As you know Homecoming is September 17th!
We will be doing things a little differently this year. I hope that this will encourage more people to participate in the Alumni Band and bring our older and younger generations together.
1. Please consider participating in the Alumni Band. Rehearsal will be at 7AM in the stadium. If you are planning to participate please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need an instrument (Sousaphone, Flags, Bass Drum, etc) include that in the email. Morning games make it tough for us to get a good number in the alumni band. Last year we were at 33. We'd like to try and get above 50 this year.
2. Ex-Bandsmen Brunch/ Tailgate: This is different and will happen right after rehearsal. We are moving outside to combine with the Kappa Kappa Psi Alumni Tailgate. The tailgate is located in the baseball field parking lot. You can park for free in the neighborhood at Alton and Berry street. We are combining activities as a means of getting our pre -1990 grads and post -1990 grads together. We are suggesting a donation of $5 for food (brisket). We will also have ex-bandsmen shirts and stickers for sale. The tailgate is family friendly with plenty of room for kids to play. There is a free shuttle to take you to the game. The tailgate location is about a 15 minute walk from the stadium (Most walk to the game).
3. Band of Fame: Congratulations to Todd Burrer! He will be inducted into the TCU Band of Fame this year. Thank you to those who nominated him both last year and this year.
4. Post game gathering: I would still like to follow Daryll Kaire's suggestion to assemble for dinner after the game. However, I'm having trouble finding a restaurant that can accommodate us on such a busy night. If you or someone you know has connections and might be able to help, please let me know.
