My 20 year old daughter and I will be there. No drinks for us. ;)
Each day is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”

no need to have drinks - just looking forward to meeting everyone - I will be working the field at BOA SA all day Friday and Saturday so I will not get to mingle. 

 

I have invited some of the directors to join us and also hope we see some our TXBands crew at some point

Any students planning on going? I know there’s a few students on here from various Indy-traveling bands. It’d be neat to meet some of the performers that we talk so much about!

Decided to go to a concert in town where I’m in school that night—won’t get into Indy until about 9:30 Saturday morning. Hope it’s fun!

sorry - this is intended to be an adult party and I would assume that the students that are traveling with a band have a lock-down-curfew

so excited about how this is playing out - big shout out to the TXBands team for their focus on the Texas 6 Pack during this event - looks like Dan and the team already have a few bands that they will be following in prelims and semis - hope they share some of those posts on our #teamtexas facebook page as well

 

saw some posts on the #teamtexas face book page about Texas flags - so I had to order some as well

 

lets show our Texas Pride

minor correction on the location for Friday's Gathering

 

the event will be in the "Perfect Season's" room on the second floor in the "Nourish" space of the Westin Indy - still adjacent to the Shula's steak house.

 

still from 7PM to Midnight - just adjusting for the size of the crowd - 

 

hope to see those that have committed at the event at our "Friday Night Lights"

Last Update - I promise.

 

the "Nourish" Restaurant is on the second floor of the Westin Indy. it used to be Shula's steak house - now it is Nourish - the room is the "Perfect Seasons" room and is inside of the restaurant but is a private space - they have committed to have the TV set up so I can live stream FloMarching by 7Pm (Rock Band at 7:15)

 

It is not a ballroom but should be some fun cozy space for 35

 

I have invited some members of the MFA staff as well as some Texas Directors - some committed - some kinda vague. I know that MFA has asked to bring some additional members from Texas programs (Leander parents I met tonight)  and has asked if Eric Martin (MFA CEO)  and Dr. Jeremy Earnhart (COO) could drop by for a few minutes to say Hello - they are very busy this weekend, so I think their visit will be quick - in addition to TXBands and Horn Rank.

 

looking forward to meeting so many people that we all interact with on a regular basis on TXBands

 

hope to see you all Friday night - 7PM to Midnight
