Playoff game #5 vs. Brock at AT&T Stadium

On to the next round! Here are the details we have so far.

The playoff game will be this THURSDAY at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. We are the “home” team. Game time starts at 7:00pm, however, we will need to get on the road very quickly due to a very large crowd in tow and Dallas traffic.

You will need $5 for meal deal. Looks to be Papa John’s pizza either 3rd quarter or right after the game before we go home. Details still unfolding.

Have your Kemp Band shirt and or a Christmas sweater and jeans…that’s right…no uniforms!

Send-off is at 1:45pm.

School will be released at 2:00pm. We will load the trailer after the send off and school is released.

We are being fed a meal at 3:00pm in the cafeteria by Kemp Alumni and Boosters. Feel free to eat lunch at your normal time as well…be well fed.

As soon as meal is done we will load the buses and leave by 4:00pm (hopefully sooner) to fight traffic and arrive at the stadium by 6:00pm if not earlier.  Kickoff at 7:00pm

We’ll be combining with Brock HS band and our Drill Team to play songs at halftime.

We should arrive back to Kemp late…somewhere around the midnight hour.  We’ll post updates on remind.

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!
