         Students riding home with immediate family adults need to get a note initialed by Mr. B prior to departure to Blairsville. Rules do not allow me to release students to non-family or friends of any age.

         Chaperones and pit crew are VERY appreciated, but the visiting school has expectations regarding pit crew and chaperones. The visiting school furnishes the band with 15 complimentary tickets to distribute to all parents to enter any and all gates.  If more than 15 are official chaperones and pit crew travel with the band, then all must pay an equal amount to make up the difference. For example: If there are a total of 20 chaperones and pit crew, then we take up the difference. $7 x 5 extra tickets = $35 divided evenly over 20 people; approximately $1.75 each.

         Games are fundraisers for the respective programs, so please be understanding that the places we visit hope that we will spend our money there. We hope for the same when they visit us.
