This was the last big show of the year. It’s my opinion, and it’s incredibly personal to me, so it’s most definitely skewed is that this show would have won one of those medals up for grabs at state.
I haven’t had the opportunity to see the entire show. I was sick for a bit and missed a couple of Saturday’s. Then the wide was sick.
Then the band had several kids down and sick with covid, and others were quarantined due to close contact so they had to miss state competitions.
The only regret I feel is for the seniors. They lost two years out of this with the tornado and covid.
But they all came across as supportive of the younger kids and told them how impressed they were and happy that they all came together. They’re family.
All in all, not a bad year.
Sometimes you can’t count wins in trophies and medals.
These kids are the North Central Silver Knights Marching Band. Two of them are mine by blood, and my wife has pretty much adopted the rest of them. By no fault of my own, I have a lot of kids I watch over in a way. And I could not be prouder.
