Volunteer timing and descriptions to be added once received.  

 4-5 parents are needed to help check uniforms in and out.
Arrive at the band closet in the high school at 5:45 p.m. for uniform checkout. Return to band closet after halftime show to help check uniforms back in.

 4 parents are needed to help move the 3 podiums to their appropriate locations on the field.

 2 parents are needed to help move extra equipment onto the sidelines.

Color Guard Alternates will help place the flags.  2-6 parent volunteers will help strip and prep once the flags have been dropped in place.  All parent volunteers will then help shag all the flags once the show is over so that the Alternates can march off the field with the rest of the group.  At every spot we place a flag, another will be in its place to pick up after the show.  Kathy Sharp.  has printed miniature versions of the flag diagram and put them on lanyards so that every volunteer has one.  Tonya and Kathy will also coach on how to place and strip the day of the game or competition.

Please show your support of the marching program by lending a hand.
