Keep your schedule flexible for the possibility of performing in the playoffs! These games will be on either Friday night or Saturday afternoon. We WILL perform in playoff games if possible. The only reasons that the band will not perform would be due to prior commitments inclucing IMEA Concert Band Festival on Nov. 2 or IMEA Jazz Festival Nov. 9. Each of these events have already been scheduled.

4:30 PM - Meet at turf for quick warm up and run through of the show.

7:00 PM - Kick Off (non competitive students will be dismissed at this time) - Competitive students will sit in the bleachers and play stands tunes. When 10 minutes are remaining in the 2nd quarter, we will move to behind the concessions stand (band trailers) and put on your spider gear.  With 5 minutes left in 2nd quarter, seniors and parents line up on the track in alphabetical order (a on side 2) for senior night. We will move quickly for this so be ready. 
7:45 PM - Approximate time for halftime - after halftime you will be dismissed for third quarter. We will need to be back in the stands at the start of the 4th quarter. 
10:15 PM - After the game, we return to central terrace and perform our traditional spiral. You will put equipment and gear away in its rightful place. 

Times may adjust slightly as instructions may be given.

During the first half of the game we will SIT in the bleachers in your section. You may not randomly get up and wander around. You must stay with the band and in your section. Your non band friends may not visit with you until the 3rd quarter. At 2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, you must make your way to your seats in the bleachers.
