@Eeyore6 southbound is open. nb bell to jaeger to dry creek

anyone know if 49 is closed to dry creek or streeter? may have to go weimar cross…
@trombone_chick the busses come from Nevada City, though, not Auburn

@pianotyke perfectionism & personal frustration are common for great musicians, but so are great performances.
the guy wiping tables at In-N-Out is whistling “In The Hall of the Mountain King”. Now we all are. Now you are.
lunch at Subway, then to the band room to build Jazz folders.
@trombone_chick don’t drink shampoo. I learned this the hard way. Just cause it smells like watermelon and strawberries doesn’t mean it is
@ralphy259 the musicians have another fee. Colorguard is not as much - because they don’t go to events all year like the band does.
@ralphy259 for Color Guard, it is $50 + the cost of a uniform. We are using the same uniform as last year, so it shouldn’t be too much.
@pianotyke has the smoke cleared up? that was hard to breathe earlier.
@ralphy259 you should start learning the routine next week.
@trombone_chick I am too - but I also realize we’re going to have a number of weekends with trips, so I’m liking being a home-body. :D
@ralphy259 our first parade is Sept 13. btw, remember to go to the website and read through the handbook / download trip forms asap
