Winter Guard

PARENT UPDATES
  • We are looking for help with a variety of items throughout the season from the parent side.   A large part of the success of the organization does depend on your involvement!
  • Below is a list of items that we know we will need help with.  
    • Flag Construction: Includes cutting of pieces, sewing, etc.  
      • No experience necessary - we can teach you everything you need to know!
    • Event Chaperones: 1-2 parents per show.   
      • Responsibilities include riding with the group to/from shows, assisting with hair/makeup prior to the show, and helping get equipment on/off the floor.   
      • Can be a "mom" or a "dad"!
    • Home Show Assistance:
      • We run our annual home show on April 6th, 2013.  On average, we have 40-50 groups all performing at DBHS that day.   
      • Assistance will be needed in ALL aspects of the production!
    • Wildwood:
      • TBA
    • A "Guard Parent Coordinator".  
      • Someone that can help coordinate all of the above with the director.
    • Any parents who are interested in working with the color guard this year will have to take care of volunteer clearances through the district, if you have not already done so.  This is a 5 minute process that is done at the district office.
