Keep it up MB&G!!! We are in the final week of competition season with the Pea River Marching Band Competition this Saturday. Please pay careful attention to the itinerary below. Saturday will be a busy afternoon/evening. Make sure you bring money for dinner at the concession stand. Please be aware that a finals performance will depend on how we do at Prelims. For the retreat at the finals awards ceremony, all Leadership and Seniors will participate on the field with the rest of the band staying in the stands. Please be aware that we will not unload Friday night after the game so everything will be ready to go for Saturday. I also do not plan to unload the trucks when we return on Saturday since we will be returning late.
Please be aware that the rehearsal this Thursday is our only one this week. That being said, if you are not present at this rehearsal, you will not be able to go to the game at Pace this Friday.
Be aware that the "Bring the Heat" event at Whataburger has been cancelled for Monday. We are looking at a time to reschedule. Pace's drumline was not going to be able to attend since their game from Friday night was rescheduled to Monday.
Finally, ALL FAIR SHARES SHOULD BE UP TO DATE. We owe $41,000 in bills for this season for services rendered. Please get these up to date now. The 4th fair share's are due this Saturday.
That is all for now. I hope you have a great week!
