Times prior to the start of the game are adjusted based on the location of the game.

All students must be picked up no later than 30 minutes after return to Akins!
Expectations in the Stands
As always, our two beloved AEB rules apply:
Rule #1 - "Don't be stupid!"
Rule #2 - "If at any point you think you shouldn't... don't!"
Some other general reminders and guidelines to make sure we can do our job on Thursday or Friday night:
- Pay attention...you will be asked to play often and quickly.
- Stay in your section...do not "travel" throughout the setup.
- Do not play your instrument unless instructed by a director.
- Display good sportsmanship at all times.
- Be careful with your instrument...it's an expensive "toy".
- No non-band members in the band setup...this includes former band members and alumni.
- Students will not leave the setup any time without permission. Bathroom breaks will be given with permission from a chaperone and in groups of only two.
- Your uniform (summer or formal) must be worn correctly at all times.
- Follow all instructions from Drum Majors, Captains, and student leadership.
