    Default Band travel update

    Update:

    All away games are now pep band only. Still no final word on whether or not we will travel to Duke. There is a possibility that we will be an exhibition band at a high school marching band festival during the Duke game (this is how we recruit).

    No full band on away games? How strapped for cash is the band? I figured we'd send the full SOTS to Mississippi State, Georgia State and Ole Miss at the least. Those are one day trips if you push it hard enough.

    Even one day trips cost 50K plus, then you have to figure in costs for pep band, basketball pep band, and recruitment trips

    No Georgia State either? Disappointed.

    We used to take pride being one of the only Sun Belt bands that sends their full band to away games.

    Our original plan was to take full band to GSU, but I believe that changed due to that game being their HC game.

    Unfortunately, money runs everything in the world today. It's cheaper for us to take THREE pep band trips than it is for us to take ONE full band trip. I wish we could take the full band to EVERY game, but if the funds aren't there, we can't.
