I would like to welcome eve-ryone to prepare for anoth-er exciting season of “Marching Band!” The dates for this year’s camp have been scheduled and solidified. The Riverside King Band and Color Guard will debut year number thir-teen under the direction of Mr. Charles Gray!
Please be sure to read eve-rything in this newsletter together. You will find a wealth of information in this mailer that applies to you. There are band camp dates, schedules, letters of interest, Booster Club news, and in-formation regarding help that is needed by you! These are just a few of the things that you will find in this newsletter.
Remember, Band and Color Guard camp attendance is essential for the success of our program! All woodwinds, brass, pit, battery, and color guard members should be in attendance the entire 4 weeks of camp!
For those of you new to the idea, “Band Camp” is a time when all corps mem-bers get together to learn how to march, learn their drill, and work on their mu-sic or movement. This is a time that we learn the style of the “King Band” and pre-pare for the competitive season ahead of us. We must have everyone there so that we may achieve our highest standards!!…Band Camp is MANDATORY to help “Guarantee” a spot in the drill for the competitive field show. All members MUST be at camp! During his period, all members will be fitted for uniforms. Also, if you don’t have a ride to camp for the given hours, arrange a ride for yourself ahead of time or set up a car pool…PLAN AHEAD!!!
I will see all of you on the first day of Band Camp, Monday, July 31st, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. SHARP!
