Mason Invitational: Volunteer Sign-ups Now in Charms!

The Mason Band Invitational is Saturday, October 13th, and we need everyone to volunteer in order to fill all 236 volunteer spaces!

 

Our Invitational reputation precedes us, as bands love coming to our facility because we run a very organized event, and visitors feel welcomed and well taken care of...we need all hands on deck in order to make this happen!  We are looking forward to another successful Invitational!

 

There is major setup/prep before any of the bands arrive on Saturday, so you will see shifts starting early in some areas.  Shifts continue throughout the day, ending with cleanup at the end of the evening, which starts right after the second awards ceremony. There are also Charms sign-ups for food donations.

 

Please sign up for your shift in Charms: https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/login.asp

 

While we appreciate and are thankful to everyone who sign up to bring hospitality food items to the Invitational, supplying food does not satisfy the mandatory volunteering requirement for the day.

 

Mason Invitational Shirt: Last day to order is Tuesday

Our Mason Band Invitational shirt is now available for pre-order. Only a limited number will be available the day of the invitational, so order yours now! Tuesday is the last day to order!

Booster Meeting: Thursday

Please join us at our next Booster Meeting this Thursday, October 4, in the Band Room. We are scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm (we will begin after the Homecoming Parade).
