Hi there,

I wanted to make sure that each and everyone of our directors in the district are receiving e-mails and monthly newsletters from the State Office.  If not, please call the State Office immediately to let them know!!!

adjudicator recordings

Maybe it was just my MS, but one judges recording was 1:11 min long, all blank, another was 13:45 of silence and Julie Matthews recording was 13 minutes of crowd noise and as a band plays a chord on stage, not mine, John Taranko starts to announce the band and the recording ends.

Hello All,

We are currently revising our band booster bylaws and need great examples to develop them from.  If any of you have a well developed set of bylaws for your booster organization would you mind emailing a copy to my school email address?   Thanks!

The adjudicator evaluation is a very important part of my job ~ specifically when April 1st is right around the corner!  I am already in the "planning mode" for our adjudicator panels for next year --- BUT, I need your help!

Please email your thoughts about the B & O adjudicators, no need to submit the form, but your thoughts, good and bad, are of extreme importance.
