Thanks for coming out to the double, double header this past weekend. We had a really nice turn-out for some pretty crazy games; I’m sure the basketball teams really appreciated your spirit!
Here are the events for this week:
- Rehearsal Call Time: 7:45pm @ RIMAC in the Green Room
First rehearsal of the quarter, woo! Aren’t you all excited to hear my joke? ‘Cause I sure am!
- NCAA Awards Ceremony Closet Meet Time/Rides: 2:45pm @ RIMAC loading dock. Call Time: 4:00pm @ the Hilton San Diego Bayfront- 1 Park Blvd, San Diego,CA 92101
We will be playing to start off an awards ceremony for NCAA athletes! This is a great opportunity for us to represent UCSD and to get publicity for the band.
We will meet at RIMAC loading dock at 2:45pm to load up cars with equipment. Cars should leave no later than 3:15pm in order to get to the location downtown. There will be six parking spots provided for us at the hotel (more information on that later).
We have a rehearsal at the venue at 4:15pm to run through the event. They will then feed us dinner around 5:00pm. If you come late, we cannot guarantee you dinner. We will then perform at 6:00pm and should be done well before 7:00pm.
**Please let your section leader know if you can come to this event and if you can drive so we can get a head count for the event**
***Also, please wear your Pepband T-shirt with black slacks or a black skirt. We will NOT be wearing our Hawaiians.***
- Hockey vs. UC Davis Call Time: 10:30pm @ UTC Ice Sports Center. Rides @ SunGod: 10:00pm
After the NCAA event, we have a hockey game and this time it’s at the UTC ice rink! If you need a ride, meet at SunGod at the time stated above. The 201/202 bus route is also very convenient for people who live on or near campus; it will take you to UTC. If you need an instrument and will not be coming to the NCAA event, let an officer or a section leader know and we will grab your instrument earlier in the day.
- Men’s Volleyball vs. BYU Call Time: 6:30pm @ RIMAC arena. Closet Meet Time: 6:00pm
Apparently all of Utah is planning on coming out to support BYU at this volleyball game, so come on out and support your UCSD Men’s Volleyball team to fight off all of them Utah-ers!
- MLK Parade Call Time: 12:00pm @ SunGod lawn. Closet Meet Time: 11:30am
In case you couldn’t get enough of us, we will be playing at the MLK Parade on Sunday! If you haven’t played in a parade with us, I would highly recommend coming; I love parades!
We will be meeting at SunGod lawn at 12:00pm and there will be free food and t-shirts! Rides there and back will be provided, so all you have to do is show up with your instrument. Also, just wear your Pepband T-shirt; we will not be wearing our Hawaiians.
Hope you’re all pumped for this upcoming week! It should be exciting!
(Also, keep an ear out for a possible fun event between the NCAA awards ceremony and the Hockey game on Friday).
