You may decorate your instruments, hats, uniforms for the pep rally and parade. We ask that it is non-permanent and non-destructive. Go ahead and show your spirit in responsible ways. We ask that any such decorations be removed before we play our show at halftime. Post show - the pit, backdrops, guard, and seesaw will clear the field. Hornline/drumline will remain on field and form an arc as the backdrop for the homecoming court.
Score sheets and judge commentary are now available on our Competition Results page. You have assigned listening based on your section:
All Instrumentalists: Please listen to Ensemble Music, Field Music, and Field Visual.
Guard: Please listen to Overall Effect - Visual and Auxiliary.
Drumline: Please listen to Percussion. (Unfortunately his recording cut off after only 1:30.)
