October 1st 2019 Crusader Band Update:

Dear Crusader Band Parents,

Homecoming is over. The Show #2 is on the field. We are quickly moving to band senior night, Varsity Show, the Band Quarter Auction, the last game, and into Christmas Parade season! The Crusader Band marches on and we’re having a great season! The band looks good, the flags and Royalettes are dancing great. And so far, praise God, the weather has been super!

Update on the Wheeling Nailer’s: we will not be playing. There was not a date we could use without interference with school activities, or performances already on the calendar.

Update on the Basketball tournament at the WesBanco Area: We will be playing. As of right now, I do not know if we are playing two games on January 3rd, or 2 games on January 4th. We have to wait on the tournament schedule to know which two back-to-back games we are assigned. Hopefully we will hear in early November.

There will be a Band Booster Meeting in the band room at 7 pm on Tuesday, October 8th. At a minimum, we will be discussing the following topics:
• Band Senior Night
• Varsity Show
• Fundraising
• Quarter Auction
