Hello friends - hope you're enjoying your three-day weekend away from good ol' THS. We've got a busy week ahead of us! Here's what's on tap:
  • Tuesday - Marching Band Preview Clinic! Like we discussed at last week's concert, this Tuesday is the 1st of two opportunities for drummers and others to come and check out what Marching Band may have in store for you. Percussion? Winds? Color guard? You should all come! We'll start at 5 and finish up around 8.
  • Wednesday - Parade Rehearsal! ALL paraders: drums, winds, guard - even Tigerettes! 3-5pm. BE THERE!
  • Thursday - Jazz Concert! Including jazz bands from THS, Twality, and Fowler. 6pm call, 7:30 concert. Not in Jazz Band? Come and be part of the audience! 
  • Saturday - Starlight Parade! ALL paraders! We are parade entry #92 - whew! 7:45pm call. Band room doors open at 7:30. Pep tee, black socks, marching shoes. Full uniform, minus shako.
 And now a word from McKee: WATER. Yes, it's been wet and chilly the past week. But that will be fading away and we'll be warm and sunny by parade day. So you need to start hydrating. Now. 

Whoo hoo!
