Marching Crusaders: Final Schedule for Saturday, August 30 - First Home Game


It's here, our first performance of the season!  The BC community is thrilled to have a full marching band back on the field this year.  The support our entire ensemble is receiving from the BC administration, faculty and staff is awesome!

First, rehearsal reminders for Crusettes on Thursday, August 28, 7:00pm-9:00pm and Musicians on Friday, August 29, 3:00pm-4:30pm.


Our schedule for Saturday, August 30:
2:30pm - Report to BC for rehearsal (bring your uniforms, don't wear them to rehearsal)
4:00pm - Dinner (provided by Band Parents), load truck and dress in uniform
5:40pm - Bus departs for Dormont Stadium
6:00pm - Arrive at stadium, unload truck, Chaperones ready bleachers, Hospitality Committee prepare for visiting band and greet them upon their arrival
6:35pm - Tunnel for Pregame
7:00pm - Kickoff

Band members who drive may drive themselves to the stadium with an email from their parent/guardian to Mr. J stating they may do so.  All other band members must ride the bus to the stadium.  The bus will not be returning to BC following the game, therefore families should make transportation arrangements for their members.

Questions?  As always, email Mr. J

WE ARE BC!

Marching Crusaders: Remaining Schedule Finalized

The Marching Crusaders remaining summer and the fall schedule are finalized.  You'll notice the remaining rehearsals have been filled in.  In a few cases, there are conflicts between rehearsals, athletic practices and school schedules for our Apprentice Members.  Mr J is aware of those, but please email him with any questions.

The weather for the car wash tomorrow looks perfect!  Pass the word and drum up (pun is definitely intended) some business!
