Cosmic Bowling Friday Night! Lanes Still Available!

The manager at Lightning Strikes in Trussville said he would hold 20 lanes for us on 12/21 until 7 PM so we could have walk-ins. Mrs. Bennett will be there to collect money.

Those who wish to bowl should arrive about 6:45 PM to allow time to get shoes, balls, and set up on lanes.

When someone arrives to bowl, Mrs. Bennett will ask which band student they are there to support. If they do not have a name, the funds will go into the general booster fund.

Let's go bowling and raise some money for the Moody Band!

All-State Correction

From John Cooper, president, ABA: There is an error in the website for the HS Flute and HS Clarinet Chromatic scale requirement.

The HS Flute says the requirement is C to C two octaves. It should say C to C three octaves. It is correct on the scale sheet on the website.

The HS Clarinet says the requirement is E to G two octaves. It should say E to G three octaves and a third. It is also correct on the scale sheet on the website.

Please get this information out to your District to avoid as much confusion as possible.
