Marching Band: Info Sheet for Towson 10/16

posted Oct 8, 2010, 7:56 AM by Phil Barnes

Good morning,

 

Below is the info sheet for the USSBA competition at Towson University next Saturday. You can also download the pdf from the files section of the website, and I’ll be distributing hard copies today when we meet for the away trip.

 

Please be sure to buy your tickets from me in advance, rather than at the door. We have an obligation to the USSBA to sell at least 30 tickets! Tickets are $14 each (cash only please) for all ages.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions!
