Our high school concert band went to state contest last week and got straight ones on our stage performance and 2 ones and a two on our sightreading, which when put with our Superior at Regional Marching Contest means we got SWEEPSTAKES!!!. That's only been done 3 times in school history, and very few bands get sweepstakes in our area. We've really worked our butts off for this. My class (juniors) is really the heart of the band (there's only 3 seniors) and we vowed that we'd get at least 1 sweepstakes before we graduate and we finally did it! How are the rest of you band nerds' groups doin'?
