In the end, The Black and Gold Brigade swept all 1A Gold class titles (Auxiliary - 81.5, Percussion - 79.8 and Band - 75.3; sorry if I miscopied the score!) and the scores were not surpassed until the top bands in 2A Gold class was graded. IMHO though, B&W was better, anyway. Unfortunately, Los Alamitos HS took all sweepstakes.
Well, that saved us from coming back for 9PM exhibition performance...
