Parents and Students — Carefully review these instructions:

  • Bring money for gloves if needed – $6.00
  • Have your band camp shirt to wear under your uniform.
  • Wear long white socks – plain, no stripes! (It’s good just to keep an extra pair of socks in your bag)
  • Bring white shorts to wear under your uniform.
  • If there is a problem with your uniform, see a member of the uniform team.
  • We always appear in public dressed in full uniform unless Mr. Smith or Mr. Bishop have informed the students otherwise.

Hair should not touch the collar when dressed in uniform, therefore, students with longer hair should bring items to secure their hair in a ponytail or purchase a wig cap.  Wig caps can be purchased from the Uniform Team for $1 for a package of 2 caps.

Have class – YOU are the “PRIDE OF THE BLUEGRASS”®! Always support other performing groups! Refuse to say anything negative, no matter what might be said to you.

 

Food for Tates Creek Contest

 

Cookies
The band loves cookies, brownies, and rice crispy treats on contest days.  If you can bake (or buy) 2 or 3 dozen cookies, deliver to Stacy Stone (a.k.a. ‘The Cookie Lady’) on Saturday morning as you drop off your student.  Due to allergies, please no peanut butter, nuts or sesame seeds.

Meals
Make sure students eat breakfast before practice begins at 8:00am on Saturday morning.  We will be serving lunch and dinner. We will have a vegetarian option for those students who have made this request. If your student will not eat the meals provided, please send a packed meal for them.  It will be a long day and no one should go hungry.
Lunch – Moe’s
Dinner – Papa John’s Pizza

Want to help serve lunch or dinner?
We need volunteers to help serve lunch and dinner on Saturday.  If you are interested in helping with lunch at Lafayette (serving at 11:15am) or dinner at Tates Creek (tentatively serving at 5:00pm), please contact Jane DeRossett (fullpantry@hotmail.com or 859-396-5387).
