– Instruments need to be cleaned, polished, and sticks taped prior to report time.
– Reminder about itineraries: “To be early is to be on time. To be on time is to be late.”
– We need as many volunteers as possible for the Band of Gold Invitational. Please contact Lori Peters at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help in any way.
– We encourage our parents and band supporters to cheer loudly and enjoy the band from the stands. Due to safety, limited space, and athletic department rules, adults in the end zone must have a chaperone or equipment badge.
– IMPORTANT – Please do not park on either side of the fire lane at any time. This is the drive that loops around directly to the band room and to the front of the GAC entrance. Parents are asked to find a designated parking spot to drop off or pick up your son/daughter.
– Next week’s Football Game (Friday, September 23) is away at Hilliard Davidson.
– We have no competition on September 24. Enjoy your free weekend!
– We will be competing at two competitions on Saturday, October 1. We will perform in the middle of the day at Athens and in the evening at Pickerington North. We will stop back to Lancaster High School in the afternoon where a meal will be provided.
