I make it a priority to inform you as soon as I can when there are developments so that you may be organized and plan for your families. Here are a few new things to make note of:
- Manatee County has approved the plan for Hurricane Make-up days. We will now gain a rehearsal back in the process. You may recall that we lost a Thursday, Friday game and Saturday camp because of Hermine. Now a bit of luck sways back in our favor......
Wednesday, OCTOBER 5th will be a full day of school, and as a result, WE WILL HAVE OUR NORMAL 2:30-5PM SECTIONAL DAY. Our first competition is 3 days later on the 8th. An additional day to build confidence and repetition is a WIN for our program! It will show up in the score.
Our Oct 22 MPA Festival/FMBC Regional is taking shape. I had a few parents contact me to tell me their students are scheduled for the ACT that day. I immediately contacted the show coordinator to ask for a change in performance. They accommodated my request and have scheduled us to perform LAST! A great show of hospitality by District 10. That will be 1:30pm. I am asking for any students taking the ACT that day to see me immediately so that we can coordinate a carpool. We will have your instruments ready, your SuperSuit ready and a spot in twos at the gate. Sleep well the night before, do a great job on the test and then come and help us earn a straight Superior rating :) We need you! Then we will make our way back to the Suncoast to compete at the Braden River FMBC Regional.
I am attaching a screen shot of the FMBC seeding chart. As you can see, 4A is again the shoot-out class! 9 great bands with histories of success. Let's do everything we can to be the best LRHS band we can be to make Nov 12 a special day!!
"You can't control the outcome, but you CAN control your decisions along the way" - a great quote that I have always liked. Not mine, but I like it.
Thank You for your flexibility and work ethic. Competition Season is here!
