Towson, MD Agenda

Hello all band parents and students!

This season is flying by and as we prepare for our trip to Towson, MD here are the details of the trip
we have put together! We have tried to make it a fun trip, while keeping it within our promised budget limits.

We will be leaving KHS in the wee hours on Saturday, October 22nd (between 2:30 and 3:00 am - 5 hour
and will return on Sunday, October 23rd around 8:00pm (give or take w/ traffic).  Our itineary while in
Maryland is as follows:

Saturday, October 22nd
***Breakfast on the bus on the way to MD.
Arrive at Johnny United Stadium in Towson, MD (performance time 9:45am, practice time 8:35am). After the
KHS Band performance, watch other bands perform (and eat lunch in the Stadium) from the stands until awards
Then off to Arundel Mall in Towson for dinner and 'shopping.'  NOTE: If you child wishes to make any purchases at the
mall other than dinner, they will need to bring their own spending money.
Check in the hotel.

Sunday, October 23rd
Breakfast at the hotel and check out.
Depart for the Baltimore National Aquarium for 10:45am check in and Dolphin show at 11:30am. 
Lunch at Baltimore’s Hard Rock Café @ 2:00 pm (approx. 1-1/2 hours)
Return home

***For breakfast on the way to Maryland on Saturday we are asking parents to make/bring a breakfast item for the
students to enjoy while on the road (in an effort to keep cost down).  Either doughnuts, muffins, fruit or whatever
you would like.  We also always ask parents to bake “goodies” for the road….usually baked goods (brownies, cookies, cake,
crackers, etc.) just so if the students have a sweet tooth or the munchies while on the road we have things for them.
This will also hold them over until they get home for dinner.

The cost of the trip is $175.00 per student which includes:
Hotel and bus cost
Lunch at the concession stands in the stadium
Dinner at the mall on Saturday night
Entry into the National Aquarium
Lunch at the Hard Rock Café

Parents that would like to attend would be $181.00 per double room or $163.00 with three to a room and this includes
the bus, hotel, lunch at Hard Rock, Aquarium entrance and ticket into the competition. All parents/chaperones are responsible
for your own meal costs.

Your deposit ($75.00) is due on Monday, October 10, 2011 and the balance is due October 17, 2011.

Please let me know  if you have any questions. Thanks and let’s have fun in Maryland!!
