News – November 3, 2019

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

The Marching Band finished up the competition season on a high note at the NWAPA Championships on Saturday. They scored 68.5 on the field at Autzen Stadium – a high for the season and also a career high for the band. Congratulations Mac Band!

And I can’t say it enough – Thanks to all the Parents who helped out in Eugene and throughout the season. Not only do you work hard, you are all great people to hang out with in parking lots all over Oregon.

NOTE: We’re hoping to get all our accounting in order by the end of this month, so if you’ve purchased food or supplies for the band this fall, please bring your receipts to Saturday’s Parent Show or the next Band Parent Meeting. And Thanks!

More Photos Than You Probably Have Time to Look At

Steve has been taking hundreds if not thousands of photos of the band this fall and after thinning them down has posted the best of the best from the first three competitions at this link. He is also working on posting the photos from the championships and promises they will be ready by this Tuesday. Thanks, Steve!

You can find even more photos and videos of the band at the Mighty MAC Band Facebook page. This is the member’s only page, so if you need an invitation, just reply to this email.
