Contest info- Attention FBB Band Parents and Supporters!

We are only 1 week away from the start of our marching competitions! Please make arrangements to come out and be loud and proud in the stadiums when we perform. Your support from the stands plays a huge role in our performance and in influencing the crowd (and judges).

As of today, the band competitions are planning to return to their normal pre-covid routine. Which means we will be able to watch other bands from the stands, go to concessions, buy souvenirs, and have Finals performances! We are glad to get to return to this normal routine for marching competition, however, we still ask that everyone take precautions to be safe as much as possible. We will pass out FBB masks and we are encouraging students to wear them any time we are not playing.

As you know we need a lot of parent help with our show. We have 7 large screens, a Normandy drop ship and a submarine to move on and off the field. As well as all of the guard, front ensemble and drum major equipment. Please HELP as much as you can.

 

Always bring full water jugs to games and competitions.

Game nights we wear Blue Drifits under our bibbers.

Competition days we wear our show shirts under our bibbers.

We will provide meals on competition days, but there will be time for concessions stops by the band students, so please have a little $ for those times.

Parents, it is OK for you to cheer for the band during the performance. Especially during those big moments in the music or marching the drill. (Just no air horns, or cowbells or other noise makers). You may clap after solos, and you may cheer after the big moments with the guard, such as the sabre and rifle catches by our awesome guard seniors. And of course, at the end of the show, stand up and be loud and proud!

Thank you for your support of our FBB!

 

Go Bears!

FBB to STATE 2021
