Hello Band Family,
I’d like to share information for the upcoming marching band competitions in October regarding where the band will be staying. The exact itinerary for both dates will be released closer to the performances, but if you’re planning to stay overnight, you may be interested in booking a hotel soon.
The times below are for preliminary performance times – the bands making finals and their performance times will be announced after all of the preliminary performances, usually around 4 pm on Saturday.
HMCB is currently scheduled to perform at 9:15 a.m. on October 5.
On October 4th, the band will travel to Muncie, Indiana and will spend the night at Northside Middle School located less than a mile from Ball State University (2000 W University Ave, Muncie, Indiana 47306 is the BSU address). Saturday, October 5, the band will perform at Ball State University and at the end of the competition day, we will travel to Richmond, Indiana to stay at Quality Inn and Suites (5501 National Road East, Richmond, Indiana 47374). If you book a room here, you can request a room in the “parent block” for Henry Clay HS Marching Band for a discounted rate as long as rooms are still available.
HCMB is currently scheduled to perform mid-morning on October 25.
October 25th, the band will travel to Indianapolis to perform at Lucas Oil Stadium (500 S Capitol Ave, Indianapolis, Indiana 46225). Upon completion of the day, the band will spend the night at SportZone (6601 Coffman Rd #2598, Indianapolis, Indiana 46268) located approximately 12 miles from Lucas Oil Stadium. On October 26th, the band will return to Lucas Oil Stadium and will travel home at the end of the competition day.
These events fill hotels quickly so if you are planning on traveling, it would be beneficial to book a room now. Please feel free to email if you have further questions and hope to see you there! Let’s all support the hard work our kiddos have put into the 2019 marching season!
