I hope this finds you well. Thanks for a great start to our season with last week's mini-camp! It was a blast to see the genuine excitement everyone had to succeed! Keep the momentum going! Here are a few important updates....
We currently have roughly 17% of the volunteer opportunities filled for the 2016 season. Please be sure to take a moment, when you have time, to log in to Volunteer Spot and sign up where you can. Remember, we need as much help as possible to ensure the continued successes of our band program! Check your calendar, and click this link to sign up!
Drum Corps International Championship Viewing Party
On Saturday, August 13th, we will be opening the band room for a Championship Viewing Party! Bring some snacks to share, bring some comfy chairs or something to sit on, and we will broadcast the show live, projected on the Smartboard and hooked in to the marching band sound system for your listening enjoyment. Be sure to accept the event on the Band Facebook page so we know who is coming (and sorry, I already claim the comfy chair in my office!)
Bulldog Band Brawl
On Saturday, September 24th, the Big Spring Band Boosters will be hosting our 2nd annual Bulldog Band Brawl, a Cavalcade of Bands sanctioned competition. We currently have NINE bands coming to the show, and will need all hands on deck. Details on volunteer opportunities will be coming soon. Also, please keep an eye out in your email later this week for details on our advertising sales contest. Last year we raised over $5000 in advertising sales from the community to support our show!
Members Only Page
On the band website, www.bigspringbands.net you will find a Member's Only section. This will include printable copies of the music, drill, judges tapes, and more info on the Bulldog Band Brawl. The password for the members only page is bsmb2016 but please DO NOT share this password. We need to keep the music under lock and key due to copyrights.
Out of Office - 6/21-7/4
If you need to reach me from June 21st through July 4th, please note I will be with several of our students on the Youth Music Abroad trip to Europe. I will have limited access to email over this time, so please know there may be delays. I will do my best to respond when I can, but do not have an estimated turnaround time. Remember, Classes of 2018-2020, YMA travels again in 2018........... (hint hint)
If you have any questions between now and our next Mini-Camp on July 5th, please let me know!
