Legacy of Champions a Huge Success & The Week Ahead

14568016_517205755153542_6277380035770896611_nIt was a beautiful fall day on the Carrollton City School Campus this past Saturday as the Carrollton Trojan Marching Band, and the Carrollton Trojan Band Boosters hosted the second Edition of The Legacy of Champions Marching Band Competition. And while winds gusting in excess of 20mph provided a challenge for events coordinators, it did not hinder the competitiveness of the excellent bands in attendance.

The event, which took place on the gorgeous 130-acre campus of the Carrollton City School system, within historic Grisham Stadium, featured performances by fifteen local and regional bands. The large crowd of supporters and marching band enthusiasts that gathered were treated to amazing performances, a variety of vendors, concessions, and first-class facilities that helped to ensure an enjoyable day for everyone. The evening concluded with a greatly anticipated awards ceremony, highlighted by the presentation of our massive, one-of-a-kind, traveling Grand Championship Trophy, The Legacy Sword Trophy. At the end of the evening, the Legacy Sword Trophy was awarded to the Woodland Wildcat Marching Band of Woodland High School, located in Cartersville, Georgia. In addition to being named the Grand Champions, Woodland also received the prestigious Don Hall Music Award. Congratulations to all of the students, staff, boosters, and supporters of the Woodland High School Band for their remarkable success at the Legacy of Champions Marching Band Competition.

We would also like to say a big thank you to all of the Carrollton community for your overwhelming encouragement and support. In addition, thank you for the herculean efforts of our event staff and volunteers.

Band Jacket Personalization

Many have asked about having student’s names added to their new band jackets. If you wish to do this, you can to take them to Ozier Apparel and they will ad their name for $5. By taking them to Ozier, who produced the jackets originally, we can ensure that our new band jackets, which are part of official uniform are homogeneous. * Please note, Ozier Apparel has moved off of Maple Street.

Once a student reaches 10 items sold,  they will get another entry into the drawing for every five additional items they sell… so the more you sell, the more chance you have to win a gift card!
