We are in the midst of our Winter Drumline season, and are busy making plans for hosting the WGI Regional Competition on Saturday, March 22. This event brings approximately 20 drumlines to our school for a full day of competition. We hope you will mark this date on your calendars, and come out to support our own Herd Winter Drumline…
Hosting a large event like this requires the help of many families, both on the day of the event, and in the days leading up to it. While you may not currently have a student in the drumline, we hope you will support our group in one of the following ways:
Each year we have a prize table for the spectators and drumline participants. Winning tickets are drawn throughout the day. We like to include a wide variety of prizes, keeping in mind that many of the spectators are not from the Buffalo area. Some ideas are:
- Game/Event Tickets (Twins, Gophers, Renaissance Festival, etc)
- Gift Cards - Best Buy, Caribou, Starbucks, Target, Home Depot, Cub, Barnes & Noble etc. (Suggested minimum value of $20)
- Many stores now have kiosks where you can choose from a variety of gift cards, making it an easy item to pick up!
- Baskets – 31 , Pampered Chef, Norwex, any of the home party groups…or put together a themed basket of your choice such as family movie night (DVDs/Candy/popcorn), kitchen ware, Coffee Lovers (cups and flavored coffees) Fitness items, sporting goods, hand crafted items, etc..
Prize donations will be accepted now through March 19th.
Pop, water, juice or baked goods, for example.
On the day of the event, these opportunities are available - Even if you only have a couple of hours, it helps us tremendously!
You will be the contact for a visiting drumline, leading them through the school to the practice and performance areas, and helping to keep them on schedule.
You will get to watch the drumlines as they rehearse, and keep things moving on time.
Cashier, fill orders and help hungry students and spectators.
Please tell your students as well – it’s a great way for them to volunteer with a BHS music group!
