Surviving Band Camp 2014

Band Camp

Band camp is now officially in full swing! The band members are going to be hungry, tired and perhaps a bit cranky by the end of the day. In order to help make it through band camp, we have a few helpful tips to get to the end on a high note.

FIRST

  1. Come prepared. Instrument, music, chalk, name tag & anything else instructed to bring. Do this every day.

 
NUTRITION:

  1. Eat breakfast, even if it consists of toast only. Working in the heat, burning up energy on an empty stomach will make you sick. Avoid drinking milk and eating heavy foods such as pancakes.

Feed the Directors!

You Can Help

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! We need volunteers to provide lunch for our directors and instructors during band camp each day.

Each volunteer would be responsible for providing one lunch meal (i.e. spaghetti, subs, pulled pork, etc.). The meal should be brought to the Brass/Rehearsal room off of the band room around 11 am in the morning.

For more information and/or to sign up, please text Ronda Nelson at 270-307-5325.

Feed the Band Volunteers Wanted!

Feed the Band Volunteers Needed

If you are available to help Feed the Band during band camp or on weekends during school, please send an email to Ronda Nelson at: ambrose652001@yahoo.com and/or text her at 270-307-5325.

Our list of signups from parent’s night has been misplaced, so even if you signed up then, please give us another shout out.

We Want Your Cans!

Recycle Your Cans! Help the band!

From the Desk of Randy Mitchell: If the families in the band boosters will start saving their aluminum cans, I will be happy to do all the hauling to the recycler for you…..a full pickup load with attached trailer is worth over $100 ….. and there are over 200 families in band this year. That would be a lot of aluminum!

Please don’t save your pie plates, aluminum foil, etc…..they don’t take it. Just the beverage cans, gutters, garage doors that have been replaced, etc…….thousands of dollars is out there waiting on you to see it and bring it to us!
