Proud of you all for your effort so far! Let’s GO!!
Next, please see the attached BOA Louisville Regional Championship Itinerary for next week, Sat. 9/21. I wanted to release this today to give you a heads up on how to prepare next week. Please follow all details carefully! Parents, please understand that each pit crew member MUST have a field pass at national BOA shows. Anyone entering the field area without proper credentials causes a scoring penalty to the band. Chaperones will get a ticket and at a certain point will leave the band and will have to enter the stadium with other spectators, not the field area. Only pit crew members, staff, and students can enter the field next week with the proper passes. We will work through other national show details next week!
We are looking forward to an exciting start to the competition season! Let’s pack the stands tomorrow at Lafayette HS!
