Hello Band Families,
This is an emergency message.
We talked about the Montrose Band at Hanover, but I now understand that the official invitation did not go out until Monday night at 5:30 PM and it only went to this year’s 11th and 12th graders…10th graders didn’t receive the message. As a result, there are not many kids signed up yet, even though I know 20-30 of the marching band members indicated they wanted to play. So….we need to move the needle on this and we need to do it quickly. If a band does not show up to play at Montrose it will absolutely reflect badly on our program. Here is the message that was sent out Monday night. Get the word out…get your friends to play…contact older brothers and sisters and alumni..call the number listed below to let Mr. Bauman and Mr. Knutson know that you are playing on Sunday.
Hello. This is Tom Bauman, Activities Director at Buffalo High School. Mr. Knutson and I are trying to get the word out to band members at BHS who would be available to participate in a 25-30 member BHS Pep Band. The band will be pulled on a parade trailer and is scheduled to play in the Montrose Parade on Sunday, August 17th.
Students would be asked to meet at BHS in the cafeteria that morning at 10am for organization, bused to Montrose at approximately 11am, participate in the parade scheduled at 1pm, and be back at BHS around3pm. We are hoping this will be a fun event and lunch will be provided. We ask that participating students wear a purple t-shirt or something similar, something that would represent school spirit. The event will also be counted as 1 A and I point for 1st quarter at school.
If you are interested in participating, please call Barb McIntosh at 763-682-8106 by Wednesday, August 13th to confirm your spot. If you reach voicemail, please leave your name, type of instrument you would be playing and a phone number for us to confirm with you. Thank you for helping us out and phone number for us to confirm with you. Thank you for helping us out and……FIRE UP!!!
