Fall 2019 Semester Events:


This fall semester (in December), the Marching Panther Regiment will be travelling to New Orleans, Louisiana, and will be on NATIONAL TV for the 2020 Sugar Bowl Parade, and will be performing for over 85,000 spectators, and on NATIONAL TV for the ALLSTATE SUGAR BOWL HALFTIME SHOW!  We have been fundraising for this event for over a year!  This is, indeed, a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!  If you are new to our program (transfer student, incoming freshman, etc) and have not been fundraising and paying on this trip since last October 2018, and are interested in joining us for this trip, please contact Mr. Huckabee (director) ASAP so that we can secure your tickets, hotel room, New Year's Eve Dance, food reservations, bus seats, etc.  Once tickets go on sale to the general public, Mr. Huckabee will NOT be able to secure your seats for this trip!  (Same thing for any chaperones that are interested.  Please remember:  ALL CHAPERONES FOR ALL TRIPS MUST BE ACTIVE MEMBERS OF OUR BAND BOOSTER CLUB, meaning they are regulars at the booster meetings and are familiar with the program.  Otherwise, your money will be refunded for the trip!)  Call or email Mr. Huckabee if you have any questions/concerns for this upcoming CHANCE OF A LIFETIME trip over Christmas break!
