Click Here for Printable Itinerary

Your students will need to bring all their luggage and items they will need for the Championship trip to school with them on Friday morning. We will store the luggage in the back room throughout the day.

Students will have rehearsal immediately following the school day and then perform at the Friends & Family show, load the truck and bus and head to Championships in Clovis.

Please note that over the weekend, we will have two, maybe three performances. For each of these performances they will need long black socks, clothes for under the uniform, and their marching shoes. Please pack accordingly.

A special note about long black socks… Your student will need long black socks for the Friends & Family performance. Please be sure they have their socks easy to get to and not in their luggage. We will not have 92 extra pair of black socks because their socks are packed. Just throwing that out there. 🙂

PLEASE invite your friends, families, teachers and the community to the Friends & Family Show! Here’s a link to the event you can share.

Costs

If you haven’t yet paid for the Championship trip, now is the time. Please remember that this trip is not a fundraiser… the costs cover the expenses of the transportation to get to/from Clovis, two nights stay at the hotel, and a group meal. We have tried very hard to limit the expenses associated with the trip. The cost per student is $230.

Checks can be made payable to “LCHS MPA” and placed in a envelope with the student’s name and deposited in the black box in the band room.

Bus Riders

We will need several bus riders for the trip to Clovis. Several of you have mentioned that you would be available and willing, but since Sandy didn’t keep a list and we need to finalize the bus lists, please send Sandy Miller a quick email and let her know that you are still planning on riding the bus. Thanks!

Other Volunteers

As with all competitions, we will need parent helpers to help plume, gauntlet, and push equipment as well as crowd cheerers! Please consider making the drive to Clovis… The students will appreciate your support!
