If you think about it, people don't like to have bands as big as avon or carmel. That's just too many kids!
Woodwinds, you need A LOT of for there to be a big presence of them, so that would extend far beyond the 150 person limit.

Corps meet once a month (auditions are still kind of held during this time) to learn the music and the drill until May comes around and the corps does a thing called "move-ins" , where they move into a place where the corps can sleep and rehearse. Most of the time they check when is the best time for most of the kids in high school and college to move-in even though some have to miss a few weeks due to later semester end dates.
Do most corps generally allow people to miss the first week of the move in because of school?

I think for the majority of corps, the policy is just to get there as soon as you're able to finish school.
