Just a few reminders before game day:
1. Game Day Schedule:
4pm-5pm - Full Band Rehearsal
5pm-6pm - Eat and Change into Uniform
6:10pm - Lineup for uniform inspection
6:25pm - Whistle for parade to the field
6:40pm - Pre-game
8ish - Halftime
10pmish - Parade Back to the Band Room
10:10pm Breakdown and Room Cleanup
2. It is important that all students come with their pants hemmed. I understand that everyone is busy and it is one more task to be accomplished. But, this important to do for three prominent reasons: A) It is a safety issue to have students dragging their pant cuffs on the ground. They can trip. B) It looks unprofessional. C) It will put unnecessary wear on the pants. Replacement costs are approx. $180. Students will be charged for replacement of pants if the cuffs are worn-out . The Band needs to avoid all three at all costs. I thank you and the Band thanks you.
3. Students must remain in uniform at all times. Jackets are not to be taken off or unzipped at any time. The only exception is that when a student is eating at the concession stand they may unzip their jacket to avoid stains on the jacket. Suspenders must remain tightened at all times to avoid dragging pant legs. Again, we must maintain a professional image while at Pirate Stadium.
I look forward to a great game tomorrow and an amazing performance. Students, you have worked so hard these past weeks and have so much to show for it. I can't wait to hear Queen at its finest. Go Pirates!!!
