Our 5th Comp:
Savanna Field Tournament
in Anaheim, CA

We're in the home stretch, and things are going fast and furious for the Samohi Viking Marching Band! Right on the heels of the comp in Valencia on Thursday, we have another comp down in Anaheim this Saturday, November 10.

Saturday's comp is the last of the regular season. The goal at this point is to improve our top three scores and head into the championships on November 17 with the best possible ranking.

We have put together an itinerary with detailed information on Saturday's comp; you can access it here.

Where Is the Tournament?

The Savanna Field Tournament will be held at Savanna High School's Glover Stadium, 1151 La Palma Parkway, Anaheim, CA. Driving time depends on traffic, but it will definitely take over an hour to get there.
