You know it!

Dear non-racist brother,


Have you been playing much this summer?
Just wondering.

Dear Sarah, PART 2.

Just for those of you that don't have a facebook account - Sarah, Nathan - I thought I'd let you guys know about the Rolling Hills Water park trip.
This is straight off of the even on facebook, so, not my words.
"Everybody from marching band is invited. And we mean EVERYBODY. Invite anybody on your friends list that may not have been invited.

We will be meeting at Rolling Hills at 10:45, and depending on how nice the weather is to us, we might be there until 7. (If you need to leave, then that is absolutely okay!)

There will be a group of us meeting at Taco Bell on Michigan Ave. after the park. If you want to stop by, that would be really nice.

For anybody wondering about admittance costs:
Parking: $5
Admittance into park: $6 ($4 after 5pm, but I doubt that
anybody will be coming in at that time)"

They want to do that this Tuesday, which is... the... um. crap.
I think it's the tenth?
This coming Tuesday.
Let me know if you guys want to come, and I'll let Charlotte/Mike know (They're running it).

Also, about doing the skit at the banquet? I'd rather not, personally. My mother wouldn't really approve and I'd feel intensely awkward in front of all the parents.
As for a pre-evening rehearsal practice, explain why we need one in 50 words or less on a written consent form signed by the mayor.
but not really.
I don't really get why we need one...

Dear Sarah,

You don't have a facebook.
That's NUTS.
So i found some things I thought you (and other people if they still come to the blog) would find interesting.
First off:
Both Jim and Shelby want to do the skit next year, I'm assuming Nathan does too because he's totally awesome. So next year, AVBCM RETURNS.
Two: Our completely unrelated third party outsider skit. For those that don't know and read this, Sarah and i (and whoever else wants to) will be performing Days Of Summer from a Very Potter Sequel at Band Camp next year. (See This.) Including the little monologue at the end.
Sarah, I've begun learning the dance, and editing the script to make it Band Camp-y. (I'm just getting it done now. We don't need to rehearse or anything for a long time.)
I found an instrumental version with a download here but it's a little out of tune and the tempo is faster than it should be. I'm going to keep looking for, like, sheets, or something and maybe Steven Paelicke or Saralyn's mom could play it or something.
Thirdly and lastly, It's gonna be a long three weeks until we have Marching Band again. I miss you guys already. /sadface.
