Pit Crew and Any Parents Who Can Help on Saturday:
We will unload the instrument truck and props beginning at 7:30 PM in the MetLife parking lot.
The parking lot is huge and there will be many buses, trucks, etc. Look for the band truck or sign up for Remind and I will send out our location once the truck and trailer are set up and you will receive a message. To sign up for Remind click on the following link:
Also, the truck will be arriving at the hotel at 2:00 PM to unload uniforms into a meeting room. If anyone is at the hotel at that time please come to the lobby to help. The band & guard members will pick up their uniforms when they get back from the museum.
Band & Guard Parents & Students,
I collected five new windbreakers with peeling back letters at the beginning of practice Monday. Rankin Sports feels confident they can fix the problem, and have them ready for our New Milford competition this weekend. I will distribute them during dinner break on Saturday.
If you have peeling letters on the back of your windbreaker, and did not turn it in Monday night for repair, here's what you do:
1. DO NOT use any glue or sticky substance to temporarily fix the letters. You run the risk that Rankin will not be able to fix your windbreaker.
2. Take your windbreaker to Rankin Sports at 37 Newtown Rd., in Danbury, as soon as possible. They need two days to fix the letters, so bear that in mind around our competition schedule.
3. Email Lillian Bittman if you take your windbreaker in for repair. We are tracking repairs for future ordering decisions.
4. Do not wear a windbreaker with peeling letters at a competition. IF you don't have enough lead time to get your windbreaker fixed before a competition, we have loaners you can use . The loaners are at the school, so reach out to head chaperone Denise Romano BEFORE buses begin to load.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
