2021-22 Marching Band and Guard *NEW*
Field Shows (Tournaments) are the performances that our students are working really hard for! We have entered 4 Field Tournaments this season.
We need a LOT of Pit Crew members. The Pit Crew is critical to the operation of our field shows. No experience is necessary and it is easy to learn how to move the equipment. Most equipment is on wheels so there is little to no heavy lifting. There are three shifts for each field show:
LOADERS: Arrive at Mira Costa just before the morning rehearsal ends and help load the front-line equipment, uniform carts, color guard flags and equipment, sousaphones, and audio equipment into the trucks. This task takes about an hour and a half.
FIELD SHOW SUPPORT: Unload the equipment at the field show, follow the front-line ensemble to their practice area, and push equipment onto and off of the field. We need lots of people to get all of the equipment on and off the field for a successful show. We encourage carpooling to the field shows so that you can use the carpool lane and save time.
UNLOADERS: Meet the trucks at Mira Costa after the field show to unload equipment and move it all back to the band hall. Takes about an hour -- a great volunteer activity if you can't attend field shows. Truck drivers will text when they are about half an hour from Costa.
WE NEED TRUCK DRIVERS!!! The equipment and uniforms necessary for each field show require 2 26-foot rental trucks. If you're able and willing to drive a truck for one or more field performances, please contact Tony Salvagio ([email protected], 310-944-8055 cell) and make a note when you sign up.
TIMES ARE ESTIMATED. Times will be adjusted when our performance times are announced but please sign up for slots now on days you are available and mark your calendar. An email will be sent out right when times are released and adjustments can be made if necessary. Thanks for understanding!
Please contact Tony Salvaggio if you have any questions ([email protected], 310-944-8055 cell).
Limited quantities of the volunteer t-shirts are still available for purchase for $20.00 each. Please contact Carolyn Mukai at [email protected] if you would like to purchase a t-shirt and state the size you are requesting.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR VOLUNTEERING YOUR TIME!!!
