It is now time to register for the Fall Season. Do that by clicking on the link below, on the website or from facebook.
We need folks to register by July 1, so that we can estimate the band size, so that our drill writer can produce an accurate show for us. Everyone will have an x on the diagram for our show.
When you register, you will notice that our suggested donation has changed from $25 to $50.
Everything the band does has become more expensive. We also have some new cost since Bringe music is closing. For our 40-year history, Bringe has stored a lot of our band gear.
We are now renting a storage facility. Many thanks to Bringe for it’s support of the Rounders under the ownership of Bill and Angie Findeison as well as the current owners and friends Lynn and Joan.
There will be more detail on sectionals, rehearsals and performances into the summer as we prepare for our first full rehearsal on Sept 20. Look for more information on the website, on band emails, and from your shepherd/lead.
We are all very excited about what is planned for the Fall.
Can’t wait to see everybody on Sept 20.
Have a great summer!
