Schedule for Friday, 9/21/18

Good Evening!

Here is the schedule for Friday, September 21, 2018.

With the early release from school tomorrow, I just wanted to clarify our schedule for the day. Students should go home at 11:15 when school is dismissed.

Students should report to the Band Room at 2:30 to set up for rehearsal.

3:00 PM – RBMB Rehearsal

4:30 PM – Break for Dinner (Meal Deal is Castiglia’s Pizza)

5:15 PM – Dress in Full Unioform. Students are reminded to wear their 2018 show shirt, gym shorts, black dress socks (over the calf, no writing/logos, no low cut sport socks), MTX Marching Shoes.

6:00 PM – Outside for Uniform Inspection and Warm Up

6:20 PM – March to Stadium

6:30 PM – Set Up in Stands

6:45 PM – Pre Game (Fight Song & Star Spangled Banner)

7:00 PM – GAME TIME!!

We will perform our show at Halftime of the game. Following the game and post game performance, we will return to the Band Room, put away all equipment and dismiss for the evening.

As a point of clarification, there is NOT a competition this Saturday. It was on the printed schedule that was handed out in the spring. However, we opted to add the show at Lee-Davis on October 20th in place of the “Free for All” this weekend. That change was made over the summer and was announced at our August meeting of the CBPA. I apologize for any confusion.

I hope to see everyone at the game tomorrow night. Come out and support the RBMB!!

With Pride!!
