6-Sep-18: MUSIC IN MOTION 2018

posted Sep 6, 2018, 5:02 AM by Mark Nowicki

Hello Ram Band Parents!  The cycle begins again – our new year of fundraising to support the CHS Marching Ram Band is off and running.  Laura recently sent an email detailing the Membership and Sponsorship Programs, as well as our new Board and Brush fundraiser.  Please get involved in your spare time over the next couple of weeks to become a BPA Sponsor or General Member, and to solicit our community for Sponsorships and Advertisements!

 

Music In Motion is just one month away!  October 6th, 2018.  Save the date!  It will be here before we know it!  Planning by veteran parents is underway.  This is a human capital-intensive event – we must have maximum parent participation to make the show a success.

All Hands On Deck:  Music In Motion is a manpower intensive event.  I like to think of it in two phases – manpower needed during the five-hour show, and manpower needed before and after the show to set it up and break it down.  Ideally, every parent would work a task during the 5-hour show, and then contribute as well to a task before and after the show.  Some of the before and after set-up and break-down will be parents setting up or breaking down their respective task areas from during the show, but we still need additional parents to come to accomplish other tasks.

 

Please find something on the task lists below that you can do during the show, and then before and after the show (the lists below show only areas that still need to be filled).  Many hands make light work.  Sign up early and sign up often!

 

Thank you to the wonderful early birds who have already signed up.  We’re doing well but have a long way to go.

We will send a updates to these charts in the weeks leading up to the show.  Sign up early to get your choice of job.  Find the on-line sign up right here, or click the red “VOLUNTEER” button on ramband.com to quickly get to the list of ALL the fundraiser sign-ups for the year.  If you need help signing up, please call or email.

 

We need to borrow some equipment:  The BPA does not own every accessory equipment item necessary to put on the show.  We could rent this equipment, but to save costs, we request that you consider loaning us the items we need if you have them.  Click here for the equipment sign up.  It would be greatly appreciated if you can loan more than one item.

 

Finally:  We will be holding informational meetings during the two weeks just prior to the event in one of the band rooms, just before student pick up.  Stay tuned for dates.  Come and get your questions answered.  If you haven’t signed up by then, we will be able to sign you up there on the spot, but please don’t wait for the meetings to sign up and don’t hesitate to contact me or Joe Campbell in advance with any of your questions.  Thank you!
