IT’S BOA WEEK!
We are now beginning the final 4 weeks of marching band season and the Pride of Clover will be attending the Bands of America Regional Championships at Gaffney HS this Saturday. The entire show is now on the field, the props are finished and we are busy preparing for the competition this weekend!
We have MANY, MANY things going on the next 2 weeks for BOA & WCU and will need LOTS of parent help!
THIS WEEK (please see attachment)
Monday – Brass & Percussion sectionals until 5:30
Tuesday – Full band 6-9. We will be practicing with prop and jackets w/lights. Due to the forecast tropical storm/hurricane this will most likely be our ONLY outside rehearsal this week, so we need to make it count. With all the moving parts, please know that while we will finish rehearsal @ 9pm, student will be needed to move equipment & props and that will take several minutes after rehearsal is finished to accomplish. Any parents to help with moving props & pit equipment would be most welcome!
Wednesday – NO GUARD SECTIONALS. Due to the PSAT testing, job shadowing & college visits there will be no after-school rehearsals on Wednesday
Thursday – Full Band until 6. Rehearsal locations may be modified due to weather issues. If we can get outside, we will be outside.
Friday – Final home football game, senior night & FULL SHOW @ HALFTIME! We have LOTS going on Friday night. If you are on the list to assist with pit/props for Saturday, WE NEED YOU ON FRIDAY NIGHT! We will be recognizing our seniors during pre-game and will be performing our full show @ halftime in FULL UNIFORM w/props! We need to be ready to move quickly on Friday night so we can get everything on and off during the allotted 20-minute halftime. After halftime, we will need to be ready to load everything (pit/props etc.) so that it’s ready to go 1st thing Saturday morning.
Saturday – BOA DAY! Please see the attached schedule for time for Saturday. It will be an early day and “hopefully” a long day as well! We will need our pit/prop movers to plan to leave from the school EARLY to arrive on site to help us be ready to roll when we arrive.
Due to BOA’s field policies, we MUST HAVE YOU ON THE LIST WITH A PASS to enter the field on Saturday. If you do not sign-up on CHARMS then we will not have a pass for you on Saturday!
