Roosevelt Band & Colorguard October Updates

Boosters

At the last booster meeting, we decided to move booster meetings to the first Monday of the month. That seemed to work for more people. The next meeting is, Monday 10/3 at 6:15pm in the band room.

Boosters will be selling hamburger, chips, and drink combos at home games again 10/7, 10/21, and 10/28. We could always use more help and rotate people through. We've been loading up from the band room at 4:30pm for past games. You get in the game for free if you're helping out.

If you'd like a band t-shirt, extras are available in all sizes S-XXXXL $10.


Rehearsals

There are no Monday rehearsals 10/10 (Teacher meeting day/No school) and 10/31 (Halloween).


Parades

10/08 An itinerary for the Reedley Fiesta Parade will go out when the information is received from the parade organizers. Call is likely 8:00am with an 8:30 bus departure. The parade starts at 10:00am. The parade route usually runs south on G Street from Reedley High School. We will need a couple volunteers to walk with the band and help keep water bottles full.

10/29 The parade for the Selma Band Review usually begins at 9:00am. The review area is on High Street in Downtown Selma. Call time will be announced when the parade lineup is published. In past years, our time in the review area has been between 10am and 11am. Again, we will need a couple volunteers to walk with the band and help keep water bottles full.

11/05 The Pismo Beach Band Review is an all-day trip. Busses depart RHS at 5:00am! The review typically starts at 9:00am and we're in the competition sometime between 10am and 11am. If you are planning on making the journey to Pismo, we will need help with preparing and serving lunch to the band.

10/14 vs. Hoover @ McLane is an "away" game. The band will not take the field. Band t-shirts and pep band in the stands only.
