Aliens Have Just Landed At Carrollton High School!

wowaliens“Citizens of the Trojan Nation: We shall not try to conceal the gravity of the situation that confronts our nation, nor the concern of your band boosters in supporting the band program and needs of its band students. However, I wish to impress upon you — parents, guardians, and supporters, all of you — the urgent need of your service and resourceful action. Fortunately, these formidable needs are still achievable, and we may place our faith in our supporters to meet them. In the meantime, we must continue the performance of our duties each and every one of us, so that we may confront this need as a nation united, courageous, and dedicated to the excellence of Trojan Band.” (adapted from “The War of the Worlds”; Orson Welles)

Now that we have you attention… or at least scratching your heads thinking, “What in the world are they talking about?”, we wanted to relay to you some very important needs associated with our fast-approaching Legacy of Champions Marching Band Competition that takes place October 8th, 2016. We need your help with ATVs, golf carts, trailers, food, and fulfilling volunteer duties the day of the event. Please see below for details about each need.

ATVs, Golf Carts, & Trailers

These motorized vehicles & trailers will be used for hauling the equipment for the various bands that will be performing at the competition. We can use either four wheelers, utvs, etc. These vehicles will need to have a trailer hitch for pulling a trailer. We are in need of 8 or more of these vehicles. The golf carts will not be used to pull trailers but rather used by staff in the performance of their duties. We are in need of 8 or more of these vehicles.

We also need trailers to place the equipment on. These will need to have a ramp that can be lowered. The size we can use would be 6′ wide by 12′ or less long, due to restrictions of gate sizes at the stadium. We are in need of 8 or more of these as well.

If you have any of these items and can lend them for the day, please send an email to ASAP. Also, if you are available to volunteer to drive one of these vehicles the day of the event, please sing-up here:  or contact the Logistics Coordinator, Jeff Jones, directly by emailing:

Food Needs

Our competition hosts one of the best hospitality rooms in the state! We do this by spoiling our guests rotten with comfortable surroundings, Southern hospitality, and great food! So to ensure we continue this great tradition, we need your help with the “great food” part. Please visit this sign-up:  and volunteer to prepare and bring: Brownies, cakes, candy, chips, cookies, soups, rolls, tea, lemonade green beans, mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese, etc. (The hospitality team will contact you with full details and times after signing up.)

This is a great way to help out if your find yourself not available to actually be on campus volunteering that day or to go that extra mile in supporting our band program.

Volunteer Opportunities

Did you know that volunteering at the Legacy of Champions is actually expected of all of our boosters/parents? This event is such a huge undertaking and is becoming one of our top fundraisers, with proceeds going to reduce the cost of future band trips for all students. This allows us to consider more extravagant trips and for more students to go. All band students are required to work the entire day and parents/band boosters are expected to work at least two volunteer shifts during the event, but highly encouraged to commit to working the whole day.

The success of our event takes the support and efforts of ALL of our parents/boosters. So please take a moment and visit our volunteer page: and review all of the various sign-ups available for the event. There is a large variety of volunteer positions available, from staffing gates and ticket booths, to being a parking attendant or bleacher guard. Or how about working concessions, working a fryer, or just serving as a general volunteer. There is something for everyone! The most important part is to just be involved, so please take time to sign-up today!

As always, if you have any questions, please make sure to contact the Band Boosters at:
