We will let you take off the uniform jackets, if the weather is warm enough...but only if you have your member shirts on under it.
Guard - you will be wearing your super space suits from last season. We will not be in our competition uniforms yet.
We are also requesting the hornline and drumline to bring their hats, plumes, and uniform jackets to rehearsal Monday night. We will only be using them for the runthrough, but we want to give everyone the experience of what it will be like to perform with those on before Friday's show.
