. "In 2016, Vista Murrieta won over previous champion Saratoga." Clovis West won in 2016, not Vista Murrieta.

    1. Good point. I got it right in the sidebar and the header image! So 2/3?

  2. Putting both California regionals on the same date further confirms that BOA doesn't understand(?) or support(!) California Bands. Music For All...

  3. Agreed with whitedj2002. Why is there 2 major regionals on the same date? It's depressing to see this kind of politics in such a fantastic activity. Maybe that's why WBA seems to be a growing organization on the west coast.

  4. It's actually not politics at all. What BOA shared with me is that there are currently 3 Regionals in the Western U.S. In order to have adequate judging panels at all shows, some compromises have to be made. Additionally, the first year of the San Jose Regional it was held the same day as the Utah Regional. Last year, the Utah Regional was the same day as the SoCal Regional. They are going to rotate it each. BOA wants to support bands from the west coast. Lastly, you have to account for football stadium schedules. When the quality venues are available, is when BOA will schedule a Regional. They were very accommodating to my program traveling all the way out to Grand Nationals in 2015. There's a lot of factors that go into building a schedule.
