HMK Weekend Update (09.23.11)

posted Sep 23, 2011, 11:12 AM by adam_gumble@hempfieldsd.org
Weather has forced us to make some tough decisions regarding tonight's game vs. Penn Manor.  The game WILL BE PLAYED as scheduled, therefore we have an obligation to the school community to have a presence at the game and perform at the highest possible level while taking into consideration the safety of our members and well-being of our equipment.  

ALL MEMBERS: Report @ 4:30 

Brass and Battery Percussion > Rehearse 4:30-5:30, then head to Penn Manor (Pep Band - NO FIELD SHOW)
Brass and Battery will head to the game to represent Hempfield!  Brass and Battery Percussion instruments are impervious to water and will therefore serve to enterain the troops and inspire the team in the dreary conditions.  We will wear jeans and stadium jackets (no uniforms).  Please wear additional water-resistant clothing if you have it available.  
NOTE: We will continually re-evaluate the weather situation and make decisions in the best interest of everyone involved.  

Woodwinds > 4:30-5:30 Rehearse, game attendance optional  
Woodwinds will rehearse until 5:30, then have the option of attending the Penn Manor game in jeans and stadium jacket.  Woodwinds will NOT take instruments with them to game as serious issues can arise when these instruments are exposed to anything "wet" (like rain!).  

Color Guard > Rehearse 4:30-7:00 PM
Guard will work on adding new work to the closer (and stay dry!).  You will likely be in the Franklin Gym due to Fall Play in Hackman.  

Pit Percussion > Rehearse 4:30-7:00 PM
Pit will finish learning Closer parts with Danny (and stay dry!).

Members Auditioning for County Chorus (Brass, Woodwind, or Percussion) > Rehearse 4:30-5:30, game attendance optional
You may rest your voice in order to prepare for your audition.

Tomorrow's schedule has not been affected.  In the event of dangerous weather (severe thunder), a call will be made by 1 PM.  I have every faith that the event will run smoothly and that we will have a GREAT performance!

Guard and Percussion @ 9 AM
Winds @ 11 AM (Band Room)
Load Truck @ 5:00 PM
Load Buses @ 6:00 PM
Perform @ 8:30 PM
Return @ 9:45 PM
