40th Annual Rough Rider Marching Contest
Directors: if you're moving quickly on contest day, and especially if you have to go straight to another contest or to a football game, please consider our Box Combo Meal Special. You can pre-pay these for $7 per student and we'll have them ready for you whenever you want. Included in the Box Combo Meal: Hamburger or Sausage Wrap or 2 Hot Dogs, plus chips and either bottled water or can drink.
Awards Ceremony/Trophy Presentation
For the awards presentations, please send your Drum Majors and any other officers you want down to the scoreboard end zone two bands ahead of the scheduled time.
As always, we will have full concessions with everything from our famous Rough Rider hamburgers, smoked sausage wraps, nachos, all kinds of sweets available. Also a full selection of cold drinks. Kona Ice will be on site also. These concessions are very important to the success of our contest and we would appreciate any support you could give us by encouraging your students and parents to patronize them.
We will once again have our air conditioned Director's Retreat on the 3rd floor of the press box. We'll have a few snacks and cold drinks on hand and of course, the air conditioning.
