Thanks for the tip about the Southern Invitational (High School Marching Bands) it Sprayberry high is only a hop skip and a jump from our Sandy Plains location. We had a good time there this afternoon. Here is a link that shows you the schedule for the rest of the day http://www.sprayberryband.com/si/SI_schedule_2012.pdf if you are considering going. We had so much fun we might go back after dinner.
