Weather updates

  1. We will not rehearse today (Thursday), since school is out
  2. We will still have our Friday evening rehearsal tomorrow night from 5-8 PM
  3. Unfortunately, due to all the lost rehearsal time this week, we will not be going to the Bradley contest on Saturday. I know many of us were looking forward to it, but missing an entire week of rehearsing outside just hasn’t left us enough time to get prepared. I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable weekend spending time with family or picking up a shift at work.

Looking forward to getting back out on the field Friday night and putting the rest of the show on. See you there!
