A Few Band "Notes"

August 27, 2014

Friday 8/29, FIRST BAND FAMILY TAILGATE and HOME FOOTBALL GAME!

  • 3:00 to 5:30 pm – Band Rehearsal

  • 5:30 pm -- Band Family Tailgate! 

  • Bring dinner and drinks for your family and band student, and eat "tailgate" style with the entire Mason Band Family!  Set up a picnic in the grass or bus circle, enjoy your meal, and meet your student's friends and families.  Bus circle opens when students are finished with rehearsal at 5:30.  If you can't make the Tailgate, please make arrangements to feed your marcher...it's a long day and night, and everyone needs to eat!

  • 6:20 pm -- Students change into Uniform of the Night (Green Polo and Khaki shorts for band members, Performance uniform for Guard members)

  • Please make sure your child has money in case they want a drink or snack during 3rd quarter of the game. 

The season is just getting started, but our travel coordinators have been busy planning our trip to Indianapolis for BOA Grand National Championships in November!  Currently, we still have 40 students who are not registered for the trip to Indy.  If you have not registered your student, please go to the Music Travel site to register and catch up on your travel fees.  We need to have EVERY student registered with MTC, which is the travel company that helps organize our trip.  You can find the instructions on www.masonbands.com under Upcoming Events.  Contact Cindy Richie if you have questions cwr1224@gmail.com.

  • The next Booster meeting will be Thursday, September 4th at 7:30.  Please join us to learn of several upcoming events.  Competition Education will be shared along with Micah Ewing, Band Director, sharing “Competition Judges Scoring”.

Our first competition is Saturday, September 6th.  Prior to departing for Kings there is a “Feed the Band” event which takes many volunteers.  We still need servers, but more importantly many to donate food.  It takes a lot of food to feed 320 hungry kids.  We want to send them off to perform their best, so please log into Charms and sign up to help. 

Do you know ANYONE that has a Printer contact?  We could use assistance with items for our “Mason Band Bash”, if so, please contact Anita Harper anitaprzharper@gmail.com
