Stadium Seating Update

Dear Band Families,  Sign-up sheets for the Saturday, August 25, stadium seating installation at Kroger Field will go up in the band room Friday afternoon, 8/10. All HC Band students are expected to sign up for and participate in one shift. As with all HC Band activities, parent support is crucial to our success, so please plan to sign up with your student. Other family members are welcome to join, as well! The more people we have, the faster it goes! This is a great chance for the students to preview the site of this year’s KMEA Marching Championships!

Again, students working Bingo that night are excused. Also, we are aware that marchers will be coming off a camp day of 8:00am – 2:00pm. We apologize, but our weekend dates to work with UK were quite limited.

Saturday, August 25
– Shift A, 6:00-9:00 p.m. We need 25 students and at least 5 adults for this shift.
– Shift B, 7:00-10:00 p.m. We need 75 students and at least 15 adults for this shift.
– Shift C, 8:00-11:00 p.m. We need 50 students and at least 10 adults for this shift.

Water and snacks will be provided, but please be sure to eat supper before you arrive. No special skills with tools are required. If you can, please bring a 9/16-inch socket (hand or cordless drill-mount) or wrench, and vise-grips. Make sure to mark or label your tools.

Additional information about parking, entrance gate, etc., will go out closer to the date. Also remember that we’ll be installing more seats Wednesday, August 29. That evening will be to finish up anything remaining, and to install perhaps a few late additions.

Parents can sign up at the potluck and parent show this Friday (see Drew or Michelle Slayton) or via email below – please be sure to include what shift you can work and if you are willing to be a parent team leader.

More info to follow. If you have questions, please e-mail …
