Message from Doug – January 21st

Very good work last night. There are still some spots to tidy, but we have a great show in the making.
 
Update: Percussion moving for the March show
As of last night, we probably had a truck from the spouse of a band member, and a different band member to drive it. In the end, we decided it was simpler and safer to rent a van for the day. Section leaders, please arrange to have help for the following tasks on March 1:
 
10:45 at Cornell: load the van
11:30 at FMT: unload the van
4:10 at FMT: load the van
4:40 at Cornell: unload the van
 
Many thanks to Doug H, who will be driving the van.
 
Here’s the playlist for Jan. 27:

Doors to the Opera House will only be open at 5:30pm for load in. Band members can enter via the elevator entrance or front door. The elevator entrance is through the double doors – with windows – toward the back of the Opera House, directly across from the Library entrance in the parking lot.

From the elevator, the stage is on the 3rd floor. From the front entrance or ground floor, the stage is on the 1st floor (meaning up the stairs and through the double doors).

Suggestion Box (from Heather – June 19, 2019)

Many of you have given the exec ideas and suggestions, which is great. It’s often hard for us to keep track, though, especially when they’re given at rehearsals and we don’t have a chance to write them down.

 
So, we now have a form! If you go to https://forms.gle/oooDpmBoQ2CEAf186 you can give us your suggestion and why you think it’s something MCB should do. All responses come directly to me, and if they fit with our five-year plan I’ll take them to the exec for a group decision on whether (and when) to go ahead.
