WAIT...RSOS is marching 135+ instruments??? I'm not being funny, man...just asking, seriously. I commented on FB with one of the Asso. BDs there...she stated the band is smaller but hasn't lost a thing...which is good that y'all still on the same track, NOT regressing. :thumbsup:

The author of this thread posted that they are counting INSTRUMENTS NOT dancers, flags, and DMs.

Appears they are going by size of band and not conference for voting.
Group 1 (128 or less)
Group 2 (129-160)
Group 3 (161+)
Doesnt count auxiliary or drum majors. Just instrumentalists.




So size really does matter.....to Honda :roll:

I'm surprised this event is still around.

Does anyone know if the people that run Honda BOTB -- that marketing / PR firm in Charlotte -- read this forum?

At the end of the day, it's their decision, and we really have no way of knowing if they really stuck to their guns on this new process.

Found 'em!

Urban Sports & Entertainment. Hit them up and ask for NCAT to be put in the correct category.

Well, they've had the same website since I graduated from Cookman in 06. I wanted to work with them soooo bad and remember lurking through their site and reaching out to see if they had openings. Had forgotten their name, but I do remember the site.

Eff politics. This is about that almighty DOLLA! Is it safe to assume that as of lately Honda hasnt been seein major ROIs, so this new process will basically assure that they'll be gettin a huge bang for their buck now (or again)???



Yeah that too. Honda has been doing well lately. I remember some years ago folk were on here talking about how Honda wasnt sellin out anymore.... That's hardly the case. They have tweaked and tweaked and are finally getting this thing to pack out and turn a profit and put on a good show.


It's the business of business.


I'd argue Honda is not making a profit with this BOTB, sellout or not...they are almost certainly "losing" money...the Honda BOTB is a marketing campaign. A great big commercial.

OK so yall just gonna ignore the 800lb gorilla in the living room...

THIRTY BANDS in the 1st category and only THREE in the 2nd category? Obviously the number criteria for category 2 is much too narrow. Why divvy them up in a manner that creates such an imbalance? :confused:

Honda/USEG will select the final four bands based on, but not limited to:

Showmanship
Social Media Buzz
Years of previous participation in the Celebration Tour


I call shenanigans. LOL.


Oh so in other words,







Politics.


:lol:


I can't wait to see them next week in Cleveland! :hall:

They are roughly the same size as last year, more balanced. But they are NOT 125 instruments...More like 100..
