  1. How do the rankings change so much this early in the season? There has been 3 BOA competitions so far, and only a couple of the top 30 have competed in them. What am I missing?

    1. I imagine videos that have come across the editors attention, early stuff.

    2. Because many of these groups still compete in individual shows outside of BOA as well so those results are taken into consideration as well.

  2. Heard from one of the judges at the Owasso show that Bentonville is scary good this year with a very creative and unique show. Don't be surprised if they medal in St. Louis.

    1. Definitely good with a unique show. Will be great once it's finished and clean. I think they'll be in medals bubble in STL. It will pretty much be between BA, Union, Blue Springs, Owasso and Bentonville in my opinion. We shall see!

  3. I saw that Center Grove was in the Top 10 alphabeticle, what place did you exactly put them?

  4. I think if they wanted to reveal that then they would make a top 40 instead of 30, no?
