REGISTRATION FOR THE 2015 KNIGHT OF CHAMPIONS
IS NOW OPEN

BASICS
The Prospect Band Boosters will host the twentieth annual Knight of Champions Marching Band Festival on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 at Prospect High School.  The competition will begin approximately 2:00pm and wrap up around 10:00pm.  There are two awards ceremonies planned: the first after the Class A and AA bands compete, and the second at the end of the evening with Class AAA awards and the presentation of the Grand Champion trophy.

We will classify bands based on playing members (not including Drum Majors and Auxiliary). 
Class A (up to 64 members) 
Class AA (65 – 96 members) 
Class AAA (97 or more members)

Bands may also choose to perform in Exhibition for adjudication comments only.  A smaller band may elect to compete in a larger class. 
We will award First, Second, and Third place trophies in each class along with Outstanding General Effect, Outstanding Music, 
Outstanding Visual, Outstanding Percussion, and Outstanding Auxiliary caption awards for each class.  
The Dave Morrison Grand Champion Traveling Trophy will be awarded to the highest scoring band of the day.

JUDGES
Judging will be BOA style judging.  Ties will be determined first by the highest raw score (score minus penalties), then highest General Effect total, then by highest Music total score.
