Marching Band HELP!!!
Hello Marching Band Families!
As promised at Band Camp, we are going ALL-IN on our marching band season and the time has come for me to ask for YOUR help finishing putting our competitive show together. We are officially less than a month away from our first competition so it is definitely time to get involved!
Quick announcement- Tuesday rehearsals will now be 6-8pm , as we have lost a bit of daylight already as we head towards the winter months.
I need your help putting together our props and stage for our soloists and it is always such a cool thing to see something on the field at a competition that you know you helped build!
Almost everything this year is PVC based and there is actually not too much to do-
-Build four 9’x9′ PVC frames for our props
-Cut our printed vinyl tarp into 9’x9′ pieces for the props
-Attach velcro to the tarp and PVC prop frame
-Build one 3’x’3′ PVC stage for soloists
—POTENTIALLY add lights
Build days are Saturdays September 11th (8-noon) and September 25th (8-noon). To sign up, click here
(My wife said she doesn’t trust me to do more than change light bulbs at home, so please consider helping out!)
Being honest, chaperones lighten the load for me and also gives the students someone to ask for help besides me. When you’re available to help students with their hair, provide band-aids, etc etc, it allows me to focus on getting the band to sound and look as good as possible. Chaperones also get free admission to the competitions and football games!
Before our first football game, I answered/solved 52 questions/problems from 6-6:30…and yes, I kept count. Only one or two of them actually needed a music degree. =)
Interested in chaperoning at football games or a competition? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can begin the volunteering screening process as required by TSD.
” Pit Parent”
These are parent helpers that help us move equipment onto the field for our performances during halftime and at competitions. This year we have a bit of stuff to move onto the field and could really use 5-6 parents at each performance to help the students get onto and off the field. The more parent help we have the less the kids have to do, and the more they can focus on their performance.
Email me if interested! email@example.com
Our marching band has very quickly outgrown our equipment trailer. So we’re looking for a volunteer or two to drive a rental equipment truck to and from our competitions on October 2nd, and October 20th.
This is an all-day job, and also includes picking up and dropping off the truck from the rental facility.
As someone with a visual disability, I simply cannot be the truck driver due to the late nights some of our competitions have.
If you’re interested in being a truck driver, please email me! firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all your support so far, the show is coming along quite nicely and I’m excited to share with you our efforts at the next home game, next Friday, September 17th.
