Flight II starts at 7:30pm this year. Our actual performance time depends on how we finish the MCBA season (average of our MCBA scores from Grant, Westshore, and our own invitational). Ten bands compete in each flight and are given 15 minutes to get on the field, perform, and get off the field. Band performances are ordered from low to high score. This means we will likely perform at 9:30 or 9:45pm. Awards will follow. If you think you want to spend the night in Detroit, be aware that the kids will arrive home around 3am. You are allowed to pick up your student after awards if you'd like them to stay with you. This should be arranged with the band directors ahead of time.
Once again, if you are thinking about going to Indy, you will want to secure a hotel soon. We perform on Thursday and again on Saturday if we make semi-finals. The semi-finalists are announced on Friday night. The band will watch the finals and leave Indy around 11pm Saturday night to drive home.
