Important Competition Day Logistics

  1. Students must wear their blue show tee shirt under their uniform on Saturday.
  2. We will be feeding our students a simple but nourishing dinner BEFORE our performance in order to leave Greene Central in a timely manner following the awards ceremony.  
  3. We enthusiastically invite all parents, family, and friends to travel to Greene Central H.S. to enjoy our performance and route on our CHAMPION band!  This area has been through some very difficult times due to the flooding caused by hurricane Matthew…  Let’s come out to support this resilient community!
  4. Also, the East Carolina University Marching Pirates are scheduled to perform following our performance!

Other Noteworthy Items:

  1. Our performance time at Appalachian State University next Saturday is 7:10pm.
  2. We will be photographing our marching students during the school day next week (beginning Monday, Oct. 24).  Information to follow under separate cover.
  3. Start talking up our MATTRESS SALE on November 12th!  We are DREAMING of purchasing a semi truck for our band.  You’ll dream better on a nice mattress
