Kamehameha T of B Info

Hey gang! well our big day has arrived! Woooo Hoooo! Your rehearsals have been going really well and I truly feel that you are ready for this challenge!

Please don’t be late today. Guard begins at 12:00pm and full band should be ready no later than 12:50pm. Please leave your homes earlier so that you don’t arrive late. We are on a very tight schedule!

Please be sure to have your water jugs for practice. Also bring your jackets/ponchos in case of rain.

Pack extra clothes just in case we run into rain. Do not wear your uniforms to practice. Pack them neatly in a handbag. You will be able to change after our run through. Extra Clothes includes extra shirt, socks, undergarments, etc. A towel is also good idea.

ALSO…please be sure to eat before coming to practice today!!! There will be no lunch break. AGAIN…EAT BEFORE YOU COME TO PRACTICE!!!

Drink lots of water and get lots of rest!!!
