Below is a link to print-out a copy of the sign-up sheet for buying "seats" on the state busses.  Please print out the sheet and either, purchase your tickets at the marching band concert, or return it to Mr. Roemer by October 28th, if you plan on riding the bus.  This is a first come first serve sale.  The cost of a seat on the charter/tour bus is $10 each - this will help off set the cost of renting the busses.  Please remember that the band, guard, and prop kid members get to ride for free.

The High School Band & Guard are going to State Competition........

The Ross High School band has qualified for the 26th consecutive year for the OMEA State Marching Band Finals!  This qualification is the result of much hard work and dedication on everyone's part - students, parents, and directors.  Thanks to all the pit crew and chaperons for helping to get us this far.  I have attached a link regarding State - videos, schedules, t-shirts, directions and a link to print off the order form for the video. Video Order Form

State Competition will be on Sunday, November 7th.  Performance time will be 6:45pm at Dayton Welcome Stadium. Three Charter/Tour busses have been reserved, so the band and guard can arrive in style.  If you would like to join the band, you can purchase "seats" to ride along on the bus.  The seats will sell for $10 each.  The band, guard, and prop kid members get to ride for free. More information about meeting times and a sign-up sheet to buy seats will be emailed home later this week. You can also purchase seats at the marching band concert.
