UIL CONTEST – This Tuesday is our UIL marching contest. Students will be released early to prepare to leave for HEB ISD Pennington Field. We perform at 6:30pm. We would love to see lots of parents at the performance supporting all the hard work these students have put in. There is an admission charge for this contest. Adults $5, School Age Children & Senior Citizens (60+) $3. Ticket sales and entry into the stadium will begin at 3:00pm. The itinerary is attached to this email.


MOOYAH WEDNESDAY – This Wednesday we will have our first fundraiser night at Mooyah Burger. These are easy fundraisers. Just eat dinner there and tell them you are supporting the Lamar Band. We get a portion of the profits from 4:00pm-10:00pm. The location is 2141 N. Collins St., Arlington, TX 76011 Tell everyone you know to come support the Lamar Band at Mooyah Burger this Wednesday Oct 21st!


FOOTBALL @ AT&T STADIUM – The next football game, Oct. 24th, will be held at AT&T stadium. There are very strict rules at AT&T stadium for the bands to follow. Students will ride the bus to and from the stadium to prevent any issues getting in and out. We will have very limited sideline passes for parents to help move equipment during halftime. The attached pdf has the itinerary for Saturday as well as the AT&T Stadium fan guide.
