 Woodwinds, dry your instruments!!!!

Woodwinds, dry your instruments!!!!

Good afternoon,

***ATTENTION ALL WOODWIND PLAYERS (flute, clarinet, alto/tenor sax)***

Given our performance in the rain Friday night, this is a reminder that if you have not yet laid your instrument out of its case to dry, PLEASE DO SO ASAP!  It is very important that your pads get a chance to breath and dry out.

Thank you, have a wonderful day!

Final Exhibition Meeting

Final Exhibition Meeting

Good afternoon,

Given that this is our first time hosting an event like this, I would like to hold one final meeting in order to gather all volunteers and team leaders.  The meeting will be next Thursday, September 18th at 6:30pm in the Middle School Band Room.

Goals for this meeting will include finalizing last minute details, doing a 'talk-through' and timeline of the day, meeting in teams to discuss arrival times and responsibilities, as well as answer questions.

**VOLUNTEER NEEDED:  We are in need of one person to work in the press box who can take the SD cards from the judges recording devices, upload the files to a laptop, and burn them onto a disc for each school.  If you have a MacBook Pro, there is an SD reader built in.  If not, we can use an SD USB adapter to transfer the files onto a laptop.  Please let me know ASAP if you would be willing to take this job, and/or if you have a laptop with burning capabilities that we could use in the press box.

Thank you all for your work and dedication, this event would not be possible without the help of everyone involved!

See you next Thursday!

Mr. Raab

Band Show Shirts

Band Show Shirts

Just a short note for volunteers for the Marching Exhibition.  It is recommended that all volunteers purchase a $10 show shirt to wear at the show on Saturday, September 20th.  The orders need to be into Mr. Raab by this Wednesday.  Please make checks out to Whitehall Band Boosters and send with T-Shirt order.

Also, we will have having a short meeting early the week of the competition to clean up loose ends for the Marching Exhibition.  I will send an email as to the exact day and time.

My access to email will be limited this week.

Thanks for all your help.
