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.

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!
