Hi band families!
The countdown to camp has begun and we still need your help to get ready! There are several big opportunities to pitch in coming up soon. Please read the information below and let us know if you can lend a hand!
Practice Field Work Day
We are still looking for 10-15 volunteers (can be both supervised band students and parents) to help with practice field preparations. With enough people we should be able to knock it all out before it gets too hot!
When: Saturday, July 17th at 8AM (rain date Sunday 7/18 at 8AM)
Where: Athens Drive Practice Field
What to bring: Weed trimmers, leaf blowers, work gloves and water
Goals: Clear field, measure and mark for striping, trim around poles, treat fire ants
Load Big Blue for Camp
When: Friday, July 23rd at 5:30PM
Where: Band Parking Lot
We will be loading the truck from the cage so we will need at least 8-10 folks to help. We will have everything pre-staged in the band hallway so this should go relatively quickly. The truck driver will pick up early Saturday morning and meet us at Rocky Mount.
Band Camp Set Up
We need your help getting the facilities at Rocky Mount ready for our marchers!
When: Saturday, July 24th at 10AM
Where: NC Wesleyan College, Rocky Mount NC
Saturday Set up: We plan on assigning “team tasks” to get as much done as possible before it gets too hot. Also, let me know if there is something in particular you like to do (i.e., tents, marking fields) so we can plug you into the right group!
Overnight set up: There are several volunteers planning on staying Saturday night and helping Sunday morning as well and that is great! If anyone else would like to join that group, please let us know ASAP so we have enough rooms. If you are staying for the week, we will try and put you in the room you will be in for camp.
Contact me via email, text or phone if you can help our Operations team prepare for precamp or camp set up! Thanks in advance!
