FROM THE BOOSTERS

SATURDAY PRACTICE

September 12th and 19th
To better prepare for our upcoming exhibition and competitions we will have extra rehearsals on September 12th and 19th from 9AM till 4PM. Lunch will be provided. Please remember to bring your water jugs and hydrate before practice begins!

SAVE-THE-DATE

September 15th
The Floyd County Marching Exhibition will be held on Tuesday, September 15th. More details and times will be announced as we get closer to this event.

HOMECOMING

September 18th
The homecoming game is always a big turnout so we need plenty of parent volunteers to run concessions. Band members and guard should plan for the homecoming parade after school. More details to be announced.

NEW!! DRAGON BAND RALLY TOWELS

a.k.a. “spirit rags”. These are available for $5 each at the home side concession stands and in the band room on Fridays. All proceeds go to the general band fund.

ARMUCHEE INVITATIONAL

Saturday, September 26th
Our first marching competition of the season will be at The Annual Armuchee Invitational on Saturday, September 26th. Performance time to be announced. We encourage all parents, families and friends to attend and to cheer on YOUR Dragon Band!  Remember to wear your Phantom tshirt and wave that spirit rag!

BOTTLED WATER DONATIONS

We are still accepting your cases of water for the band. Please consider dropping off two cases by the band room.

MANY MANY THANKS

. . . . . to our incredible volunteers that worked our first home game concessions. But we need more help for a successful season. Upcoming, “Youth Night” will be October 16th and the band will be collecting parking donations. We need additional volunteers to cover the entrances. Some of our regular concession workers have seniors in the band and later on in the season they would love to enjoy their band member on the field. We need more family members and friends to get involved now to learn how the Friday night concessions operate. Login to CHARMS to sign-up for a volunteer slot or contact a booster officer to discuss how you can contribute.
