URGENT W.E. ITINERARY UPDATE

Due to the mudslides on I-5 North of Vancouver, and the detours that are happening right now around that area, we are going to make some very important tweaks to tomorrow’s itinerary.

6:45am – Percussion & Load Crew Call Time – We will begin packing percussion items and loading the trailer.

7:15am  – WW & BRASS Call Time

7:25am – W.E. Meeting in Band Room Regarding Itinerary

7:45am – Load Charter Bus QUICKLY

8:00 am – Depart

There are a couple of alternate routes that we could take (Rainier route, and an I-5 side highway/road route that bypasses the slide area) and we will make the best decision in the morning with the bus company based on road conditions.

We are budgeting between 5.5 – 6 hours of commute time to our destination based on these routes.

It wouldn’t be the 2016-17 school year without inclement weather making travel difficult; Improvise, Adapt, Overcome!

PERCUSSION – Please talk within your section and have one person email me that you received this message.

WW & BRASS – Please talk with your sections and have ONE PERSON EMAIL ME BACK INDICATING THAT EVERYONE HAS RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE.

PLEASE BE ON TIME AND PREPARED WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED TOMORROW.
