So I've decided to do it anyway and I am leaving it up to each member whether or not they would like to be in the TxBands.com directory that I am creating.  All I'm wanting is real life names to go with your forum identity (or you can remain anonymous), and which school you (or your child, sibling, etc) represent(ed).  You can put the info here or you can private message me!  You are also welcome to add anything else that you might want to include such as instrument played, years attended, color guard member, drum major, etc.  

 

Going first, my RL name is Cindy and my kiddo was in the Leander band playing flute in the 2013 - 2016 seasons.  

 

If no one responds, I'll know the idea was a dud.   :lol:  

 

EDIT--IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, DO NOT SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFO.  There, maybe that makes it a little less creepy sounding?  If you are under 18 and are comfortable putting your RL name here publicly in the forum, that's fine.  You can also just give us your school and leave your name anonymous if you wish.

Also, if you would like your info to remain private, you can PM me, and I will mark your info as PRIVATE.  

 

Why am I doing this?  Because I am a people person and I would like to know more about those I have befriended in this awesome forum.  :)

Haha, well I didn't mean for it to sound creepy! I'm just trying to associate people with the bands they represent. Plus it's a little weird to meet people from the forum in real life, which I often do at marching competitions, and introduce ourselves by names like Duke of Bandom or Clarinet Queen instead of our RL names. :D
