The 2017 Santa Rosa All-County audition materials can be access by clicking HERE
October 28th is the final competition which is at Theodore HS in Alabama. As you hopefully saw in the previous email, we will arrive at Theodore at 4pmish, perform at 6:40, then head directly into the stands and watch the 3 remaining bands ans remain there till the end of awards. There will be an opportunity to eat at the concessions AFTER the award ceremony should you choose. What we need from you is a tally of what you think you will be ordering that night so we can send this to the Theodore Band Boosters so they can be ready and stocked up for us. THIS IS NOT A MEAL DEAL. They are simply going to keep their concessions open for us after the awards and need to know what to have ready. You are responsible for paying for this at the concession stand. Prices are included on the following form. Please fill out the form by Sunday the 21st.

We finally received the schedule for the Deep South Marching Band Festival for Saturday, October 28th which can be accessed by CLICKING HERE and have built an itinerary around it which is below:
12:30-1:30 - Rehearsal (We will not unload the truck for this rehearsal. We will air play)
2pm - Depart for Theodore HS, AL
4pm - Arrive Theodore HS and unload
5:40 - Warm-up
6:40 - PERFORM
7pm - go directly in the stands and watch 3 remaining bands
8:15 - Awards

The Deep South Marching Band Classic at Theodore HS in Alabama is on the 28th. We are still waiting to get the performance schedule from their band director. As soon as we receive that, we will be able to put together an official itinerary for that day. Until then, I am estimating that we will leave sometime between noon and 3pm. I have been made aware of the ACT that morning. Do not worry if you are taking that test. You should be finished with that before we leave.
Finally, we will be hosting the University of Mobile Ramcorps 5th period till 3pm this Wednesday. They are an indoor marching band performance group. Students will be released at the beginning of 5th period for this performance. More info will be discussed in class.
