Mr. S MUST KNOW EXACTLY WHO is going with Saturday, in class, ON THURSDAY. This means what BAND STUDENTS, FRIENDS, FAMILY MEMBERS, etc. will be riding the bus down with us and back. No "maybes" or "I don't knows", you must have EXACT names/numbers ON THURSDAY.
Now, on to Saturday.
9:20am - Check in at Cuba MHS
9:30am - Bus leaves for Macomb/WIU!
c. 10:00am - arrive at corner of Western Ave & Adams St, drop off to watch parade
10:30am - Parade starts, watch it from Alumni House/Olsen Hall area
After parade, get lunch, hang out. Mr. S will have to warm up with the WIU Alumni Band at 1:45, so people will be on their own/under chaperone supervision at that point for a while. This would be a good time to pick up tickets. PLEASE PURCHASE GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS AND SIT ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE STADIUM, NEAR/BEHIND/AROUND THE BAND!
A little after 2:00pm is the "Pregame at the Ashtray" performance of the WIU Marching Leathernecks behind the University Union. Watch this performance, then head on in to Hanson Field for the official pregame, kickoff, first half, half time show, second half, post-game show, and Never Walk circle of the MLs.
After this is all done, meet up on the track just outside the NORTH end zone of the football field. The bus will be parked up in "Q Lot", North of the stadium. We'll head back up there together, then head on home.
Expected time to arrive home is around 7:15pm. May be later or earlier, depending on how the game goes and how quickly we get out of there.
*****A NOTE ON TICKET PRICING/PAYMENT*****
Tickets are $15 for General Admission, unless we can confirm a group of 10+, in which case they will be $10 each. Mr. Schweizer will help offset the ticket cost to all MS and HS band students, and will give each student $5 - 7, paying for HALF their ticket.
Please contact Mr. Schweizer IMMEDIATELY if there are any questions/concerns about
