Special Note for Freshman:
Freshman Orientation is on the same nights as Uniform Fitting.  If your section’s time conflicts with Orientation, please come over after Orientation to be fitted for uniforms.   If you do not have a conflict, please come with your section as scheduled.
Section Leaders:  
Section leaders need to be at fittings 15 minutes before their section is scheduled and stay until their section is finished.
Veteran Band Members:
Veteran band members need to check their summer uniform and Drillmasters to make sure they still fit well.  If they have grown and need to purchase new items they should do this at fittings, especially the Drillmasters, as the shipping on those is very expensive when they’re shipped separately.
