Uniform Preparation

Dear Parents of the Viking Marching Band,
We have a lot of work to do to prepare our musicians for competition season.

Please scroll down to sign up to help with any of the following:

CLEANING UNIFORMS

Due to construction in the Samohi Music building over the summer, volunteers have not had access to the uniforms. Our first job will be to clean the uniforms. This can be done in the comfort of your own home.

GROUP FITTING FOR RETURNING MUSICIANS

There will be a "mass uniform fitting" of all RETURNING musicians on Monday, August 12, beginning at 11:00 AM. Mr McKeown has requested that we start the fitting early, in order to limit disruption of Band Camp that day. We will need lots of volunteers to help record information about which students do or do not fit into the uniforms that they wore last season.

STUDENT FITTINGS

Volunteers help students find the right size pants and jackets, which are worn over athletic wear like shorts and leggings. To do student fittings, the District requires that you have Level 2 volunteer clearance. Your clearance is valid for 4 years; please sign up for these slots only if you are sure that your clearance is still valid.

IRONING/HEMMING/ORGANIZING

Even after a student leaves his/her uniform fitting, there is a lot of labeling to be done to make sure that each student's jacket, pants, hat, and gauntlets get where they need to be. We also need volunteers to iron the hemlines of the pants and jacket sleeves, and to "tack" the hems in place. You do not need to be an accomplished tailor to sew a couple of stiches into the leg of a pair of pants :-)

PARKING

Parking can be tricky during Band Camp. In the summer, there is usually parking available adjacent to the tennis courts and in the Barnum Hall lot. This year, Olympic Gate* access to on-campus parking is frequently closed for construction. We are hopeful that the Olympic Gate will be open in the evenings, starting around 5:30 pm.
*Olympic Gate = campus entrance on east-bound Olympic Blvd between 4th Street and Lincoln Blvd

When the Olympic gate is not open, volunteers have found parking at the meters on Michigan Ave, and on 7th Street between Michigan Ave and Pico Blvd. There is a 2-hour parking limit on 7th Street, so please move your car within 2 hours! There are also 2 metered spots on Michigan Ave, just west of Lincoln Blvd. Passenger loading only on Michigan, between the metered spots and 7th Street.

Paid parking is also in the Civic Center parking lot and structure, 333 Civic Center Drive.

Thank you and GO VIKINGS!
