     We will be learning drill and attempt to play and march possibly as many as 15 pages of drill!!
Bring a good snack!! there will be a 20-minute snack break at 7pm, however students will not be allowed to leave rehearsal, so pack something to eat or have someone bring it to you! 
     All rehearsals are mandatory. If a student is absent from any part of rehearsal, it may necessitate that student being written out of the part of the show that is being learned. 
     Please be on time with athletic clothes, athletic shoes, a big hat, sunscreen, lots of cold water, and a great work ethic!
