If anyone knows ANYONE who needs a place to live starting in September (in College Park, MD/Berwyn Heights, MD), and can pay $470/month, plus a $470 security deposit, let me know ASAP.

I need a 6th and final roommate in my house, and we're supposed to sign the lease and give the security deposit within the week. I'm one person short, so $470 short.

Who can help me out? I've tapped out all my resources.

Anyone interested in going to the DCI competition in Allentown August 4-5? I know I'll be there on the 5th, since it doesn't conflict with work and my cousin marches with Seattle Cascades. I haven't decided about the 4th, since I usually don't get out of work until 6 and it starts at 6:30.

Hey guys,

I just wanted to say that I had an awesome time in marching band and I wanted to thank you guys for convincing me to try it out.

I don't know if I'm coming back next year because of some health issues - but I'm really glad I did it this year and I hope I can come back next year.

- Nadine

Yay tubas!

Hey Band!

If there's anyone interested in learning more about Tau Beta Sigma, National Honorary Band Sorority (incorporated), then this is the time to check it out! We will be having our Fall Rush Events this week, so make sure you stop by. There's always plenty of food when the Sisters get together.

Wednesday, 9/8 after Marching Band, before U-Band
'Breakfast for Dinner'
Pancakes, French Toast, OJ, and information about becoming a Sister of TBS
2105 Allegany Hall (if you need directions, I'll be on the field to help people over)

Thursday, 9/9 Tea and Presentation (Semi-formal) CSPAC, 9pm
"Formal" introduction of prospective members to the Sorority.
We really do drink Tea! Even if you didn't make it to the first event, this is the one to come to.

If you have any questions, feel free to IM me, or find me at band practice tonight. Good luck to everyone in the new semester, and hope to see you at Rush!

Underarmour shirts, part II (for the ladies in the band)
I went to Sports Authority this evening to try on the UnderArmour shirt (#0084). I tried on the small. I'd say the men's small for this style fits like a women's XL t-shirt. It's about the same size as the free XL t-shirts we get so often on campus-- it's a little smaller than those. Just for reference, I normally wear a small shirt size in women's petites. So the UnderArmour men's small of style 0084 is huge on me. I think I'll see if I can just buy my own women's shirt, and pay the extra money for it. I cannot fathom spending $14 on one oversized t-shirt, much less $28 on two.

I recommend trying on this shirt before buying it. For those in the College Park area, there is a Sports Authority in Rockville-- the one in Greenbelt is closed.

Current Mood: frustrated

I think at least a couple people have been wondering about the UnderArmour shirt size. Here's a link to the UnderArmour webpage about the shirt (#0084). You have to have Flash installed to view it. There's a sizing chart there too.

Current Mood: awake for now

get. maybe a large? am clueless.

the chances of me, freshman arts scholar, getting a
roommate who is also in marching band, are very small, right? ::crosses
fingers:: ::it would be neat to have a single room for a week::
while i'm at it, what's a good number of credits to take, including marching
band? I have 16 so far.

Wow, you guys are intense, thanks for all the info.

I don't think I'll end up joining the marching band - I don't want to drive myself crazy my first year. But what are other bands at UMD like? Is there a pep band for winter sports? Can I join a jazz band if I'm not that good? I've been playing the saxophone since the third grade and I can play decently but I'm definitely not going to be a music major.

I really don't want to just give up my music. Thanks again, guys.

I'm going to be a freshman. I've been in my high school marching band for four years and the jazz band as well. What's the UMD marching band like? I'm thinking about getting involved. What about any non-marching bands? I play the tuba (marching band) and the saxophone (jazz band) and I'd really like to continue but I'm not sure I can committ to marching or not.

Rush Event- Tau Beta Sigma
Hello cyber-bandies!

This friday, Tau Beta Sigma, Maryland's only Honorary Band Service Sorority, will be holding its Spring Rush Event. If you're interested in joining and serving the bands with us, or would like just to learn who we are and what we do, this is the event for you.

This year, when you're studying for exams, take a break with the Sisters for some games! Monopoly, Taboo, Sorry!, Scrabble, card games, frisbee... we've got it all. Join us at 3pm in the basement of the Armory on Friday, May 13th!

Hope to see you there.

Instrument Drive
Hello all,

Sigma Alpha Iota is doing an instrument drive to help Carole Highlands Elementary and Ridgecrest Elementary. The idea is to help students who want to be in band but neither they nor their school can afford to buy or rent instruments. So, if you or someone you know has an extra/spare instrument, please let me or any SAI member know. Donations are tax-deductible; we have receipts for your records. For more info, visit www.sai-ge.org, or feel free to ask. Thanks!

Bowl Game
Anyone think we're going to make it to a bowl game this year? Even a crappy one? I know we can't say for sure yet, but I need to know any estimates people have. I want to go to the ΑΦΩ national convention in Denver from Dec 27-30, but I don't want to pay for plane tickets, a room, and registration only to find out I can't go. On the other side of the coin, if I wait too late, I'm gonna pay out the ass for airfare. It's a once-every-two-years kinda thing, but bowl games are not exactly every day either. Any projections?
