Football Recap

THANK YOU to everyone for making our Friday event a smooth process despite Mother Nature’s interference! And, THANK YOU to those who hung out late just to get into the stands at 10:30 PM and find out the game is postponed! We had a great warm up at the half! I know the performance would have been great! 🙂 THANK YOU to all of the Boosters for your tireless support of our students on this most wet evening!

Football @ Lakeland High

Friday is our first night to debut the Full BDMB Uniform for the season! That said, please note that the complete Under Uniform is part of the Full Uniform. All elements should be present to include:

  • BDMB T-Shirt
  • BDMB Shorts
  • BDMB Back Pack
  • Long Black Socks
  • Dinkles Marching Shoes
  • (If Ready) BDMB Ball Cap

We will go over specific protocols in class this week to teach and remind our membership on the expectations of the Full Uniform.

UF/FSU Band Day

Details will emerge this week regarding our specific itinerary. Please visit the Google Calendar Entry for Saturday’s trip to see more on our trip schedule. Members must wear their United We Stand T-Shirt on Saturday with jeans or shorts, and, if possible, should wear an older BDMB T-Shirt for Friday’s trip to Lakeland High.
