Championships are just around the corner… We’re still ironing out all the details, but are preliminary plans our outlined below.
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.
Friday, November 22nd
We’ll have a rehearsal after school until approx. 5:30pm. We’ll change into full uniform and will perform our 2019 show under the lights at the stadium for all Friends & Family. Admission will be free, so start inviting everyone! After the show, we’ll change, load the truck and be off to Clovis. There will be some sort of dinner, but we’re still working out the details on that one.
Saturday, November 23rd
Saturday morning, we’ll have breakfast at the hotel and then we’ll have rehearsal in the parking lot at the mall adjacent to the hotel to prepare for our Championship performance that evening. After rehearsal, the students will be on their own for lunch at one of the many food choices at the mall. We’ll regroup in mid-afternoon and travel to Kingsburg for our performance at 9:04pm. Dinner will be as a group and some sort of snacks will be served – again, details to follow.
Sunday, November 24th
We’ll find out at Awards on Saturday evening if we qualify for Grand Championships on Sunday. If we do, we’ll eat breakfast and prepare for performance. Grand Championships will also be held in Kingsburg.
A detailed itinerary will be provided soon, so keep an eye out.
