As the Panther Pride Marching Band heads to San Antonio to compete in the UIL state marching contest for the 8th consecutive trip, fans and supporters are asked to encourage them with a proper send-off.
The group of nearly 250 students, directors, parents and chaperones leaves the PHS band hall at 9 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, loaded in five buses, an 18-wheeler and a box truck.
Plan to wish them well as the buses leave school and head out along U.S. 380. Several groups have made banners to show their support, so feel free to join in by making your own “good luck” signs.
The UIL band contest only occurs every other year and alternates between classifications. This year features 4A and 6A. In 2017, the contest is for 1A, 2A, 3A and 5A.
PHS performs its show, “Through the Eyes of a Child,” Monday, Nov. 7, at 3:15 p.m., which is the last time slot for prelims. If Princeton qualifies, finals begin at 6 p.m. with an opening ceremony. Complete schedule of the day attached.
