Contest location and performance times for each group are listed below – please be aware that performance times are subject to change; we will send updated performance times as they become available. We a tentative itinerary with a more detailed look at our day that will be posted on the BAND app; an updated itinerary will be posted to our BandApp page once final performance times are posted.
We have encouraged all students to add you to our winter guard BandApp which we use to push out information about contests and rehearsal schedule updates. You can scan the QR code below to join!
We are also in need of volunteers for the following – sign-ups are located below:
Floor crew– we need band students to sign up to be a member of the floor crew. These students are vital to the success of our shows. Just like in the fall, performances are timed; we have a limited amount of time to enter the performance gym, pull the tarp, set up props, perform, and exit. Having
Parent chaperones – we will need parent chaperones for each contest. Chaperones will be given a badge allowing them access to the competition for the day. Students are mostly self-sufficient, but due to the nature of the contest schedule, they sometimes require extra help.
Truck driver – we will need a parent volunteer (or two) to drive the floor and prop truck. The truck will follow the bus to contests; truck volunteers will also be given a badge allowing them access to the competition for the day.
Snack/meal help – we are looking for parents to help provide snacks as well as sack breakfast we can give to the kids at each contest.
