NWAPA Championships at U of O

The championships schedule is now posted on the Championships event page .  A few reminders and updates regarding the Championships Event at Autzen Stadium:

  1. Parking will be $5 per car. Units will receive one free parking pass for every 10 students.  Passes will be mailed to participating units the week of 10/24.  Note that the parking charge is to cover the costs of event parking monitoring and control the parking flow.
  2. Band Warmup areas and times will be noted on the final schedule.  Percussion and general visual warmup areas will be noted on the site map.  Color guards will warm up in the Moshofsky Center. Warm-up may only take place in designated areas on the site map.
  3. Gas powered vehicles will be allowed on the field.  Vehicles must be in excellent working condition and must not drip gasoline or oil on the field.  U of O and NWAPA staff reserve the right to request that vehicles observed to be in poor condition not be allowed on the field.
  4. The tunnel at Autzen cannot accommodate props that are taller than 6’9″ and/or wider than 10’6″.  Props larger than that will have to be brought in pieces and assembled in the end zone during your interval time.

If you have additional questions regarding the Championships event, please reach out to Jeff Mitchell at jmitche76@comcast.net

PCI – Draft Schedule

2017 PCI Event Schedule

2017 A/AA Classification Split Announced

From Tippy Jackson (NWAPA Fall VP):

The Class A cut-off for 2017 will be at 70. Any band with 71 members and above will automatically be placed in Class AA.

Please reach out to Tippy at vp_fall@nwapa.net with any questions or concerns.

2017 Fall Draw Results

The following outline the results from today’s fall draw.  Units were eligible for the draw if they had registered and paid for their shows prior to the draw starting at 1:00p PDT Sunday, August 27th.  These results indicate order of performance from 1st to last in prelims without taking class into consideration.  For example, if an Open band drew the first performance slot in the draw, it means they will go on first in Open Class in prelims.  The final performance order of the day by class will be set once the A and AA classes are set 2 weeks prior to the first contest.  Units paying and/or registering from this point forward will be placed in the schedule in the order payment is received.  If you have any questions, please refer to the Fall Member Handbook or reach out to the Fall VP, Tippy Jackson, at vp_fall@nwapa.net
