And here we are, our final week of marching band competition! This week the Mighty Black & Gold Marching Band will be in performance at the Deep South Marching Band Festival in Theodore Alabama. This is a best in class type show where our guard, percussion, and overall band will be pitted against other schools in our class. We will be traveling via School bus to this event. Parents, if you would like to help chaperone this trip, please click the link below. For a complete run down of the itinerary, look at the calendar below or CLICK HERE. We will be meeting at 12:30 and performing at 6:40. Please make sure you eat BEFORE call time at 12:30.
Deep South Marching Band Chaperone Sign-up:
Because we are one of the last bands to perform, we will be going directly to the stands after we leave the field. There are only 3 bands then awards after us. Because of this, we will not be able to eat until AFTER the award ceremony. If you are planning to eat at the concessions before we leave to return to MHS and after awards, please fill out the meal form by clicking HERE. THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL MEAL ORDER. This is simply a count for the Theodore concession workers so they know what to have ready after the awards. If you choose to eat at the concession, you will need to bring money to pay for it yourself.
One final bit for Deep South. I have not received any info on gate cost. As soon as we get this info, we will pass this along to you.
The Pace vs Milton game is this week as well. You will see the itinerary for this below. Parents, if you would like to help chaperone, please sign up below.

Finally, parents, if you are not planning to go to the game but would still like to help the band in some way, why not help out selling concessions for the BPA at the Bands on Blackwater this Friday! This is a BPA incentive event and all help is welcome. Just click the link below.
