Chili Booth Post

As you guys know, Nick and myself "helped" Mrs. Miller by making the chili slips.  What does this mean?  You probably already know...we missed some things.  Mrs. M tweeted the sizes of ingredients, but to make sure to cover the whole omission that we made, we're posting here as well:

First, make sure to include 1 lb ground beef (even though we forgot to list that)

On the ingredients, depending on what you have been asked to bring, we need them in the following:

Onions- 3 lb. bag

Tomato Sauce- 6 lbs. 6 oz (4x29 oz cans)*

Tomato Juice- 64 oz

Diced Tomatoes- 6 lbs. 6 oz (4x28 oz cans)*

Rotel- 28 oz (3 cans)*

Chili Beans- 40 oz

Chili Powder- Large container

All other spices- Regular container

*If you're shopping at Kroger, the cans in parentheses are readily available in Kroger brand

SCHEDULE UPDATE EMAIL

Good morning all!

We now have an updated timeframe for the opening of the new state of the art wing (which includes all of our new suite).  The unfortunate and very realistic news is that it is going to be a couple of weeks.  Our current room is completely disassembled and packed up.  Here’s what this means for us: we will only be having Band Camp II this year.  We have done this before and will be more than fine to do it again.  To be clear on what this means:

Band Camp I (July 29-Aug 2) will NOT be happening.
we will instead have 2 brief meetings on Tuesday, July 30 that you must attend 1 of.  The first meeting will be at 12 pm, the second at 4 pm (these will have us handing out final music copies, getting the seasonal practice schedule out,  and getting personnel numbers for drill writing).  These meetings are at these times as you most likely would have been dropping off/picking up your student from the originally scheduled camp anyways. 

Band Camp II (Aug 5-9) will BE OCCURRING AS SCHEDULED.

We will, as usual, have practice dates before school begins and will post those as soon as facilities are approved.

While this is less than our perfect scenario, take comfort in our construction/safety crews making everything perfect for us in the weeks to come.  If this changes your availability for camp (meaning, if you were put in pit due to missing week I), the good news is that it is no longer a factor preventing you from marching your instrument!  If this applies to you, I will be contacting you to discuss your updated status within the group.

Please feel free to email me with any questions!

Band Camp 2019 Email Blast

This information was just emailed to any and all signed up for 2019 Eagle Regiment.  If you have not yet signed up, first...please do to ensure a spot in the drill, second: check out the contents of this message!  If you haven't heard, we are planning to allow Scott Alumni participate in our program if their college schedule does not allow them to be in marching band.  If you are such a person, please sign up as well.  More news on that in the coming days!

Good afternoon all!

You’re receiving this email as you have signed up to be a part of the 2019-2020 Eagle Regiment (known previously as Scott Marching Band)!  The music is written and story-boarding is complete….we are about to move onto prop construction and drill design!  If you don’t know, our show this year is titled “and the Beast” and tells the story of Beast right up until he meets Beauty.  It mixes music from Hans Zimmer’s Interstellar, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Adele, Game of Throne’s Winds of Winter, and Fisher/Keilhauer’s Happily Ever After.  You can listen to the raw Finale audio at this link (but beware, it lacks dynamics and articulations) click here.

This is the year of a new us: a new music suite, new uniforms, new membership, and a new name.  We’re looking to break our past molds this year and look forward to having you be a part of that!
