The Marching Band has all of the show on the field as of last night! Tonight (6-9pm) we will work on cleaning the drill and adding music to the 4th MVT. Friday from 9-1 we will focus on all the aspects of getting on and off the field and making sure everything is ready to go for Saturday!
After the rehearsal on Friday, we will load all of the gear onto the u-haul and trailer. We will need extra help, so if you are available, please contact me if you can help if you have not done so already.
Important information about Sunset Classic!
HOMECOMING PARADE STARTS AT MITCH CHARTER SCHOOL AT 3:45. WE WILL MARCH THROUGH OLD TOWN, AROUND STELLA OLSEN PARK AND BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL.
If you have any clean towels you can donate, we will take them. We need them to wipe down instruments when it rains.
The guard is getting ready to create the flags for the show. Amy Jack is looking for a few good men or women who sew a mean straight stitch.

BAND APPARAL ORDER FORM
WE NEED YOU!!
All Marching Band and Color Guard Parents,
We need more parents to volunteer to help with this season’s Pit/Props Crew at home games and Saturday competitions. The need is especially great with the home football games/performances.
The Pit/Props Crew transports the props (essentially field decorations that enhance the students’ program – called “THERMOPYLAE” this year) onto the performance field just before the band performs and then back off the field once the band is finished with the program.
This season, the props consist of nine large (8’ x 20’) painted vinyl sheets laid flat on the field, 12 golden shields with weighted stands and a fanciful raised platform for the soloist.
The Pit/Props Crew will also be responsible for moving the sound equipment into and out of the Pit area.
Upcoming games/performances are on October 1st, 15th and 22nd.
The competitions are scheduled for October 9th, 23rd and 30th.
We have a couple of Pit/Props Crew rehearsals scheduled with the first one taking place tonight, September 29th, at 7:30 pm.
Please consider spending one or more of these Friday nights or Saturdays with your band or color guard son or daughter. You will never meet a nicer group of teenagers (or band parents)!
If you have any questions or would like to sign up, please email me at email@example.com or call me at 503.625.1141 or 503.407.8830.
