Tuesday: Practice 6-8 pm (last practice before Alma)
Thursday: Woodwind Sectional 6-7, Percussion 7-8
Friday: Home Game Call time 6 pm in Uniform (we may leave early as we have an early morning the next day for Alma---I'll have more info later)
Saturday: Alma Marching Competition
8 am Students arrive at school in uniform (get plumes at school).
8:30 am Hop on bus and leave for Alma
11:30 am Arrive at Alma College and unload
Warm-up 12:55 pm
Perform 1:30 pm
After performance we'll put our instruments away and grab lunch from the concession stands and watch some of the other bands perform.
Our awards Ceremony is at 3:00 pm. After our Awards Ceremony we will be heading home.
3:30 pm Depart Alma College and head for Tawas. We will stop for dinner (probably Gladwin or Standish). Please send some money with your student for dinner.
We should arrive back home in Tawas at approx. 7 pm. It'd be a good idea if students can call or text their parents from the bus when we get into AuGres so you can pick up your student at the high school.
This is their biggest performance for the marching season and I'm looking forward to them putting an excellent performance this year. Parents are welcome to attend as well---I usually get some chaperone and tickets for parents to get in, so if you'd like one of those, email me and I can set them aside for you (or send them home with your student). Otherwise, it's typically $5 to get in.
Directions to Alma College
Also, on the October 10th we have Homecoming, so that means we also have the parade directly after school so students will need to bring their uniforms that day and we'll take the bus over to East Tawas for the parade down Newman Street. We'll also be eating dinner at the school that evening before the game so look for some more info coming on that soon but just to give you a heads up that students need to stay after that day and will probably need to bring either something for dinner or we can order out.
October 17th is the last home game and we'll also be doing our Seniors' Parent's Night, so before the game our Senior Band Members will be introduced with their parents, so be sure to keep that in mind!
