I'm curious to know the details/differences of the 'new' sheets?

I noticed Southport was working on their field last month when I was up in the area. Seems like they're changing it to turf.
Awesome! Now, maybe District will come back to Southport...oh, wait.....

For the most part, visual performance is an adjudication of the technical aspects of a performance, and the proficiency of the performers to perform the repertoire (composition) of the show. The judge will look for qualities of a performance, and watch the entire program crediting the performance level as well as the difficulty of what is asked in terms of achievement.
Interesting...I never thought about the 'visual effect' judge considering the musical aspects (at least how it relates to what is going on visually), but I guess that makes total sense. So there could be some basis on musicality as it relates to the visual that would affect the judging of this category? Visual in relation to music? (if that even makes sense) Does that hold true to Music Effect? Does the music being played in relation to what is being seen affect the music effect score?
I think GregM is pretty close here. I haven't seen VL and John Glenn this season so it's hard for me to predict beyond 5th or 6th. Without any bias to anyone, I'm hoping TL will make it through this weekend...I know they can play!
Mac's visual is really good...that's what I remembered from last weekend. TL had some great runs with the winds. Loved that! I also thought that Knox sounded really good musically. And Woodlan has some good visuals going on there! Somewhat surprised Knox didn't make it but that's the difference between a 'casual' fan and a musically trained judge. I can't wait for Semi-State...I just pray the weather will cooperate with us on that day!

We were at Ben Davis that day for an afternoon show...I got scorched. We had a later show at Carmel, and I remember finding some shade after a nice lady let me into the stadium early. I felt like I had spent the day on a south Florida beach, especially with all the reflective heat that aluminum bleachers create at a place like Ben Davis. Looks like this year we won't have to worry about excessive heat. Hopefully it will be DRY!

I can't wait to be able to see the northern bands (plus still waiting to see a lot of the south), but what tweaks my interest as much as anything is the resurgence of Mac. Some things seem so clearly defined at the moment. But as I always say, "Can’t wait for the north and south to go head to head"! The 'defining of lines' are what makes this activity so exciting to the fans in the stand! At least to this fan in the stand.
