-run all repertoire, including the national anthem.

-band members must check their uniforms and confirm that they are 100% fine with Mr. Flygt.  band members must also complete shoe form.

-are there any tunes that we want to run all together (flag, majorettes, band)? from this list (2nd line? crusher, heart of steel, shout it out, spottie, varsity anthem, O, cash, spin, say my name, go lane go).

-this morning you can have the time to do what you need to do majorettes and flags.  band we will run all of our tunes multiple times, hit hips and can’t hold us, and double check uniforms.

-this afternoon will be a little different.  we are going to take a break like 12:15 pm – 2:00 pm.  at 1:15 could drumline rehearse somewhere outside O (spot check repertoire). we are painting 9 lines on the front lawn (30 – 30) and will have the hash marked.  we will be practicing our routine on the lawn from at least 3-5.  we need to walk through a few drills first and then get through can’t hold us.  this is the first time we have painted lines and i am not sure if it will take less or more time.

-next week is spirit week! i am proud of you all.  thank you.
