I hope everyone is having a restful long weekend and you're getting ready for a fun week next week - lots going on through the week culminating in our first field show competition of the season in Yakima at the Harvest Marching Band Festival.  This will be the first of 3 competitive judged events we attend over the next month (along with the Sunset Festival of Bands October 26th - our home competition that we are judged at but not competing for awards, and the BIG one on November 9th at Auburn - the Auburn Veterans Day Parade and Field Show Competition, where we have combined Parade and Field Show scores for our fall championship).  We've got our field show music coming along and are working hard on it, we've completed the basic drill-work for our performance (with lots of cleaning-up and adding things yet to do) and we'll be putting it all together this week and see what the judges think of it on Saturday.  It's a big challenge but also a lot of fun to see how well we can do along with a bunch of other HS Bands from all parts of the State (see the attached event schedule: Page 1, Page 2).  Every group's show is different and so a big part of attending the competitions is to watch, listen, and learn what some of the other groups do.  Needless to say, we will learn a lot this week!  We're doing something different for our final rehearsal (or at least part of it) this Wednesday night - we're inviting all of the Middle School Band students (all MS grades) to attend our rehearsal (with their parents) and see what we do up at the HS level - you all know that it's much different at our level (as it should be) but we want to show the Middle School students what awaits them in a year or 2 or 3.  We've never done this before, but I think it'll be a great chance to have you be seen and heard (especially right before a competition), so let's see how it goes.  We've also got a few other important events going on this week:
  • Tuesday 7:00PM our monthly SBPA Band Parents Meeting
  • Friday during the second half of Power Hour we'll do a run-thru (in Concert Formation) of our entire field show in the Courtyard (or in the Band Room if the weather is bad)
  • We've changed our Saturday schedule a little bit so that we can warm-up at Sunset Stadium before we go to Yakima, so we'll have everyone reporting at 7:00AM IN-UNIFORM and then move out to the Stadium for a 7:30AM run-thru before leaving at 8:00AM FOR YAKIMA
SO, here we go with an exciting 2 weeks (after one more day-off):
