Doug,We judge on the sheets that are posted on the State Fair Band Day website. I wrote those sheet. Those sheets dictate the criteria that we use to judge, and the characteristics and levels of reward for each performance level. If you look closely, there is NO place to give credit (or take away credit) for the size of the band. Good is good, and every size of group (small, medium, large) has its own advantages and challenges. Size does not matter to the judge, and we are no swayed or influenced by that. WE judge the quality of the performance, regardless of size. Bigger is not better....better is better. Always has been.Congratulations to all competitors yesterday for a fantastic prelim and final event at the state fair. It was incredible, and ALL of you should be proud of your performances.It was my honor to adjudicate your performances yesterday!Dr. Al
