A reminder that our first performance is at our Home Show Indoor Competition on Saturday, March 18. Please make sure that you have everything you need for your uniform by then: PLAIN black shirt OR Percussion Ensemble Polo, Black pants, and black (or as dark as you have) shoes. Plan on report time being about 9 AM that day, and the event will go until about 6 PM. ALL MEMBERS NEED TO BE PRESENT FOR THE FULL EVENT — please block off that day on your calendar!

Thank you and have a great weekend! See you TUESDAY!
