Hello Pepband!

Hope you all had a great time at Picnic Day this weekend! If you weren’t able to go this year, I really hope you can go up next year; it’s always a treat to be able to listen to and play with other great bands.
Here are the events for this week:

**We do NOT have rehearsal this week. Take the evening to relax and recover and catch up on homework (yeah, right…homework).**

Friday 04/18/14

  • Women’s Water Polo vs. San Diego State Call Time: 5:30pm @ Canyonview Pool. Closet Meet Time: 5:00pm
The Women’s Water Polo team’s season is almost over, so let’s cheer them on to victory against that other SD school! If you can, please meet at the closet to help transport equipment to the pool. If you can’t make the closet meet time, let your section leader or Thomas or me know to take your instrument to the pool. We will be playing at the normal pool this time so we’ll actually be able to see the game! Yay!
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the information below.

Hello Pepband!

Hope you all had fun this weekend at our crazy long gigs! I don’t know about you, but I am so sore from dancing around all day on Saturday…but I guess now I’m ready for Picnic Day!
Here are the events for this week:

Tuesday 04/08/14

  • Rehearsal 7:45pm @ RIMAC in the Green Room
Before we head off to Davis, we have one more rehearsal to prepare for the battle, so come on out and ‘march’ around RIMAC with us while we attempt to memorize the Davis Intro and answer the question we’ve all been wondering…What does the fox say?

Thursday 04/10/14

  • Super Secret Surprise 9:00pm @ SunGod Lawn
Come on out and meet us at SunGod Lawn in the night time! It won’t take long so everyone should go…it’s essential for Davis! You won’t want to miss it.

Friday 04/11/14-Sunday 04/13/14

  • Davis Weekend/Picnic Day 2014 Call Time: 10:00am @ RIMAC loading dock. Closet Meet Time: 9:30am
If you have signed up to come with us to Davis, meet us at the RIMAC loading dock at 9:30am on Friday 04/11. If you have a 9:00am class, take your luggage to class and run over to RIMAC after your class; we are shooting to leave as close to 10:00am as possible, so please be there by 10:00am. PLEASE DO NOT BE LATE; we might leave you behind even though we really don’t want to.

Hello Pepband!

I’m sure you’re all bummed that Spring Break is over, as am I, but welcome back! Hope you’re pumped for Spring Quarter, it should be a good’n.
Here are the events for this week:

Tuesday 04/01/14

  • Rehearsal 7:45pm @ RIMAC in the Green Room
No foolin’ around here! It’s Tuesday so that means we have rehearsal. Come on out and play with us; we’ve got a lot to practice since Picnic Day is right around the corner. Getting excited yet???
Thursday 04/03/14

  • TESC Outreach Welcome Dinner Call Time: 4:45pm @ PC West Ballroom. Closet Meet Time: 4:00pm
TESC is the Triton Engineering Student Council Outreach Committee and we are going to play at their Welcome Dinner for their annual Overnight Stay Program which is designed to give newly admitted students a chance to learn more about UCSD. We start playing around 5:15pm and play for 30 minutes. They’ve also offered us dinner after the performance, so come on out, get some free food, and welcome newly admitted UCSD engineers (recruit, recruit, recruit)! Just kidding…but not really? It should be a great gig.

Friday 04/04/14

  • Men’s Volleyball vs. UC Irvine Call Time: 6:30pm @ RIMAC arena. Closet Meet Time: 6:00pm.

Soooo I think this might be our last volleyball game of the season….I think. So come on out and cheer on your Men’s Volleyball Game like it definitely is our last volleyball game of the season (that we’re playing at), yay!

Saturday 04/05/14

  • Triton Day Call Time: 9:30am @ UCSD Bookstore entrance on library walk. Closet Meet Time: 9:00am

It’s Triton Day already! For those of you who are unfamiliar with Triton Day, it’s UCSD’s admit day! But most of you should have gone, right? I didn’t go….but it’s a great day for us to get exposure and to recruit potential peppers! Lunch will also be provided, so double bonus! Oh wait, and it’ll be a good chop work-out for Davis…. triple bonus!

If you can, please come to the closet meet time so we can move all of our equipment to library walk. Also bring lots of water and sunscreen since we’ll be playing for most of the day and I’m guessing it could be hot out. Or it could rain. I don’t know anymore.

 

  • Thrift Shopping for Davis
After Triton Day, if you still need a costume for Davis, we’re going to go on a thrift shop excursion! If you want more details for this event, you can find them on Facebook!

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the information below.

Hello Pepband!

Thank you to those who came out to the Volleyball game last Thursday; you’re presence helped them take home a victory! Yay! I knew they would win….

Anyways, we will not be having rehearsal this week because it is Finals Week, but here is a handy dandy packing list for Picnic Day!

Also, just a reminder, Picnic Day is April 11th -13th and we will be leaving that Friday around 10:00am. If you know you will miss a test that day or if you find out that you will have a test/quiz/assignment due that Friday, please talk to your professor(s) about the issue and contact Kirk Wang as soon as possible because he can proctor your quiz/test in Davis if the professor allows it. Or try to turn it in/take the test early if you can. You know, whatever works.

Hello Pepband!
 
Can you believe it’s already week nine??? I definitely can’t. Feels more like week 5237y8943098340. I don’t know what’s happening anymore.

Here are the events for this week:
 
Tuesday 03/04/14
 
  • Rehearsal 7:45pm @ RIMAC in the Green Room
Practice yo’ dance moves!
  • Mardi Gras Parade Closet Meet/Rides at RIMAC loading dock: 6:00pm Call Time: 7:15pm @ the staging area.


If you’re 21+ we’ll be marching in the Mardi Gras Parade downtown instead of going to rehearsal! Sorry if you’re under 21…you’ll be able to participate soon! We need to be downtown and check in at the check in station located at 6th and F-street, across from the Ramada Inn. (If you didn’t sign the waiver, it’s ok, we probably signed it for you)

If you’re driving, the easiest way to get to the check-in station is to go West on F St and North on 6th street (says the mardi gras paperwork). We’ll drive down there and park and take our instruments to the check-in area.

Also, bring your ID just in case, and wear your Hawaiian! And anything else that is festive.

We made so much progress today! But we still have a few things to finish, so come on out and lend us a hand! The sooner we get this finished, the sooner we (I) won’t have to keep worrying about it :)
