Deep Freeze, Heat Wave, Normal - Take your pick!

We saw just about every kind of winter - and early spring - weather in February, so let's see what March will throw at us!   

It's our clinic with Brent Ghiglione this week, so hopefully everyone is all rested and practiced and ready to work Wednesday night.  
We will not be going to Moose Jaw March 12th - it just didn't work out this year for them. 

A special note from the Pep Band: they are having auditions this Sunday, March 5th - they are celebrating 25 years of Rider Pride this year!  See poster attached below. 
 
Upcoming: 
Senior band will be playing at the Optimist Festival on Wednesday March 22. There will be no Intermediate band that evening. So far, it appears that our performance time will be 5:50pm, so we would like to be there by 5pm - subject to change, of course, as their schedule is updated. When the update is available, it will be discussed at rehearsal.   

Our Steak Night fundraiser is all set to start Sunday, March 26th - see below for the poster. It will be at Mr. Mike's in Harbour Landing. Note that we are encouraged to attend on Sunday night so we can mingle with our bandmates, even though it continues Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Also, there will be a 50-50 draw on the Sunday night. 
 
There are no rehearsals during school breaks, so band is cancelled April 19th. While Thom is unavailable April 12th as well, the search is on for an alternate space for that date.   

Do put the spring concert date on your calendars - 7 pm, Sunday April 30th, at Lakeview United Church. 


Reminders: 
Second half fees are now due. 
Note that our fees are the major source of funds to keep the organization going. Proceeds from the Hot Dog sale during the summer and the 50/50 draws are can only be used for extras like new music if all the other bills are paid first.
