Specifically, Lakewood Ranch High School in Bradenton, where assistant director Ron Lambert has been the band director for the past sixteen years.   

Didn't Boston use this same school for auditions/camps in previous years?

I can't confirm, but considering Ron Lambert was the BAC assistant director in 2017, 2018 and 2019, it seems likely.

For several years.  Ron Lambert,  prior to his current position with Cadets was with Boston as Asst. Director for at least a couple of years.  He was the LR connection/contact as Band Director.  A great guy and Cadets are lucky to have him.  Best wishes to him and Cadets.

OR it could be that the Cadets have tons of FL based people on their instructional and captions team. Boston doesn’t own FL (yet)

They have camps in Texas now   There was one in Florida last year. I think it was in Jupiter.

So you can't do it, but you can do it. Got it.

Yes, and I am telling you that this is not nearly as difficult as you think. It isn't difficult at all. I could have formed three corporate entities today during lunch. Your article relates to the business difficulties, not the legal difficulties, which again -- not significant.

My experience with Varsity and its parent is that they'd want to own it.

Sorry, but you just don't know the facts that you are speaking about. 

1 - What don't you understand about cannot just "swap" status?  You have to DISSOLVE a 501(c)(3).  That means there is nothing left to "swap."  Law doesn't leave gray area to that question. 

2 - Of course you can form a corporate entity easily and quickly.  However, you cannot for a Not-for-profit corporate entity with 501(c)(3) status quickly and easily.  Everything involved in forming, running, and yes ending those are vastly different than a regular for-profit corporation.  The legal difficulties are significant when you begin winding down a non-profit - and having to get sign-off approval of your state's AG is not a "business difficulty" - that is as legal as it gets.  I would love to see an example of what you claim to be a case where a for-profit purchased a non-profit outright.  

3 - Does Varsity currently operated competitive events itself?  Or are they in the businesses of selling products to participants and organizers of competitive events?

Couldn't agree more.

A municipality I work with purchased a "historic" (based on age) house.

Over the years it had some renovations done,so it couldn't automatically go on the

National Historic Register.

Their original intent was to form a 501(c)(3).

Complicated and time consuming doesn't begin to describe the process.

Eventually they had to give up the idea and sold the property.

Answer to #3 is Yes. They run cheer competitions across the country. If I am correct they are hosting a Color Guard show in Fla. either this or next month. I Know they were trying to organize some independent CG shows under the Varsity name
