Hey guys,

Just as a reminder, we do not have rehearsal this week! (or any other playing events for that matter)
Instead we have a White Elephant gift exchange tomorrow when we would normally have rehearsal. If you come, make sure you bring a gift of $10 or less. There is a Facebook post with more information about what a white elephant gift is, but if you still don’t understand, here’s a youtube video that explains the process:
Good luck with finals, happy holidays, and I hope to see you this week!

Hey guys!

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend with friends and family, but now it’s time to finish off the Fall Quarter strong!
Tuesday, December 2nd
  • Rehearsal. So this week we’re gonna try something a little different. We will be bringing in all the songs that have recently been arranged and we will be playing through all of them and deciding whether or not we want them in the book! (it’s a group vote) This is why you bring water. (or milk?) So rehearsal will be starting right at 7:45 pm. Make sure you’re there!
Friday, December 5th
  • Holiday Dinner. As is tradition, we will be hosting our annual Holiday Dinner party on Friday night. Amy sent out an email with all the details (So I hope you got it!). Make sure you guys are all dressed up and ready to take loads of pictures. :D Also make sure that you bring something to share.
Saturday, December 6th 
  • Water polo. This year our school was chosen to host the NCAA Championship and because of how good our men’s team is, we are also competing in it! So we have been asked by athletics to bring the spirit! Our first game is against UCLA on Saturday at 1:00 pm. If you need stuff from the closet, please be there at 12:00 pm, other wise meet at the pool at 12:30 pm. If you guys aren’t there by call time then we can’t guarantee you an entrance. This is mostly because it is going to be an extremely crowded game. We are also limited to how many people can get in, so please fill out the RSVP form so that we can make sure to save you a seat!

Sunday, December 7th

  • Water polo. Depending on how we do against UCLA on Saturday, we will be playing at either 1:00 pm or 3:10 pm on Sunday. After the game on Saturday I will make an announcement about when we will be playing. I will also send out an additional email and post it on Facebook so everyone knows. If you can make either of those times, please fill out the RSVP form (above).
And that’s it for this week! I know we’re nearing the end of the quarter and it’s do or die time, but please try to make it as many events as possible! (I promise good things happen if you go to a lot of events) If you guys have any questions/concerns please let me or an officer know. ALSO, if you cannot make closet call time, but you need your instrument, please let your section leaders know!

Good Evening Pepband,

Why yes, I am quite aware that this is hella late. You can verify with people who saw me Saturday night. I died. BUT I CAME BACK FOR YOU. Well anywho, we only have one thing this week.

Tuesday, November 25th
  • Rehearsal at 7:45 pm. We’ll be having one last rehearsal this week before you all go home to your families and enjoy the mountains of food they’re probably going to serve. (Let’s be honest, we just want someone to look after us again…) Make sure you come out and play with us! We need as much practice as we can get because our Men’s Water Polo team made it to the NCAA Championship! woooo. More information to come next weekend.
Hope to see all your lovely faces this week, but if I don’t I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving! *cough* and Black Friday *cough*
Nancy “I have a midterm in less than 30 minutes” Acosta

Hey guys,

I can’t believe it’s week 7 already! :o Time flies by really quickly. Anywho, we have things to do this week! :)

Tuesday, November 18th

  • Rehearsal. Per the usual we’ll be having rehearsal in the Green Room at 7:45 pm.

Friday, November 21st

  • HOCKEY!! Okay, I’m really excited for hockey because that means hot chocolate, warm sweaters, and yelling fantastic obscenities. This is a pretty late event, so make sure to catch your Z’s the night before. If you need stuff at the closet, meet time is 8:15 pm. Rides will be leaving from the loading dock at 8:30 pm. WOOO I hope you’re ready! The game will be held at KROC Center, and it should finish at around 11:00 pm.

Saturday, November 22nd

  • Social Event. We will be having another social event this Saturday, so keep a lookout for another email.

Hope to see you guys at this week’s events. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me or another officer know.

Nancy Acosta

Hey guys, 

Thank you to all of you who came to last week’s events. I know it gets tough to come out with all these dang midterms! So to make up for it, we have a REALLY easy week this time around.
Tuesday, November 11th
  • Rehearsal. I know many of you will probably be taking the day off, but if you’re still itching to get some practice time in, we will be having an unofficial rehearsal. It’ll start promptly at 7:45 pm and be over by 9:00 pm :D
Friday, November 14th
  • Founder’s Day Celebration. We were asked to open and close the Founder’s Day Celebration, but it’s is a bit weird! We will be playing two sets that are about 15 minutes long. The first one starts at 12:00 pm, and the second one starts at 1:30 pm. Because this is a large school event, I encourage all of you to come out :D There is always free food, so if you have the time, you can stick around and enjoy the other performances that happen between our sets. Call times before the sets are 11:45 am and 1:15 pm in Town Square (Triton Statue area/where the farmers’ market usually is). If you need something from the closet, meet time is 11:00 am.
  • Bonfire! Later on Friday night we’ll be having out first bonfire of the year! (yaaay) We will be getting a pit at La Jolla Shores. If you need a ride (or can give rides), please meet at Sun God Lawn at 5:45 pm.
Saturday, November 15th
  • Movie Night! In case you haven’t had enough of us yet (I mean, we’re pretty awesome), we will be having a movie night! We are still working on a reservation, but it’s going to be on campus. Come hang out for a bit, take a break, and come watch a movie or two with us :D This will be a potluck event, so please bring something to share! Also, I would recommend bringing blanket and/or pillows to get comfy. Movie start time will be 6:00 pm.
And that’s it for this week’s events. It’s a fun and relaxed week, so come out and play! Please make sure you guys make an attempt to go to the Founder’s Day Celebration (get some free stuff!). I hope to see you all this week! :)
