If you haven't yet paid the Championship costs, now is the time.
The $250 amount covers your student's transportation to/from Clovis, as well as while in Clovis; two nights hotel stay, and a group dinner on Saturday. This cost is not a fundraiser for the program, it only covers the expenses that are incurred.
The following is a brief glance as to how the weekend is planned, so you are aware of your student's schedule. There are a few details to figure out yet and we will share a more detailed itinerary as we get closer.
Friday, November 17
The students will have rehearsal after school from 3:30pm until 5:30pm. The students will then get into full uniform for the Friends & Family show which begins at 6pm. Invite all your friends, neighbors and family! After the show, the students will load the truck and bus, and will head to Clovis. We will arrive in Clovis about midnight.
Saturday, November 18
The student's will have a music rehearsal in the morning, be free to grab lunch, have a little down time, and then depart for competition in the late afternoon. LCHS will perform at 9:17pm at Buchanan High School in Clovis. (We are currently looking at dinner options for the entire band as this is usually a group meal -- we'll keep you posted.)
Sunday, November 19
If our Marching Spartans place well in Saturday's performance, they will perform on Sunday (usually late morning, early afternoon) at Fresno State. Depending on awards timing, we will load and head for home, usually stopping for food along the way. We should arrive back at the band room around 8pm.
Please remember, this is a basic guideline, more details will follow.
Chaperones will be Needed
Chaperone will be needed to ride the bus (it's a charter bus) and to check rooms at lights out. We will also need volunteers to help plume, gauntlet, and push equipment just like at all the competitions. It really is a great weekend to enjoy the students and all the work they have done throughout the season. Please consider making the trip and joining us.
This year the band and color guard will be staying at:
835 Gettysburg Ave.
The parent block is set. We have seven rooms at the rate of $145/night + tax. The rooms are king suites. Please contact our group reps directory to reserve one of these rooms. Please do not call the front desk. State that you are with the, "La Canada High School Marching Band Parent Block."
