Please understand I'm most naive. Define "BOA-caliber judging" for me.
:oops:
Quality music educators from across the nation, judging on sheets that are very, very similar.

The MBOS, I believe, does not use California-based judges (to help eliminate bias) and flies in judges from across the country to judge their shows.

>>>The MBOS, I believe, does not use California-based judges (to help eliminate bias) and flies in judges from across the country to judge their shows.<<<

At the first show alone, 5 out of 9 judges are from CA, many from southern CA.

>>>... judging on sheets that are very, very similar.<<<

Wasn't there a discussion about a show being cancelled because their sheets were "very, very similar" to another circuit's?

Don't get me wrong.... I'm glad that marchingmusicenthusiast is happy with the circuit he is involved in. Let's just make sure that the comments we make are A) factual, and B) not a 'slam' on another organization.

I'm a huge fan of both MBOS and BOA. Did I say something that led you to believe otherwise?
