32nd Annual RENEGADE REVIEW
Marching Band Championship

Union Public Schools is known for its state-of-the-art facilities and the Union Band Parents have a long history of managing top-notch marching band, winter guard and drum corps events. Facilities are in close proximity to excellent hotels, shopping and dining. Union’s stadium has the latest in artificial turf, and has the best acoustics of any stadium in the region, due to the concrete stands on the front and back sides, as well as the UMAC facility in the south end-zone. Numerous drum corps directors have stated that Union stadium is one of the best venues in the country because of its acoustics, and also because the audience is right on top of the performers.
Competing bands/directors/supporters enjoy the following conveniences of our event:
- All groups will be parked in the school parking lot (all paved)
- Paved access for all groups between their parking spots, their warm-up areas, and the stadium
- 3 lighted warm-up areas NOW ON A TURF FIELD (45 minutes in each warm-up area)
- Band Director’s Hospitality Suite located in the Redskin Room of the Union Multipurpose Activity Center, with a bird’s eye view of the competition field
- Large indoor facility (UMAC) as backup in case of inclement weather
- Bands of America format and classifications
- Auxiliary & Percussion caption Awards for each class (preliminary competition only)
- Exhibition performance at finals for class champions (if non-qualifying)
- Champion medals for each class (based on preliminaries)
