As we come to the final note of a wonderful 2014-2015 season and close our eyes to the “Visions of Red”, we imagine a time to sit back and relax as we eagerly await the magic of the coming season, right??? WRONG!!!

With the announcement of the 2015-2016 show “Defying Gravity”, we are already off and running with the planning of an ambitious line-up of props that will make for an incredible halftime show. This coming year’s props are going to be something special and will require a full team of volunteers to design, create, and manage, from day one until the end of the season.

Initially we will need volunteers skilled/interested in construction, fabrication, welding, etc to be available over the summer months to meet, plan, design and construct the props. Then as band camp approaches we will need additional volunteers willing to learn the logistics associated with the props; transporting, loading, assembling, etc., who are also willing to commit to being at several practices, all games and all competitions throughout the marching season (July-December). This prop logistics team will be an integral part to the overall success of the show and requires unprecedented coordination and teamwork, so your faithfulness each week will be just as important as the students. In short, you will be considered an honorary, behind-the-scenes Trojan Band Member.

What are the qualifications to volunteer? The most important one is the desire to create a center piece for the most memorable Trojan Band halftime show ever. Beyond that you must be able to work with others and enjoy the fellowship of great people each week. We will need skill-sets from A-Z and all those in between who can volunteer for whatever needs to be done. In the end… If you are willing to help, we can use you! And remember, Band Booster Membership is now open to all alumni and parents/guardians of alumni as well, so if you’re eager to rejoin this awesome organization, we’d love to have you.

So, if you are interested in helping us bring these amazing props to life, please sign-up below or here so we can schedule a meeting early this summer. Once we show you what the imagination team has come up with to build, you will understand why we want to start so early 🙂  After all, it takes a lot of work to make people defy gravity!
