Many things depend on what happens next. If we make Finals (top 12 bands of the day), we will be assigned a finals performance time. If that happens, prepare to be in Oologah for quite some time, so bring money for dinner at the stadium. Massing (announcement of places and awards for finals competition) will occur at 9:30 pm that night, after all bands have marched. This is what we want, obviously. After that, we load and leave, and we expect to be home around midnight. Make sure to bring items to make yourself comfortable during the day: extra clothes of varying warmth (it will be hot during the day and cold at night), pillows, HOMEWORK, games, etc, as it be a very long day should we make finals. In the event we are not one of the top 12 bands, we will depart for Sallisaw immediately. Either way, we will carry ourselves with pride and humility. I’m very excited to begin contest season, but a few things to note:
1. Get plenty of rest and fluids when possible. During a break, REST and drink water as these times are few and far between and desperately needed.
2. NEVER do anything that would reflect negatively on the city of Sallisaw or our band.
3. Be aware of all schedules, and check the website often for updates.
4. ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE! It’s a blast and is over far too soon, enjoy the moment while you can.
Congratulations to our Band Royalty!
