THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR MAKING THE 2ND ANNUAL BLACKWATER CLASSIC A HUGE SUCCESS!! We have received so many complements from band directors and spectators alike about how well ran the event was. This could not have happened without your help. We have estimated that we made a total of $15,000 before expenses. We will have exact numbers for you at the BPA meeting next Tuesday. I want to give our students a huge shout out for performing the best run of the year so far. We still have work to do but We are all super proud of what you have accomplished so far.
