Hi Mom! We're On TV!!!

The Tigard/Tualatin football game on Friday October 4 (next week) has been selected as the Game O' the Week for KATU - yay! And what that means to us is, assuming we win, KATU will broadcast their High School Blitz program LIVE from Tigard High that night, and we'll be the in-house band! Double yay! High School Blitz airs LIVE from 11:30 - 12 midnight. Yes, that's really late, but it's ok - we can all sleep in on Saturday. Yes, even Marching Band, because our competition prelim performance isn't until mid-afternoon!

Call time for Friday's TV performance will be 11 pm. Hey, maybe we can get some nice people to buy pizza for us! If so, we'll probably get  together around 10:30. (And BTW, if for some strange reason Tigard DOES NOT WIN, we WILL NOT be on TV - Tualatin will. That is a very remote possibility. This website and Facebook will be updated with game results that night.)

To make sure we're able to get everything done that we need to, pit members will meet at THS at 3:30 to load the trailer and truck for the Southridge show. (We'll plan to load the rest of the instruments - drums, large horns, etc - Saturday before we leave. Southridge schedule will be posted soon.)

If you CAN NOT come to the TV performance, please send McKee an email. That way, we'll know what our instrumentation looks like.

THS Band on TV?? YAY!

Special Message Only for Those Who Worked Fireworks

Did YOU work at one of the THS Band Boosters' Fireworks Stands this year? Most excellent! YOU deserve a treat! How about a BBQ at McKee's house? Good? Good! 
We'll gather, students and adults alike, this coming Thursday evening at 6pm for BBQ, fellowship, and swimming for those who are interested.

Now, you may be wondering if you can bring along your special BBF, your mama, your grandpa, or your little sister. Yes, but ONLY if they worked at the Fireworks Stand too! (We'll have other gatherings where everyone and anyone can come, but not this time.)

Please RSVP to by Wednesday, so we can make sure to have enough food.

Sell Those Books!

Are YOU selling Entertainment Books to earn $$ for your Band Account? Remember, for each book you sell, $12 will go in to your very own Band Account, which you can then use to pay fees, buy band-related supplies, or even put towards the Spring Disney Trip!!

You can even sell Entertainment Books to people who live in other parts of the country - really! We'll add information right here in this space early next week to help you with everything you need to sell those E-Books to your friends and family who live away from the Portland area.

Meanwhile, sell as many books as you can! Don't forget:
  • The selling price is $25 each.
  • The 2014 E-Book can be used RIGHT NOW, and is good all the way through December 2014!
  • We can take checks or cash. Checks should be made out to THS Band Boosters.
  • See McKee for additional E-Books.
Yay for Entertainment Books!
