Get ready for tomorrow!!!!!!!!

Quick guide for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

PACK EVERYTHING YOU NEED THURSDAY NIGHT AHEAD OF TIME. BRING ALL OF YOUR OVER NIGHT STUFF TO THE SCHOOL ON FRIDAY MORNING.

  1. Pack a small overnight bag, like a back pack or a small duffel bag. This is all you will have room for on the bus. Put your band show shirt, shorts and a pair of black socks in this bag-that way they will be clean for Saturday. Pack also a pair of jeans, under garments, bed time clothes, cold weather gear (sweats, coat, thermals, gloves, hat, etc.) and toiletries for one night. Toiletries are things like shampoo, soap, toothpaste and toothbrush, deodorant, etc. There will be no time or room for gaming consoles, guitars, digeridoos, etc.
  2. You will need to wear some other Kemp shirt and Shorts and black socks for Friday when you arrive to school. We will wear this under our uniform for the game. Seniors, make sure you have what you need for Senior recognition.
  3. We will do halftime first before Life Oak. Drill team does their thing then we go on. After our show we will announce Beau and Sweetheart then recognize our Seniors. We’ll come off the field, send loading crew, pit crew and percussion to the band hall to start packing the trailer while we watch Life Oak. Then we all head back (drill/band people included), pack up our instruments and uniforms, eat our meal deals and load the bus to head out.
  4. When we arrive at our 2 hotels, you will take your back pack and uniform off the bus (keep your hat on the bus under your seat), get your room keys, go to your rooms, get showers out of the way and get to bed. GO TO SLEEP RIGHT AWAY!!! There will be security guards on our floors throughout the night. Your rooming list was premade for our convenience. No arguments about who you are with and no changes…you are just there to sleep. Suck it up.
  5. You need to be up and ready to go by 6:00am dressed in your band show shirt, shorts, black socks, BIBBERS, band shoes and thermals if you brought some (I recommend you have some). Bring your uniform bag and back pack down to the breakfast area to eat, then we will load buses to head to the stadium. From there, follow your itinerary.
  6. Stay positive, be excited, have energy to make a great 1st impression that will last with the judges all day long! Transcend!

Because of the early performance time we have on Saturday and the distance of travel to the competition site, this is the plan we will follow.

 

Friday morning, students will need to arrive to morning practice with your back pack or small bag for Saturday. It needs to include your toiletries, band shirt, band shorts, black socks, bed time apparel, jeans, cold weather needs (gloves, jacket, sweats, hat, etc.) Nothing else…there will not be time for gaming consoles, or other extra items as we will not have any time for these things.

We will go through our normal routine up through halftime of the football game. After we march halftime we will come back to the band hall where we will pack up your uniform and equipment. We will eat our meal deal and then load the bus to head to Denton.

We are staying in two hotels in Denton. La Quinta and Holiday Inn right on I-35. The girls will be staying in the La Quinta with Miss Delgado and band booster parents. The boys will be staying in Holiday Inn Express with the male staff and band booster parents.

We will perform in the morning and then head to Stonebriar Mall in Frisco for a few hours to eat lunch and relax. Students will be given a per diem for lunch of $8.00 but we encourage extra money be brought. Afterwards we’ll head back to catch the last few bands before finals are announced.
