GOLD Family,
Our second full corps weekend is almost here. We’re at Azusa High School both Saturday and Sunday this week. A big shout out and thank you to brass caption head Bill Fritz for arranging for us to be at this great facility.

This weekend we want to fill those last few open spots in the corps. We have openings in the horn-line and guard to fill. So make sure you’re reaching out to all your friends who are interested in marching and GET THEM TO REHEARSAL!

May tuition payments are coming due. If you’re not sure if you’re up to date on your tuition please check with Jackie Garcia and her team during check in.


U-2 CONCERT

The U-2 Concerts at the Rose Bowl are May 20 & 21. We need as many parents and friends as we can get to work these two concerts. These could be HUGE FUNDRAISING EVENTS for the corps. If your friends or parents can work one or both days, please have them contact Ray Gardner ASAP to sign up.


SNAP-RAISE FUNDRAISER

We will be doing a SNAP-RAISE fundraiser again this year. This email and text fundraiser has been a great way for students to raise part or even all of their fees in the past. We will be starting this fundraiser a bit earlier this year to give everyone a chance to get out there and raise money.

More information on this fundraiser coming this weekend.


MEMBER & PARENT/SUPPORTER JACKETS

If you would like to order your GOLD jackets, please contact Darcy Johnson


TRANSPORTATION

If you don’t have a car ride to rehearsal, don’t fret – Azusa High School is not far from a Gold Metro Line station. It’s a short Uber ride to the school from there.

Travel by metro train from all regions of SoCal into Union Station in DTLA. Once at Union Station hop on the Gold Line to Azusa.


LET’S GROW TOGETHER

The entire staff is excited work with the performers of GOLD 2017 this weekend.
Please come prepared to make this a fun and productive weekend.

All the best
