Band News – Oct 2

The staff and I are sitting here writing this on Friday… so I hope when you’re reading this we’re all recovering from a wonderful Tournament of Bands where we saw tremendous performances and made a bunch of money! Also, thanks to everyone who volunteered with the TOB and special thanks to Mrs. Dismukes and all the committee chairs for their work in setting up a wonderful show!
This week is a relatively light one. We will rehearse on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and have an away game on Friday but we will not rehearse on Wednesday. It’s very important we get some rest this week and spend time with our families. The next two weeks are two BOA regionals and a home game so we will be VERY busy!
Monday (October 2nd) – Percussion and Guard Sectionals
Tuesday, Oct 3 – Competition Band until 5:45
Wednesday, Oct. 4 – NO REHEARSAL (this is an early release day)
Thursday, Oct. 5 – Competition Band until 5:45
Friday, Oct. 6 – Away Game at Boiling Springs –
Call Time is 6:00 – Band Room will be closed from 3:45-5:30
Signup sheets will be posted in the band room. Remember that all leadership students are expected to attend at least two pep band games and we would like for all other students to attend at least one.
Looking ahead, here is the plan for the week of October 8-14:
Monday (October 9) – Percussion and Guard Sectionals
Tuesday, Oct. 10 – Competition Band until 5:45
Wednesday, Oct. 11 – Football Band until 5:30

We will try to start releasing competition students after halftime of the Dorman game. Please be prepared to get students home and in bed before the end of the game! This will be around 8:30-9:00 so students can get some sleep.
