SEPTEMBER 22, 2018, SATURDAY - HERD OF THUNDER BAND DAY

The Chamberlain Band is looking forward to the University of South Florida's Herd of Thunder Band Day on Saturday September 22nd. Permission slips have already been handed out for those interested and is also attached to this email AND posted on CHARMS. Cost is $32.00 and includes a t-shirt, meal, half-time performance with USF, and a game ticket against East Carolina University. If your student was unable to attend band day at FSU (or loved it so much they want to re-live it!!), I highly encourage them to participate in this unforgettable event.

Parents and students,

As many of you know, a portion of our band will be participating in USF's Herd of Thunder Band Day this weekend at Fowler Field and Raymond James Stadium. This is an awesome experience where members of the Chamberlain Band will join the USF H.O.T. Band and with bands from around the state of Florida for an unforgettable half-time performance this Saturday September 22nd.  Thank you all for your patience, as ESPN and USF has only recently published the game-day schedule which is attached. 

Please notice that all students and chaperones must arrive at Fowler Field on USF's campus no later than 11:30am with their instruments, and will then need to arrive at Raymond James Stadium (Loading Dock B) no later than 5:00pm. Kick-off will occur at 8pm. All students must have transportation to and from the stadium. 

REMINDER: The Chamberlain Band had 55 students sign up to attend HOT Day and are still awaiting payments/permission slips from some. It is very important that ALL students who signed up (or who would like to attend) bring in their money and permission slips immediately, as we are financially responsible for all 55 members who signed up. Any chaperones who are willing to attend would be greatly appreciated. 

Go Bulls and GO CHIEFS!!

-Mrs. Griffis
