This packet will contain a schedule, site map and staff wrist bands for access throughout the day to the Stadium and hospitality area. Should you need additional wrist bands please feel free to let us know.
The newly renovated Team dressing rooms are available for your students at their scheduled dressing time. Please indicate to your guide your intention as to the use of these facilities. We request supervision be provided while your students are making use of these facilities. Thank you for your attention to this request.
We will have plenty of vehicles thanks to Virgil Naff available to transport your equipment from the parking lot area to the field and back. Your band equipment vehicles will be directed to the immediate right as you enter the main gate of City Stadium to park and unload. Due to the proximity of the performance area, we ask that there be no playing while in the parking lot area.
A site map has been included below for your information. We will also have many volunteers/guides available to assist throughout the day. Please feel free to make any requests and we will do all we can to honor them to make your day a great one!
Our awards ceremony will begin following any the exhibition performances. We ask that all representatives of your band (drum majors, captains, etc.) meet on the sideline and line up in their order of performance beginning with Class A. There will be assistants on hand to help your students with this.
Participating Bands Schedule
A schedule of bands and times for the event has been included with this information. The classifications were based upon the number of playing members report on your registration forms and we feel this year’s classifications to be very competitive. We anticipate a wonderful and entertaining event.

Roeber will also have a tent set up on the ramp area of the performance side of the Stadium for additional purchases including individual, class and entire event performance recordings.
