Updates and volunteer opportunities

Band Families,

First we would like to thank all of the volunteers who came out Saturday.  We were able to remove the old screens, clean up the black trailer, storage container, and back band room.  Plus we fed the whole band dinner.  It was a really productive day and greatly appreciated.

This week we are heading to our first competition.  The competition will be held at the new Wando stadium in Mt. Pleasant.  Mr. Pouncey will be sending out a schedule for Saturday.  There will be a practice for students Saturday morning.  Parents who sign up for PITT or Props for competition will also need to attend a practice Saturday morning at 10:00.

We do have a JV/B game this Thursday night also.  Signup link for concessions: JV/B Game Concessions

There are a few things that we need volunteers for this week.

Screen Props:

Those of you who came out on Saturday know that our new show screens have not arrived from North Carolina yet.  They are suppose to be here this week.  We will need to get them attached to the screens as soon as they arrive.  At this time we are hoping Thursday.   If you can help,  please click on the signup genius links below.

Screen Prop Construction

Competition Props and PITT Volunteers:

Competition is located at the new Wando HS stadium located behind Wando HS

We are looking for 30 volunteers - this will include equipment haulers, prop handlers, and PITT equipment help.  NOTE:  you must be signed up through SignUp Genius in order to receive discount admission.  You will also be required to attend a training session on Saturday morning at 10:00.  Only signup if you can make this training as it is very important for all volunteers to know when/where equipment will go on and off the field.  Please use the below link to signup.

There is a charge for attending the competition.  It is usually $10 or under.  Join the Remind group by texting @arhsba to 81010 - we use this for mass communication at the competitions.  We will let you know which area most ARHS fans will be sitting and other items if needed.  Please remember to not post video of any show on social media.

Please remember Alternate Transportation forms must be filled out before competition day and submitted to Mr. Pouncey.

Concession Sign-Ups:

Due to the storm we have had some changes in the football schedules.  Please look for volunteer sign up changes for future games.

Here is the updated schedule:  October 5 Varsity will play James Island at home.  November 1 JV/B games against West Ashley at home.

Show Shirts:

Show shirts have been ordered.  Screen East is trying their best to get them finished by Friday so we have them at competition.  The week lost to due to the hurricane delayed them.  We have been asked if we will be placing another show shirt order.  We have to have a minimum order of 12.  At this time we have 6 on the list, if you would like to order please let us know.
