I have been trying to keep track of what states and band organizations have announced the cancellation of their season using a different thread.  I though I might as well start a single location for tracking.  Please respond and I will continue to update this first announcement as we learn of cancellations. I will add circuits as well if you can provide them to me.

I think Iowa, Mississippi, Virginia, and Louisiana are additional state systems that have cancelled so far. I heard PA cancelled, but can not find it anywhere.

Updated for states.  I don't want to dig down to specific schools at this time.  I hope that helps.
