Fairfield Tournament of Champions cancelled

Post by JCYS » Thu Nov 15, 2018 12:29 pm

I have rec'd word from the Director at FHS and the NCBA that due to extremely low air quality the TOC has been cancelled for this year. I do not have any word on the Lincoln ROC in Stockton. :(

Lincoln has also been cancelled. For health concerns as well as out of respect for the crisis that California is in. Best wishes to those who have been affected by the fires.

Wow, how unfortunate. I think this is the first time both get canceled. Are there any other NCBA events getting canceled too? Be safe everyone.

TOC & ROC mark the end of the NCBA fall marching season.
Seems like the last fall event for 2018 was the Central California Band Review in Merced.

Only other NCBA "fall" event might be the Oakland Christmas Parade but I don't know if they still adjudicate that.

Sometimes that how life goes!
But we march onward.
And send our prayers while helping our fellow man in need :)

If you planned on attending one of these fine events and still have the urge to see one more marching competition, I would encourage you to go down south to watch the Arcadia Festival of Bands this Saturday. Very talented groups. If you go, plan to get there early with your chair...the sidewalk fills up fast.

When I was a senior in HS I watched the Arcadia review (then known as the West Arcadia Band Review) from the gutter of the street (I got there late...nowhere else to sit). In the rain. With water flowing over me. Totally worth it. :D
