- Bring money for dinner at JMU; cost is more than usual due to being a college stadium. I would recommend $10-15

- Bring warm clothing to wear while watching the bands perform. It will be quite chilly by the end of the night, so plan appropriately

- This is a long day, so I have limited our rehearsal and arrival time at MHS. With that in mind, please be prompt and on-time for rehearsal that morning. We begin promptly at 11 AM in the stadium

-Those wishing to stay in Harrisonburg following the show need to present a signed parent note by Wednesday Oct 15
