July Update

Roster verification is finished! All of the section leaders have reported back with their final tallies and we finally have a 2019 Roster. The band is larger than we anticipated but that’s a good thing. It will be a challenge getting enough equipment and fitting everyone but the end result will be amazing.

Drill writing begins on Monday July 15, using the roster that was verified by the section leaders. There are no empty spots and no alternates. If you are a verified member of BMB and an emergency happens where you cannot meet your commitment, you MUST us know before August 1st. That will give us time to find someone to fill your spot or eliminate the spot altogether. After August 1st, a drop is not acceptable.
