    I just came back from the all region band tryouts. I got 12 chair out of 33 and only the top 16 would make the cut I knew I could of done better if I practiced the music a bit more but I guess it is ok.

    Just for those who dont know I play the trumpet.

    All Region Tryouts are a waste of time....the tryout music they give you is way to rediculous (as in, it is hard just to be hard). also, there is a specific reason i absolutely DESPISE All Region Tryouts.....skip back to 8th grade......poor me was going to try out on the bass clarinet (my instrument of choice)......it took over 3 HOURS just to get SIGNED IN!!!!.....we played 12 minutes later.......by the time us low woodwinds could finally go grab a bite to eat they had packed up allt he food.....and then it gets worse......i got sick from that and it ruined my birthday (this took place ON MY BIRTHDAY).....needless to say vomiting is not a great way to celebrate my 14th birthday.....anyways, the only saving grace of that weekend was that my parents picked me up Cybertron Leader Class Megatron for my birthday gift, it was my first megatron

    anyways, congrats on the accomplishment

    I can see why you hate them so much but our band directer signed us all up before hand so we didn't had to go through all that

    the snack bar they had open had was pretty nice and inexpensive but I didn't want to eat before the try outs so by the time I got there all the good stuff was taken

    Did you forget your punctuation at the tryout, out of curiosity?

    Perhaps trumpet and grammar skills are tied to one another. When the higher-placing students post their accomplishments on message boards for toys, do they use punctuation?

    I know my grammar, but I haven't gotten to the part in my keyboarding class were we use the punctuation.I guess I will start to use it.
