Hello, Just a reminder that when we travel, we need to follow certain procedures. It is important that we make every effort to travel as a group. We often have special instructions the day of an event. However, we also want students to encourage students to participate in other activities as well and this leads to students sometimes needing to be in two places at the same time. We have over 40 fall athletes. Our band students tend to participate in every imaginable activity possible on a yearly basis and we are proud of that.
If a student has another event the same day in which we need to have special travel plans made, we need to:
1) have a note in writing from a parent (or email) - ASAP. Please include contact info (phone #, ...)
2) get that approved with the director.
3) the alternate transportation can not be a student driving (it must be an adult).
4) student/parent will need to plan to bring uniform, instrument, music, flip folder/lyre, other or make special arrangements for some of this to be taken care of.
Again, a special thanks to our many students that have been participating in multiple activities. We have a wonderful group of students that truly do represent the "Pride of Bowling Green."
The Bobcat Marching Band had a wonderful group of young guest performers Friday evening joining us in the singing of the "Alma Mater" and the "Star Spangled Banner." Many thanks to our elementary music teachers: Mrs. Boswell (Kenwood), Mrs. Wallace (Crim), and Mrs. Zweibel (Conneaut) for their efforts to prepare their students for this event. The enthusiasm from the elementary performers was contagious and had a positive effect on all of us. Thank you Bobcat Band members for making them feel welcome. Our guest conductor, Eric Boswell, was very appreciative of your kindness to allow him to conduct our Bobcat Band during the halftime show.
The Saturday Evening performance at Defiance High School was well performed and well-received. It was a beautiful evening in which seven bands came together to share their shows with other bands and audience members. Hearing and seeing the finale featuring over 900 band students and The Northwesternaires Barbershop singing group (about 30 members) was a special way to end the evening.
A special thanks to all of our Bobcat Band members that are also fall athletes and cheerleaders! With over 40 band members that are also athletes/cheerleaders, we appreciate your extra efforts to serve the BG Bobcats in multiple activities.
Bobcat Band shirt and sweatshirt designs
are available on line this year. This has been much easier for our boosters to process and easier for our band supporters. Several former band parents have also purchased them as well. Last spring the senior band class of 2015 researched our history and found that the BG band was first established in 1926. They then made a banner recognizing this. This led to the boosters including "est. 1926" on our spirit wear this year. After seeing the new shirts and sweatshirts, many have asked if they could still purchase the new spirit wear.
