Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are starting to put together bands for the 2013/2014 Basketball Games that occur during the Holiday season.  
1.  Students that play these games are compensated $35 for each game played payed in cash at the event.  Games typically last about two hours from the tip.
2.  Performers are asked to be in the band seats with uniform and all equipment at the Erwin Center 45 minutes before the tip-off of each game.  This means that players should arrive one hour before tip off to change and get their music book and stand (located at Erwin Center).
3.  Uniforms are stored at the Erwin Center and performers change in the band dressing room.  After the game, you can put your uniform away in the locker room and directly depart.  Players should wear a white t-shirt and gym shorts under their uniforms.
4.  Parking passes are single-use and disposable.  Players will pick up parking passes for any/all games they are playing from the Band Office Staff during regular business hours (M-F; 8am-5pm).
5.  Players should enter the Erwin Center through the Red River doors and identify themselves as band members.
6.  Once rosters are set, players are expected to find a substitute on the same instrument in the event of a conflict.
7.  There is a rehearsal in the Band Hall on Tuesday, December 10.  It is HIGHLY encouraged you attend this ONLY rehearsal is you are playing ANY games.
8.  If you are available for ANY of the following games, please fill out the following survey:
Available = you can play that game
Unavailable = you cannot play that game

Players will be selected based on the following priority:
1.  Member of the Basketball Band for Fall ’12 and Spring ’13 semesters.
2.  Member of the Basketball Band for only one of the above semesters.
3.  BSOM music majors and LHB members. 

****LHAB members are encouraged to sign up for games.  Because of seating limitations, I cannot just send an open invitation to any game.  So, if an LHAB member signs up and then is assigned to games, then that person will most definitely play.

Due to the nature of student availability over the Holiday break, I’d like to get as many people as possible to fill out the survey so that we always have options.****
