Marching 100 Info:

Please note: we’re just trying to get the information that we currently have out for summer planning. All dates are subject to change! We’ll keep you informed as we know.

Just for planning purposes, Band Camp is scheduled for Monday, July 25 – Thursday, August 4. 8am – 4pm.

We are planning on the usual Tuesday evenings 6-8:30pm. There may be some changes to the parade schedule this summer – once we get the calendar planned we’ll send it out!

2016-2017 is a trip year! We don’t have definite dates/locations yet, but this is a “small” trip, so we’re looking in the $500-$600 range. We will have fundraising – if you’re interested/available to help plan fundraisers please let me know!

The current plan is to kick off the trip fundraising/planning at the annual Marching 100 kick off meeting – the plan is to have that in March!

Hopefully that helps with some planning – let us know if you have any questions.
