Help Wanted: Sports and Outdoor Show ’14

The next car show is the Sports and Outdoor Show ’14, running Friday, September 5 through Sunday, September 7.  Please consider helping the band by coming out and working a shift or two.  Remember, for every shift worked, your student earns $5 for their trip account, PLUS you are entered in a drawing for fun prizes! Click here to sign up to help at the Sports and Outdoor Show ’14.

First Annual Ironing Bee

Most excitingly, you are cordially invited to participate in our First Annual Ironing Bee on Tuesday, 9 September, at about 6 p.m.  The Band will wear their black pants for the first time at the football game on 12 September.  We’ve been fitting, hemming, and altering those pants over the last few weeks, and will be ready to put the finishing touches on them = ironing!  If you are interested and available, just bring your iron and ironing board (if you’ve got one) or towel (to put over a desk) to practice with your child that night.  We’ll be meeting in the Mirror Room.  Yes, there is work to be done, but we are looking forward more to getting to know some of you better!  Maybe this committee might be one which you are interested in joining?  We do ask that you let us know if you’re coming.  We’d like to make sure we have enough outlets, extension cords, and snacks.

For more information and to RSVP, contact Cindy Ebert.

From the Uniform Committee

Hello!  Just two reminders:

  1. The uniform for this season’s first two football games is the summer uniform = khaki pants, polo shirts, black or brown belts, WHITE higher-than-the-ankles socks, Dinkles, and gloves or wristbands.  If you haven’t been able to acquire khaki pants yet, we have some used ones in the dressing room that have been donated by thoughtful band parents.  THANKS to those folks!  Please stop by before practice and take a look to see if your size is there.
  1. The last chance to order varsity jackets is approaching.  Fittings will take place on Tuesday, 2 September, at 5:15 p.m.  Payment must be received by Thursday, 4 September.  Parents are welcome to come for the sizings.  Click here to go to the documents page, where you can find an order form and a letter of explanation.

Questions?  Just ask!
