Each band will be allowed 20 minutes for set-up, field entrance, performance, and field exit
*Playing members including percussion.
*Bands may enter a higher classification.
After the order of performance has been determined by a drawing, all the necessary information will be e-mailed to each band director.
Bands will be judged in the festival format with three band judges and separate judges for drum major, majorette, dance team, color guard, feature twirler, and percussion. In order for an auxiliary unit to be judged, the group must perform throughout the majority of the show (at the judges’ discretion).
A majorette line consists of three or more majorettes. Fewer than three majorettes will receive a festival rating; however, they will not be considered for Best in Class awards. Feature twirlers will be judged separately from majorette lines.
Directors will be furnished recordings of adjudicators’ comments and score sheets at the conclusion of the awards ceremony.
