Bobcat Bands End of Year Videos Technical Difficulties

Band families,

Thank you to all who came to the Spring concert and recognition program.  The performances were all wonderful.

Congratulations to all the award winners and newly elected officers.

In regards to the technical difficulties that took place during the video presentation, sincere apologies to all senior families and students who missed out on their senior montage.  We are not sure what caused the problem but you will be receiving a copy of your own and we are hoping to be able to download it to YouTube so everyone can watch it in its entirety.

Congratulations to the Class of 2016, it has been SWEET watching you all grow as musicians and friends over the years. Best wishes to a bright future.

Michelle Crook, Band Booster President

Amazing Race BG!!!

Just a reminder that the ACT BG Amazing Race is coming up soon on Friday May 13th.  This group has generously agreed to support our upcoming Florida trip with the proceeds from this great event.  We encourage ALL our band parents to form a group and participate in a really fun evening while raising money for the Bobcat Bands at the same time. 

The fliers and entry forms are attached.  A team is whatever you wish to contain in a vehicle while roaming through BG looking for clues to the next destination and ultimately the party location at the end.  We need to make sure we get a good turnout to help support this event and our band students at the same time. 

RSVP to the BG Chamber (419-353-7945 )  

$25 per person before May 6th 

or $30 per person before May 10th

We also need 8 volunteers to hand out the clues at the various destinations throughout the course.  Please contact David Shilling (  if you can help out or have any questions. 

Thanks for your support of the Bobcat Bands and we look forward to seeing you in May for the Amazing Race!
