Please just stop. Please.  

Please don't hurt your neck on the account of DCP.

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

Interesting where many other circuits are canceling their seasons, often with a unanimous vote, but MCBA states that 96% of their membership supports moving ahead with a full slate of October shows with only state championships cancelled. Knowing band directors,  I somehow get the feeling there was less of a consensus in that meeting than they claim. 

Band directors have never been in consensus on anything, ever, regardless of state.

That said, band directors can be even more cliqueish than band students. I know plenty of organizations around the country where only people who "toe the party line" are tolerated (so to speak). I make no claims about the MCBA, I have no insider knowledge. But the MCBA is a small-ish organization (60 members?) so the numbers are small enough it's at least within the realm of possibility that there could have been a near-unanimous vote.

Texas UIL delayed the fall sports decision that was due yesterday, only saying there will be some form of football this fall.  (So, we assume, some sort of band season.)
