Bleachers have been placed in the north end zone in the Bobcat Band Stadium.  The HS & MS Bands will be in the set of bleachers in the end zone toward the home (west) side of the stadium.  The student cheering section will also be in the end zone in the section closest to the "away" (east) side of the stadium.  

Chaperons - please reserve these seats for the bobcat band members.  

Sno 2 Go - The snow cone vendor located near the kettle corn stand will be here again this Friday.   The band boosters receive profits from the sno 2 go sales.

Itinerary for SATURDAY, September 26th, 2015

Saturday, Sept. 26th - The Bobcat Band will travel to Anthony Wayne to attend the Anthony Wayne Showcase of Bands on Saturday from 3:33pm – 10:44pm.  It looks like another beautiful evening forecast for the BMB

Reminder:  this is a required performance.  If you are an athlete and need to make other travel arrangements to meet us at Anthony Wayne High School, we need to know that in advance in writing (and you will need to make sure you have your uniforms, instrument, lyre, flip folder….)

Re-emphasis on Travel with the BMB

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."

thanks, BC

Congrats to the BMB for their fine performances Sept 18 & 19

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.  

This Week!  A full week of beautiful weather (and no rain)!

Special Treats at 4:30pm

"No amount of thorough planning on the part of the band director can replace the willingness of members to do their part with honor and price."  Mark S. Kelly

In appreciation for the many efforts of the band throughout a busy summer and early fall, I have arranged for special treats to be provided for BMB members.  

I am asking them to come at 4:30pm to receive their special treat so that we can begin rehearsal at 4:48pm.  For athletes coming late due to practice, we might be able to work out a later time for their treat.  BC

We have around 150 4th & 5th graders joining us for rehearsal and pregame performance tonight.  

Go Bobcats!
