Post Camp Will End At 9:30 Next Week

We will be concluding our post camp rehearsals next week at 9:30pm instead of 10:00pm for the following reasons:

  1. Doc has a bunch of “in-service” school meetings starting very early in the mornings
  2. We are ahead of the game with regard to the music rehearsals that we do inside for the last 1.5 hours
  3. It’s a reward for all the wonderful work that everyone has been doing up to this point in the year.  Ah, the gift of TIME!

Seriously, I wish to thank everyone for how smoothly this summer has gone.  We are almost finished learning 3 out of the 4 movements of our show, we are playing more pep-band music than ever, and the quality of the student’s work is very impressive.  Most importantly, there is a positive, cooperative, energetic vibe in this band that is just awesome!  These kids impress me more and more every year.  Who knows, I might be able to keep doing this in my 80s if they keep it up!

 

Please note that our color guard will be rehearsing from 5:30-8:30pm next week so that they can have an open field for the first hour.  Thank you for accommodating this schedule!

Once again, thank you so much for all your support of our wonderful program!  Football games will begin on Friday, Sept. 6th…only 3 weeks from now!  It’s going to go by fast, so enjoy every moment!

Now if we can only cut some of this humidity we’ll be perfect…but I guess we’ve just got to “weather the weather!”

“Doc”
