2019 LHS Marching Band
The Pit & Prop Crew is a dedicated parent team that hauls, assembles, and moves all oversized musical instruments and field props from LHS to off-campus performing sites. They also assist with the assembly and movement of equipment from the band room (or shed) to the stadium for LHS home games.
Equipment is hauled in a 22 foot Penske rental truck for away performances. The crew assists students and staff (as requested) in getting equipment on and off the field in a timely manner. This is VERY IMPORTANT as the band cannot exceed the maximum number of minutes allotted per group without receiving a severe penalty. Additionally, students need to PERFORM, and they cannot do so to the best of their ability when winded from exertion or full of anxiety about moving equipment to the field immediately before an adjudicated performance.
Last but not least, we usually contribute to a small “tailgate” with food and drinks when traveling. This allows us the opportunity to rest and enjoy a meal while the students rehearse.
It's a whirlwind of fun! Please consider helping out!
