 STATE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS AT FSU ON DECEMBER 16 WAS 
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER!

The FHSAA class 3A state football championship held at Doak Campbell Stadium at FSU on December 16 turned out not only to be a wonderful opportunity for our marching band to perform in a huge college football stadium but also to see an exciting game that wasn't decided until the last minute.  Thank you for all who participated and helped make this a night to remember.  Thank you to  our our staff members, Grand Oliver and Clayton Barnett, for handling the music directing and to Joy Schreck for being the head chaperone.  Have a wonderful Christmas and stay safe.

FBA VIRTUAL MPA MARCH 2

Due to the pandemic concerns FBA is in a virtual format this year.  On March 2 the Symphonic Band will dress up in their concert outfits and go to the auditorium 2nd,3rd, and 4th hour to record the program and take group pictures.  The recording will then be sent to judges who will give us comments on how we are doing.  It will be something new but rather exciting.  FACCS has been cancelled for the 2021 year.  We regret that so much has been taken away from our students but we are still on track for the Spring Band Concert on May 4 which should be really good.  The Symphonic Band is playing quite well and I am so proud of all them.

MARCHING BAND FINAL REPORT

What a season this has been!   In a year like no other God has allowed us to function pretty much as normal with the exception of fewer competitions and playing only at home.  The Conquerors Marching Band ended it's regular marching season with the beautiful "Climb Every Mountain" from the Sound of Music as the homecoming court was presented.  After the game the band performed the 2020 field show "A New World".  With some added visuals and completed flag work the show was very good.  We then competed in the Ridgeview competition on November 7 (see results below), a home playoff game at our stadium during Thanksgiving weekend, and finally performed in Doak Campbell Stadium at the class 3A FSHAA state football championship.  

Thank you so much to the staff, students, and parents who have helped us out through this season and been such a blessing.  Thank you to Robert W. Smith and Jay Bocook who arranged the music and to Michael Patterson and Grant Oliver who edited the percussion parts.   Thank you to Matt Wyse who wrote the drill.   A big thank you to Mrs. Mowry who has been a wonderful assistant and godly example to our students.  Thank you  Grant Oliver, Clayton Barnett, and Ashlee Murph for your wonderful work with the percussion and guard.   You all have been a joy to work with.  Thank you parents who have fitted our students into uniforms, loaded the truck, worked the concessions, and done many other things to make the season possible.  A special thank you to Joy and David Schreck, Alice Bruce, and Chantel Douglas for your tireless work on behalf of the band.  



RIDGEVIEW COMPETITION REPORT

Congratulations to the  Conquerors Marching Band for an outstanding performance Saturday at Ridgeview High School.  We placed 2nd in class out of 5 bands and 8th overall out of the 13 bands.  We received superior ratings in music, marching, and general effect and won best in class in music.  I was very proud of the students and the great effort that they made this year to make the season a success.  Thank you Mrs. Mowry for your great help in being the assistant band director.  Thank you to Ashlee, Clayton, and Grant for your work with the guard and percussion.  We may have some playoff games and I will keep you informed about what we will play for.  





THANK YOU 2020 SENIORS FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION.  YOU WILL BE MISSED.  THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.   PLEASE CONTINUE TO PLAY AND USE YOUR TALENT AS AN ADULT.  BELOW IS A TRIBUTE TO YOU.  MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU IS MY PRAYER.   CONTINUE TO "PLAY SKILLFULLY".   Mr. Cordell

Do you have a CDL license?

Our band is  in need of parents or others with a CDL license to be available to drive buses on our trips.   Please contact Trever Yerby at Trinity 596-2301 or tyerby@tbc.org)  to get put on the insurance list and approved as a driver.  The school will pay bus drivers for their time and the boosters will cover expenses including meals and entry fees.  Our immediate need for drivers has been met but we need people who can be on standby or drive for possible playoff games as well as events in the spring.  Also if you have a truck equipped with a 5th wheel hitch we need additional standby truck drivers to pull our trailer.  Thanks for helping our band to be able to travel and haul our equipment.  

Please contact Max Cordell for further information and help in getting certified to drive.

Overlapping sports policy
 
This is a reminder that sports  (including marching band) that have overlapping seasons have  a policy from the school that you cannot just drop one sport to go to another until the first sport is finished.  Students wanting to do soccer, baseball, basketball, etc. should work carefully with your coach to come on days we do not have band practice or performances.  Your first obligation is to the band as you are graded on this and many of you receive academic credit for it.  Of course even for the Christmas concert, spring concerts and contests students are expected to give band priority as you do receive academic credit for your performances.
