Tacoma Trip Itinerary

Some of this itinerary is still flexible as you will see below, but the big points are solid. If our band makes finals, we will return at 2:15-2:30am on Sunday morning. If our band does not make the finals round, we will return during evening on Saturday.  My bet is that we will be in the finals round. Attached here is the trip letter I sent home a couple of weeks ago. Please let me know if you have any questions.
