This week offers some exciting challenges! Number 1: we have our first marching competition at the Midsouth Marching Band Festival in Gadsden, AL on Saturday, Sept. 27. The schedule is still pending but I do know that since we are in the large class we will probably perform later in the evening. I will let you know as soon as I find out. Number 2: we get to visit the brand new Helena HS on Friday evening! The bus will leave at 5:15 p.m. Students can stay after school on Friday. Please make your own arrangements for food after school/before we leave for the ballgame. We will be wearing our uniforms on the bus as it is local and only about 20 minutes away from Chelsea. Please make sure that you sign the bus list on the white board. It will double for the game on Friday evening and for the competition on Saturday. Field Show t-shirt under our uniform coats for both events.
