Lindale High School: Area Marching Contest 2010


Schedule

Information for Area Marching Contest 2010

  

October 21, 2010

 Dear Parents,

 As you know, the “Pride of Lindale” qualified for the Area C UIL Marching Contest which will be held at Homer Bryce Stadium on the Stephen F. Austin State University Campus this Saturday, October 23rd.   We will march Prelims at 12:30 pm.  I am very proud of the kids and excited about the opportunity to perform and compete with the 3A Bands at the Area Contest.  There will be 23 bands at the Area Contest this year so 4 bands will advance to state. We will work hard and do our best.  That is all we can ask. 

 Here is some information about the day that should help with your plans.  There is an admission fee of $5.00 that will be good for both Prelims and Finals.  Be sure to keep your ticket or get your hand stamped if you leave the stadium.  I would encourage you to park on the home side parking or the Hall 20 parking lot.  It can get crowded in the bus parking lot.  We will feed the kids breakfast and dinner.  Please be sure the kids bring a sack lunch for the trip down.   I would have the kids bring a little money just in case they want a T-shirt or other snacks.  Rain is in the forecast Saturday, so be sure to bring some rain gear.  We could have rain delays, so be prepared for a long day.  After the band marches in prelims, we will be loading the busses and heading for Nacogdoches HS to rest and relax at their cafeteria.  I do not want the kids out in the weather or heat of the day.  I have told the kids to bring a blanket and pillow if they want to nap, and cards and games, or homework for the afternoon.  If we make finals I want them ready to go.  Enclosed you will find a schedule for the day and directions to the stadium. Finally, do not worry about buying patches at the contest.  We will order them when we get home.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call (903-881-4140 band hall 903-752-0390 cell) and as always, I look forward to seeing you there. Do not forget to cheer loud when the band takes the field.  Your support really gives us a boost of confidence and lifts our spirits. GO LINDALE BAND!   

 

Thanks,

Steven Moore

Director of Bands, Lindale ISD
