Hey Band Families!
I'm so excited for the upcoming show this weekend! It's at our Home Stadium, we are in the prelims and finals format, and we should be showcasing a lot of improvements from last weekend! Thank you by the way to all of the families who came out to support, move equipment, help with the semi or props, handed out and cleaned up dinner or donated food, and of course chaperone. Like I said, it takes a village and our village showed up and kicked butt!!
We still need some help with this festival! Here is the link for the pit crew. We currently have 24 people signed up, but as you saw at Monarch, we need about 30 people to help move equipment and set up props. If you are available this Saturday, please sign up to help. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0545afaa22a5f58-hawk1
Saturday will be a long day for the students. We will be feeding them twice (sometimes this happens). Here is the link to sign up to help with food: https://mealtrain.com/vzqe7y.

A few more things for this festival, from Legacy: The Legacy Festival will take place at North Stadium this year, NOT the 5 Star Stadium as in previous years. This information comes directly from the Legacy Boosters. Please follow these guidelines to ensure a positive day for all:
Most importantly our venue has changed! We had renovation delays at 5 Star Stadium in Thornton, so this year we will be at Adams 12 North Stadium (12500 Delaware Drive, Westminster CO). It's roughly 128th and I-25, right behind Mountain Range High School. Please review the attached Route Map to see the bus, equipment truck, food truck and spectator traffic routes and parking lots as they have all changed.
The Adams12 District COVID policy can be found online at https://www.adams12.org/health-services/2021-2022-health-and-safety-protocols. As of this this writing masks are not required when outdoors, but entry into ANY district building, including the restrooms, pressbox and concessions stand will require masks, so please tell your members to bring a mask!
Our new venue has half the seating as our old stadium, therefore we've implemented a new ticket policy. The event is broken up into 3 different sessions: AM-Prelims, PM-Prelims, and Finals. A separate ticket will be needed for each session and there will be NO COMBO tickets sold. Tickets for Finals may be pre-purchased when buying a Prelims ticket. All ticket sales are at the door. Also we will need everyone to clear the stadium after each session while we clean. We realize this may cause concern among some of your members. Please help them understand we are doing this to adjust attendance in a way that allows every band parent the chance to sit in the stands to see their student and to encourage some distancing. Once the stands are full we will allow overflow seating on the lawn (no chairs please!), but if you parents want to guarantee a seat in the stands we encourage them to arrive early in your session. Pricing has been adjusted accordingly. We ask your help to explain and support this policy. A benefit of this venue is there is considerably more parking near the stadium.
To enable the greatest number of spectators into the performance-facing stands, only paying spectators will be allowed in the West Stands of the stadium. Students will only be allowed in the East stands.
For those involved in food service to your bands, you will need to deliver all food service in the field directly north of the food truck parking area; no food lines will be allowed in the food truck parking lot. This field is open, exposed, and along I-25, so if it's wet or sunny you may want to bring canopies or tarps.
As in the past we will again offer concessions, programs, spiritwear and patches for sale.
