At the Aledo competition, the Granbury band was one of several schools selected to advance to the finals before pouring rain and thunderstorms cancelled the evening performances. The percussion snared awards for best cymbal line and second place drumline.
The band will next compete at the HEB Marching Contest at Bedford’s Pennington Field on Saturday, October 15. That competition is hosted by L.D. Bell and Trinity High Schools, and the Pirate Band will take the field in the preliminary round at 10:50 A.M. A finals performance in the evening is also a possibility, if the band advances.
