News – October 28, 2018

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

The marching competitions are over and the band went out on a high note with their performance at Saturday’s Festival of Bands at Autzen Stadium getting them their highest score of the season. Congratulations to all the students, the instructors, and Mr. Barton for a successful season and creating such a wonderful show!

Once again, a great group of amazing parents showed up to keep the kids well-fed, organized and comfortable at the competition. Thank you for all your hard work!

Since it will probably never happen again, Collin is is going to put it in the record book that we made it through all the competitions without getting rained on. In fact, throughout the whole season, the band only got rained on three times, the wettest being rehearsal on Thursday (see photo) and the football game on Friday.



New Photos & Videos on Facebook
New postings of photos and videos of the band’s performance at the Championships are now on the Mac Band (Members Only) Page. You can learn how to get access right here on the Parents page of the Macband website. Thank to all the parents who are posting!

And once again, here’s the link to Steve Houk’s web page where he posts his multitude of photos of the band.


This week’s schedule:

Next week’s schedule:

Details are being worked out for the Parent Show on November 7th and there’s a possibility of the band marching in the Veteran’s Parade and doing some kind of a performance at Linfield on Saturday the 10th. I’ll send more information next week about these.

See you soon,
Brian Bailey
