Marching competition season is under-way, and the Camdenton Band is off to a great start with the band taking 1st place in Class 2A with the best general effect in class 2A. Come to Bob Shore Stadium at 6:15 on Friday, September 22nd (before the homecoming football game) where the band will perform “Tickled Pink”, a show that will continue to evolve and grow throughout the season. This show has been taking the Camdenton football field by storm just as it took Powder Springs Georgia by storm. In Powder Springs, the band also took fourth place overall against classes 1A, 2A, 3A, and 4A. Bands from Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia competed in this early season competition.
Students, staff, and parents are drawn to Bands of America (BOA) competitions for several reasons:
1.Competing in BOA competitions pushes bands to a high level musically and visually.
2. The bands competing at BOA competitions are some of the best in the country.
3.Bands compete against each other while also supporting and enjoying each band. One band member commented that at these competitions, students wish competing bands good luck when they enter the field and tell them good job as they leave.
At BOA Powder Springs, it was hard to watch one band struggle with their sound system prior to competing knowing that the delayed start would bring a large scoring penalty. The level of work that goes into these shows makes everyone want each band to have a good run when competing. Students also love the full retreat. Full retreat occurs when all finals bands come onto the stadium field for finals results and then scatter throughout the stadium to meet members of other bands after the results are completed. Enjoy the pictures and video of full retreat at BOA Powder Springs.
