Hello SMB Members & Parents, Below are itineraries for our Friday, October 29 Rehearsal and the competition on Saturday, October 30. As always, be mindful with nutrition & hydration. Get as much rest as possible.

Friday, October 29 – Rehearsal & Recording Session
3:45 – Stadium Rehearsal
5:45 – Transition Back to Bandroom/Dinner
7:00 – Audio Recording Session in Stadium (Winds & Percussion)
8:00 – Approximate time we are done, go home.

Here is information and the student schedule for the Sherwood Showcase this Saturday, October 30 at Sherwood High School. 

Dear SMB Members & Parents, This is going to be a very fun Saturday! That being said, the logistics surrounding hosting our own show makes this different for us. Parents, please pick up and drop off students near the tennis court parking lot. 

We will not have a campsite per usual. We will utilize the band room area of the school much like we typically do for football games and will not be setting up camp in the parking lot (other schools will be doing this per usual).

SMB Members can only be in the band room area when you are putting uniforms on/off, to get equipment, and for designated warmups per schedule. Do not hang out in the band room area. Only eat in the designated eating areas in the school. Members are NOT allowed to go beyond the commons area restrooms. We need to stick to our corner of the school, it is the only supervised area and the only area covered by custodial staff services. We cannot make instrument sounds that can be heard from the stadium field, so the back band room door will be closed. Access to the band room will be along the brick wall on the west side of the school (band room wall/where we normally serve food), into the loading dock area, and through the back doors into the long hallway.

Warmup Areas for Sherwood:

Winds: Auditorium (Music), Loading Dock (Visual)
Percussion: Band Room, Black Box
Colorguard: Commons

Some additional items to note:

  • Bring a mask to have on you at all times during the day.
  • Students will be fed Lunch & Dinner throughout the course of the day. There will also be concessions sold on site.
  • Students need to bring black socks & show shirts and anything else associated with their uniform.
  • Bring weather appropriate clothing to change into when out of uniform.
  • Anyone with long hair need to put their hair up into a bun to fit into shako.
  • Parents: They do charge $15 tickets at the gate to view performance.
  • NWAPA Link: Here is a link to our marching circuit site with more info
