Band Notes & Weekend Wrap Up


Greetings Parents, Students & Staff…

Wow — what a TERRIFIC DAY on Saturday!

  • Thank you to Carl Larsen & the entire Band Parents Team! Smooth Operation & Great food!
  • The Color Guard!!!! WOW!!! We beat Brien McMahon for the first time all year, and it wasn’t even close! A nice way to head into Nationals!
  • The Drum Line — Holy Smokes!!! 2 Spectacular performances, and a Clinic! I just loved watching the Dartmouth students filming YOU!

Schedule This Week
  • Guard — Tuesday, Thursday — regular times & locations
  • Drum Line — Wednesday 6p-9p
Tickets for USBands Indoor Nationals

We are required to sell 20 tickets for each of the Guard & Drum Line shows for this Saturday. The cost is $20 per ticket. Sadly, parents that are helping and chaperoning will need a ticket. Tickets will be available for purchase just prior to the Bus Departure (see times below) please write a check for the full amount of tickets to Bunnell HS Band, or bring $20 cash per ticket.

  • Tickets are first come first served
  • If we sell all of the tickets, there will be no charge to individual accounts. Otherwise, anyone who doesn’t purchase a ticket will share in the cost of the difference. Example: ten people do not purchase a ticket, but we sell 15 of out of the 20 required. The 10 people who didn’t purchase a ticket will have a charge on their account for $10. I hope that makes sense!
