JET Band Booster Blast 3/12/19

Message from Thomas Wooldridge, Winter Guard Director

Congratulations to our adorable Cadets for receiving 3rd place in Cadet class and to our fierce Varsity for receiving 2nd place in Scholastic National A at the TCGC Cypress Falls Competition this past weekend.  All three Winter Guards have been working so hard this season and their hard work is definitely paying off!  But the performers, staff, and I could not do all of this if it was not for the parent support and our amazing volunteers.

A BIG thank you to Luke and Laura Bolding for transporting our equipment to and from shows, Alejandra Paez for recording our performances and taking some amazing action shots, Shakira Luna for being our colorguard chaperone, Kelly Stroud for being our supportive Taylor administration, Leslie Britton and Gene Britton, Christy and David Bailey for being there to support the guards and all their needs, our phenomenal band directors, and of course our amazing floor crew!  The staff and I thank you all so much for all your love and support.

The Varsity Winter Guard will be Competing in Denton, Texas at the WGI Southwest Denton Power Regional.  This will be the first time a Taylor Winter Guard has attended a WGI Power Regional in a long time and we are extremely excited for the performers to experience this great opportunity.  The Varsity will be performing in prelims at Lewisville High School at 4:28PM.  Please come support and cheer for the kids and wear Taylor blue in the stands!
