New parents and band members may be wondering what to wear and where to sit.  This is a celebration, a special occasion, so we ask for dress up attire.  Boys wear anything from dress slacks, shirts, and ties to khakis and golf shirts.  Girls wear dresses, skirts, or dress pants.  We try not to wear jeans. 

Tables on one side of the room are reserved for band members and ninjas only.  They will have balloons on them.  There are also reserved tables for the band staff.  All other tables are open seating for family members.  We will have “parent ushers” to assist with seating. 

Adults can have drinks in the hotel bar; we just ask that you do not bring them into the banquet room.  Some parents like to wait in the bar area during the dance portion of the evening.

We look forward to a great celebration!

Syracuse Party Booth, once again, will be there for the evening at a drastically reduced price.  We will have a place for donations near their table.  Please give, if you can.

Carrier Dome Concession Stand, Dates throughout the Fall and Winter Season

The Dome Stand is our biggest fundraisers and needs everyone's help to make this a success. This fundraiser puts $20,000 to the budget split between student accounts and general fund (this works out to be about $125 towards each member’s participation fee and also helps us to invest back into the program with Capital Expense purchases). ALL member’s fees are subsidized by this fundraiser.  EACH FAMILY IS ASKED TO WORK A MINIMUM OF 3 VOLUNTEER SLOTS, there are a variety of dates/times during football and basketball season to accommodate everyone's schedule.

 

We staff a concession stand at the Carrier Dome for all SU home football games and basketball games.  We are fortunate to have this stand, as there is a waiting list for these lucrative moneymakers.  In return, we receive 15.5% of the stand’s net profit per event.  We are responsible for preparing all the food that will be sold, fully staffing the stand during each scheduled event, and cleaning up afterwards.  This can be a lot of fun and beneficial for your student account. 

 

We have numerous ways you can sign up to work shifts at the Dome you can click the link in the Band Notes emails http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b48a4a62da7f94-dome1

 

 visit our Website and click on the link "Dome Signup", sign up in the "Dome Book" that will be at practices and meetings, Send a email to the Dome Coordinators or to LHSMBBDOME@gmail.com.   

 

Workers earn $8/hour. For a typical football game workers earned around $56 and for basketball it’s around $40. This is a great way to meet other band parents and to really put a dent in that student account. Workers must be at least 16 years of age (this is a Dome rule, not ours) and family and friends can work towards your account.  

 

Band members are encouraged to work games that do not conflict with band, and guard members are encouraged to work times between fall and winter season performance days
