*** REVISED Battle Plan for Championships***

MZB,

Looking ahead at tomorrow's weather forecast, we very well may lose some outdoor time due to rain.  We WILL still have rehearsal tomorrow, even if it is indoors...however we may decide to shorten it.  That decision will be made tomorrow.

In the meantime, and in anticipation of some lost outside time, we are going to slightly revise the Battle Plan for Saturday to provide us with a little more rehearsal time before we load and leave for Hershey.  Please see the NEW battle plan below and attached.  Note the only changes are the report and start time for rehearsal.  Chaperones and truck driver should still report as originally planned.

Lastly, just a reminder that tonight's rehearsal is from 6-8:00 PM -- please notify your rides accordingly.

Thank you, see you tonight, and let's have an AWESOME rehearsal!
-Mr. Tanzos
