Bowl Subs

Please be sure to check out a uniform on Wed, Dec. 12th between 5:30-6:30 pm. If this time won’t work for you, then please contact Chelsea Zuniga or Colter Comstock ASAP to set up an alternate time. If you need an OSU instrument, please email Andrew Raven ASAP. Please note that we use the Remind app to communicate timely information to our members – be sure you install the app or subscribe to notifications using the instructions on the previous link.

As a reminder, bowl travel is REQUIRED for all residents of Oklahoma and surrounding states (Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, and New Mexico). It is also REQUIRED for ANYONE on an out-of-state tuition waiver (it’s written into your agreement). The only people exempt are those who are both from a state other than one previously listed, AND not on an out-of-state waiver. Failure to participate in the bowl without an excuse approved by Dr. Henderson may result in loss of waiver, loss of scholarship, and/or loss of CMB membership privileges for future seasons at the discretion of Dr. Henderson, Dr. Missal, and Dr. Austin. The following is not an acceptable excuse: “My parents planned a trip during that time.” That might work if you were 15 years old and a high school student. However, you are ADULTS, and this information is published in advance on our calendar / newsletter that is sent out in June.

It’s going to be a great trip! Go Pokes!!!

CMB Leadership Retreat – August 6-8, 2018

Our 2018 Leadership Retreat will take place at Camp Egan in Tahlequah, OK. All leadership team members are required to attend, and we will start at 10:30 am on Monday, August 6th and finish up by about 1:00 pm on Wednesday, August 8th.

The following documents will help you better prepare for these important three days:

Other details:

The following meals will be provided for you while at camp: lunch and dinner on Tuesday, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Wednesday, and breakfast and lunch on Thursday. You are encouraged to bring any other snacks you may want between meals or in the evenings as well.

Please work together to carpool from your respective areas (Stillwater, Tulsa, OKC, Texas, etc.). We will be driving the large OSU van, which seats about 12 people, as well. If you would like to ride in the van, please email Andrew Raven. The van will leave Stillwater from the Seretean Center at 7:30 am on Monday morning.

If you want to check out some info about the camp yourself, including driving directions, more information about the facilities, and rec-time activity options, visit: https://okcamps.org/egan/
FYI – the director of Camp Egan, Josh Pulver, is a former CMB member and a former Pistol Pete!

In addition to the team building aspect of the weekend, one of our primary goals is to unify our own marching and teaching methods so that we are as efficient as possible during band week and throughout the season. I promise you that you will have a very positive experience throughout the camp, and that we will leave this retreat as a unified leadership team!

Instrument Check-Out:
Andrew Raven will be in charge of the instrument inventory this year. If you need an instrument for leadership camp, please either come by the band office on Friday, August 3rd from 10am-2 pm, or email Andrew to set something up. If you aren’t coming to Stillwater prior to arriving at Camp Egan, we (or another member of your section) can bring an instrument for you.

Since this is an official OSU-sponsored event, and Camp Egan is also affiliated with the Methodist church, there is ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL allowed on the camp grounds. This should go without saying, but I just wanted to make it explicitly clear. We must respect the policies of our university, as well as those of Camp Egan.
