Location for SCSBOA 6A

Post by peapod » Tue Nov 17, 2015 12:30 am

Last I heard, directly from Arcadia, the field tournament was being held at East LA College instead of the usual Citrus College. Has it changed back to Citrus? *crossing fingers*

Edited to add: I did see that Citrus was listed on the events page, I'm just skeptical because I heard a good reason why it would NOT be moved back once it was scheduled at ELAC.

You're right, Arcadia held its field tournament at ELAC last year, but as far as I know, it is being held at Citrus again this year for championships.

That had me confused for awhile too. When I set up the listings in the WoP Events calendar I went with location listed on Arcadia's website instead of what SCSBOA had listed. But now Arcadia's website has changed the location to Citrus College, so when I added the performance line ups for the 6A Championship field show the other day I also updated the location. So I believe we can call it official now, the 6A show is at Citrus College.

I believe Citrus College can't confirm the date earlier because of potential football playoffs, so ELAC is booked early to at least have a venue for the date. (ELAC is still under major construction around the stadium area, so they we're OK with not having the event).

Citrus College was going under some renovations that were completed ahead of schedule. East LA allowed Arcadia to move the 6A championships back to Citrus College with no penalties, etc.

Thank you, everyone! Citrus College's stadium is a great venue every year for the Arcadia Festival of Bands (and for SCSBOA this time). I'm glad to hear they could work this out.

Citrus. I spoke with Arcadia's director on Tuesday and he confirmed. They used to hold DCI shows here. Good sounding stadium.
