Winterguard Competition Hosted by Bowie Band
Dear Parents and Guardians:
by Board of Director VP Kim Mayer
This is just a reminder of the upcoming NTCA Winter Guard/Drum Line Contest on March 8th.
This event is sponsored by James Bowie High School Band and NTCA. We have 65-66 Units of guard and drum lines from area schools coming to Bowie for this contest.
Ways to help:
Donate $ 10 towards buying food items to sell in concessions, or any amount would be great to defer the Band Booster costs. Bring an envelope to the band directors marked “Donation for Competition” and they will forward it to the board.
Items to sell in concessions (bring by March 5th):
Drinks: Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Mr. Pibb (12 oz. cans) and water
Candy: regular size…Snickers, Kit Kat, etc…(boxes are sold at Sam’s and Costco)
Chips: Frito Lay Variety Packs (1 oz. packages) (sold at Sam’s and Costco in boxes or stores in variety packs)
Individually wrapped snacks: crackers, granola bars, cookies, etc.
Other items: Paper Towels, napkins, band aids (First Aid Station needs)
The following items should be brought between March 4-6th. Please contact me before March 4th to let me know you plan on bringing the items below. That way we will not have to buy them from the stores.
Brownies, Large Muffins, Homemade cookies, NO CUPCAKES, Thanks!
We NEED approved volunteers to come work with us at this event. Please contact me ASAP to the phone or email listed below. There are 4 different shifts to work: 1st shift 7 am – 1:00 pm, 2nd shift 12:30 – 6:00, 3rd Shift 5:30-11:00, and Clean-Up Crew from 7:00 – 11:30. We could use you all day, if possible, but will be happy to have you help when you are able. Also, the Clean-Up Crew is appreciated because the board has been on their feet all day on concrete, and by the end of the day, we are usually exhausted. It would help us leave much quicker.
(Please notice that the length of time for 3rd shift has changed due to an increased amount of participants at the contest.)
Thank you for your support of your child and Bowie Band!
Yours in the “Spirit of the Volunteers,”
Band Booster Board
