UpperState reminders

We hope everyone is planning to come to see the band perform tomorrow at UpperState Regional Competition. The band performs at 9 p.m. at Boiling Springs High School, but you'll want to come early to make sure you get a seat. Look for the Wade Hampton High School flag to locate other parents in the stands, and make some noise, especially when they hit those formations!

We understand that the best route to get there is to take Business 85, since some exits on I-85 are closed.

Please make sure your student has all the items below cleaned and ready (and not left at home):

  • show shirt (wear to travel there, not at morning practice)

  • white compression shirt

  • black compression shorts

  • black socks


  • gloves appropriate to instrument

  • band necklace

  • band water bottle

Please check your house for any extra items that may have gotten there by accident, especially shoes, since some are missing.
