Re: Monday evening rehearsals
In my last job I NEVER had rehearsals outside the band period. One might think I was lazy, but it took a great deal of planning and work on my part to make it work. Each day in the hot afternoons I would place the colored dots and/or paint arcs/forms on our paved practice field for as many sets as I could teach and clean in the next rehearsal. With limited time I limited the sets in each show. It probably limited our number of SMC trips, but to me, Sweepstakes was the primary goal. I retired with 25 consecutive ones in marching and 25 Sweepstakes. Never missed those outside rehearsals.Ever!
