Please Don't Forget ...


Remember that we are to behave in a mature manner at all times on this trip. Do NOT say anything negative about another group, or EVEN ANOTHER PERSON. There's no need for it. If you can't say anything nice, you're looking at it the wrong way.

Do not leave trash on the bus. Do not change buses during the trip without permission from Mr. Mabrey. This is how we take roll.

No two people are allowed to share a blanket on the bus. If you need one, bring your own.

NOBODY is allowed to leave the Arcadia Campus while we are there. Restrooms and food are all available at the school.

We will be stopping on the way home for dinner, so bring money for purchasing food. It will be a mall, so expect typical food court choices.

All uniforms are to be taken care of properly, hung up properly, and not left anywhere other than on the racks.


All Gloves must be cleaned and white again. Soak in a sink of warm water with just a little bit of bleach. Then rinse, put on, wash with hand soap, rinse again, and leave to dry.

Bring your own hair needs if your hair is to be put up. It helps with time.

Wear a t-shirt and shorts under your uniform. Bring your band polo shirt to wear AFTER the parade. Bring a light jacket to wear during dinner time.

Bring money for lunch and dinner. Boosters will provide a free morning snack/protein. Lunch cost will be minimal.

Bring a blanket and or pillow to help with your comfort on the bus.


We have been respectfully placed in Class A. All 10 groups are used to winning awards. Only 5 groups will go home with an award. Our goal is to make sure our score is competitive with our division regardless of placings. If we're close we know we were placed in the correct division. It's not about the award, but about making sure we have given our best performance of the year.
