2020 MZB Tentative Schedule

MZB Underclassmen,

Attached is the tentative "first draft" schedule for the 2020 MZB season for your reference and planning.  Some things are definitely subject to change, and we'll look to add some summer session dates in June/July as we get closer, but this at least gives you an idea of when and where things will likely be occurring.  
Please note that band camp will be starting AUGUST 10 -- so attendance from there on out is required.  If going away on family vacations, please consider scheduling them in June, July, or the first week of August.

I am not 100% sure of the parade dates at this time, so those (and some of the surrounding rehearsals) may change.  We will also take a vote of returning membership with regards to attending a competition on October 10 (which is also the Homecoming Dance), as this would be 2 consecutive weeks without a competition mid-season due to the Saturday football game the following week.  I'm good with either way -- so I'll leave it up to you all to decide as a poll question when we do officer voting in the spring.   

Thank you!
-Mr. Tanzos

Hi Everyone,
The Gift Card Bingo is just a little over 3 weeks away and we need your help!  Right now we only have about 40 tickets sold :(  We need to sell as many tickets as possible (up to 200) in order to make this a successful event.  Please try to sell a few tickets to friends and family.

Additionally, donations will help us make the most money.  Any little bit helps.  There are lots of food items needed as well as gift cards.  If you would prefer to make a small monetary donation, please let me know and we can meet up.

There are also volunteer spots in the sign up.  Any student who volunteers will get about 5 hours of volunteer time (just bring the form so we can sign it that day).

Let me know if you have any questions or need any tickets.
