Spat Camp - Day 1

Good Evening from Spat Camp!

Day one is in the books and a lot of work was accomplished by everyone!

Here are some of the highlights:


All Lancers put their full uniform on in front of Mr. Thursby to check fit and the look with this year’s compression shirt. The shirt for sure completes the look for “The Race”! If your Lancer ordered shoes make sure that they picked them up today. If they did not, make sure they talk to a Parent Board member tomorrow at the latest so that we have them in marching shoes for the performances this week…this is a MUST!! Also in regards to new shoes have your Lancer break them in at home this week so that they are comfortable for this weekend’s parades. Everyone will be getting a uniform care outline this week and we’ll post it to the blog, so please watch for that.


Volunteer sign-ups are going well but we still have a few holes to fill for snacks later in the week and also at Meet the Lancers. Please follow the links in the prior blog posts to look at openings and sign up!


Parade Chaperone sign-ups are also open! Please follow the parade chaperone link in that blog post to see if there is a parade you could help chaperone. There are still openings this weekend so consider helping out, it is a great experience to share with your Lancer!

Raffle Tickets

Raffle tickets are available during all hours of rehearsal in the Parent Board room. The Parent Board room is located in the hallway across the cafeteria where you walk into East High School in Room #104. The raffle prize list is now available on the Lancers website under the fundraising tab and look for the Raffle Tickets section at the bottom of the page, there you will find the link. That list will be updated as we receive more prizes. If you know of a person or business who would be interested in donating a prize for the raffle, we will be accepting prizes up to the Final Concert on July 13th. They can contact the Parent Board directly or you can give us their contact info and we can contact them about donating.

Old Shoes Needed

Another reminder about our Shoe Drive! We are still taking gently used shoes for donation for our fundraiser up until Thursday evening at Meet the Lancers. We are still working towards our goal so please spread the word!

Thank You’s

Thanks to Justin and Mindy Clifton, Mark and Jesse Anderson, Shellee Hague, and Kristi Schuck of WSYIWYG for donating today’s snacks.  To Jen Olson and Cindy Scherer for working on uniform fitting.  Finally to the Parent Board on helping get the room set up and getting the week off and running!

So that is all the news from the Parent Board room. Take a few moments and come early any night and watch the Lancers at work outside. It is amazing to watch the show progress throughout the week!

Until tomorrow night, I hope everyone has a great evening!
