Saturday May 28

Welcome tables will open at 10 am at Shove Park.

Please arrive between 10 am and 11:15 am to get your T-shirt and get oriented. We need to process 640 people so assume there will be some wait time.
Ideally, have someone drive you as there may not be enough parking to hold 640 cars!

Instruments & flags will be handed out on Saturday at Shove Park. We will need your cell phone number as well when we hand you an instrument (picc, tenor sax, Melli, Baritone, Sousa and all percussion).

We have a small amount of reeds, mouthpieces and sticks & mallets, so please bring your own.

You are responsible for the instrument we give you for the weekend.

You will take it with you after Saturday practice.

We will collect it back from you after the parade at West Genesee High School.

We will be rehearsing, with some breaks, from noon to 4 pm.

The Saturday late lunch is from 4-5 pm. It features Limp Lizard (like Dino) BBQ with pork, chicken and pizza. Beer, wine and soda!
Gregg Hodge’s (a WG alum) band will play for an hour as well!

Dan Thome, ’94 alumni, owns The Wildcat near Township 5 and has offered to host alumni Saturday night. He will have DJ Gary Dunes and has a sand volleyball court, lots of parking and can hold about 250 people.

For alumni, he’s running $2 domestic pints and $13 domestic buckets…beer of course.

Many may gather from around 7 pm onward in this “unofficial but fun” gathering!

Plus, if you’d like to see the original 1974 NYSFBC Championship banner, 1990 BOA Grand National first place trophy, Festival of States plaques, or many pith helmets, stop down. They’ll be there! http://www.wildcatpizzapub.com/

 


Sunday May 29

Arrive between 11:30 and 11:45 am.

We will be rehearsing, with some breaks, from noon to 4 pm.

We will have an official concert (stand still) recording at 2:30 pm. If people want to come and see something they have never seen or heard…that would be the time!

Memories Dinner Party: Doors open at 6:30 pm.

Dinner at 7:00 pm – amazing food stations and beer and wine. This will be a GREAT evening!

Gary Dunes (DJ) will “rock the house” starting at 9:30 until 11:30 pm. The party ends at midnight.

 


Memorial Day

All alumni will leave for the parade from West Genesee High School. DO NOT DRIVE TO TOP OF CAMILLUS HILL!

We have 14 buses leaving the high school starting at 8:45 in two trips to the top of Camillus Hill. 
You may park on high school property, but if there is not room, Lowes has a large lot behind their store (the old pavement practice field) for overflow parking.

There is a wooden gate that will be opened which leads to the high school property.

Following the parade, 14 Buses will drive down Main Street and pick up high school band and alumni and take everyone back to the high school in two trips.

Pick up will be on Main Street starting by Raichlin Village Hall.

High school band and some alumni on the first trip. All alumni on the second trip.

If you have a borrowed instrument you must go back to the high school following the parade to return your instrument and case.

If you drive back to the high school on your own with family, we need you to get back by the time the second round of buses returns.
