<stupid question deleted due to mistake reading the grid before the final lineup, giving the wrong impression about whether El Dorado was competing at SCSBOA>

But El Dorado is 9th rank on the grid. Are they not performing after all?

I believe the top three for 6A will be :

Gold - Mt. Carmel
Silver - Arcadia
Bronze - Chino

They are all very close but Mt. Carmel has previously edged out both bands this season. Their visual captions are very strong. Arcadia has powerful music and marching this year. Chino is weaker than last year in visuals but puts up amazing music too. However, depends on the order of performance and how good of a show they put up this Saturday. Good luck to all bands competing!

Congratulation to Mt Carmel for their 3rd straight gold medal. Clearly they figured out the marching formula to woo the Adjudicators. As a spectator, I don't see it. I feel Mt Carmel's show for the 2nd straight year is not that entertaining. Obviously I'm not an SCSBOA judge but if entertainment value was a judging category; Rancho Bernardo, Chino, Etiwanda and Arcadia would rack up that score. With the insanely high scores given out last night maybe Mt. Carmel should try the WBA or BOA circuits. I'm not trying to ruffle any feathers. I understand that the kids work extremely hard. This is nothing toward the kids. This is just my observation as a spectator.

Manny:

My original prediction placed RB 1st, MC 2nd, Arcadia 3rd. After watching both MC and RB for the 3rd time, I changed my prediction to MC 1st, RB 2nd, Arcadia 3rd.

From a WOW factor, I thought RB had the best show. But in my own personal analysis of the top shows, MC was just the cleanest all around taking into consideration how "tight" musically and marching they were. The one chance I did get to see Arcadia, they were fantastic - but a band that large would be difficult to be as clean as a 180 piece band.

Mount Carmel did have a chance to compete against Ayala in 2015. Head to Head, Ayala beat them by almost 3 points, which is a huge margin. This was at an SCSBOA Show at Mira Mesa. I think MC is good, they just don't do everything what I believe WBA and BOA would value in terms of judging.

Predictions
2A: Looking to medal for the first time is University City. I personally haven't seen any other 2A Bands, but I'm rooting for them. I predict that they'll medal this year.

3A: I got a chance to see Aliso Niguel at Poway High. Wow! From that experience alone, I predict that they'll be amongst the medalists.

4A: My oldest kids band competed in this division for the past 4 years at champs until this year when they moved to a larger division. Hart is ALWAYS the one to beat. When we saw them 2013-2016, Hart won every time. That tiny band is amazing. Warren is also very strong every year.

5A: I can't wait to see Chino Hills. I was very surprised to hear that they were doing SCSBOA Champs this year instead of WBA. It's an interesting shakeup. There are a couple big groups that moved down from 6A in Thousand Oaks an Roland. Del Norte and and West Ranch have moved up from 4A. From the scoring, it seems that Chino Hills and Valencia will be top competitors, with the 5A other regulars also doing well (Vista and Westview).

6A: Going to the San Diego comps, I'm able to see many of the great 6A Bands. Chino competed at Poway this year and Arcadia always competes at Mt. Carmel. Back in the Medal mix is Rancho Bernardo. RB has some very Bluecoats moments in their show this year and is extremely high in GE. In an upset, I see RB taking the top spot. My Alma Mater, Mt. Carmel may have something to say about that. They are pretty dang clean in Music and Marching - will the judges value that or the wow factor of RBs show? Arcadias 2 drumlines on the field at the same time is a site to behold The arrangement of firebird is very drum corps-like and the volume - that's an in your face marching band.

SCSBOA sets the accomplishment bar very, very low in visual performance. Cleanliness is prioritized, and Mt. Carmel always scores well because they march an incredibly easy visual program that they get very clean.

In WBA or BOA, Mt. Carmel would hold their own musically but get demolished on visual sheets that give a lot more credit for demand and difficulty.

You've have been given false information.

I stand corrected. Once I discovered I was wrong (would have been helpful to check the grid more carefully), I figured I'd get a well-deserved smackdown and no one else would take it seriously after that.

El Dorado, I apologize for not checking more carefully, then neglecting to edit/delete once I realized I was mistaken. Very embarrassed.

:sorry: :frustrated:

By the way, I really enjoyed your performance last night at SCSBOA/Arcadia.
