Additional Information from Previous Band Days:

FOOD: Tailgate for participating students only - cookout food (burgers and hot dogs). If you have dietary concerns, please let Dr. Brunner (brunnerm@temple.edu) know ahead of time. There will be vegetarian/vegan/gluten free/tree nut allergy options. So we can reserve enough food, indicate your preference on the registration form OR let us know if there are any other requirements.

REHEARSAL: At the South Philadelphia Super Site, corner of 10th and Bigler Streets, north of Citizen's Bank Park (same place as in the past). You can park at the Super Site for rehearsal, but please be aware all cars must be moved after rehearsal (DO NOT park at the church across the street). Parents are welcome to stay and watch rehearsal.

GAME PARKING: On your own in paid lots around Lincoln Financial Field.

T-SHIRTS: Will be distributed AFTER HALFTIME. We will take you to the opposite tunnel from where we sit and you can pick up your shirt there and then return to your seats.

UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT: All students must bring their own instruments or equipment to rehearsal WITHOUT CASES. We cannot provide instrudments and do no have any place to store cases. Guard members will only need to bring a flag. All students are asked to wear their HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND UNIFORM. If you do not have one or if you attend a school that does not have a marching band, please wear your school colors (or Temple colors if you choose -- cherry red and white).

DISMISSAL: After halftime, students are free to leave OR they can stay and play in the stands with the Diamond Band. We usually try to bring the students who stay into the ranks so you can get a feel for the pace of what the band does at a college football game. Diamond Band members can share their music, even though it's memorized.
