During Halftime we will perform the Freshman Night Music and perhaps one other tune.  You need to have flip folders for the game!  The following LINK will take you to the “music” page where you can print the freshman night music.

If you are UNABLE to attend the game please fill out this form so that we can plan the half-time show.  THIS FORM MUST BE FILLED OUT BY 3:00pm on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2012!!!


All parkas must be hung up to dry!  Turn the parka inside out on Saturday night to make sure the inside is dry by Sunday.  Parkas may be put in the dryer, inside out, on low heat, if needed.

Uniforms must be hung up, NOT in the garment bag, to dry.  Hang jacket and pants separately if they are really wet.  Do NOT put the uniform in the dryer.  Hang the jacket and pants correctly on the uniform hanger and put in the garment bag to return on Sunday.

Please make sure all other uniform parts are dried out.  The hat and gauntlets should not be put in the hat box until they are completely dry.  Lay the gauntlets flat to dry.  Wipe the hat dry inside and out with paper towels or a soft cloth.  Lay out your shoes and gloves out to dry too.

VERY IMPORTANT – Turn in the parka (put on the correct bag in the hallway) and uniform (hang in your uniform box) BEFORE you go out to the field for rehearsal on Sunday!
