Day of Festival Information

Page history last edited by Ray Linville 6 years, 7 months ago

Location  The Andover District Stadium is located directly to the west of Andover High School and Andover Middle School.  From Kellogg-US 54, turn north on Andover Road and travel to the 1700 Block.  From K-96,  go east after taking the 21st Street Exit.  Travel approximately 5 miles and turn south on Andover Road.  The stadium is ½ miles south of 21st Street on the west side of the road.  From the turnpike,  exit at the only Andover exit.  Drive west approximately one mile and then turn south on Andover Road.  The stadium is ½ miles south of 21st Street on the west side of the road.

 

Warm-up Facilities.   Each band will receive 20-25 minutes of warm-up time on one of two practice fields.  The fields are located to the NE of Andover High School (north of the baseball field) and directly east of Andover Middle School (south of the tennis courts).   If you are using the Andover Middle School practice field, please play towards the east – away from the stadium and towards the turnpike.   

 

From the warm-up field to the stadium:  From the north practice field, march southwest towards the new gymnasium on the south side of AHS and then follow the parking lot west towards Andover Road and cross just to the north of the pedestrian crosswalk.

 

From the south practice field, march north towards the new gymnasium on the south side of AHS and then follow the parking lot west towards Andover Road and cross just to the north of the pedestrian crosswalk.

Restrooms      The only public restrooms are available at the stadium.  PLEASE DO NOT allow students to enter Andover High School, Andover Middle School, or Cottonwood Elementary School as classes will be in session this day for our students.

 

Bus Parking will be west of Andover Middle School and along Allison Street (directly south of the stadium). 

 

Festival Performance Rules  The rating and critique of your performance will reflect the demonstration of your band’s musical sound, marching abilities, and the general effect of your show.  Your presentation should be no less than five minutes and not exceed 12 minutes in duration.  As you enter and leave the field you may use cadence.  Please use a drum tap only after you exit the field and as you approach the stadium before your performance time.

 

Stadium Entrance Bands will perform facing the west (towards the press box).  Bands will enter the stadium from the northeast corner (stage right) and should exit the stadium through the southeast gates (stage left) unless going directly into the stands.

 

  Awards will be presented at the conclusion of the festival.  Drum majors will be asked to line up on the sideline to receive the awards for your band.  If you are unable to attend until the festival is completed, please come to the front of the press box to pick up your materials.  You will receive judge’s critiques/taped comments and your participation plaque.  We will have four judges rating each performance.  We will drop the lowest score and average the remaining 3 for the final score.  Bands will receive a I, II, or III division rating.  Bands WILL NOT be ranked at this festival.  Percussion and Color Guard units will receive individual ratings that will NOT be averaged into the overall band rating.

 

Video-Taping

Performances will be recorded with a wide-angle HD Video Camera and shared with the directors after the festival.

 

On Field Announcement.  Your band will be announced as follows. 

  1.  Are the judges ready?  (Signal will be given from the judges table).
  2. Drum Major(s) John Smith & Jane Doe is your band ready?  (Drum Major Salute)

Lunch/Concession Stand The Andover Trojan Band Boosters will have the concession stand open with standard concession stand foods available throughout the festival.  We have 250 pizzas ordered for the day along with Nachos, hot dogs, soda, Gatorade, water, candy, etc.etc.  Your support of the Andover Band Boosters is appreciated – we do not have the band staff available to run this festival without our parent help and the festival entry fees do not cover the entire costs of hosting this event.
