SHOW SHIRTS: The shirts are here and will be distributed to students either before they board or during the bus ride on Saturday. Parent shirts will be available on Sunday at the school when you come to pick up your students. Parent shirts that have been pre-paid can be sent home with your student if you will not be picking them up on Sunday.

DONATIONS: The boosters are providing a pizza dinner and drinks for Saturday before the game. We welcome any donations of cookies, brownies or other desert and lunch-sized bags of chips to add to the meal. The kids will also be in the mood for a snack after the game, so any leftovers will be made available once they turn in their uniforms at the hotel.

THE GAME ON TV: It has been published that the game will air at 7:00 p.m. on Fox Sports Plus. Check with your cable/satellite provider for channel information. Last year, the TV focus at half time was on analysis of the first half of the game, but if you watch and listen closely, you might catch a glimpse of the band and hear snippets of their half time show.

IF YOU GO: If you are traveling to Las Vegas to watch the game and the band, tickets are sale this week in the school front office. Prices are $5 for students and $10 for adults (payment can be made by cash or check). Tickets will also be available at the stadium on game day.

Hotel: Palace Station, 2411 W. Sahara Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89102, (702) 367-2411

STADIUM: Bishop Gorman High School, 5959 S. Hualapai Way, Las Vegas, NV 89148.

Some parents have asked for the contact information for chaperones, so I will give you mine. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the trip, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Hartgrove or a member of the Booster Executive Board.
