The call-time for drumline & front ensemble is 12 pm tomorrow in the high school band room. Winds (woodwinds and brass) & color-guard, your call-time is 1 pm. The Marching Tigers depart for Charleston, IL at 2 pm. We will not return until Friday, August 9th around 5:30 pm.
Dinner is not provided tomorrow night in Charleston. Students, please pack money or a sack dinner. While not required, it is recommended that students bring and additional $20-40 for spending money for frozen yogurt, or snacks at the bowling alley. With the exception of tomorrow night, all meals are provided at the Andrews/Thomas dining facility on the campus of Eastern Illinois University.
Please take a moment to review the packing list & 2019 season information for the EIU camp. There are several required items on the list of which you may not consider packing for the week long camp. The staff does not have the ability to provide those items once we leave Olney. Unfortunately, that means a parent or guardian would have to make the trek to Charleston to drop off any missing items.
The Marching Tigers concludes the second week of our preseason camp with a rehearsal on Saturday, August 10th. That rehearsal starts at 8 am, and concludes at 12 pm at Richland County High School. We end the camp with the Parent-Preview performance for all friends and families of the Marching Tigers at 6 pm at Richland County High School. The performance is open to the public at no charge. You even have a chance to dunk staff in the dunk tank following the performance!
Keep in mind that much of RCHS is under construction, so please stay clear of those areas. Parents, I advise dropping off your students at the back of the high school at exit 21.
Finally, the performance schedule for the 2019 Marching Tigers has been posted under the calendar tab of the RCHS Bands website.
