We are planning to rehearse tonight from 6:00 – 9:00 PM at Alexander. Please bring a bottle of water. Let me know ASAP if there is a reason you can not be there. If we have a lot of folks who can not attend, we may need to change plans. We are changing to 6:00 – 9:00 to allow people to get to the rehearsal. There are several that could not get transportation to school at 4:00. If you are still having problems and can not attend please let us know. We’ll do the best we can. Keep checking the web site for updates.
The Lithia game has been moved to Monday at 6:30 PM. We will leave from the school as close to 5:00 PM as possible. This of course will cut one of our practices next week. We will practice on Tuesday from 6 – 9 and on Thursday from 4 – 7 PM. Please add this to your calendar.
