SMB 2019 Camp Starts Monday!

BAND CAMP STARTS MONDAY, AUGUST 12 AT 9AM.  BELOW ARE USEFUL LINKS PROVIDING REMINDERS OF “WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, AND WHAT”.VERY EXCITED – This is going to be an awesome & rewarding experience! The SMB returns in 2019 as one of the elite programs in the NW. Our show “The Path” is exciting and we can’t wait to get started. Students & Parents, get on board and get excited to make some great memories!

Very Important – Make sure you are geared up and ready to go. Here is the SMB Checklist that was handed out last June. Contact your section leader, or colorguard captain or field conductor if you have any questions.

The SMB calendar has only a few minor adjustments since our June info meeting.  All dates/times online are accurate including the following SMB Calendar Dates 2019 (updated 6.12.19)

FOOD – One thing that is not on the checklist, bring a lunch and a dinner or have a plan in place to get your meals.

Band Parents & Members – Rehearsal Start & End Times are as defined:

Start Time – If rehearsal starts at 9am. We start either moving or stretching right at that time. “We attack at 9am” is what I will say. That means students need to allot for time to park, walk to the band room, socialize (as desired), use bathroom, lather sunscreen, assemble equipment, etc. Students should be arriving to SHS about 10-15 minutes ahead of schedule so that they can get setup and to their correct rehearsal spaces on time.

End Time – End time is when rehearsal ends. We end most of our camp rehearsals at 8pm. We take students right up until 8pm on the upper baseball field. It takes us about 20 minutes to strike the field and get back down to the band room. If you are picking your student up from camp, it is a better assumption that they will be ready to leave between 8:20-8:30.

All section leaders have been making contact with their section members throughout the course of the summer. If you haven’t heard from your section leader, you probably are not on our roster or we don’t have your contact info. Make sure all of your info is entered correctly into the Charms link that was emailed your way.

Music has been posted and available to print in the members only section https://sherwoodbands.org/members-only-section/ . You will find warmups, show music, and various stands tunes. Print your part only!

MOST IMPORTANT – Start hydrating and eat healthier than normal. Get rest and make sure you start training yourself to be ready to go at 9am in the morning. Camp is a huge physical and mental undertaking. You owe it to yourself and your section to take good care of your mind and body! We need you on the field ready to perform!

Band Parents – We still need some help with some side projects. If you want to get involved with our band program here at SHS, please contact  shsbandboostersinfo@gmail.com for more info

Colorguard – We are always recruiting more colorguard members and it is not too late to join our 2019 marching season. If you are interested in joining, come see us at camp on Monday! Also, please reach out to Sherwoodcolorguard@gmail.com & guard.sherwoodbands@gmail.com regarding any questions you might have.
