On The Road: Avon Comes To Texas

Dec 13, 2017

When band directors sign up their programs for BOA contests, distance, time, and student experience are some of the most influential reasons for selecting which show they want to attend. But cross-country trips are typically reserved for bands making their way to Grand Nationals in Indianapolis. 

However, for the Avon Marching Black and Gold, Lucas Oil Stadium is only about 30 minutes away. So, BOA Grand Nationals are essentially a home show for them. 

So in the fall of 2017, Jay Webb, Director of Bands, decided to take them on an epic trip over 1,100 miles to the BOA San Antonio Super Regional.
