Itinerary for Oct 7th-8th and 10th

Friday Oct. 7th.

Friday is a half day.  Students will be released at 12:30pm and will be able to come to the band hall to get ready for our travels to Grandview.  Bus riders will need to stay with us so they won’t be stuck at home without a ride.  Others will need to report back at 1:30pm.  We will pack up and leave by 3:00pm to avoid traffic.

Students that ordered the $3 meal deal will have it when we arrive in Grandview.  Others who chose not to get one will need to bring their own food if they wish to eat before the game.

We are only staying through half-time for this game since we have contest the next day. We are hoping to be back around the 11:00pm hour.  We’ll send remind texts.

Saturday Oct. 8th

Contest in Mabank.

Students need to eat lunch BEFORE they arrive to the band hall.  Students need to bring money for concessions that day.

11:00am arrival at the band hall.  Head to the field for a couple of run throughs.  Then pack up the trailer and head to Mabank.

1:45pm performance

Announcements of rankings will be around 4:45-5:00pm

If we make the finals, we will perform again within the window of 6:30 to 7:30.  Final rankings would be around the 8:00pm hour.  Students should be home around 9:00pm

If we don’t make finals, we’ll be home around 5:30pm.

Parents may attend.  After final performances, parents may check out their child via a director by signing them out on our notebook.

Monday Oct. 10th

We will have practice from 10am to noon.  Please make plans to be there for this important rehearsal.
