State Competition at Ford Field
If you did not pre-purchase tickets, you MUST HAVE CASH to purchase them at Ford Field.
We play at 6:15pm on Saturday. Flight II starts performing at 3:45pm. I enjoy watching all the bands in Flight II, remember these are the top 12 bands in the state this season (in our flight), and many of them we have not yet seen perform. If you only want to see Jenison, just remember to allow yourself enough time to park, walk to the field, and find your seat. Remember your etiquette, you cannot enter the stands when a band is performing so be early.
Check out www.fordfield.com to see their bag policy. They say the same policy applies. My experience has been that they are not too strict, but it's a good idea to check it out. They will check your bag on the way in.
Nationals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy
If you are traveling to INDY, please note that our preliminary performance is at 2:45pm on Thursday, November 10.
Bands perform in prelims all day Thursday and Friday. Each band only performs once during these two days. On Friday night they announce the semi-finalist bands. If we make semi-finals we will perform again on Saturday. Finals are Saturday evening for the top 10 bands.
Our band will leave Indy after finals on Saturday evening. This is true whether or not they make semi-finals or finals. If the band is not in finals, they watch the top 10 bands perform.
Check out this website for more information about ticketing for Grand Nationals. You have to purchase separate tickets for each day and separate tickets for semi-finals and finals (even though they are both on Saturday).
Don't forget that uniform check ins occur again this Monday and Tuesday for State and then again the following Monday and Tuesday for Nationals.
