Championships Information

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!

Itinerary

Please download the full itinerary here.

Please note that all students will travel to Clovis as a group on charter buses, and will stay as a group at Hampton Inn. All students have been assigned rooms per the rooming list sign up.

Your student will need to bring spending money for dinner at In-and-Out on Friday evening, lunch on Saturday, any souvenirs they want to purchase at the Championships site, and dinner on the way home.

If you have a sewing machine, rotary cutters, cutting mats, or a tape measure, please bring it along. If you don’t have sewing experience, that’s OK too! We still need help pulling uniforms, rehanging, and other tasks. It’ll be fun!

This will be a memorable evening dedicated to the music of 7/8 students with many other surprises! We look forward to seeing you there.

Additionally, we are looking for 7/8 music parents to help us organize the event. This is a great and fun way to get involved in the Instrumental Music program. If you are interested, please contact Adam Kline.
