4. Schedule at the competition

To view the schedule, please visit this link.

In inclement weather, any changes & decisions will be made immediately before a performance.

 

Please assume any competition is continuing as planned unless otherwise communicated by the directors.

 

Due to the expenses of the program, school instruments & equipment, we will not perform in the rain at home football games or competitions (including the state championships).

Competition hosts will usually move the performances indoors for a standstill competition if the weather is unsuitable for performing.  However, if the performances are not moved indoors, we may still cancel our performance in consideration of the equipment. 

 

This would be a difficult decision but necessary to protect the financial investments of our marching band and its students.
