Previous scores are nice and interesting to look at; however, as I have previously stated, it all comes down to who plays the best and works the hardest. Ayala has a great band; so does Mission and Upland. I have yet to see Clovis or Beyer but hear wonderful things about them as well. As far as I am concerned, first place is up for grabs and any one band has the ability to place above the other. Who wants it the most will, I believe, be the determining factor.

I am an Ayala dad; however, I want to congratualte all the kids in all the bands who go out and work hard everyday to do their best. May you all have a great show in Fresno and may the best band take home the championship.

Compare that to Ayala's score at Trabucuo Hills on 11.15.20003, you will see their score of 92.60 (926.00)
The largest fault in comparing these two scores lies in the two week gap between the two tournaments and by doing so, the assumption that neither band has progressed since then. The simplest way to estimate the winner in this instance would be to note the trends in score progression prior to that date and estimate a rate of score growth--still a faulty tool, but more accurate than the comparison that exists now.

All I can say is that with Logan out of the way, AAAA is up for a competition. As of now, I think anyone could take it. Good luck, and may the best band win!

Dont be so sure. It can happen that Mission or Upland could beat Ayala this weekend.

I'm assuming that are with the AyalaBAC!?!

If you are, don't be so pestimistic. Our BAC has to be the one that runs the show - OWN THE FIELD!

Do your best, as I have lectured my two daughter's who play the clarinets and then some. They are very veristile in musi ; Bass Clairinet, Flute, Trombone, Drums, Accoustic and Bass Guitar and Keyboard. As wel,l they have wonderful voices, espeially, Britta - Susie also has a beautiful voice.

Don't understimate your abilities, be confindent and sure of yourself and PRACTICE!


TheGoastOfAHS: Read my postsn on this particular message board. I've summed up the scores. We will be the champions or #2.

Of course, if some marchers mess up; slip, fall, etc. that could effect the outcome. But, you realize Ayala is a very great Marching Band, ie AyalaBAC.

Don't worry Be Happy!

Upland will not score higher than Ayala and as far as Mission Viejo, that was a fluke, we have aways scored higher than those two great bands. The exception was (Mission Viejo) this past saturday, 11.15.03

Hope this helps. And Please read my past post regarding scores in this mesge baord: You have nothing to worry abou,t except practice practice practice, OK?

I don't normally respond to messages but I felt this one demanded a response.
I am an Ayala Band Parent and I am not sure who 'CJ' is, but I assure you that 'CJ's posting does not reflect the rest of our Booster Organization. We all love our students and wish the best for them, but some parents take it all WAY to seriously. Let the students do what they love, March, and just sit back and enjoy the ride. We wish everyone lots of luck this weekend.

To all,

Please except my apologies for offending Anyone and EVERYONE. I'm sorry for being ignorant and cocky.

I suppose all this excitement has gotten to my head - using my fingers before my brain.

Fellow booster parents: Perhaps, I did not or do not represent our band in the best interest of our students, parents, director and staff.

I'm sorry

Although some people like to claim to speak for specific programs, let me assure you CJ does not speak on behalf of Ayala….I do, I am the director. It would be foolish for anyone to state with certainty the results of this weekend in either championship event. Predicting placements in an event is fun for those involved, but even the most sophisticated systems can’t predict which group of highly trained teenagers will have the best performance, and this is what it is all about. Don’t forget, it’s not about winning, but competing well. Let’s not let the pontification of adults affect the accomplishments of the students involved in this activity. All of the bands on the field have invested thousands of man-hours in their shows and deserve their ‘moment in the spot light’, and all of the bands in finals will be of the highest quality and any of them will be capable to taking the top spots. The honor is being on the field, and having the opportunity to have the ‘show of your life’. Good luck to all……

I remember seeing Clovis West high school last year at championships. I thought they had a great show last year, and I was really impressed by them!

I also loved Upland for their sound! They had such a sound last year!

But I'd have to say its Mission Viejo's year...for so long they have fallen second to Logan (not last year though). Now its their time to shine!
