Guess I will do this, hopefully I can meet some people in San Antonio this year (at least I hope to be there)!! 

 

PESHMom - Lynn,  mom of Plano East alumni son(clarinet),  2012 - 2014,    Plano Senior daughter alumni (clarinet) - 2014-2016,  and a current Clark HS son (clarinet) who will go to Plano Senior 2019-2021. 

They changed our school boundary lines, hence the younger two went or are going to a different Senior High School.

 

I too am a former Clarinet (and Saxophone) player from Wisconsin, but I moved to Texas in 1988 with my job.  Although I came from a very successful band program back in Wisconsin
(which I am sad to say is no longer the case), I am continually amazed at the level of talent that Texas puts out in their band programs.  Of course, there was a little bit of sticker shock too
for my first band meeting and the fees I had to pay as well, LOL.

AllenBandDad - real name is Chris. I'm father to an Allen alum son (tuba and drum major) who is now a music major at Texas Tech and in the Goin' Band, and a junior daughter (bass clarinet). I'm a part of the "Pit Bulls" team (loaders, unloaders, builders, etc.), and my wife is the uniform coordinator. She and I are both alums of the Crowley High band in the 80s.

It takes a village :lol:

 

For home games, it's not too difficult, since the stadium is next to the school.  We'll have about 20 Pit Bulls and 20 parent volunteers at those games.  The Pit Bulls handle moving non-instrument equipment, water, snacks, and generally any other "grunt" work.  The parent volunteers handle things more directly involving the kids (i.e. chaperones).  With 700+ kids in the stands, the band directors need more eyes and ears.

 

For away games and contests, we have more Pit Bulls and volunteers.  There are two parent volunteers on each of the 15-16 buses, and 30 or so Pit Bulls.  Up to this year, we've used 4 27-foot trucks to carry instruments and props, plus a 10-foot truck for water, snacks, plume cases, and other miscellaneous stuff.  We should have 2 new semi trailers starting this year.  We also send a couple of advance scouts early in the day to wherever we are going. They work with the facility to block off space for all of the buses and truck unloading, and to rope off the band area in the stands before the Allen fan crowd arrives.  They direct the bus and truck caravan in and out, so we avoid having 20+ vehicle drivers trying to guess where to go.

I got you added, Kevin!  And I must say that I am impressed that you are still active with the band boosters.  I didn't know you could do that after your kids had left the program!  Maybe I'll re-join the Leander Band Boosters.  They'll never be rid of me!!!   :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Hah, this seems interesting!

 

I'm Jeff, I was a member at Liberty-Eylau High School from 2011-2014, marching clarinet my freshman, sophomore, and senior years, and conducting my junior year. Now I'm a student, and I volunteer working with colorguard at LE during the summers. Hopefully soon, I'll be able to help around more often. My nephew-in-law currently plays at LE as a flautist.
