Band Competition

Only it wasn't really. This weekend's competition at a nearby school was very small - many other schools had their homecoming yesterday, so only seven bands entered. And one ended up not being able to come*. Our Marching Band was the only one of its group size there. So the first place trophy isn't quite as sweet for the kids. However, we adults are always telling them that it's the SCORES that we're after, because it's the scores that will get them into the championships. So each our score needs to increase with each competition.

Then they weren't satisfied with that, either. At least, my two bandies aren't. The previous score was 81.25, this week's is 85.55. Goa'uld said that they really kicked butt and their score should reflect that.

My Girls. Never satisfied!

* This band from Lower Bucks, two + hours to our east, wasn't permitted to come. Their football game on Friday night had been cancelled due to the bad weather, and it was made up on Saturday. The school admin told the band that they had to stay for the game, and there was no way that they could've made it to the competition in time.

Sounds like they did great (no pun intended). 100 or bust!

There will be no recounts. Lower Bucks suffers the consequences.

I don't know what I'm saying; this is all Greek/Syrian/Islamic to me.

Sounds like it was worth attending.

Sorry I missed it. I'll be at the next one! I'm here for the band. And the bandies.

It sounds like good news. You are raising brilliant children with high standards, may God have mercy on your soul.
