(Somewhat) Weekly Update 10-26-21

*it’s not gonna rain…it’s not gonna rain…*

 

We all need to do our anti-rain dance, cross all fingers and appendages, throw salt over our shoulders…whatever we do for good luck, because it’s a busy band week! Trunk-or-Treat on Thursday, Bands in the Stands on Friday, and Echoes in the Valley on Saturday!

 

I had hoped to have a defined contingency in place by the time I sent this note out, but that’s not going to happen today, and I wanted to get schedule information out to everyone.

 

I’m currently working with Cavalcade and CVSD folks to come up with Plans B, C, D…Q? As soon as contingencies have been finalized, we will share them with everyone.
