Al Paulson, director of bands at Fort Dodge Senior High, said he had 18 students in the band Saturday, a new record for the school.

He said the students gain some valuable experience by playing with new musicians and under a new director.
"They get a new perspective from other directors and making music with a band they've never met before," he said.

Paulson planned on being in attendance, he was expected to wear something special as he listened to the music.

"All the bands are judged from six judges that come from around the state, and they rate each band, give them a division one, two, three, four or five rating," Al Paulson, FDSH band director, said. "Hopefully, we all get ones."

Bands are evaluated and judged on six categories: marching and maneuvering general effect, marching and maneuvering execution, music execution, music general effect, percussion and color guard.
It takes practice and a great deal of effort to be ready for the state competition, Paulson said.
"The whole year culminates at the state contests for Iowa bands," he said. "We all go to different contests and put the show on the field, starting with band camp back in August. We work through all the football games and keep pushing until we get tot he state contest."
The Fort Dodge Senior High marching band is ready to compete, Paulson said.
"We're really confident that we'll go in and get division one," Paulson said. "In fact, at the (invitational) we hosted here, we scored a 74, which is a division one."
According to Paulson, there are many elements that make the event an exciting one.
"All the color, pageantry of all the bands that come in, all the different music everyone is playing, from classical music to rock music, and you see all the colors, all the flags," he said.

Al Paulson, director of bands at Fort Dodge Senior High, was proud of his band's performance Saturday.

"They were awesome," he said, "I was very proud of them."
He said that of the 136 members in this year's band, 75 are freshmen and sophomores. It's a young group.
"I feel really good about where we are," he said.
Paulson was quick to credit those who help the band. Parents in particular are an important part of their success, he said.
"If it wasn't for the parents the kids wouldn't be here," he said.
That support includes the band's booster club. He said they donated $30,000 toward the purchase of the band's new uniforms that they are marching in this year.
He said they've helped keep the band looking sharp.
"I love them; it's a great look," Paulson said.
