Band Notes - Home Show Edition

Home Show October 8th

 

It's been a whirlwind weekend of travel, traffic, and amazing performances (and that rain), but now our Home Show is only a few short days away!  It is our goal to make all of our judges, guest bands and their fans feel welcome at our home show. We have a great group of volunteers who have stepped up to help us take good care of our guests and make this the best show around. 


The Executive Board would like to express their thanks for all of the hard work that people already have done and will do to make our show a success. 

 

Thank you to those who have already volunteered to help!  Most volunteer slots are filled, but we are still looking for some help with Hospitality.  If you are interested and have not signed up elsewhere, please contact Kristen Hallenbeck at kahbear@yahoo.com.

 

There will be a meeting at 5:45 pm on Tuesday, October 4th for all volunteers in the Senior Cafeteria (Rms 902/904). Not sure what you signed up for way back at Off the Line Night?  Check the list attached to this email.

 

Baked Goods Request 

Every year for our home show we offer a Bake Sale for the concession stand as well as trays of baked goods for our different hospitality areas-bus drivers, judges, equipment crews, visiting band staff, chaperones, etc… The money generated helps to reduce the cost of marching band fees.

 

There is a copy of the Bake Sale flier that was distributed to all band members attached to this email. Please drop off your baked goods to room 905 (Home Ec) when students are dropped off on 10/8.  Questions?  Contact Patty Hung at pattypinghung@gmail.com.

 

Concession/Hospitality Requests 

Thank you to those who have already offered to loan us a crockpot or cooler (or two) but we are still in need of the following items:

 

 5 Crock Pots (medium to large)

 

5 Heavy Duty Extension Cords (Outdoor)

 

4 Large Coolers

 

EZ Up Tents

 

** Please make sure all items are well labeled. 

 

All items should be dropped off Saturday in room 905.  If you are willing to loan any of these items, please contact Kristen Hallenbeck.   Thank you!

 

Advance Sale Tickets

Those family members and friends who are not working the Home Show will still need to purchase a ticket to enter the stadium.

Pre-sale tickets for Saturday’s show will be available at the Booster Table on Thursday evening after practice.  They will not be available on Saturday drop off as the ticket committee will be working their posts at that point.

 

DINNER WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE MEMBERS BY THE BOOSTERS

No need to worry about running a dinner to your member Home Show day. The Booster Club is providing pizza for the band members on Saturday.

 

If your member would like something other than pizza the concession stand will be open for them to purchase dinner.
