Please just stop. Please.  

So -- This year, Macy's Parade will be an unabashed shill for Broadway and other celebrities? Do I have that right? If so, I think I'll pass   (Sorry! It's BC -- before coffee.)

Wow, just wow.  No one is happy about these cancelations.  "You come here often?"  "I bet you're one of those big, strong, & tough 'not my virus' kind of guys?"   "Can I buy you a tall glass

Trying to fill in some of the blanks, to the best of my ability...

AK - no competitions (only 1 competitive band, Colony HS)

AR - both Bentonville and Bentonville West have cancelled their competitions. ASBOA state events are still on as far as I could tell.

CT - waiting for USBands

DE - I believe only TOB holds competitions in Delaware, and they've gone virtual for 2020.

DC - no competitions

HI - Oahu actually has a small marching band circuit with four or five shows. I can't find anything official, but based on a couple of band websites and Facebook pages (Mililani HS and Maui HS) it looks like the state will be virtual only.

ID - waiting for USBands

MA - NESBA season cancelled. Waiting for USBands.

MN - In a holding pattern, but as of late June the YIM Championships were still scheduled. Can't find any updates about local competitions.

MT - no competitions (only 1 competitive band, Bozeman HS)

NV - northern Nevada shows are run by the Sierra Nevada Band Series (SNBS). Their season has been cancelled. http://envisionarts.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=620:snbs-2020&catid=80&Itemid=262

NV - southern Nevada shows are run by the WBA and MBOS circuits. WBA's season has been cancelled, and I would assume MBOS's season is cancelled too, since everything on the website is talking about spring 2021 winterguard scheduling.

NH - no competitions that I know of. Only one or two competitive bands (Salem HS and... ? Alvirne HS doesn't compete last I checked. Londonderry HS has a huge band but only does parades/exhibitions)

OR - NWAPA runs the only shows in Oregon, and their season is cancelled.

RI - waiting for USBands

SD - one USBands show and a handful of independent shows which, as far as I can tell, are all still on as scheduled. The calendars and Facebook pages of major SD bands like Sioux Falls Lincoln and Brandon Valley appear to be business as (mostly) usual.

WA - one NWAPA show at Kamiak HS cancelled. The rest of the state is independent shows. Both major shows in Central Washington (SE Washington Cavalcade of Bands and Yakima Harvest Marching Band Festival) have been cancelled. https://www.cavalcadeofbandswa.org/  and  http://harvestbands.org/2021/  In addition, Washington State University has cancelled their show. https://marchingband.wsu.edu/wsu-marching-band-championships/

WY - state only has two competitions, the University of Wyoming/Troopers D&BC show (no 2020 info) and the WHSAA state marching band show (still scheduled).

It looks like Macy's is still planning to have their parade in some form but with no band participation.  Their official marching honor band, The Macy's Great American Marching Band, posted this on their Facebook page this afternoon:

Boy do I feel for all those involved. We would’ve been heartbroken if this had happened last fall, during our daughter’s senior year.

Good move but not holding my breath on Macy’s parade. Tons of people in the crowd and unless something really good happens with vaccines can’t see NY and NYC taking the chance. And Macy’s taking such hits with their bottom line right now can’t see them wanting a publicity black eye with CV out break after the parade
