Marching Band Schedule Changes
Two big changes to the Marching Band schedule:
The big football game against Santa Barbara High has been moved to Saturday, October 28th. We will leave the Simi Valley Comp early and go straight to the football game to play pep music for our team.
Oxnard has changed their comp date again, they moved to Nov.11 so we will do 2 comps in one day again. It will likely be Moorpark in the morning, and Oxnard in the afternoon. The good news is that now there will be no comp on Saturday, Nov.4 - the day of DP's Homecoming dance.
