1. All of the marching uniforms are labelled with sizes, but are not with any kind of consecutive numbering system. More or less a grab-and-go system, which is frustrating. This goes for the uniform jacket and both sets of marching pants. Does anyone have any recommendation on marking these that will also withstand dry cleaning or washing?
2. How do you get the mold out of white gauntlets? We will be only checking them out for halftime from here on out, as they get very dirty very fast.
3. Any recommendations on quality garment bags and shako boxes? The current bags and boxes are already falling apart after only a couple years use.
I am working to instill a feeling of pride and care in an ensemble that has been through many leadership changes. The program, and I, are a work in progress. I would really like to get ahead of all these issues in the next few weeks. Thanks for any and all advice in advance.
