Competition at CB South

We will be departing the morning football game early and travelling back to East where we will prepare for the night competition. Between rehearsal and the performance we will break for a pot-luck dinner (see the other announcement).

The competition will begin at 6:30 PM and will conclude with an awards assembly at 9:30. There are three bands in our competitive class, and the performances start at 8:15. Our performance is slated for 8:30. Students will not change out of uniform or eat at the competition. We will watch the host band from the track and stay there for awards. We will change and store our uniforms when we return to CB East.

Pot Luck Dinner for Students on Saturday

In order to insure that everyone has a decent meal in the midst of a busy day, we would like to host a pot luck dinner for the kids on Saturday afternoon. Please visit the sign-up genius to volunteer to bring some food. We have most of the requested items already covered - only a few volunteers left. If applicable, all personal items (like crock pots, coolers, serving dishes, etc.) can be picked up and taken home before the competition that night. No one has to miss the performance!

Chaperones, Equipment Crew, Concessions, etc.

If you have signed up to volunteer, but can't remember what your role was, click here to directly access the volunteer portion of the CB East Band Parent Volunteer Sign-Up Genius. Report times for each event will be updated the week of the event. If you have any questions, please contact the appropriate chairperson.

Chaperone Chair: Becky Connor
