Thanks, Carter, for taking the time to type this out and explain the information available to you. I'm not even sure I understand why some choirs are maybe fluctuating between divisions during the same competition season as I thought all the Mississippi competitions coordinated their divisions, score sheets, and registrations collectively to be uniform. But, alas, not my circus. It's a weird year for show choir so I'll just chalk it up to that.
So with the tiers, it looks like we're pretty unsure of the middle school tier I/tier II breakdown so I've just left that lumped together until we receive more information. And for Saturday it looks like Jackson Prep is the only other unknown since they're one of those "floaters." If folks have clarifying information, post a comment or shoot me a message.
Also Jason asked a great, valid question. So for anyone who doesn't know, we first need to post the choirs above in order for the predictions feature to be activated. And we prefer a complete and accurate performance schedule (with times, divisions, choir names) in order to do that. Now, more than 9 times out of 10 we usually get that. We have a high bar for accuracy and getting things posted correctly here. We want to represent these events to the best of our ability. Sometimes from just a sheer lack of information we don't always get the schedule detail and we do the best we can with the information available to us. So while I'm here, just a gentle reminder that we don't just *magically* get the schedules on SCC. Sometimes schedules are available in the public domain, but otherwise we rely on and expect directors, students, contest chairpersons, etc. to submit that information to us. When y'all post the schedules and awards ceremonies results and all that other stuff, just know it's truly appreciated as that stuff makes the workload a little lighter for Häakon and myself.

As noted above, a couple of these groups over both days are Tier floaters and the schedule I've seen does not give any divisions. Therefore, I have classified these divisions based on the last time the choir competed and/or prior knowledge of the division that the choir has competed in.
The groups that are attending have been released. I have not seen how the divisions are broken down but here are the groups over both days that are attending.
Biloxi 'Sound Surge'
