Folks at Carlisle did a nice job when they hosted a few years (2011?) back.  Plus, it gives reason to eat at Advada's or Nicks.  Might need to grab some cholesterol meds but both places serve it up right.   

Gonna go with Melbourne girls but undecided on the boys' side.

Murray's still serves up a good fish and hushpuppies plate but need to allow some time as they can be a little slow getting it out.

Being from Carlisle, we hope that everyone was happy with all of what youve mentioned. Thanks to the AAA for selecting us to host and we hope to have the opportunity to to do this again in upcoming years. Any feedback is appreciated. We would like to improve, if possible.

I thought Carlisle did an excellent job! Very nice gym with a nice big parking lot. Food was also very good and they kept the concession line moving.

Carlisle did a nice job.  There isn't a bad seat in the house.....love the chair back seats on the home side.  Concessions were good.  My only constructive feedback would be to open the floor level exits after a game.  They had these blocked for entrance and exit which pushed everyone to the stairs which caused a bottleneck.  I can understand limiting access to this area, but after a game, it would have moved spectators at a much better pace.

I thought Carlisle did a good job as host. Nice clean facility.  The location was easy accessible for majority of the schools, Parking is good , but needed just a little more spots, we had to park out on the street. Would have liked more space to move around in the gym area.  the space wasn't able to sufficiently handle the crowd.

I'm looking forward to Clarendon's new gymnasium next year.

Looks like the model I saw on the wall it is going to be pretty nice. Pretty alarming for the future of Clarendon boys basketball in the future as they did not field Jr. High boys team this past season. Kinda of rare for boys.

Was your parking issue during day games when school was in session or for all games?

Also,  that forced the elderly and handicapped to use the stairs when just going to the lower exit would've been much easier... but that was the only negative. Everything else was great and I attended nearly every game.

Yes the 2:30 game on Friday.  I was the first that had to park on the street but there was steady line of cars coming in and people were parking everywhere anywhere they could find a spot.  I figured Carlisle would have let out school early to help with parking. 
Saturday for the 1:30 game we parked in the last five spaces around the gym. at that point  people started parking on the street. 
to me that really wasn't a big issue. Maybe have the busses park out by the main hwy to free up more spaces for the fans.

I think that on semifinals and finals nights most any gym will be packed. Overall the space was very nice.

I wasn't aware Clarendon didn't  field a JR High team this year.  I don't get to many games during the regular season.  maybe moma Lion can shed some light.

If we have Brinkley merging with us in a couple of years I don't see it being an issue. Really hope we don't merge.  But if we do then we would be making a move to 3A with the combined school population.

Brinkley enrollment has really been in a downward spiral. I remember when they were 3A and it doesn't seem that long ago.

I was shocked when AAA moved Brinkley, Marvell, and Augusta down to 1A in BB.  Brinkley has the same issue as Clarendon.  I believe Des Arc is picking up a bus load of kids from Brinkley. and another bus from Brinkley goes to Marvel ACAD. 
Hazen sends a bus to Clarendon and picks up a load of kids  and another load from clarendon go to Stuttgart and Marvel acad.   When the state allowed freedom of choice...that has killed the school districts in east Arkansas.  Look at Marianna. now in 2A FB/BB.

Typically, the school districts are the largest employers in these towns.  You lose the school, you lose a bunch of jobs.  Look at all of the school districts in east Arkansas that are no longer around through merger or consolidation.

We definitely had a Jr team this year....and since we are still one of the smaller schools in 2A, even with Brinkley added...IF it happens, I think we'd still be a large 2A....i've heard people say that they'd pull their kids if we merge so who knows.

somebody said yall both have over 450 so yall would differently move up to atleast 3a! We are pretty good size 2a and we have right at 700 and I think pangburn is the biggest or one of the biggest 2a schools and they are still less than 800

Enrollment that AAA uses to determine classifications  Brinkley/Clarendon is 240 .This would make us mid 3A just above Bismark. 

Brinkley is 114 and Clarendon is 126.  Clarendon is the smallest school in the district.  Town population has dropped from2,750 in the 80's to 1,650 now.

As I mentioned earlier, i've heard people say that they'd pull their kids from the school if we merge with Brinkley so if the merger happens, I still believe that we'd be at the top end of 2A.

Brinkley is 114 and Clarendon is 126.  Clarendon is the smallest school in the district.  Town population has dropped from2,750 in the 80's to 1,650 now. 

My numbers came from the ADE, just shows how much the two schools are declining...

Brinkley currently has 83 kids 9-11
Clarendon currently has 93 kids 9-11

Which is 176, guess I made an error adding them earlier...

It doesn't matter how many students you have in your district. The 350 rule does not apply anymore. If you are financially in good shape and spend your monies appropriate (Earle)  and abide by the ADE standards/testing then you are in good shape. I imagine 95% of 2A schools are in declining enrollment. The issue for most will be facilities!!! When the ADE building folks visit every 3 years are these districts going to pass the building inspections? This is where the issues will be for most. If ADE building folks condemn a building which normally is 40-50 year life then you have to build something new without ADE help (Building Fund monies if you have or New Millage). I think most schools will be fine. I do see many 2A schools opting for 8 man football or dissolving their programs (numbers/high insurance premiums)
