What is UP People?

This is that email I’ve been warning was coming!

There a BUNCH of DATES and VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES COMING UP!

Next Tuesday, Oct 23rd, at 630p, there will be a Luau Committee meeting in the band room.. What? You haven’t heard that there’s going to be a LUAU? Yes! This Luau will be an ADULT-ONLY event on February 2nd at Coconut Point Hyatt. This event is still in the planning stages. Would you like to be on the ground floor of it? Come to the meeting to get involved. There will be need of volunteers galore, donations big and small, and bring your fun-self! It’s going to be a blast!

Next Friday, Oct 26th, is our LAST home game. And the following Friday, Nov 2nd, is our LAST game of the season. It’s an away game at Golden Gate HS. And, just a reminder, this Friday, is the senior night for cheer and football. The visiting team will play during halftime and we will play after the game.  The same will happen next week when itis our band seniors’ turn. Here is that link again in case you STILL haven’t filled it out SENIORS!!:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd5mFIH0OvAQn2Kq6EYcOKNlq1f7IAftl6pIyyL67DPF_Hl_Q/viewform

Next Saturday, Oct 27th, is the MPA’s (Marching Performance Assessments). These will be happening at Barron Collier HS. Chaperone call time is 430p, kids 5p. Buses leave at 530p. Perfoming at 745p, eating after the performance…so eat before you get to school this day!

Now, keep in mind, even though Marching Season is coming to a close, this DOESN’T mean that we Band Boosters take a break! There is A LOT coming up in our concert season. For instance there is off-season concessions for basketball, soccer, and lacrosse; PRISM concert; Honor Band; and the All-American Football Tournament. We will need lots of bodies and smiles! More specific information on these events as they come a little closer.

Do you own a local business or know someone who does? We are looking for ticket sponsors for our upcoming PRISM concerts. We perform 3 shows and the sponsor can put a coupon and/or their business information on the back as well as in the program and a link to their business on our website. If you are interested, please contact Davina at gchsprismconcert@yahoo.com.

And lastly, our band historians are still looking for band pictures. If you have any, please send them to GCHMBHistorians@gmail.com.
