Re: 1st game rant.
I have it worked out with the coach. Since we are usually down on the 25yd line or further, we do not play on offense when the ball is on our side of the 50. Drums play on defense. Officials have never said anything to us. I have had some football parents get pissy when we play when our team has the ball on the other end of the field and the team blows the play. I actually said to one of the parents "Im sorry my 65 band members are playing so loud they messed up the football team 60 yards away. She never spoke to me again.
Our students did amazing. We had the superintendent say its the best she's seen the band for a first game. Only problem was a ref told us we could not play on defense. We have a rule we don't play on offense only on defense. It kind of bummed my students out taking them out of the game for the 2nd half. End small rant. I hope everyone had a great long weekend.
