So now that the final scores to count towards championships are in, lets hear some 5a and 6a predictions. Also, its nice if you explain your reasoning for your predictions. Thanks :D

Hmmm...

1. Rancho Buena Vista
2. Etiwanda
3. Chino
4. Rancho Bernardo
5. El Dorado
6. Arcadia
7. Vista
8. Diamond Bar
9. Walnut

This is going to be one of the closest competitions of the year. For once, I think the SCSBOA "monsters" (Etiwanda, RB) have a less likely chance of getting 1st. Obviously, everyone has heard about RBV's success this year, and I hope they will pull it off. But actually, everyone is so close to one another that it's really hard to say who will win. Etiwanda and RB still have a great chance to win, don't get me wrong. But then you got RBV winning big. Then you have Chino, El Dorado and Arcadia right behind those three, and all of their scores are EXTREMELY close. Do you realize that if RBV, RB, Chino and Arcadia were to have been in the same competition this past Saturday that their scores would be hairlengths apart from each other? And even still, don't count out Vista, DB or Walnut--they may turn some heads as well. :wink:

Even though those are my predictions, I don't think they'll stand. I'm definitely not counting out Chino, El Dorado or Arcadia of victory in two weeks. But we'll just have to wait and see until then. This is getting more and more exciting!

Those cumulative scores are completely unreliable though since the scores all came from different times in the season. However, you can look at the placings of bands at competitions to form a sort of hierarchy of 6A bands. That being said, here are my predictions:

1. Etiwanda
2. Rancho Bernardo
3. Rancho Buena Vista
4. Chino
5. El Dorado
6. Arcadia
7. Diamond Bar
8. Vista

High Music: Etiwanda
High Visual: Etiwanda
High GE: Etiwanda
High Colorguard: Rancho Bernardo
High Percussion: Etiwanda

Only my predictions, so don't get too bent out of shape by them. :D

Hmm...
It does appear they are in SCSBOA...and I assume they are going if they are in the SCSBOA Championships.
I didn't know they did other than SCSBOA

Rancho Bernardo is an SCSBOA band, which makes sense since they do both parade and field. :wink:

SCSBOA championships

Just because a band competes in SCSBOA does not make a band eligible for championships. The director must have applied to go back in September.

Some of the bands that people have been predicting to do well at championships are not going. They stop marching after Arcadia. Check their web sites.

I hate being a small but semi-good band

Post by Mattjs15 » Thu Nov 13, 2003 2:24 pm

:( My fresh year we had a great director. We had the Mummy Show and we went to TOC. Then he left at the end of the year and we got a crappy ass director that i personlly hate and so does a lot of other people. We were in 3a,then when she came we went to 2a. The year after that we went to 1a. Do you see a pattern. I do. Now that we are in 1a we are in 3rd place in the division but since we are so small we are not recognized. It hurts to see so many posts about the bands for the Championships that we are going to and not see our name anywhere any it. This is JURUPA VALLEY. We may be small, we may start of every year crappy but by the end we pack a mighty punch and show everyone else what we are all about.

PS. We are the ones in the crappy Pirates constumes doing the Pirate's of the Carribean. Good movie= Crappy show but we can do it. I hope
The Pirates are coming to get YOU!!!

:roll: Jeez... maybe it's the upperclassman attitude that causes the band to diminish. Charter Oak used to be huge too, but the upperclassmen's attitude when we got a new director really ruined what could have been a positive change . If you really want to be a good band, support your band director and work hard.
