of America Super Regional Championship, Alamodome, San
Antonio, Texas -- November 4, 2006.
The Westlake High School marching band was one of 42 bands from Texas and one from Colorado performing in the prelimiaries of the BOA competition and one of 15 bands in the finals.
I was unable to take photographs of this event using my usual camera because it is a "professional" camera according to the photography policy of Bands of America (see http://www.bands.org/public/events/dir.network/06.fall/00.packet/06camerapolicy.pdf). The above images were taken from the upper deck at the Alamodome during the finals with my "point and shoot" camera. It should be noted that most recent digital "point and shoot" cameras could be disallowed by this policy since they have video/sound capabilities. It is my opinion that the BOA policy for still photographs is over-reaching.
