Bluffton “On the Banks of the Wabash”
For our newest marcher’s, this is the weekend that the upper classmen have been preparing you for, the first time you take the field in full uniform in front of a crowd and under the lights. It will be a night you will never forget. For many it ignites a fire that will continue throughout your high school career and provide you with great memories that you will carry with you for a lifetime.
Please remember to bring your summer T-shirt, appropriate undergarments, and black socks. For guard, make up, hosiery, your summer shirt and wind suits. NO JEWELRY or NAIL POLISH please. Your hair will need pulled back and up in your shako. Bring hair ties and bobby pins if you need them. You may also want snacks or money for concessions. Plan to pack a meal for the dinner break. Students will not be allowed to leave the school property after practice before we leave for Bluffton. Parents may bring food at the break if they choose. This will be the first of many exciting weekends this season. Let’s go show everyone what the 2014 Big Orange Pride has to offer this season.
