Announcements:
  • I hope each of you are enjoying a few days of rest and relaxation this week on Fall Break!
  • TOMORROW NIGHT we have a MANDATORY REHEARSAL from 6-9 in the stadium!  All students are REQUIRED to be at this rehearsal.
  • On Saturday we have the Davy Crockett Parade in Rutherford!  This is a MANDATORY performance grade for all marching band students.  We will meet in Rutherford in the empty lot just to the east of Rutherford School @ 1:15.  The attire for the day is polos, khaki shorts/pants (it's supposed to be COOL!), tennis shoes.  The band room will be open from 12:15 until 12:45 for students to pick-up equipment for the parade and also immediately following the parade for students to drop equipment back off.  Students are expected to provide his/her own transportation to/from the parade.  We will NOT take buses or the truck to the parade.
  • Next week is OUR BIG WEEK!  We host our own competition at GC!  We are hosting 22 bands and are expecting between 3 and 5 thousand people on campus for the event.  We hope that many of you are planning to come help out for this HUGE FUNDRAISER for our band program!  I have attached a copy of the competition schedule to this email for your reference.  Band students are REQUIRED to be here for the ENTIRE event (~7:30am-midnight).  More details on attire will come in next week's announcements.
  • Thanks all those who got trophy sponsors for our upcoming competition.  I have attached a list of the 60+ sponsors we have for our event.  This wouldn't be possible without you guys going to the businesses and the businesses/individuals agreeing to support our competition so if you are in any of these businesses or around any of these people be sure to say "THANK YOU" for supporting the Gibson County HS Band!
  • NEXT MONDAY NIGHT we have our final Band Booster Meeting before the competition @ 7pm in the Band Room!  I hope many of you are planning to attend this meeting as we wrap up the final details for our event!
  • I will need 5-6 students to help put together competition materials NEXT MONDAY @5pm.  This will be worth 2 community service hours for anyone who is interested.
