Re: Not marching at. Half time
Many directors would like to know in advance if the visiting band is performing or not in order to determine if they need to make cuts in their show.For example if the host school is doing some special program at half-time,I would want to know to see if I need to waste the money to make the trip.If I am the home group I always go over and meet the visiting band to welcome them to my stadium and let them know the order of events.If I am the guest band and no one comes over by the end of the first quarter,I go to the home side and ask.
Maybe they havenít been able to practice all week because of the weather.
Maybe there was an equipment malfunction.
Maybe itís their band and their call, and you should just concern yourself with your own band.
Last. District game. Good weather. Visiting band sends announced announcer to press box. 2 minutes , 1 minute and theyíre still in the stands. 30 seconds left till half. We are warming up in end zone. They are still in stands . Their announcer gets text. Not marching. WT$&@. Ok for us with senior night. But reality curious as to why not march????
