This year’s TBA clinic will be on drill writing presented by Dr. Tim Rhea and Travis Almany from Texas A&M. The clinic will be on July 22nd at 3:30pm in CC205. Also, we will have our NAMMB membership meeting on July 22nd and 9:30am in CC205. Please show support for our organization by attending these events. You can also look forward to our retreat at Camp Tonkawa on August 20th. More details on that later.
Because of the inclement weather predicted for Saturday, the contest is being moved to the indoor facility in Carthage. There will be no admission charge but there will not be room for visitors to watch every band. Once your band has performed, you will have to leave the building so there is room for spectators for the next band. There will be an awards ceremony held in the auditorium after each classification.
All the contest information is now posted on our contest page. You can view and print the schedule and all other documents from that page.
