It is Time!!!

It is finally time to start working toward our first ever competitive marching season. Band Camp is Thursday and Friday (July 22-23) from 8 am to 12 pm, and Monday through Friday (July 26-30) from 8 am to 5 pm. Here are some things to remember:

We will be outside quite a bit. Eat a good breakfast, bring water or gatorade to the school (please stay away from soft drinks, and absolutely no energy drinks). Dress appropriately (white t-shirt, shorts, tennis shoes). I suggest you bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and maybe an extra t-shirt or towel to put over your head while you are outside. The 2nd week, lunch will be from 11:45 to 12:45. You will have to take care of your own lunch. Feel free to bring a cooler with sandwiches or other types of lunches.

Finally, Everyone needs a small notepad for band camp. I want you to have the cheap small 3" x 5" notepads. You will use these to write down your position on the field as we start setting the pictures on the football field.

The drill (pictures that we make on the football field) has been written, and everyone has a place to fill, so be prepared to represent SGCHS proudly as a member of the Marching Band!

p.s. Also, please remember that the $175 band camp fee is due by July 28.
