Inclement Weather Policies for WBA Championships

The weather forecast for Sunday is calling for 60% chance of rain.  In order to prevent any confusion during the actual event, the board of directors wanted to outline the following contingency policies that will be in effect:

  • Sunday’s Grand Championships will take place rain or shine unless there is a safety risk to the performers. 
  • Each finalist band can make their own decision to perform or withdraw from the contest
  • Only those bands who qualify for Grand Championships will be allowed to perform.  Should bands withdraw due to the weather, no replacement bands will be added to the schedule
  • In the event of a total cancellation, class championship scores will determine the Grand Championships
  • Any changes to the schedule and/or other decisions regarding this weekend’s contest will be communicated via email and text messaging through CompetitionSuite


We sincerely hope that Sunday’s event will proceed as planned as a fitting conclusion to a wonderful season for WBA.  We wanted to be proactive in outlining contingencies in advance should the weather forecast becomes a reality.


Safe travels to Merced and Clovis!
