1:30 PM Depart. Eat the sack lunch which you brought.

7:30 PM Into the stadium.
7:45 PM Drum Major retreat and results announcement.
8:45 PM Finals begin. We drew 6th for Finals pre-draw, so we will likely be among the first 3 or 4 bands to march in Finals. Our best guess is 9:15 or 9:30.
11:45 PM Drum Major retreat and results announcement.
12:20 AM Grab a snack, and depart.
