Information on Friendship Cup Marching Band Competition 9/27/2014 (Sat.)

Our first competition of the 2014 season is  Saturday 9/27!  This is the first time that the band will be performing the complete show with all props so we will need many volunteers to make it successful.  Please consider helping out on this day and support your students!

We still haven't been assigned a time yet, but we are estimating that it may be around 1:30-2:30 pm. A Sign Up Genius will be sent out for volunteers as soon as we have finalized times.
We will load the truck around 10:30 am (may change based on assigned performance time). The truck and buses will travel to Elizabeth and arrive there around 12:00-12:30 (or 1 1/2 hours prior to assigned performance time). Volunteers will need to be at Elizabeth High School (located at at 34500 on CO Road 13 in Elizabeth) by approximately noon to help upload the truck, receive their assigned jobs for the performance, and go over any competition rules that may affect volunteers.  Parking for spectators is available at and around the school. Upon arriving, volunteers will need to walk across the street (west of the high school) to where the bands are parked and warming up (Look for the LHS Lion Pride Marching Band semi-truck.).  Please make sure to wear your black Lion Pride Marching band shirt, dark pants/shorts, and comfortable shoes (it is a considerable walk into the stadium from the warm-up area).  If you don't have a LHS shirt, just wear something black.  Also, for competitions, we are requesting that there are no volunteers on the field under the age of 12 since we need to follow very strict competition rules.

After our performance at Elizabeth H.S. Stadium, we will have a meal at the school for all students and volunteers and then stay to see the placements of the Finalist Bands.  If we make finals, the band will perform again that evening.  

If you have any volunteer questions about this competition, please contact Marsha Prokuski  -
