Band Update – 8/2/16


We are off to another good week of camp! You’re in for quite a treat on Thursday night! However, we do have quite a few members that are missing for doctors appointments and many other commitments – please plan ahead – we need everyone at camp all day every day!

Here is the plan for the week:

  • Wednesday – Camp 8am-5pm, AHS. Lunch is being catered by Rolling Hills Golf Course thanks to Tom Long and Vern Van Hoy!
  • Thursday – Camp 8am – 3pm, AHS. Lunch is being provided by ABOB (Walking Tacos!!!). Camp will dismiss at 3pm so students can go home and shower for the parent performance. 
    • 5:30pm – Meet at Public School Stadium (West) – students meet down by the trailer.
      • Dress: Red Tshirt (any school appropriate shirt), khaki shorts, long black socks, black marching shoes.
    • 6:30pm – Parent Performance Begins! Please invite anyone who is interested! We’re ready to show you what we’ve put together so far!
    • After the parent performance: Ice Cream Social at Shiver’s – let’s meet up for some ice cream to celebrate  a successful band camp! Thursday, August 4, we can meet at Shiver’s Frozen Custard from 7-9pm. Proceeds from that time frame will go to ABOB! You do have to park and order (drive thru doesn’t count) – the 100 staff will be heading that way after the parent performance – meet us there!
  • Forms: Quite a few folks are still getting these in – thanks! Please do! We need the Medical information forms ASAP, and we will be ordering the show shirts shortly. Please get the orders in!

  • The $50 Band Fee is also past due. Feel free to pay in installments – $25 in June and $25 in July. Checks made payable to ABOB. Please let me know if you would prefer to pay at a different time. These funds help provide supplies for camp. If you would prefer to pay online, please click here. Thanks for the help!
  • AHS Registration – please do not plan on missing any part of camp to go register for the school year – students may go during lunch or can head up to the cafeteria immediately after camp. Thanks for your help with this!

Some calendar items:

  • ABOB Night at Roma’s Pizza will be on Wednesday, August 10 throughout their business hours (11am-10pm). No flier needed, and you can carry out orders – simply mention the ABOB fundraiser when you’re there! It’ll be a great event!
  • A calendar change: The Red & Gray Scrimmage will be on Friday, August 19. The calendar says Friday, August 26 – the football team has an away game in Rock Island that week. Please make the change!

I believe that’s all for now! Parents feel free to stop by band camp and see what’s going on! We’re looking forward to a great two weeks.
