This is going to be an incredibly long day (though much shorter than some of the other LCPS bands). This is a competition unlike anything I have seen in the Commonwealth and proves to be exciting and incredibly educational for our students, staff, and parents.

Students will need to bring ample money for meals throughout the day – we will be stopping for a fast food lunch on the way to Lynchburg and concessions will be available in both stadiums (only Williams Stadium at Liberty University will be accepting credit cards). A VMBC Championships t-shirt will also be available for sale at the event.

Students should also plan for weather-appropriate apparel – the 10 day forecast is showing a high in the 50s and a low in the 30s!

A SignUpGenius for chaperone volunteers will be sent out soon.
