News From Your Director

September 28, 2015

Dear Parents and Students,

What a wild Friday we all had! Fair Day always makes for a long day, and the rain delay at the game certainly didn't make it any shorter!

Well, we're officially into our "peak season," with our first marching contest coming up on Saturday. Our performance time at the Capital City Marching Contest (Burger Center in Austin) is 8:30 P.M. Our call time for Saturday will be 2:30 P.M. at Ranger Stadium. I have attached the full itinerary for those interested, but the other information parents should be aware of is that Students will be asked to bring their own "brown bag" meal for supper, as we will have to eat on the way to Austin. Parents, we hope that you will all join us at Burger Center to cheer for your Ranger Band on Saturday!

Please also remember that the Fajita Dinner/Silent Auction is coming up quickly and we still need many more items for the auction. In addition, ticket money is due on Wednesday. Thanks!

Looking ahead to the Saturday after the Fajita Dinner/Silent Auction (October 10th)... Call time for the Rocket Review will be 8:30 A.M. with a 3:00 P.M. performance time. I will send out that complete itinerary early next week.

That's all for now, have a GREAT RANGER DAY!

Matt Boening
