Alumni Band Day 2016

The Board of Directors are excited to announce that Alumni Band Day 2016 has been set for September 17th at the football game against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs! Registration for this fun-filled event opens today inside the Members Portal (login required). You must register before September 1 in order to guarantee your spot in the weekend activities. Just like last year, only performing members will receive a free ticket into the stadium. All non-performing members and guests will need to purchase a ticket at a reduced rate of $25 per person.

However, if you are a member at one of the following levels, GBA will purchase guest tickets on your behalf at no additional cost to you:

  • Director – 1 Guest Ticket
  • Silver Director – 2 Guest Tickets
  • Gold Director – 3 Guest Tickets
  • Platinum Director – 4 Guest Tickets

Extra guest tickets can be requested during registration and you will receive an invoice for the ticket costs. This invoice MUST be paid prior to September 1st.

Please keep in mind that you do NOT have to march and/or play to participate in our activities. Buses are provided for those unable to march to the stadium.

Finally, we announced last year that we would hold a contest for #ABD2016 to determine the Honor Group this year. Whichever Band (1/2/3) can bring in the most registrations by September 1 will be crowned the Honor Group at Alumni Band Day.

Stay tuned to our website, Facebook, and Twitter feeds as we’ll be posting updates to Alumni Band Day 2016 as they are confirmed. Also, don’t forget to use the hashtag #ABD2016 on social media as you share information with your friends and family.

We look forward to seeing you all this fall!
