Each band and color guard member has the opportunity to PURCHASE 2 Tickets for the Football game. YOU MUST pre-order via this google form by THURSDAY SEPT 17-- 3pm. All ticket money is due ASAP in the music office BUT must be paid before you can order for the next game. Checks made out to: BW Music Boosters
When arriving for the game, you will provide your name and student's name for entry. Once tickets are ordered, payment is expected and non-refundable. $7.00 per ticket

5:15 pm   Students arrive at BWHS dressed in summer uniform (new red shirt, black BW  band shorts, socks, and tennis shoes….color does not matter) and bringing their folding chair.

Students should report immediately to the south end zone with their chair and set up in the same place you did at our first home game.  THE SEATING CHART IS NOT UP FOR DEBATE AND NO SEATS ARE TO BE CHANGED FROM THE LAST GAME!  This is so we can provide accurate contact tracing if necessary.   Dots will be placed on the track so that social distancing can be followed. (This will take a bit of time so do not arrive at the last minute!)

After setting up their chair, students should report to the auditorium to get their instrument out and take their assigned indoor seat to await further instructions.

5:35 pm   Students will line up in the circle in our parade block to march into the stadium

5:45 pm   Senior band and color guard parents should meet on the southeast corner of the track in alphabetical order.  Once the band marches in, your senior will join you.

6:05 pm   Introductions of seniors and parents will begin.

6:45 pm   Pregame begins

7:00 pm   Kickoff……GO BIG WALNUT!!!!!

9:15 pm   Game over

Chaperones Needed!  New BWLS rules in effect!

We are in need of chaperones for our trips this fall!

Big Walnut Local Schools now require all chaperons/volunteers to have a background check and application on file with the school district.  To do so, please visit http://www.bwls.net and click on Parents/Community to scroll to “Volunteer Opportunities”.  Volunteers need to do this at least one week prior to the trip.  All of our chaperones and equipment bus drivers need to do this ASAP!
